A number of new UFC bouts have been revealed for upcoming fight cards, and I’ll give my thoughts on them in the current MMA odds and ends.
Damir Hadzovic vs. Marco Polo Reyes, UFC Fight Night 145
Lightweights Damir Hadzovic and Marco Polo Reyes are put to fight at UFC Fight Night 145, taking place February 23 in The O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. Hadzovoc (12-2) is 2-2 at the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Nick Hein. Reyes (8-4) is 4-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a KO win over Matt Frevola. Another fascinating booking here from the UFC involving two fighters on the upswing. I have a tendency to lean Reyes just because we’ve seen more variety in their own ability to complete a fight, but it is definitely close.
Gian Villante vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk, UFC Fight Night 145
Light heavyweights Gian Villante and Michal Oleksiejczuk may even fulfill at UFC Fight Night 145. Villante (17-10) is 7-7 in the UFC and conquered Ed Herman by split decision in his final struggle. Oleksiejczuk (12-2, 1 NC) fought to a No Contest against Khalil Rountree in his UFC debut after being suspended for PEDs. Initially he’d won the battle by decision and showed off several solid wrestling laps from the fight. In spite of all the PED issues, I’d still have to favor Oleksiejczuk here as I expect most bettors will try and fade Villante.
Alejandro Perez vs. Song Yadong, UFC 235
An intriguing bantamweight bout between prospects Alejandro Perez and Song Yadong is set for UFC 235, occurring March 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Perez (21-6-1) is 7-1-1 in the UFC and is currently on a seven-fight unbeaten streak that includes a conclusion win over Eddie Wineland in his last outing. Yadong (13-3, 2 NC) is 3-0 so much in the UFC and at just 21 is one of the best young fighters in the division. This is a great fight, and the two men have bright futures in the sport. But based on all of the hype I’d expect Yadong to be a slight favorite here at opening.
Maryna Moroz vs. Sabina Mazo, UFC on ESPN two Women’s strawweights Maryna Moroz and Sabina Mazo will fulfill at UFC on ESPN, which takes place March 30 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Moroz (8-3) is 3-3 at the UFC and also lost a decision to Angela Hill in her final bout. Mazo (6-0) is making her UFC introduction and at only 21 is one of the most adorable fighters in the division. Though Moroz has more experience from the Octagon, Mazo is a super prospect and I would expect her to be the favorite here.
Paul Craig vs. Kennedy Nzechukwu, UFC on ESPN 2 And finally, light heavyweights Paul Craig and Kennedy Nzechukwu will meet at UFC on ESPN 2. Craig (10-3) is 2-3 from the UFC and has been filed by Jim Crute in his final outing. Nzechukwu (6-0) is making his UFC debut after a powerful TKO win on the Contender Series. Anytime you are able to fade Craig you have to do it, and I anticipate Nzechukwu to be a huge popular here as a consequence of that.
