Israel Adesanya retained his middleweight gold against Robert Whittaker with a unanimous decision victory.

Meanwhile, Jared Cannonier stopped Derek Brunson in a brutal fashion. Tai Tuivasa, on the other hand, earned the biggest win of his career in KO win against Derrick Lewis in the co-main event.

After such exciting results, we take a look at 5 fights to make after UFC 271.

Robert Whittaker  vs  Marvin Vettori

 Marvin Vettori is the next best middleweight that Robert Whittaker can fight. Vettori is fresh off a win against Paulo Costa.

Robert Whittaker vs Paulo Costa

Despite the loss, Paul Costa put up an impressive performance. Whittaker and Costa were scheduled to face each other in the past, and the stylistic aspect of this match-up makes this an exciting fight! 

Israel Adesanya vs Jared Cannonier

The chances of this happening are quite big! Adesanya answered the call from Jared Cannonier during the post-fight Octagon interview and expressed his desire to compete in June, later this year.

Marvin Vettori vs Derek Brunson

Derek Brunson has stated that he wants to retire after this next fight. Marvin Vettori could be an exciting option for Brunson, considering Vettori's fighting style which compliments wrestling, and the position he is at in the UFC's middleweight rankings.

Stipe Miocic vs Tai Tuivasa

If Jon Jones wants to fight Francis Ngannou next, and not Stipe Miocic, Tai Tuivasa could be an exciting option. Tuivasa has hype behind him, and his KO win over Derrick Lewis makes him a dangerous opponent for any fighter.
