UFC 137 concluded with its winners moving forward into title shots and title contention—but what about the losers?
Heading into the event, fans knew they were going to see the final fight of legendary fighter Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic. The heavyweight announced it would be his final fight at the pre-fight press conference, win or lose.
What fans didn’t know is that it may also have been the end of former UFC champion B.J. Penn’s career after the future Hall-of-Famer dropped a brutal three-round decision to Nick Diaz.
Other fighters that came up short include Matt Mitrione, Jeff Curran and George Roop.
This is what should be next for them.
