A women’s flyweight bout between Luana Carolina and Priscila Cachoeira is place for UFC 237, occurring May 11 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Cachoeira is filling in on short notice for the wounded Yanan Wu. The news broke. Carolina (5-1) is riding a five-fight win streak since dropping her MMA debut, including a success 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 damage she has been shooting in her fights, and I would expect Carolina to be the favorite here despite having no expertise 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 Country broke the news. Wineland (23-13-1) is 5-7 overall from the UFC and is coming from sequential decision declines to Alejandro Perez and John Dodson. He generally just fights after a year now, and has not won a fight since a TKO win over Takeya Mizugaki in 2016. Popov (13-1) is riding a nine-fight win series on the Asian regional arena into his UFC debut, although he hasn’t fought anyone of note. Something interesting to remember is that we’ve won two fights via the rarely-seen gogoplata submission. Still, I anticipate most bettors to look to fade Wineland here, and Popov will probably be favored regardless of 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 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Combate broke the news. Perez (11-2) is 2-2 in the UFC and is coming off of a submission win over Anthony Hernandez. Winn (5-0) is coming from a determination win over Tom Lawlor in Golden Boy MMA 1 and has been considered a top prospect in 205lbs, however he’ll be dropping down in weight for this battle. Though Perez has looked great in his victories, he’s a bit too inconsistent for my liking and as a top prospect I expect Winn to be 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 from a decision win over the above Cachoeira. Lipski (11-4) was a champion in KSW and had a lengthy win streak before arriving in the UFC, but it had been snapped by a decision loss to Joanne Calderwood. The Calderwood fight proved to be a challenging style matchup to get Lipski, yet this fight against McCann needs to be more in her wheelhouse, and I expect her to receive her hands raised.
