NEW UFC BOUTS ANNOUNCED INCLUDING RETURN OF GREG HARDY

00:00:00 - 26/06/2019 - thutrang

The UFC continued their current series of fight announcements late into the week, and also the newly-revealed bouts are recorded below in the MMA odds and ends.
Saparbek Safarov vs. Nick Negumereanu Due to an accident to Gokhan Saki, light heavyweight Saparbek Safarov will take on Octagon newcomer Nick Negumereanu at UFC Fight Night 147, set for March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England. The information broke. Safarov (8-2) was completed by Gian Villante and Tyson Pedro in his initial two UFC fights and that he has not fought in over a year today. Negumereanu (9-0) is a undefeated 24-year-old prospect fighting from Romania who has completed all of his pre-UFC competitions inside the space. Despite taking the fight on short notice and making his Octagon introduction, I like Negumereanu to win this particular fight. It is a pure fade on the chinny Safarov, that I expect to get cut from the UFC if he loses this fight. The odds are already out with this one, and really the UFC newcomer is a 2-to-1 preferred to get his hands raised.
Marlon Vera vs. Frankie Saenz The UFC has re-booked that the bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and Frankie Saenz that was scrapped days before UFC 235 for UFC Fight Night 148, which takes place March 23 in Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Tennessee. Vera (12-5-1) is 6-4 in the UFC and is coming from back-to-back stoppage wins over Guido Cannetti and Wuliji Buren. Saenz (13-5) is 5-3 in the UFC and defeated Henry Briones and Merab Dvalishvili in his last two bouts by decision. I don’t find the line changing much from where it closed before Saenz got hurt. Look for the line to be identical to that which it finished it, with Vera as a near 2-to-1 favorite.
Poliana Botelho vs. Lauren Mueller, UFC 236
Due to an arm injury, Paige VanZant is from her women’s flyweight bout against Poliana Botelho in UFC 236 and rather Lauren Mueller is taking the battle. The card has been set for April 13 in State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Botelho (7-2) is 2-1 in the UFC but lost by entry to Cynthia Calvillo in her final struggle. Mueller (5-1) is 1-1 in the UFC but was filed by Yanan Wu in her last struggle. It’s another battle involving two faulty fighters that may go either way, but based on title value I would expect Botelho to be favored here.
Greg Hardy vs. Dmitry Smoliakov, UFC on ESPN 3
Controversial heavyweight Greg Hardy will return at UFC on ESPN 3 against Dmitry Smoliakov. The card is currently set for April 27 at BB&T Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Igor Lazorin broke the news. Hardy (3-1) lost by DQ to Allen Crowder in his UFC debut as a huge favored but’d won his three prior pro MMA bouts by knockout. Smoliakov (9-2) has been completed in bout of his UFC looks before bouncing back with a submission win on the Russian regional scene in January. But at 36 years of age he has no upside and the UFC is bringing him in here to shed. I wouldn’t advocate putting the juice Hardy after what occurred in his UFC debut, but I fully expect him to become a monster favored yet again for this fight.
