A number of quality spells are shown for upcoming UFC cards, and my thoughts on them are under.
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, taking place June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Combate broke the information. Maia (26-9) is 20-9 in the UFC and is coming from 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 may very well win this fight, but according to Maia’s degree of experience and the quality of his resistance over the years 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 at the UFC and is coming from a miracle submission win over Kennedy Nzechukwu. Menifield (8-0) is undefeated as an expert with all his wins coming from stoppage, such as a brutal KO over Vinicius Moreira in his UFC debut. You may never completely count Craig out as he’s proven he can come back and win in the struggle by submission, but on newspaper Menifield is the better athlete and he must be a huge favorite here.
Marlon Vera vs. Sean O’Malley, UFC 239
An exciting bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and Sean O’Malley is scheduled for UFC 239, taking place June 6 at 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 due to some USADA suspension. O’Malley is a huge young prospect but Vera is fighting at a high level right now 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 venue in Sacramento, California. Combate broke the information. Ferreira (13-7) is 9-5 in the UFC and is coming off of an upset decision reduction to Ian Heinisch. Vettori (12-4-1) hasn’t fought in over a year because of a USADA suspension and also in his final struggle dropped a split decision to Israel Adesanya. This is a close fight but given how close Vettori was to beating Adesanya, in spite of the long layoff I would prefer 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 will also fulfill at UFC Fight Night 155. Dariush (16-4-1) is 10-4-1 from the UFC and is coming off of back-to-back wins over Drew Dober and Thiago Moises. Klose (10-1-1) is currently 4-1 at the UFC and is coming from successive wins over Bobby Green and Lando Vannata. This really is a quality matchup but I’d actually favor Klose as stylistically it’s a good battle for him because he ought to be able to keep it standing and acquire the striking battle.
