NEW UFC BOUTS ANNOUNCED INCLUDING RETURN OF GREG HARDY

The UFC continued their current series of struggle announcements late into the week, and also the newly-revealed bouts are recorded below in today’s MMA odds and ends. Saparbek Safarov vs. Nick Negumereanu Because of an injury to Gokhan Saki, light heavyweight Saparbek Safarov will now take on Octagon newcomer Nick Negumereanu at UFC Fight Night 147, set for March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England. The news was broken by nolan King of all FloCombat. Safarov (8-2) was completed by Gian Villante and Tyson Pedro in his first two UFC fights and that he hasn’t fought in over a year now. Negumereanu (9-0) is a undefeated 24-year-old prospect fighting from Romania that has completed all his pre-UFC opponents inside the distance. Despite taking the fight on short notice and making his Octagon debut, I like Negumereanu to win this fight. It is a pure grin on the chinny Safarov, who I expect to get cut from the UFC when he loses this fight. The chances are already out with this one, and indeed the UFC newcomer is a 2-to-1 preferred to get his hands raised. UFC Fight Night 148 vs. Frankie Saenz, marlon Vera The UFC has re-booked that the bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and Frankie Saenz that has been 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 at 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 really don’t see the lineup shifting much from where it shut before Saenz got hurt. Start looking for the line to be equal to that which it finished it, with Vera as a close 2-to-1 favorite. Poliana Botelho vs. Lauren Mueller, UFC 236 Because of an arm injury, Paige VanZant is out of her women’s flyweight bout against Poliana Botelho at UFC 236 and rather Lauren Mueller is shooting the fight. The card has been set for April 13 at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Botelho (7-2) is 2-1 at 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 final struggle. It is another battle involving two flawed fighters who could 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 set for April 27 in BB&T Center at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Igor Lazorin broke the information. Hardy (3-1) lost by DQ to Allen Crowder in his UFC debut as a massive favorite but’d won his three prior pro MMA bouts by knockout. Smoliakov (9-2) has been finished in bout of his UFC looks before bouncing back with a entry win on the Russian regional arena in January. However, at 36 decades old he has no upside and the UFC is bringing him here to lose. I would not advocate putting the juice on Hardy after what happened in his UFC debut, but I fully expect him to become a monster favored yet again for this fight.

The UFC continued their current string of struggle announcements late into the week, and also the newly-revealed bouts are listed below in the MMA odds and ends.

Negumereanu (9-0) is an undefeated 24-year-old prospect fighting out of Romania who has finished all his pre-UFC opponents within the distance. Despite taking the fight on short notice and creating his Octagon introduction, I like Negumereanu to win this particular battle. It’s a pure fade about the chinny Safarov, that I hope to get cut from the UFC when he loses this battle. The odds are already out for this one, and indeed the UFC newcomer is a 2-to-1 preferred to get his hand raised. Marlon Vera vs. Frankie Saenz The UFC has re-booked the bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and Frankie Saenz which was scrapped days before UFC 235 for UFC Fight Night 148, which takes place March 23 in Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Tennessee.

Start looking for the line to be identical to what 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 shooting the fight. The card is set for April 13 in State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Botelho (7-2) is 2-1 at the UFC but lost by submission to Cynthia Calvillo in her final struggle. Mueller (5-1) is 1-1 at the UFC but was submitted by Yanan Wu in her final struggle. It is another fight between two flawed fighters who could go either way, but based on name value I’d expect Botelho to be preferred 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 at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Igor Lazorin broke the information. Hardy (3-1) dropped by DQ to Allen Crowder in his UFC debut as a huge favorite but had won his three prior pro MMA bouts by knockout. Smoliakov (9-2) was finished in bout of his UFC appearances before bouncing back with a entry win on the Russian regional arena in January. But at 36 decades of age he does not have any upside and the UFC is bringing him in here to lose. I would not advocate putting the juice on Hardy after what occurred in his UFC debut, but I fully expect him to become a monster favored yet again for this particular fight.
