Filed under: Featured , Featured Videos , News , UFC , Videos UFC Fight Night 101’s main card, which aired Saturday on FS1 from Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, featured stoppages in three of six bouts. The headlining act, however, finished in perhaps the most crushing fashion of all when Robert Whittaker (17-4 MMA, 8-2 UFC) brutalized Derek Brunson (16-4 MMA, 7-2 UFC) for a first-round knockout victory to further establish himself at a top middleweight contender. Whittaker was a big winner on the card, but so were Andrew Holbrook (12-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC), Omari Akhmedov (15-4 MMA, 4-3 UFC), Alex Volkanovski (14-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), Tyson Pedro (5-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Danielle Taylor (8-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who all picked up wins over their respective opponents. After every event, fans wonder whom the winners will be matched up with next. And with another night of UFC action in the rearview mirror, it’s time to look forward, put on a pair of Joe Silva and Sean Shelby’s shoes, and play UFC matchmaker for UFC Fight Night 101’s winning fighters. * * * * Danielle Taylor Jocelyn Jones Lybarger Should fight : Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger Why they should fight : After losing an underwhelming fight in her promotional debut, Taylor picked up her first UFC victory with a largely forgettable and somewhat debatable split decision over Seo Hee Ham.
