A number of new UFC bouts have been added to three forthcoming fight cards. Here are the bouts, together with my initial 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, taking place 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 loss to Jim Miller. Moret (13-4) was knocked out by Gilbert Burns in his UFC debut. Coin-flip battle here and I expect the line for a Select’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 news. Dawson (12-1) is eventually making his UFC debut after a USADA case kept him on the sidelines. Prior to his suspension, he had won on the Contender Series to find a UFC deal. Erosa (22-6) is 0-2 in the UFC and was pumped out by Devonte Smith in his final outing. This looks like a situation to fade Erosa in and accept Dawson for the triumph.
John Makdessi vs. Nasrat Haqparast, UFC Fght Night 148
An Enjoyable struggle 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 at the UFC and won”Battle of the Night” for his decision win over Thibault Gouti. I believe Makdessi is a superb challenge for Haqparast at this point of his profession, but since he is only 23 you have to favor Haqparast here.
Bobby Moffett vs. Bryce Mitchell, UFC Fight Night 148
Also, featherweights Bobby Moffett and Bryce Mitchell will combat at UFC Fight Night 148. Tom Taylor of BJPenn.com broke the news. Moffett (14-3) defeated Chas Skelly via contentious technical enhancement within his UFC debut. Mitchell (10-0) defeated Tyler Diamond in his own Octagon debut. This should be a competitive struggle, but my initial 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 dropped five of the last six fights overall. Green (21-8) is only 2-3 in the UFC himself. This is at least a fight Pearson could be aggressive in, however I have to favor Green.
Sheymon Moraes vs. Sodiq Yusuff, UFC on ESPN 2 As well, an interesting featherweight bout between Sheymon Moraes and Sodiq Yusuff was added to UFC on ESPN 2. Rodney James had the news. Moraes (11-2) is currently 2-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a great win over Julio Arce. Yusuff (8-1) knocked out Suman Mokhtarian in his UFC debut. Moraes is a really good fighter with more expertise, but it’s difficult to bet against the superb prospect Yusuff at this point, and I expect him to be preferred.
