A women’s flyweight bout between Luana Carolina and Priscila Cachoeira is place for UFC 237, occurring May 11 in Jeunesse Arena at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Cachoeira is filling in on short notice for the wounded Yanan Wu. The news was broken by combate. Carolina (5-1) is riding a five-fight win streak since losing her MMA debut, including a victory on the Brazilian Contender Series past summer. Cachoeira (8-2) has lost both of her UFC bouts to Valentina Shevchenko and Molly McCann. Now, bettors will be seeking to fade Cachoeira because of all the harm she has been shooting in her fights, and I would expect Carolina to be the preferred here despite having no expertise within the Octagon.
Eddie Wineland vs. Grigory Popov, UFC 238
An exciting bantamweight bout between Eddie Wineland and Grigory Popov has been added to UFC 238, taking place June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The Fight Nation broke news. Wineland (23-13-1) is 5-7 total in the UFC and is coming off of sequential decision declines to Alejandro Perez and John Dodson. He generally just fights after a year today, and has not won a fight since a TKO win over Takeya Mizugaki at 2016. Popov (13-1) is riding a nine-fight win streak on the Asian regional arena right into his UFC debut, though he has not fought anyone of notice. Something interesting to keep in mind is that we has won two conflicts via the rarely-seen gogoplata submission. However, I expect most bettors to seem to evaporate Wineland here, and Popov will probably be favored despite his lack of UFC experience.
Markus Perez vs. Deron Winn, UFC Fight Night 154
A fascinating middleweight bout between Markus Perez and Deron Winn is set for UFC Fight Night 154, occurring June 22 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Combate broke the news. Perez (11-2) is 2-2 at the UFC and is coming from a submission win over Anthony Hernandez. Winn (5-0) is coming from a determination win over Tom Lawlor in Golden Boy MMA 1 and has been regarded as a top prospect in 205lbs, however he will be falling down in weight for this battle. Although Perez has looked great in his victories, he is a bit too inconsistent for my liking and as a leading prospect I expect Winn are the favored.
Molly McCann vs. Ariane Lipski, UFC Fight Night 154
Additionally added to UFC Fight Night 154 is a women’s flyweight bout between Molly McCann and Ariane Lipski. ESPN had the news. McCann (8-2) is currently 1-1 in the UFC and is coming from a decision win over the above Cachoeira. Lipski (11-4) was a champion in KSW and had a long win streak before coming in the UFC, but it was snapped by a decision loss to Joanne Calderwood. The Calderwood fight proved to be a challenging style matchup for Lipski, but this fight against McCann needs to be in her wheelhouse, and I expect her to receive her hands raised.
