Ronaldo Souza    UFC    Middleweight
Souza underwent pectoral surgery Thursday, Guilherme Cruz of reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Souza allegedly suffered a pectoral rupture during his surprise loss to the likes of Robert Whittaker at UFC on FOX 24 back in mid-April. A timeline for his return won't be determined until after he begins physical therapy.
Nate Marquardt    UFC    Middleweight
Marquardt is scheduled to fight Vitor Belfort at UFC 212 on June 3 in Rio de Janeiro, Danny Segura of reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 38-year-old Marquardt appears to be approaching the twilight of his career considering the veteran has dropped seven of his last 10 fights, with his last coming at the hand of Sam Alvey back on Jan. 28 on a unanimous decision. However, Belfort has also been struggling, as the 40-year-old is just 1-4 across his last five bouts himself.
Vitor Belfort    UFC    Middleweight
Belfort is scheduled to fight Nate Marquardt at UFC 212 on June 3 in Rio de Janeiro, Danny Segura of reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This fight will mark the last of Belfort's storied career, as the 40-year-old MMA legend simply doesn't believe his body can handle the grueling demands of the sport for much longer. Considering he's just 1-4 across his last five bouts, we'd probably agree. Fortunately for him, his opposition hasn't fared much better of late; the 38-year-old Nate Marquardt is 2-4 across his past six.
Haim Gozali    Bellator    Welterweight
Gozali will face Ryan Couture in a welterweight contest at Bellator 180 on June 24 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Gozali has a 7-3 record with six submissions but has not been a big part of the fight scene for a while. He has only had one fight (November 2016) since 2012, which ended in a submission (heel hook) over Zane Clerk.
Ryan Couture    Bellator    Lightweight
Couture will face Haim Gozali in a welterweight matchup at Bellator 180 on June 24 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Couture faces Haim Gozali after back-to-back losses this year (10-5 overall). The American will be moving up a weight class from his normal lightweight category for this fight.
Jared Cannonier    UFC    Light Heavyweight
Cannonier will face Steve Bosse in a light heavyweight bout at the TUF 25 Finale on July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Dave Doyle at reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Cannonier matches his opponent, Steve Bosse, in being a stand-up artist. He has less significant strikes landed per minute (3.28 to 5.99) than Bosse but his accuracy is slightly higher (60 percent to 52 percent). "The Killa Gorilla" will probably avoid the mat because his takedown statistics show a 30 percent takedown defense with only two unsuccessful takedowns attempted on offensive end in four fights with the UFC. Cannonier proved to be a tougher challenge than expected in a unanimous-decision loss to Glover Teixeira in his last bout, so he may be one to look out for.
