The Octagon is led back for UFC 236 to Atlanta, Georgia. The card takes place April 13 at State Farm Arena, and a number of the latest bouts added to the card are listed below.
Alan Jouban vs. Dwight Grant, UFC 236
Welterweights Alan Jouban and Dwight Grant will meet UFC 236. Zack Klein of ABC broke the news. Jouban (16-6) is 7-4 in the UFC and most recently defeated Ben Saunders via KO in a 2018″Battle of the Year” candidate. Grant (9-2) revealed some Octagon jitters in his UFC debut when he dropped a split decision to Zak Ottow, but he bounced back nicely with a TKO win over Carlo Pedersoli Jr. in his last struggle. Jouban has more expertise and on newspaper would be the better boxer, but he is also 37 and has not fought in over a year. This might be the right time to fade him and go with Grant, who I am expecting to be the underdog in this one.
Jalin Turner vs. Matt Frevola, UFC 236
A lightweight matchup between Jalin Turner and Matt Frevola can also be place for UFC 236. Turner (8-4) was brutally knocked out by Vicente Luque in his UFC debut but bounced back well with a TKO win over Callan Potter his out time. Only 23, he seems like a very solid potential at 155lbs. Frevola (6-1-1) was pumped out by Marco Polo Reyes in his UFC debut and subsequently fought to a exciting draw contrary Lando Vannata his last time out. Frevola is a lot better of a fighter than many give him credit for, but given how amazing Turner appeared in his UFC sophomore effort, you need to go together to acquire this fight as a major favorite.
Max Griffin vs. Zelim Imadaev, UFC 236 Taking place at UFC 236 is a welterweight bout between Max Griffin and Zelim Imadaev. ESPN broke the news. Griffin (14-6) has a fair record of 2-4 in the Octagon, but most believed he should have got a split decision nod over Thiago Alves in his last struggle. His album is deceiving as he’s fought some really tough competition in his losses, including former interim champ Colby Covington. Imadaev (8-0) has knocked out all his opponents to date about the Russian regional circuit but none of them were prominent fighters. Griffin is the biggest fight of Imadaev’s career up to now, and while Griffin is a good fighter, Imadaev is a tremendous prospect with a glistening record and will likely be favored here.
Curtis Millender vs. Belal Muhammad, UFC 236
Only a week after being filed by Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, Curtis Millender has signed a contract to fight fellow welterweight Belal Muhammad at UFC 236. Farah Hannoun broke the information. Millender (17-4) watched a nine-fight win streak snapped by his entry loss to dos Santos but before that had won his first three fights in the Octagon. Muhammad (14-3) is 5-3 in the UFC and many recently saw his four-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Geoff Neal. Fantastic fight here between two durable fighters eager to stand and trade for the fans, however despite Millender’s recent quick loss I’d still prefer him to win this bout as he is the more dynamic fighter and more powerful striker.
