UFC matchmakers Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard have been really active less than fourteen days into 2019. The UFC continued its recent run of struggle reveals over the weekend, and also the new spells are recorded below along with my very first ideas on them. Glover Teixeira vs. Karl Roberson, UFC on ESPN+ 1 (UFC FN 144) Due to 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 at Barclays Center at Brooklyn, New York. Teixeira (27-7) is 10-5 at the UFC and most recently dropped a decision 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 pretty intriguing matchup contemplating Teixeira’s experience and Roberson as a whole wildcard at light heavyweight. The oddsmakers opened Roberson as a -115 favored and Teixeira as a -105 underdog. Cory Sandhagen vs. Mario Bautista, UFC on ESPN+ 1 An accident to John Lineker knocked him from his struggle against Cory Sandhagen at UFC on ESPN+ 1, and novice Mario Bautista has agreed to step on short notice. Sandhagen (9-1) is currently 2-0 at the UFC. Bautista (6-0) is a undefeated prospect out of the MMA Laboratory. Bautista is interesting as a potential, but Sandhagen started as a -475 favored with the comeback on Bautista in +325. Chance Rencountre vs. Dwight Grant, UFC on ESPN+ 1 An injury to Randy Brown has left Chance Rencountre using short-notice replacement Dwight Grant as his competitor in 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 at the UFC and is coming from a split decision loss to Zak Ottow. The oddsmakers started Grant as a -195 favored with the comeback on Rencountre in +155. UPDATE: Grant is out of the fight and has been substituted by Kyle Stewart. Alex Gorgees vs. Jalin Turner, UFC 234 Lightweights Alex Gorgees and Jalin Turner will meet at UFC 234, occurring February 10 in Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. MMA Today broke the information. Gorgees (6-1) dropped a decision to Damir Ismagulov in his UFC debut, while Turner (7-4) was knocked out by Vincente Luque in his UFC debut. Flip a coin here between two guys who probably aren’t 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 in UFC Fight Night 145, heading take February 23 at The O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. ESPN broke the information. Dodson (20-10) is 10-5 at the UFC and is coming off of a decision loss to Jimmie Rivera. Yan (11-1) is 3-0 in 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 be greatly favored. Daniel Teymur vs. Chris Fishgold, UFC Fight Night 145 Featherweights Daniel Teymur and Chris Fishgold are set to clash at 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 flip fight, though Teymur gets the hot last name going for him. Thomas Almeida vs. Marlon Vera, UFC 235 An exciting bantamweight battle 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 future winner, but he has lost three of his past four fights and his chin hasn’t held up nicely. Vera (12-5-1) is 6-4 at the UFC and is coming from a submission win over Guido Cannetti. Now you have to favor Vera to win this fight.
