The first couple bouts are revealed for the UFC’s forthcoming cards from Rochester and Greensboro, and I’ll present 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’ll fight Aspen Ladd in 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 profession and is 2-0 at the UFC with a vicious TKO win over Tonya Evinger in her final outing. Eubanks (4-2) is 2-0 at the UFC and conquer Roxanne Modafferi by choice in her final fight. This is actually a rematch of this pair’s past bout in Invicta, which Ladd won by decision. I am expecting another competitive fight this moment round, but once again I would need to prefer Ladd to win the battle.
Trevin Giles vs. Zak Cummings, UFC Fight Night 151
Additionally added to UFC Fight Night 151 is a middleweight bout between Trevin Giles and Zak Cummings. Giles (11-0) is 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 at 185lbs, and he’ll likely be a huge favorite here despite his long layoff.
Mike Trizano vs. Grant Dawson, UFC Fight Night 151
Featherweight prospects Mike Trizano and Grant Dawson will meet UFC Fight Night 151. The Democrat and Chronicle broke the news. Trizano (8-0) won TUF 27 and is indeed far 2-0 from the UFC such as an upset win over Luis Pena his out time. Dawson (13-1) won a decision over Julian Erosa in his UFC debut and is riding a four-fight win series at the moment. Both guys are strong prospects but Dawson seems to get more respect in the window and that I expect him to be preferred at open.
Pat Cummins vs. Ed Herman, UFC Fight Night 151
Light heavyweights Pat Cummins and Ed Herman are set to meet at UFC Fight Night 151. Cummins (10-6) is 6-6 in the UFC and is coming off of 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 in the Octagon. However, he’s fallen on hard times as of late having a three-fight losing skid such as declines to Gian Villante, CB Dollaway and Nikita Krylov. Now you need to fade Herman against anyone, and Cummins should 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 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Crowder’s team announced the bout. Rozenstruik (7-0) picked up a fantastic knockout win over Junior Albini in his UFC debut. Crowder (10-3, 1 NC) is currently 1-1 at the UFC and is coming off of a DQ win over Greg Hardy. This resembles the UFC penalizing Crowder for whatever motive as I fully anticipate Rozenstruik to receive a knockout win.
