The very first couple bouts have been shown for the UFC’s forthcoming cards from Rochester and Greensboro, and I’ll give my initial takes on these matchups below.
Aspen Ladd vs. Sijara Eubanks, UFC Fight Night 151
Moving upward from the women’s flyweight division is Sijara Eubanks, and she’ll 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 profession and is 2-0 at the UFC with a vicious TKO win over Tonya Evinger in her last outing. Eubanks (4-2) is 2-0 in the UFC and conquer Roxanne Modafferi by decision in her final fight. This is really a rematch of this pair’s previous bout in Invicta, which Ladd won by choice. I am expecting another aggressive fight this moment around, but once more I would have 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 currently 2-0 in the UFC but hasn’t fought since a KO win over Antonio Braga Neto at December 2017. Cummings (22-6) is 7-3 at the UFC and is coming off of a split decision win over Trevor Smith. Cummings is merely a gatekeeper at the stage of his career while Giles is a top prospect at 185lbs, and he will probably be a massive 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 UFC Fight Night 151. The Democrat and Chronicle broke the information. 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 streak at the moment. Both guys are strong prospects but Dawson appears to have more respect at the window and 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 meet UFC Fight Night 151. Cummins (10-6) is 6-6 in 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 also has an all-time record of 10-11, 1 NC complete in the Octagon. However, he has fallen on hard times as of late having a three-fight losing slide such as losses to Gian Villante, CB Dollaway and Nikita Krylov. Now you need to fade Herman against 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 match 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 currently 1-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a DQ win over Greg Hardy. This resembles the UFC punishing Crowder for whatever reason since I fully expect Rozenstruik to get a knockout win.
