Price is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC’s welterweight division. The welterweight contender has time and again put up some of the most exciting fights inside the Octagon, and continues to be a fan favorite. So the options are actually quite a lot, but it will be interesting to see how Niko Price fares inside the Octagon going forward in his UFC career.
Who should Niko Price fight next?
Price could be looking at facing a ranked opponent going forward in his UFC career. After dropping back-to-back losses to Vicente Luque and Michel Periera, and the win over Donald Cerrone turning to a No Contest, the win over Alex Oliveira should be a breath of fresh air.
Santiago Ponzinibbio could be a fresh option for Price. The Argentinian fighter made his return to the UFC last year, and while the comeback wasn’t as e expected, he made a quick turnaround and is currently on a win-streak. Ponzinibbio is an efficient striker, with incredible power in his hands. Both Price and Ponzinibbio like to strike, and it won’t be wrong to say that Santiago Ponzinibbio vs Niko Price has Fight of the Night written all over it.
Other exciting options include Kevin Lee. The former lightweight contender did not quite get the comeback he would have hoped for in his UFC’s welterweight debut. He will look to make a statement in his next performance, and who is better than the fan-favorite Niko Price. Geoff Neal and Sean Brady are other exciting options.
Price is quickly becoming a huge name in the UFC, and his popularity could plummet him to exciting match-ups in the coming future. Who would you want Niko Price to face next?
