NEW UFC BOUTS BOOKED INCLUDING RETURN OF EDDIE WINELAND

14 Sep 2019

A women’s flyweight bout between Luana Carolina and Priscila Cachoeira is set for UFC 237, occurring May 11 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Cachoeira is filling in on short notice for its wounded Yanan Wu. Combate broke the news. 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. At this point, bettors will probably be looking to fade Cachoeira due to all the harm she has been shooting in her fights, and I’d expect Carolina to be the preferred here despite having no experience inside the Octagon.
Eddie Wineland vs. Grigory Popov, UFC 238
An intriguing 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 the news. Wineland (23-13-1) is 5-7 total from the UFC and is coming from sequential decision declines to Alejandro Perez and John Dodson. He typically only fights once a year today, and has not won a fight since a TKO win over Takeya Mizugaki in 2016. Popov (13-1) is riding a nine-fight win streak on the Asian regional scene into his UFC debut, though he hasn’t fought anyone of note. Something interesting to keep in mind is that we’ve won two conflicts via the rarely-seen gogoplata entry. However, I anticipate most bettors to seem to fade Wineland here, and Popov will most likely 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 place for UFC Fight Night 154, taking place June 22 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Combate broke the information. Perez (11-2) is 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 has been regarded as a top prospect at 205lbs, though he’ll be falling down in weight for this fight. Though Perez has looked great in his successes, he is a bit too inconsistent for my liking and as a leading prospect I anticipate 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 information. McCann (8-2) is currently 1-1 at the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over the aforementioned Cachoeira. Lipski (11-4) was a champion in KSW and had a very lengthy win streak before coming 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 for Lipski, yet this fight against McCann needs to be more in her wheelhouse, and I expect her to get her hands raised.
