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 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, occurring May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York. MMAjunkie broke the news. Ladd (7-0) is undefeated in her profession 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 at the UFC and beat Roxanne Modafferi by choice in her last struggle. This is really a rematch of this pair’s previous bout in Invicta, which Ladd won by decision. I’m expecting another aggressive struggle this moment round, but once again 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 has not fought since a KO win over Antonio Braga Neto in December 2017. Cummings (22-6) is 7-3 in the UFC and is coming off of 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 will likely be a massive favorite here regardless of his lengthy 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 indeed far 2-0 in the UFC such as 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 streak right now. Both guys are solid prospects but Dawson seems to get 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 and has an all-time record of 10-11, 1 NC complete from the Octagon. However, he has fallen on hard times as of late with a three-fight losing slide such as losses to Gian Villante, CB Dollaway and Nikita Krylov. At this point 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 match at UFC Fight Night 153, taking place June 22 at 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 looks like the UFC punishing Crowder for whatever reason since I fully anticipate Rozenstruik to get a knockout win.
