The Octagon heads north of the border for UFC Fight Night 150, taking place May 4 at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
There have been a number of upgrades to the card, and the new bouts are listed below.
Sarah Moras vs. Macy Chiasson, UFC Fight Night 150
Women’s bantamweights Sarah Moras and Macy Chiasson are place to get a featured bout at UFC Fight Night 150. Moras (5-4) is 2-3 from the UFC and is coming from back-to-back decision loss to Talita Bernardo and Lucie Pudilova. The prior TUF contestant has not won a fight since a submission win over Ashlee Evans-Smith in late 2017. Chiasson (4-0) won The Ultimate Fighter using a stoppage win over Pannie Kianzad and continued to build up her hype train with a brutal knockout over Gina Mazany her final time out. The UFC is clearly quite high on Chiasson and she is making a quick return to the Octagon having just fought at UFC 235 last month. There’s no doubt that the UFC is serving up Moras to get finished by Chiasson, who’s among the top female prospects in the game right now. Although Moras has pulled off the upset before, this resembles a terrible matchup because of her on paper, and Chiasson ought to be a huge favorite heading into the fight.
Walt Harris vs. Sergey Spivak, UFC Fight Night 150
Following Aleksei Oleinik was pulled to combat Alistair Overeem at UFC Fight Night 149, today Walt Harris takes on UFC newcomer Sergey Spivak in UFC Fight Night 150. Harris (11-7, 1 NC) is 4-6, 1 NC in the UFC and is coming from a No Contest against Andrei Arlovski at UFC 232 after testing positive for a banned substance. Harris has been a massive downturn in the UFC and it is amazing he continues to get so many chances despite his bad record and his recent drug test failure. Spivak (9-0) has finished all his pro fights including stoppage wins noted journeyman Travis Fulton and Tony Lopez on the regional arena. While Harris may have more UFC experience, this could be a fantastic place to fade him and have a shot at the unbeaten Spivak, that seems like a really good prospect.
Mitch Gagnon vs. Cole Smith, UFC Fight Night 150
Also place for UFC Fight Night 150 is a bantamweight bout between Mitch Gagnon and Cole Smith, who’s filling in on short notice for the injured Brian Kelleher. Gagnon (12-4) is 4-3 in the UFC but is riding a two-fight losing skid and hasn’t won a fight since a 2014 submission win over Roman Salazar. It is amazing how Gagnon’s profession has taken such a nosedive, because at one time that he seemed like he could be a prospective title competitor from the bantamweight division, but of course those days are long behind him today. Smith (6-0) has won six of his pro fights up to now about the Canadian regional circuit with five of those coming from stoppage. Gagnon will most likely be the preferred here, but he’s prime fade cloth and Smith may be a trendy dog pick for bettors who are feeling blessed.
