A number of new UFC bouts are added to three forthcoming fight cards. Here are the bouts, together with my first ideas on these.
Alex White vs. Dan Moret, UFC Fight Night 146
Lightweights Alex White and Dan Moret are set to clash at UFC Fight Night 146, taking place March 9 at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Nolan King broke the information. White (12-5) is 3-5 from the UFC and is coming off of a submission loss to Jim Miller. Moret (13-4) was knocked out by Gilbert Burns in his UFC debut. Coin-flip fight here and that I expect the line to be a Pick’em.
Grant Dawson vs. Julian Erosa, UFC Fight Night 146
Featherweights Grant Dawson and Julian Erosa will even meet at UFC Fight Night 146. MyMMANews.com broke the information. Dawson (12-1) is finally making his UFC debut after a USADA case kept him on the sidelines. Prior to his suspension, he had won about the Contender Series to find a UFC bargain. Erosa (22-6) is 0-2 in the UFC and has been pumped out by Devonte Smith in his last outing. This looks like a scenario to fade Erosa in and take Dawson for the triumph.
John Makdessi vs. Nasrat Haqparast, UFC Fght Night 148
A fun fight between lightweights John Makdessi and Nasrat Haqparast is place for UFC Fight Night 148, taking place March 23 in Bridgestone Arena at Nashville, Tennessee. Makdessi (16-6) is 9-6 at the UFC and is coming from back-to-back choice wins over Ross Pearson and Abel Trujillo. Haqparast (10-2) is 2-1 at the UFC and won”Battle of the Night” because of his decision win over Thibault Gouti. I think Makdessi is a great challenge for Haqparast at this point of his career, but since he’s only 23 you need to prefer Haqparast here.
Bobby Moffett vs. Bryce Mitchell, UFC Fight Night 148
Additionally, featherweights Bobby Moffett and Bryce Mitchell will battle at UFC Fight Night 148. Tom Taylor of BJPenn.com broke the information. Moffett (14-3) defeated Chas Skelly via controversial technical enhancement in his UFC debut. Mitchell (10-0) defeated Tyler Diamond in his own Octagon debut. This ought to be a competitive fight, but my initial lean is Moffett.
Ross Pearson vs. Desmond Green, UFC on ESPN 2 Lightweights Ross Pearson and Desmond Green will meet UFC on ESPN 2, which takes place March 30 in Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Pearson (20-15, 1 NC) is currently 12-12, 1 NC at the UFC and has dropped five of the last six fights overall. Green (21-8) is just 2-3 from the UFC himself. This is at the very least a struggle Pearson could be competitive in, but I have to prefer Green.
Sheymon Moraes vs. Sodiq Yusuff, UFC on ESPN two At the same time, an intriguing featherweight bout between Sheymon Moraes and Sodiq Yusuff was added to UFC on ESPN 2. Rodney James had the news. Moraes (11-2) is currently 2-1 in the UFC and is coming from an excellent win over Julio Arce. Yusuff (8-1) knocked out Suman Mokhtarian in his UFC debut. Moraes is a very solid fighter with more experience, but it is difficult to bet against the superb prospect Yusuff at this point, and that I expect him to be favored.
