UFC FT. LAUDERDALE CARD UPDATES INCLUDING ALEX OLIVEIRA VS. MIKE PERRY

By ноември 21, 2019януари 1st, 2020Uncategorized

UFC Ft. Lauderdale is set to take place April 27 at BB&T Center, and the major event was anticipated to be a five-round middleweight bout between Yoel Romero and Ronaldo“Jacare“ Souza. Unfortunately, Romero has pulled out with trauma and the UFC is trying to find a new competitor for Souza. A few other bouts on the card also have seen changes occur, and I will give my initial thoughts on them under.
Alex Oliveira vs. Mike Perry, UFC on ESPN 3
An intriguing welterweight bout between Alex Oliveira and Mike Perry will happen at UFC on ESPN 3. ESPN first broke the news that Perry is filling in on short notice for its injured Li Jingliang.
Oliveira (19-6-1, 2 NC) is currently 9-4, 1 NC at the UFC and is coming from a barbarous entry loss to Gunnar Nelson in his last struggle. He’s constantly in exciting struggles win-or-lose, but is lacking that signature victory and has not yet demonstrated he can take another step into contender status. Perry (12-4) includes a 5-4 record in the UFC but was submitted by Donald Cerrone in his final fight. Most of us know he’s knockout power, but he has not shown much else besides his punching power. This one could go either way as both men are offensively talented however defensively flawed. I’d have to prefer Oliveira as he is better on the ground, but Perry is certainly reside in this battle with his KO power.
Carla Esparza vs. Virna Jandiroba, UFC on ESPN 3
Because of an accident to Livia Renata Souza, Carla Esparza will face Virna Jandiroba in a women’s strawweight bout. Combate broke the news. Esparza (13-6) is the former UFC women’s strawweight champion and has a 4-4 record overall from the Octagon, including a TKO loss to Tatiana Suarez in her final outing. Jandiroba (14-0) was the Invicta women’s strawweight champion after going 3-0 in the advertising. Esparza will likely be favored because of having more UFC experience, but the unbeaten Jandiroba is absolutely a live dog in this fight.
Ben Saunders vs. Takashi Sato, UFC on ESPN 3
Additionally added to UFC on ESPN 3 is a welterweight bout between Ben Saunders and Takashi Sato. Asian MMA broke the information. Saunders (22-11-2) is only 2-4 in his third stint at the UFC, and is coming off of back-to-back stoppage declines to Lyman Good and Sergio Moraes. He appears to be on rather the decline. Sato (14-2) is a Pancrase vet who won his last fight, but overall looks like a suspicious signing by the UFC. Given Saunders is from Florida, possibly the UFC thinks they’re giving him a winnable battle , but Sato may surprise and get the knockout win.
Gilbert Burns vs. Eric Wisely, UFC on ESPN 3
Lightweights Gilbert Burns and Eric Wisely are place to meet. Combate had the news. Burns (14-3) is 7-3 at the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Olivier Aubin-Mercier. Wisely (30-9-1) is making his return to the Octagon after going unbeaten over his last nine fights in the regional circuit. He had one previous stint at the UFC back in 2012, when he went 0-2. This is a weird fight, and the only thing I can think of is that no one desired to combat Burns, that I anticipate to be a huge favorite to conquer Wisely.
Roosevelt Roberts vs. Thomas Gifford, UFC on ESPN 3
And lastly, lightweights Roosevelt Roberts and Thomas Gifford will meet at UFC on ESPN 3. Roberts (7-0) has completed all his pro fights including a submission win over Darrell Horcher in his UFC debut. Gifford (14-7, two NC) is making his UFC debut after going undefeated over his final five bouts in the regional circuit. Gifford appears to be a decent prospect but Roosevelt has proven he can win in the UFC and I expect him to be favored fairly heavily in this one.
