Video: Should Mateusz Gamrot get marquee UFC lightweight fight after injury TKO win?

What could’ve been a signature win for Mateusz Gamrot’s resume was dimmed at UFC Fight Night 228 after a knee injury for Rafael Fiziev prematurely halted their main event.

Fiziev (12-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) tore his ACL on a kick attempt in the second round of the lightweight headliner this past weekend at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Gamrot (23-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) was awarded the victory by TKO, but many in the MMA community refused to give him full credit because of how the result unfolded.

Ultimately, Gamrot has the victory on his record, and has won six of his past seven inside the octagon. That should warrant a big name at 155 pounds, but there’s no clear direction for him to take going forward.

So, how should the promotion and divisional matchmaker Sean Shelby proceed? That was a topic of discussion on this week’s “Spinning Back Clique,” with panelists Matthew Wells, Nolan King and Danny Segura joining host Mike Bohn to give their takes on the situation.

Watch the video above or the full episode of this week’s “Spinning Back Clique” below.
