Potential Cuts Following UFC on ESPN 53: Who’s at Risk

Oh boy, UFC on ESPN 53 was quite the scene, wasn’t it? Not exactly the red carpet of names we usually look for, but hey, it still had its moments. Some of those fights? Absolutely stole the show.

Now, about Igor da Silva. Talk about a wild card, right? The guy got disqualified and booted out faster than you can say “bite.” Yep, you heard that right. He actually bit Andre Lima during their match. Talk about leaving a mark, but not the kind you want.

So, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty. There are a few fighters who, well, might be sweating bullets right now. Their careers are kinda hanging by a thread after some tough losses. It’s a rough spot to be in, for sure.

Now, onto Ricardo Ramos. His fight with Julian Erosa? Pure whirlwind. Ramos had a moment early on, landing a solid punch that probably had Erosa seeing stars. But Erosa? The guy’s like a phoenix, rising from the ashes. He got back up, dusted off, and before Ramos knew it, he was caught in a guillotine choke that had him tapping out faster than you can say “uncle.”

Ramos has had a bit of a rough patch, losing three out of his last five. But let’s not write him off just yet. The dude’s been up against some of the best since he joined UFC in 2017. He’s got time to turn things around, but it’s gonna take some serious soul-searching.

Cody Gibson, oh Cody. His dance with Miles Johns didn’t exactly go as planned. Johns had the upper hand from the get-go, landing shots that probably still have Gibson feeling woozy. Gibson did have a moment in the second round, but Johns wriggled out and took back control, leaving no doubt in the judges’ minds by the end.

Gibson’s now 0-2 since his UFC comeback. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s not the end of the world. He’s got to take these losses, learn from them, and come back swinging. It’s all about the comeback, right?

So, there you have it. A night of ups and downs, but hey, that’s the fight game for you. Always keeps you on your toes.
