Two or three exciting welterweight bouts were shown for upcoming March fight cards, and I will give my initial thoughts on these new matchups in the current MMA odds and ends.
Curtis Millender vs. Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos Surging welterweights Curtis Millender and Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos will fulfill at UFC Fight Night 146, which takes place March 9 in Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Globo revealed that the news . This is an important welterweight fight between two fighters on hot streaks which should bump the victor into the top-10 on the planet at 170lbs.
Millender (17-3) is a perfect 3-0 so far in the UFC, and then he went 4-0 overall in 2018 for example his period in LFA. He started his UFC debut with a bang when he pumped out Thiago Alves, then followed it up with conclusion wins over Max Griffin and Siyar Bahadurzada. In general, Millender has won eight consecutive fights and many believe he has the potential be a potential winner as a consequence of his size for the welterweight divison and his elite striking technique. Dos Santos (20-5) has gone 6-1 in the UFC and has not lost within the Octagon since a split decision defeat Nicholas Dalby in his debut. His last two fights were amazing as he showed his awesome knockout power with brutal wins over Sean Strickland and Luigi Vendramini. He’s already broken to the top-15 rankings and may jump into the top-10 if he beats Millender. This is a very good, competitive fight on paper that I could see either man. I honestly think it’s about as close to as much of a struggle as you can get, and I am hoping a Select’em line in the sportsbooks.
Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson vs. Anthony Pettis, UFC Fight Night Nashville
Former UFC lightweight winner Anthony Pettis has decided to make the move up to welterweight, and he will make his debut in his new weight class against top competition Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson in what’s an intriguing conflict between elite strikers. The pair will meet in a UFC Fight Night card that has not yet been declared yet on March 23 at Nashville, Tennessee, according to a report by ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. The scribe reports which the bout has been agreed to, and the UFC should officially announce it . Thompson (14-3-1) is 9-3-1 at the UFC and in his last outing lost a very controversial decision to Darren Till. He is only 1-2-1 in his last four fights, but it’s hard to say he’s on a decline when two of those non-victories came from UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, along with his win over Jorge Masvidal showed he’s still a top fighter at 170lbs. Pettis (21-8) is 8-7 overall at the UFC and in his last fight was TKOed by Tony Ferguson in a 2018″Fight of the Year” contender. All Pettis’ previous spells came in featherweight and lightweight so this movement to welterweight is interesting. Having said that, I really don’t believe I could pick Pettis here only based on all the damage he is accepted as of late and the reality Thompson is a natural welterweight. Start looking to start as a favorite here.
