The UFC is coming to”The City of Brotherly Love” and a couple of fights have been announced for the event. Those fights, and a few other newly-revealed UFC bouts in the MMA odds and ends.
Polyana Viana vs. Hannah Cifer, UFC 235
Strawweights Polyana Viana and Hannah Cifers will fulfill at UFC 235, occurring March 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. ESPN broke the news. Viana (10-2) is 1-1 so far in the UFC and was lately in the information after stopping an attempted robbery. Cifers (8-3) is 0-1 so far in the UFC but put up a spirited attempt against Maycee Barber. Depending on the hype, I’d expect Viana to be favored here, however I wouldn’t sleep on Cifers.
Tim Boetsch vs. Omari Akhmedov, UFC Fight Night 146
A middleweight bout between Tim Boetsch and Omari Akhmedov is set for UFC Fight Night 146, taking place March 9 at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Boetsch (21-12) is currently 13-11 in the UFC all time and is coming off of a submission loss to Antonio Carlos Junior. Akhmedov (17-4-1) is 5-3-1 in the UFC and most recently battled to a draw against Marvin Vettori. This looks like a fairly competitive fight but I’m expecting most bettors will want to fade Boetsch here as they always seem to, resulting in Akhmedov being the favorite.
Anthony Rocco Martin vs. Sergio Moraes, UFC Fight Night 146
A welterweight bout between Anthony Rocco Martin and Sergio Moraes is also place for UFC Fight Night 146. Martin (15-4) is 3-0 since moving up to welterweight and finished Jake Matthews in his final outing. Moraes (14-3-1) is 8-2-1 complete from the UFC and is among the very underrated welterweights in the branch. But he’s also getting up there in age, and at any stage he’s likely to slow down. This ought to be a good battle but I lean towards the younger and vastly-improved Martin becoming his hand raised.
Michelle Waterson vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz, UFC on ESPN two The UFC will return to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on March 30 at Wells Farco Center using UFC on ESPN 2. The first fight announced is that a women’s strawweight bout between contenders Michelle Waterson and Karolina Kowalkiewicz, which Brett Okamoto shown. Waterson (16-6) is 4-2 in the UFC and lately defeated Felice Herrig by decision. Kowalkiewicz (12-3) is 5-3 overall from the UFC but has been pumped out by Jessica Andrade in her final outing. Tough fight to call here, but given how vicious Kowalkiewiz was knocked out in her final fight I think bettors will seem to fade her in this place.
Alexa Grasso vs. Marina Rodriguez, UFC on ESPN 2 Additionally aded to UFC on ESPN 2 is a women’s strawweight bout between Alexa Grasso and Marina Rodriguez. Grasso (10-2) is only 2-2 in the UFC and was submitted by Tatiana Suarez in her last outing. Rodriguez (10-0-1) fought to a draw with Randa Markos in her UFC debut. While I think Grasso is going to be the preferred here because she is more of a known commodity, I will be taking a long look at Rodriguez. I just feel like Grasso is overrated and we might have the ability to find a good line on Rodriguez here.
