Quite a few new UFC bouts are added to three upcoming fight cards. Here are the bouts, together with my initial thoughts 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, occurring March 9 in Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Nolan King broke the news. White (12-5) is 3-5 from the UFC and is coming from a submission loss to Jim Miller. Moret (13-4) was pumped out by Gilbert Burns in his UFC debut. Coin-flip battle here and that I expect the line to be a Select’em.
Grant Dawson vs. Julian Erosa, UFC Fight Night 146
Featherweights Grant Dawson and Julian Erosa will also meet at UFC Fight Night 146. MyMMANews.com broke the news. Dawson (12-1) is eventually making his UFC debut following a USADA case kept him on the sidelines. Before his suspension, he had won on the Contender Series to find a UFC bargain. Erosa (22-6) is 0-2 at the UFC and has been pumped out by Devonte Smith in his final outing. This looks like a situation to fade Erosa in and take Dawson for the win.
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 in Nashville, Tennessee. Makdessi (16-6) is 9-6 in the UFC and is coming from back-to-back choice wins over Ross Pearson and Abel Trujillo. Haqparast (10-2) is 2-1 in the UFC and won”Battle of the Night” for his decision win over Thibault Gouti. I think Makdessi is a superb challenge for Haqparast at this stage of his profession, but given that 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 combat at UFC Fight Night 148. Tom Taylor of all BJPenn.com broke the information. Moffett (14-3) defeated Chas Skelly via controversial technical submission 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 2 Lightweights Ross Pearson and Desmond Green will meet at UFC on ESPN two, which takes place March 30 in 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 the very least a struggle Pearson could be competitive in, but I still have to prefer Green.
Sheymon Moraes vs. Sodiq Yusuff, UFC on ESPN two As well, an interesting featherweight bout between Sheymon Moraes and Sodiq Yusuff was added to UFC on ESPN 2. Rodney James had the information. Moraes (11-2) is currently 2-1 in the UFC and is coming from an excellent win over Julio Arce. Yusuff (8-1) pumped out Suman Mokhtarian in his UFC debut. Moraes is a very good fighter with more expertise, but it is hard to bet against the superb prospect Yusuff at this point, and that I expect him to be favored.
