Quite a few quality spells have been revealed for upcoming UFC cards, and my thoughts on them are below.
Demian Maia vs. Anthony Rocco Martin, UFC on ESPN 3
Standout welterweights Demian Maia and Anthony Rocco Martin will fight at UFC on ESPN 3, occurring June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Combate broke the news. Maia (26-9) is 20-9 from the UFC and is coming off of a submission win over Lyman Good. Martin (16-4) is 8-4 in the UFC and has won four of his fights since moving up to welterweight. Martin is a fantastic fighter and could very well win this battle, but based on Maia’s degree of knowledge and the quality of his opposition over the years that he deserves to be the betting favorite here.
Paul Craig vs. Alonzo Menifield, UFC on ESPN 3
An intriguing light heavyweight bout between Paul Craig and Alonzo Menifield meet at UFC on ESPN 3. Craig (11-3) is 3-3 in the UFC and is coming off of a miracle submission win over Kennedy Nzechukwu. Menifield (8-0) is undefeated as a pro with all of his wins coming by stoppage, such as a brutal KO over Vinicius Moreira in his UFC debut. You may never completely count Craig outside as he’s proven he can return and win late in the struggle by entry, but on paper Menifield is the better athlete and he must be a massive favorite here.
Marlon Vera vs. Sean O’Malley, UFC 239
An intriguing bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and Sean O’Malley is scheduled for UFC 239, taking place June 6 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. ESPN’s Ariel Helwani broke the news. Vera (13-5-1) is 7-4 at the UFC and is coming off of three straight finishes over Frankie Saenz, Guido Cannetti and Wuliji Buren. O’Malley (10-0) is 2-0 at the UFC but has not competed in over a year because of a USADA suspension. O’Malley is a tremendous young potential but Vera is battling at a high level at the moment and deserves to be the favorite here.
Cezar Ferreira vs. Martin Vettori, UFC Fight Night 155
Middleweights Cezar Ferreira and Marvin Vettori are set to fight at UFC Fight Night 155, occurring July 13 at an unannounced place in Sacramento, California. Combate broke the information. Ferreira (13-7) is 9-5 from the UFC and is coming off of an upset decision loss to Ian Heinisch. Vettori (12-4-1) hasn’t fought in over a year because of some USADA suspension and also in his final struggle dropped a split decision to Israel Adesanya. That is a close fight but given how close Vettori was to beating Adesanya, even with the long layoff I’d favor him slightly to get the win over the aging and chinny Ferreira.
Beneil Dariush vs. Drakkar Klose, UFC on ESPN 3
Lightweights Beneil Dariush and Drakkar Klose may also fulfill at UFC Fight Night 155. Dariush (16-4-1) is 10-4-1 in the UFC and is coming from back-to-back wins over Drew Dober and Thiago Moises. Klose (10-1-1) is 4-1 in the UFC and is coming off of successive wins over Bobby Green and Lando Vannata. This really is an excellent matchup but I’d really favor Klose as stylistically it’s a good battle for him because he ought to have the ability to keep it standing and also win the battle that is spectacular.
