UFC matchmakers Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard have been very active less than two weeks into 2019. The UFC continued its recent run of fight reveals over the weekend, and also the brand new bouts are listed below along with my very first thoughts on them.
Glover Teixeira vs. Karl Roberson, UFC on ESPN+ 1 (UFC FN 144)
Because of an injury to Ion Cutelaba, Karl Roberson has agreed to move up a weight class on short notice to fight Glover Teixeira at UFC on ESPN+ 1, taking place this Saturday in Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Teixeira (27-7) is 10-5 at the UFC and many recently dropped a decision to Corey Anderson. Roberson (7-1) is 2-1 at the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Jack Marshman. This is a pretty intriguing matchup contemplating Teixeira’s experience and Roberson as a total wildcard at light heavyweight. The oddsmakers opened Roberson as a -115 favorite and Teixeira as a -105 underdog.
Cory Sandhagen vs. Mario Bautista, UFC on ESPN+ 1
An accident to John Lineker knocked him out of his fight against Cory Sandhagen at UFC on ESPN+ 1, and newcomer Mario Bautista has agreed to step on short notice. Sandhagen (9-1) is 2-0 at the UFC. Bautista (6-0) is a undefeated prospect out of the MMA Lab. Bautista is intriguing as a potential, but Sandhagen opened as a -475 favored with all the comeback on Bautista in +325.
Chance Rencountre vs. Dwight Grant, UFC on ESPN+ 1
An accident to Randy Brown has left Chance Rencountre using short-notice replacement Dwight Grant as his opponent in a welterweight contest at UFC on ESPN+ 1. Rencountre (12-3) fell a choice to Belal Muhammad in his UFC debut while Grant (8-2) is 1-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a split decision loss to Zak Ottow. The oddsmakers opened Grant as a -195 favorite with the comeback on Rencountre at +155. UPDATE: Grant is out of the fight and has been substituted by Kyle Stewart.
Alex Gorgees vs. Jalin Turner, UFC 234
Lightweights Alex Gorgees and Jalin Turner will fulfill UFC 234, occurring February 10 in Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. MMA Today broke the information. Gorgees (6-1) fell a decision to Damir Ismagulov in his UFC debut, while Turner (7-4) was knocked out by Vincente Luque in his UFC debut. Flip a coin between two guys who probably aren’t UFC-caliber fighters.
John Dodson vs. Petr Yan, UFC Fight Night 145
Bantmaweight conteners John Dodson and Petr Yan are set to go to war at UFC Fight Night 145, going take February 23 in The O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. ESPN broke the news. Dodson (20-10) is 10-5 at the UFC and is coming from a decision loss to Jimmie Rivera. Yan (11-1) is 3-0 at the UFC and only defeated Douglas Silva de Andrade via TKO. Give me Yan in this one, and given all of the hype behind him, I expect him to become heavily preferred.
Daniel Teymur vs. Chris Fishgold, UFC Fight Night 145
Featherweights Daniel Teymur and Chris Fishgold are set to clash at UFC Fight Night 145. Teymur (6-2) is 0-2 at the UFC while Fishgold (17-2-1) is 0-1 at the Octagon. Another coin reverse fight, though Teymur gets the sexy last name going for him.
Thomas Almeida vs. Marlon Vera, UFC 235
An intriguing bantamweight clash between Thomas Almeida and Marlon is place for UFC 235, occurring March 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. FloCombat broke the information. Almeida (21-3) is currently 5-3 at the UFC. At one point in time many (including msyself) thought he was a prospective winner, but he’s missing three of his past four fights along with his chin has not held up well. Vera (12-5-1) is 6-4 at the UFC and is coming from a submission win over Guido Cannetti. At this point you need to prefer Vera to win this fight.
