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 its wounded 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 victory on the Brazilian Contender Series past summer. Cachoeira (8-2) has lost both of her UFC bouts to Valentina Shevchenko and Molly McCann. At this point, bettors will probably be looking to fade Cachoeira because of all the harm she has been taking in her fights, and I would expect Carolina to be the preferred here despite having no experience within the Octagon.
Eddie Wineland vs. Grigory Popov, UFC 238
An intriguing bantamweight bout between Eddie Wineland and Grigory Popov was 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 overall in the UFC and is coming off of consecutive decision losses to Alejandro Perez and John Dodson. He generally just fights once a year today, and hasn’t won a fight because a TKO win over Takeya Mizugaki in 2016. Popov (13-1) is riding a nine-fight win series on the Asian regional scene into his UFC debut, though he hasn’t fought anyone of notice. Something interesting to keep in mind is that we’ve won two conflicts via the rarely-seen gogoplata entry. Still, I anticipate most bettors to look to fade Wineland here, and Popov will probably be favored despite 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 set for UFC Fight Night 154, occurring June 22 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Combate broke the information. Perez (11-2) is currently 2-2 in the UFC and is coming from a submission win over Anthony Hernandez. Winn (5-0) is coming off of a decision win over Tom Lawlor in Golden Boy MMA 1 and was considered a top prospect in 205lbs, though he’ll be falling down in weight for this fight. Although Perez has looked really good in his successes, he’s a bit too inconsistent for my liking and as a top prospect I expect Winn are the favorite.
Molly McCann vs. Ariane Lipski, UFC Fight Night 154
Also 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 off of a decision win within the above Cachoeira. Lipski (11-4) was a champion in KSW and had a long win streak before arriving in the UFC, but it was snapped by a decision loss to Joanne Calderwood. The Calderwood fight was shown to be a challenging style matchup to get Lipski, but this fight against McCann should be in her wheelhouse, and I expect her to receive her hands raised.
