A women’s flyweight bout between Luana Carolina and Priscila Cachoeira is place for UFC 237, occurring May 11 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Cachoeira is filling in on short notice for its injured Yanan Wu. The news was broken by combate. Carolina (5-1) is riding a five-fight win streak since losing her MMA introduction, including a success on the Brazilian Contender Series past summer. Cachoeira (8-2) has lost both of her UFC bouts to Valentina Shevchenko and Molly McCann. At this point, bettors will be looking to fade Cachoeira because of all the damage she has been taking in her struggles, and I would expect Carolina to be the favorite here despite having no expertise within the Octagon.
Eddie Wineland vs. Grigory Popov, UFC 238
An exciting bantamweight bout between Eddie Wineland and Grigory Popov has been added to UFC 238, taking place June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The Fight Country broke the news. Wineland (23-13-1) is 5-7 total from the UFC and is coming from consecutive decision losses to Alejandro Perez and John Dodson. He generally just fights after a year now, and has not won a fight because a TKO win over Takeya Mizugaki in 2016. Popov (13-1) is riding a nine-fight win streak on the Asian regional scene into his UFC debut, though he has not fought anyone of note. Something interesting to keep in mind is that we’ve won two fights via the rarely-seen gogoplata submission. Still, I expect most bettors to seem to fade Wineland here, and Popov will most likely be favored despite his lack of UFC experience.
Markus Perez vs. Deron Winn, UFC Fight Night 154
An intriguing middleweight bout between Markus Perez and Deron Winn is place for UFC Fight Night 154, occurring June 22 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Combate broke the news. Perez (11-2) is currently 2-2 at the UFC and is coming from a submission win over Anthony Hernandez. Winn (5-0) is coming off of a determination win over Tom Lawlor at Golden Boy MMA 1 and has been considered a top prospect at 205lbs, however he will be falling down in weight for this battle. Although Perez has looked great in his victories, he’s a bit too inconsistent for my liking and as a top prospect I expect Winn to be the favored.
Molly McCann vs. Ariane Lipski, UFC Fight Night 154
Additionally added to UFC Fight Night 154 is a women’s flyweight bout between Molly McCann and Ariane Lipski. ESPN had the news. McCann (8-2) is currently 1-1 at the UFC and is coming from a decision win over the above Cachoeira. Lipski (11-4) was a champion in KSW and had a very lengthy win streak before arriving in the UFC, but it was snapped by a decision loss to Joanne Calderwood. The Calderwood fight was shown to be a difficult style matchup to get Lipski, yet this struggle against McCann should be in her wheelhouse, and I expect her to get her hands raised.
