A women’s flyweight bout between Luana Carolina and Priscila Cachoeira is set for UFC 237, taking place May 11 at Jeunesse Arena at 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 last summer. Cachoeira (8-2) has lost both of her UFC bouts to Valentina Shevchenko and Molly McCann. Now, bettors will probably be seeking to fade Cachoeira because of all the harm she has been taking in her struggles, and I’d expect Carolina to be the favorite here despite having no expertise 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 in the UFC and is coming off of consecutive decision losses to Alejandro Perez and John Dodson. He typically only fights after a year today, and hasn’t 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 into his UFC debut, though he hasn’t fought anyone of notice. Something interesting to keep in mind is that we has won two fights via the rarely-seen gogoplata entry. Still, I anticipate most bettors to look 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 place for UFC Fight Night 154, taking place 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 off of a decision win over Tom Lawlor in Golden Boy MMA 1 and was regarded as a top prospect in 205lbs, though he will be falling down in weight for this battle. 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 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 above Cachoeira. Lipski (11-4) was a champion in KSW and had a very 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 more in her wheelhouse, and I expect her to get her hand raised.
