    Erik Koch vs. Drew Dober added to UFC 203

    By Danny Segura @DannySeguraTV on Jun 29, 2016, 9:03p

    A lightweight bout featuring Erik Koch and Drew Dober has been added to UFC 203. The news was first reported by Cleveland.com on Wednesday.

    Koch (15-4) recently returned to MMA competition, submitting Shane Campbell at UFC Fight Night 88 back in May. Prior to that, the 27-year-old Koch was out of the octagon for almost two years due to injury.

    A few interesting match ups announced this week.

    Firstly, I think Condit beats Maia, but that's a very close fight. I don't know that Maia will be able to close the distance well enough to get Condit to the ground without taking SUBSTANTIAL punishment in the process. Obviously if he can get it down, that's in Maia's favour, but I just don't see him being able to finish Condit (who hasn't had a submission loss in over a decade), and I don't see him being able to control him on the ground for 2 rounds either. And even if he does manage to win the first couple rounds, I think he gassed himself enough that Carlos would have a great chance at a 3rd round finish. Like
    I said though, I don't see Maia making it to the clinch easily, as Condit has some of the most vicious knees out there, so I'm leaning towards a TKO for Condit.
    Im honestly not sure who to pick in the Magny/DHK fight. Both of these guys tend to have a smothering, high-paced fight game, and I think this will be one hell of a fight either way. If I had to pick, I think Magny has the slightly better gas tank, and will be able to push the pace a little bit more and will come out with a decision win.
    And I know that Koch had a few losses lately, but Drew Dober? This is a crazy mismatch to me. I think Koch runs right through him in this fight. Dober is a tough guy, but this is Koch's fight all day IMO. Dober has shown to be a tough out so far in the UFC, but I think Koch has him beat in every aspect of the game. Would be a HUGE win for Dober if he could pull it off though.

    Decent fight, but some drop off for Means........going from the potential Matt Brown fight, to Sean Strickland.

    Artem Lobov vs. Chris Avila targeted for UFC 202

    By Ariel Helwani @arielhelwani on Jul 1, 2016, 9:17a

    At UFC 202, the Diaz vs. McGregor rivalry will extend beyond the main event.

    The UFC is working towards adding a featherweight fight between Artem Lobov and Chris Avila to the Aug. 20 card, MMA Fighting has learned.

    C.B. Dollaway headed to light heavyweight, booked for UFC 203

    By Lucas Rezende @rezenluc on Jul 1, 2016, 5:00p

    In desperate search for a win, C.B. Dollaway will look for a new result in the light heavyweight division, when he meets Francimar Barroso at UFC 203, as Combate reported.

    Currently on a three-fight skid, losing to the likes of Nate Marquardt, Michael Bisping and Lyoto Machida, Dollaway (15-8) hasn't had his hand raised since an unanimous decision win over Francis Carmont in May 2014. The change marks the first time he will try his luck at 205.

    Maybe helps Dolloway's weight cut and such, but I don't see much success up at 205 for him
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Nor do I, he's gonna be way out of his depth at 205, although the talent pool is far shallower.
