The UFC is returning to”The City of Brotherly Love” along with a couple of fights have been announced for the event. Those fights, plus a few other newly-revealed UFC bouts in today’s MMA odds and ends.
Polyana Viana vs. Hannah Cifer, UFC 235
Strawweights Polyana Viana and Hannah Cifers will meet at UFC 235, taking place 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 recently in the news after quitting an attempted robbery. Cifers (8-3) is 0-1 so far in the UFC but put up a spirited effort against Maycee Barber. Depending on the hype, I would anticipate Viana to be favored here, but 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, occurring March 9 in Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Boetsch (21-12) is currently 13-11 in the UFC all-time and is coming off of a entry loss to Antonio Carlos Junior. Akhmedov (17-4-1) is 5-3-1 from the UFC and many lately fought to a draw against Marvin Vettori. This looks like a fairly competitive fight but I’m expecting most bettors are going to want to fade Boetsch here since they always appear to, leading to Akhmedov being the favored.
Anthony Rocco Martin vs. Sergio Moraes, UFC Fight Night 146
A welterweight bout between Anthony Rocco Martin and Sergio Moraes can also be 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 in the UFC and is among the very underrated welterweights from the division. But he’s also getting up there in age, and at some point he’s going to slow down. This should be a fantastic 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 with UFC on ESPN 2. The first fight announced is a women’s strawweight bout between contenders Michelle Waterson and Karolina Kowalkiewicz, which Brett Okamoto revealed. Waterson (16-6) is 4-2 at the UFC and lately defeated Felice Herrig by choice. Kowalkiewicz (12-3) is 5-3 overall from the UFC but has been brutally knocked out by Jessica Andrade in her final outing. Tough fight to call here, but given how vicious Kowalkiewiz was pumped out in her final fight I believe bettors will look to fade her in this place.
Alexa Grasso vs. Marina Rodriguez, UFC on ESPN 2 Additionally aded to UFC on ESPN two is a women’s strawweight bout between Alexa Grasso and Marina Rodriguez. Grasso (10-2) is only 2-2 in the UFC and was filed by Tatiana Suarez in her final outing. Rodriguez (10-0-1) fought to a draw with Randa Markos within her UFC debut. While I do believe Grasso will be the preferred here because she is more of a commodity that is known, I am going to be taking a long look at Rodriguez. I just feel like Grasso is overrated and we might be able to find a great line on Rodriguez here.
