Reminder: Busy July Remaining for the UFC

July already saw a great Gaethje debut, and an Interim Middleweight champion crowned.

But as it is, Gunnar Nelson lost his fight this weekend in Scotland as he works his way up the food chain to what undoubtedly I still think will be a title shot eventually. I don't really know what else for that card mattered in the short term, but some mid level Euro/UK talent got exposed or a notch up if they were facing fellow countrymen. 

July 22nd - Weidman vs Gastelum. Bermudez vs Elkins, Thomas Almeida vs Jimmie Rivera, Oliveira vs LaFlare, Natal vs Chico.

July 29th - the big enchilada.....Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier rematch, Tyron Woodley faces Demian Maia, Cyborg faces Evinger.....3 title fights in one night. Cerrone vs Lawler, Manuwa takes a fight he doesn't need against a guy coming off an impressive UFC debut - Oezdimir, Renan Barao vs Aljamain Sterling, Northcutt vs Makdessi, and Burkman vs Dober.

This card alone is bonkers. Even if 2-3 cards drop off, it'll be better than most of the recent UFC PPV's in memory.
