A women’s flyweight bout between Luana Carolina and Priscila Cachoeira is place for UFC 237, taking place May 11 at Jeunesse Arena at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Cachoeira is filling in on short notice for the injured Yanan Wu. The information was broken by combate. Carolina (5-1) is riding a five-fight win streak since losing her MMA introduction, including a success on the Brazilian Contender Series last summer. Cachoeira (8-2) has lost both of her UFC bouts to Valentina Shevchenko and Molly McCann. At this point, bettors will be looking to fade Cachoeira due to all the damage she’s been shooting in her struggles, and I’d expect Carolina to be the favorite 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 Country broke the 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 typically only fights once a year now, and has not won a fight because a TKO win over Takeya Mizugaki in 2016. Popov (13-1) is riding a nine-fight win streak on the Asian regional scene right into his UFC debut, although 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 fade Wineland here, and Popov will probably be favored regardless of his lack of UFC experience.
Markus Perez vs. Deron Winn, UFC Fight Night 154
An intriguing middleweight bout between Markus Perez and Deron Winn is place for UFC Fight Night 154, occurring June 22 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Combate broke the news. Perez (11-2) is currently 2-2 in the UFC and is coming off of a submission win over Anthony Hernandez. Winn (5-0) is coming from a decision win over Tom Lawlor in Golden Boy MMA 1 and has been considered a top prospect at 205lbs, however he’ll 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 top prospect I anticipate 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 1-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a decision win within the aforementioned Cachoeira. Lipski (11-4) was a winner in KSW and had a long win streak before arriving in the UFC, but it had been snapped by a decision loss to Joanne Calderwood. The Calderwood fight proved to be a difficult style matchup for Lipski, but this struggle against McCann needs to be more in her wheelhouse, and I expect her to get her hand raised.
