The first couple bouts have been shown for the UFC’s upcoming cards in Rochester and Greensboro, and I will give my initial takes on those matchups below.
Aspen Ladd vs. Sijara Eubanks, UFC Fight Night 151
Moving up from the women’s flyweight division is Sijara Eubanks, and she will fight Aspen Ladd at UFC Fight Night 151, taking place May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York. MMAjunkie broke the information. Ladd (7-0) is undefeated in her career and is 2-0 at the UFC with a barbarous TKO win over Tonya Evinger in her last outing. Eubanks (4-2) is 2-0 in the UFC and beat Roxanne Modafferi by choice in her final struggle. This is really a rematch of the pair’s previous bout in Invicta, which Ladd won by choice. I’m expecting another aggressive struggle this moment around, but once more I would have to prefer Ladd to win the fight.
Trevin Giles vs. Zak Cummings, UFC Fight Night 151
Also added to UFC Fight Night 151 is a middleweight bout between Trevin Giles and Zak Cummings. Giles (11-0) is currently 2-0 in the UFC but hasn’t fought as a KO win over Antonio Braga Neto at December 2017. Cummings (22-6) is 7-3 in the UFC and is coming from a split decision win over Trevor Smith. Cummings is merely a gatekeeper at this point of his profession while Giles is a leading prospect in 185lbs, and he’ll likely be a huge favorite here regardless of his long layoff.
Mike Trizano vs. Grant Dawson, UFC Fight Night 151
Featherweight prospects Mike Trizano and Grant Dawson will fulfill at UFC Fight Night 151. The Democrat and Chronicle broke the information. Trizano (8-0) won TUF 27 and is so far 2-0 in the UFC including an upset win over Luis Pena his last time out. Dawson (13-1) chose over Julian Erosa in his UFC debut and is riding a four-fight win series at the moment. Both guys are solid prospects but Dawson seems to have more respect in the window and that I expect him to be favored at open.
Pat Cummins vs. Ed Herman, UFC Fight Night 151
Light heavyweights Pat Cummins and Ed Herman are set to match UFC Fight Night 151. Cummins (10-6) is 6-6 from the UFC and is coming from two straight losses to Misha Cirkunov and Corey Anderson. Herman (23-14, 1 NC) is one of the longest tenured UFC fighters and has an all-time record of 10-11, 1 NC overall from the Octagon. However, he has fallen on hard times as of late having a three-fight losing skid including losses to Gian Villante, CB Dollaway and Nikita Krylov. Now you have to fade Herman from anyone, and Cummins ought to be a small favorite here.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Allen Crowder, UFC Fight Night 153
Heavyweights Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Allen Crowder are set to meet at UFC Fight Night 153, occurring June 22 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Crowder’s team declared the bout. Rozenstruik (7-0) picked up a great knockout win over Junior Albini in his UFC debut. Crowder (10-3, 1 NC) is 1-1 at the UFC and is coming off of a DQ win over Greg Hardy. This resembles the UFC punishing Crowder for whatever reason as I fully expect Rozenstruik to get a knockout win.
