UFC 235 ADDS JOHNNY WALKER VS. MISHA CIRKUNOV

There are a few intriguing new bouts that have been revealed for upcoming fight cards, and below are my initial reactions to those bouts in the current MMA odds and ends. Johnny Walker vs. Misha Cirkunov, UFC 235 An accident to Ovince Saint-Preux has knocked him from the UFC 235 matchup from Misha Cirkunov, also filling in on short notice will be Johnny Walker. UFC 235 occur March 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. MMAFighting.com broke the news of the replacement matchup. Walker (16-3) seems like he might be the upcoming big thing in 205lbs. The Brazilian is about an eight-fight win streak and is 2-0 in the UFC with back-to-back KOs over Justin Ledet and Khalil Rountree. He is a superstar in the making and this battle will give him the opportunity to beat a ranked fighter and leap into the branch’s top-10. Cirkunov (14-4) is 5-1 in the UFC with all his wins coming from stoppage, but he has been knocked out twice. Cirkunov was arguably the best prospect at the light heavyweight division at one point, but Walker is now, and I would need to believe Walker will be a large favorite to win this battle. Alejandro Perez vs. Cody Stamann, UFC 235 Due to an accident to Song Yadong, Alejandro Perez will now take on Cody Stamann in UFC 235. Perez (21-6-1) is 7-1-1 in the UFC and conquer Eddie Wineland in his last fight. Stamann (17-2) is 3-1 in the UFC and is coming from a submission loss to Aljamain Sterling. Perez has an wonderful record but stylistically Stamann presents matchup problems for him. I think Perez will be the favorite due to his win streak, but Stamann is very live here. Luis Pena vs. Steven Peterson, UFC Fight Night 148 Featherweights Luis Pena and Steven Peterson will meet UFC Fight Night 148, taking place March 23 in Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Rodney James broke the news. Pena (5-1) is 1-1 in the UFC and lost a split decision to Michael Trizano his last time out. Peterson (17-7) is 1-1 in the UFC as well and is coming off of a split decision win over Matt Bessete. Close battle here between two men who need to obtain some more consistency, but based on his popularity Pena will surely be the betting favorite in this one despite making his 145lbs introduction. David Branch vs. Jack Hermansson, UFC on ESPN 2 Middleweights David Branch and Jack Hermansson are set to lock horns at UFC on ESPN two, occurring March 30 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Branch (22-5) is 2-2 in his most recent stint at the UFC but is coming from a sudden KO loss to Jared Cannonier. Hermansson (18-4) is 5-2 at the Octagon and is coming from back-to-back stoppage wins over Thales Leites and Gerald Meerschaert. Branch was on a great win streak for a while but the two knockout losses he has in the UFC worries me. I’d have to prefer Hermansson within this one only based on his momentum and also the fact he is the younger and larger fighter in this matchup.
