A couple new bouts have been reserved for upcoming UFC Fight Night cards. Below are the bouts, along with my initial ideas on them.
UFC Fight Night 152 vs. Charles Jourdain, desmond Green Desmond Green has gotten his wish. The lightweight will compete in his hometown of Rochester, New York when he meets newcomer Charles Jourdain at UFC Fight Night 152, occurring May 18 at Blue Cross Arena. The information broke.
Green (22-8) is only 3-3 overall from the UFC but is coming from possibly the biggest win of his career, a first-round TKO win over Ross Pearson which delivered the British veteran packaging into retirement. Green stated he wished to struggle in Rochester so awful that he would struggle for free, and he’ll get his desire, only he will get paid when he takes on Jourdain, who is making his UFC debut. Jourdain (9-1) has been the lightweight champion from the TKO promotion in Quebec and is coming from four straight finishes. Just 23 years old,”Air” Jourdain is one of the top prospects at 155lbs and this is a great signing for the UFC.
Having said that, Jourdain will be facing a difficult competitor here in Green, who has proven he can grind his opponents out and also knock him out. I’d give the advantage to green according to his UFC experience, though Jourdain could be a live dog.
Devin Clark vs. Darko Stosic, UFC Fight Night 153
Following his light heavyweight matchup against Ivan Shtyrkov at last weekend’s UFC St. Petersburg event was scrapped last minute, Devin Clark was quickly rebooked and he’ll fight top prospect Darko Stosic in UFC Fight Night 153, taking place June 1 in Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. Clark himself broke the news through Instagram.
Clark (9-3) is 3-3 in the UFC and is coming off of a TKO loss to Aleksandar Rakic. Overall he has been a disappointment in the UFC and it seems like the matchmakers are down . Stosic (13-3) is among the top prospects in 205lbs and picked up a barbarous TKO win over Jeremy Kimball in his UFC debut to up his win streak to nine consecutive fights.
It sure looks like the UFC is utilizing Clark as a gatekeeper at this stage of his profession, and Stosic ought to be quite a hefty favorite to get the win in this struggle.
Kevin Holland vs. Alessio Di Chirico, UFC Fight Night 154
Middleweights Kevin Holland and Alessio Di Chirico are set to battle at UFC Fight Night 154, which takes place June 22 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Sherdog broke the news.
Holland (14-4) is currently 1-2 in the UFC after being signed following a successful stint on the Contender Series. After dropping a decision to Thiago Santos in his UFC debut, he has picked up back-to-back wins over Gerald Meerschaert and John Phillips. Di Chirico (12-2) is 3-2 in the UFC and is coming from back-to-back wins over Oluwale Bamgbose and Julian Marquez.
This ought to be a really competitive struggle, and while I do expect Holland to be preferred, Di Chirico is a good fighter and should not be counted from this one.
