On To the Next One: Matches to make after UFC 284


After the historic champion vs. champion main event of UFC 284 in Perth, Australia, what is next for Islam Makhachev after defeating UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski to retain his lightweight title? After the most impressive performance Rodriguez has ever put in, it appears that Volkanovski will be facing the interim featherweight champion Yair Rodriguez. But where is Josh Emmett now after being submitted in round two of the comain event?

On an all-new edition of On To the Next One, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck and Alexander K. Lee attempt to answer those questions from a matchmaking perspective following the promotion’s second pay-per-view event of 2023. Future matchups for Jack Della Maddalena, Justin Tafa, Parker Porter’s knockout winner, and many more are also discussed.
