Quite a few new UFC bouts are added to three forthcoming fight cards. Here are the bouts, together with my first thoughts on them.
Alex White vs. Dan Moret, UFC Fight Night 146
Lightweights Alex White and Dan Moret are set to clash at UFC Fight Night 146, occurring March 9 at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Nolan King broke the information. White (12-5) is 3-5 in the UFC and is coming from a submission reduction to Jim Miller. Moret (13-4) was knocked out by Gilbert Burns in his UFC debut. Coin-flip battle 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 also fulfill at UFC Fight Night 146. MyMMANews.com broke the information. Dawson (12-1) is eventually making his UFC debut after a USADA case kept him on the sidelines. Before his suspension, he’d won about the Contender Series to get a UFC bargain. Erosa (22-6) is 0-2 in the UFC and was pumped out by Devonte Smith in his last outing. This looks like a scenario to fade Erosa in and take Dawson for the win.
John Makdessi vs. Nasrat Haqparast, UFC Fght Night 148
A fun struggle between lightweights John Makdessi and Nasrat Haqparast is place for UFC Fight Night 148, taking place March 23 at Bridgestone Arena in 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”Fight of the Night” for his decision win over Thibault Gouti. I think Makdessi is a superb challenge for Haqparast at this stage of his career, but since he is only 23 you need to favor Haqparast here.
Bobby Moffett vs. Bryce Mitchell, UFC Fight Night 148
Also, featherweights Bobby Moffett and Bryce Mitchell will battle at UFC Fight Night 148. Tom Taylor of all 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 Octagon debut. This ought to be a competitive struggle, but my first lean is Moffett.
Ross Pearson vs. Desmond Green, UFC on ESPN two Lightweights Ross Pearson and Desmond Green will meet UFC on ESPN two, which takes place March 30 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Pearson (20-15, 1 NC) is 12-12, 1 NC at the UFC and has lost five of the last six fights overall. Green (21-8) is just 2-3 in the UFC himself. This is at least a struggle Pearson could be competitive in, however I still have to prefer Green.
Sheymon Moraes vs. Sodiq Yusuff, UFC on ESPN two As well, an intriguing featherweight bout between Sheymon Moraes and Sodiq Yusuff was added to UFC on ESPN 2. Rodney James had the information. Moraes (11-2) is 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 really solid fighter with much more experience, but it’s hard to bet against the super prospect Yusuff now, and I expect him to be favored.
