UFC matchmakers Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard are really active less than fourteen days into 2019. The UFC continued its recent series of fight reveals over the weekend, and also the new spells are recorded below along with my 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 combat Glover Teixeira in UFC on ESPN+ 1, taking place this Saturday in Barclays Center at Brooklyn, New York. Teixeira (27-7) is 10-5 at the UFC and most recently dropped a choice to Corey Anderson. Roberson (7-1) is 2-1 in the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Jack Marshman. This is a fairly intriguing matchup considering Teixeira’s experience and Roberson as a total wildcard at light heavyweight. The oddsmakers started 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 struggle against Cory Sandhagen at UFC on ESPN+ 1, and newcomer Mario Bautista has agreed to step up on short notice. Sandhagen (9-1) is currently 2-0 at the UFC. Bautista (6-0) is an undefeated potential out of the MMA Laboratory. Bautista is intriguing as a prospect, but Sandhagen opened as a -475 favorite with the comeback on Bautista at +325. Chance Rencountre vs. Dwight Grant, UFC on ESPN+ 1 An accident to Randy Brown has left Chance Rencountre with short-notice replacement Dwight Grant because his opponent at 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 from a split decision loss to Zak Ottow. The oddsmakers opened Grant as a -195 favorite with all the comeback on Rencountre in +155. UPDATE: Grant is out of the struggle and has been replaced by Kyle Stewart. Alex Gorgees vs. Jalin Turner, UFC 234 Lightweights Alex Gorgees and Jalin Turner will fulfill at UFC 234, taking place February 10 in Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne, Australia. MMA Today broke the information. Gorgees (6-1) dropped a choice to Damir Ismagulov in his UFC debut, while Turner (7-4) was knocked out by Vincente Luque within his UFC debut. Flip a coin between two men who probably are not 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, heading take February 23 at The O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. ESPN broke the news. Dodson (20-10) is 10-5 in 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 , and given all of the hype behind himI expect him to become heavily favored. Daniel Teymur vs. Chris Fishgold, UFC Fight Night 145 Featherweights Daniel Teymur and Chris Fishgold are set to battle UFC Fight Night 145. Teymur (6-2) is 0-2 in the UFC while Fishgold (17-2-1) is 0-1 in the Octagon. Another coin reverse fight, though Teymur has the sexy last name going for him. Thomas Almeida vs. Marlon Vera, UFC 235 An exciting bantamweight clash between Thomas Almeida and Marlon is set for UFC 235, taking place 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 time many (such as msyself) believed he was a prospective winner, but he has missing three of his past four fights and his chin hasn’t held up nicely. Vera (12-5-1) is 6-4 in the UFC and is coming from a submission win over Guido Cannetti. Now you need to prefer Vera to win this fight.
