3 Weekends of Amazing Matches Left in May: Gordon Ryan, Jake Shields, Dillon Danis, Gilbert Burns, Eddie Cummings, Paulo Miyao et al

Given the two weeks off from the UFC waiting for the HW strap to go up for grabs between Miocic and Dos Santos, you'd be forgiven for thinking there's not a lot going on otherwise. As it turns out, a ton of notables are competing in grappling over the course of what remains in May. Up and coming bantamweights will be visible for free on youtube tomorrow as part of the Onnit Invitational 4. Ethan Crelinsten returns to action since winning the ADCC trials on the west coast amongst othre notables at Onnit's next invitational event tomorrow. Gordon Ryan returns to action to face Eliot Kelly. Dillon Danis and Jake Shields beef it out on May 14th. John Combs returns since his foot lock loss to Bronovskis to face Gilbert Burns & Justin Rader (fresh off a loss to Garry Tonon) returns to face Bruno Frazatto. Last but not least Eddie Cummings returns after his frustrating match with Samir Chantre.
