The Octagon is headed back for UFC 236 to Atlanta, Georgia. The card takes place April 13 at State Farm Arena, and some of the newest 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 all ABC broke the information. Jouban (16-6) is 7-4 in the UFC and many recently defeated Ben Saunders via KO at a 2018″Fight 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 well with a TKO win over Carlo Pedersoli Jr. in his final fight. Jouban has more expertise and on newspaper would be the better boxer, but he’s also 37 and hasn’t fought in over a year. This may be the ideal time to fade him and proceed with Grant, who I am hoping to be the underdog in this one.
Jalin Turner vs. Matt Frevola, UFC 236
A lightweight matchup involving Jalin Turner and Matt Frevola is also place for UFC 236. Turner (8-4) was pumped 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 prospect at 155lbs. Frevola (6-1-1) was pumped out by Marco Polo Reyes in his UFC debut and then fought to a exciting draw contrary Lando Vannata his out time. Frevola is a whole lot better of a fighter than most give him credit for, but given how impressive Turner appeared in his UFC sophomore attempt, you need to go with him to win this fight as a big favorite.
UFC 236 vs. Zelim Imadaev, max Griffin Taking place at UFC 236 is a welterweight bout between Max Griffin and Zelim Imadaev. ESPN broke the information. Griffin (14-6) has a mediocre record of 2-4 in the Octagon, but believed he should have got a split decision nod over Thiago Alves in his last fight. His album is deceiving as he’s fought some really hard competition in his losses, including former interim champ Colby Covington. Imadaev (8-0) has knocked out each his opponents to date on the Russian regional circuit but none of them were notable fighters. Griffin is the biggest battle of Imadaev’s career up to now, and while Griffin is a solid fighter, Imadaev is a tremendous prospect with a glistening record and will probably 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 in UFC 236. The information broke. Millender (17-4) saw a nine-fight win streak snapped with his entry loss to dos Santos but before this had won his first three fights from the Octagon. Muhammad (14-3) is 5-3 at the UFC and most recently saw his four-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Geoff Neal. Fantastic battle here between two lasting fighters willing to stand and exchange for the lovers, but despite Millender’s recent quick loss I would still prefer him to win this bout as he’s the dynamic fighter and more powerful striker.
