Among the best fighters in MMA history is set to return to the Octagon after this spring. Additionally, the UFC’s return to Ottawa receives a few new matchups in the current MMA odds and ends.
BJ Penn vs. Clay Guida, UFC 237
A lightweight bout between BJ Penn and Clay Guida is famous for UFC 237, that can be set for May 11 at Jeunesse Arena at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. MMAFighting.com broke the news. Penn (16-13-2) is currently 12-12-1 all-time from the Octagon and will be the former UFC welterweight and lightweight winner. However, he’s fallen on hard times as of late. Now age 40, he was only submitted by Ryan Hall through heel hook and is now riding a six-fight win series. He refuses to hang up the glasses, presuming he could hang in the UFC, but it is clear his best days are years . Guida (34-18) is 14-2 all time in the UFC and many recently lost by entry to Charles Oliveira. However, he beat Joe Lauzon and Erik Koch in back-to-back fights before that. Now, you just can not select Penn to beat anybody on the UFC roster, also I’d tag Guida as a big favorite to win this fight despite his own struggles. .
Nordine Taleb vs. Siyar Bahadurzada, UFC Fight Night 150
An intriguing welterweight bout between Nordine Taleb and Siyar Bahadurzada will happen at UFC Fight Night 150, set for May 4 in Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Taleb (14-6) is 6-4 in the UFC and is coming from successive stoppage losses to Sean Strickland and Claudio Silva. Bahadurzada (24-7-1) is 3-3 in the UFC and many recently dropped a decision to Curtis Millender. Both guys are on the downsides of their careers, but I see Bahadurzada as the complete fighter and would prefer him to acquire this one.
Alexey Oleynik vs. Walt Harris, UFC Fight Night 150
Heavyweights Alexey Oleynik and Walt Harris are set to battle UFC Fight Night 150. Ariel Helwani broke the news. Oleynik (57-11, 1 NC) is 6-2 in the UFC and is coming off of a submission win over Mark Hunt. Though he is 41, he’s still battling at an elite level. Harris (12-7) is 5-6 in the UFC and just picked up the biggest win of his career, a split decision nod over Andrei Arlovski. Though Oleynik is getting up there in age, he has looked great as of late and has arguably the best entry game in the heavyweight division, span. Although Harris can cause Oleynik problems if this struggle stays standing, Oleynik’s advantage on the floor should make him a big betting popular in this bout.
Kyle Nelson vs. Matt Sayles, UFC Fight Night 150
Featherweights Kyle Nelson and Matt Sayles will even meet at UFC Fight Night 150. Nelson (12-2) lost to Carlos Diego Ferreira on short note in his UFC debut, but that struggle was up a weight class and he was on a six-fight win streak on the regional arena before that. Sayles (7-2) chose to Sheymon Moraes in his UFC debut following a nice win on Dana White’s Contender Series made him a UFC deal. This resembles a entire coin-flip and that I expect the line to be near a Select’em.
