UFC Fight Night Uruguay: Shevchenko vs Carmouche II

For the first time in UFC history, the Octagon will be set up at the Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay for UFC Fight Night: Shevchenko vs Carmouche II.

The women’s flyweight belt will be on line with the champion, Valentina”Bullet” Shevchenko, function as heavy -1000 favorite and??the challenger, Liz”Girl-rilla” Carmouche, coming straight back at +600. I have a breakdown and a pick for each of the fights on the most important card. Shevchenko (-1000) is earning her second name defense and is aiming to get a fourth consecutive win overall. “Bullet” fell down from bantamweight once the flyweight division opened and has put together a three-fight winning series, such as beating Joanna Jedrzejczyk to acquire the belt and then defending it against Jessica Eye in UFC 238 at June. The 31-year-old has a great fight IQ and also does a really great job reading her competitor. Shevchenko throws??strong kicks that she fires quite quickly and accurately, while projecting solid straight punches as well. Furthermore, if she does feel any pressure in the game that is spectacular, she has the abilities to bring the battle to the floor as she averages 2.2 takedowns a 15 minutes. Carmouche (+600) is searching for her first three-fight winning streak since she won the first six fights of her pro career. “Girl-rilla” has gone into the judges’ scorecards in each of the last seven fights, with the just two finishes at the Octagon coming in her first two fights, a submission loss to Ronda Rousey along with a knockout win over present strawweight champion??Jessica Andrade. The California native is a really active fighter, always bouncing about on the outside and feinting in searching for her opportunities to shoot and create a clinch or a takedown. She averages 2.95 takedowns a 15 minutes and strikes 55 percent of her attempts, earning a number of takedowns in each of her last six conflicts. On her feet, Carmouche has a fast jab??but does not throw a good deal of strikes, but instead racking??up her attack total via floor and pound. Shevchenko has lost to only two girls in her career, Amanda Nunes (double ) and Liz Carmouche back in 2010. Additionally, that reduction to Girl-rilla was her only weight loss loss since she moved into the judges’ scorecards equally times vs Nunes. I believe Bullet is going to have a enormous advantage on the toes with her terrific counters and shouts. Meanwhile,??she hires 73 percent of takedown attempts, in which Carmouche will need the??fight to go. I really think there’s value on Carmouche at her number but I don’t believe she wins the rematch. Luque (-225) attempts to push winning streak to six, together using the??previous five wins all being??finishes. Overall,”The Silent Assassin” is 9-2 in the UFC with all of his wins being ends along with his two losses coming via decision. The Brazil native has two knockout victories this season. The first had been an epic war with Bryan Barberena and the moment was a first-round ending of Derrick Krantz in May. Luque has fantastic precision and sets his striking up nicely with mixes rather than just throwing one attack at one moment. He??has enormous power behind his strikes because he’s knocked out his last four competitors. In addition, he does a good job shifting stances and maintaining his hands to avoid much damage coming back the other way. Conditioning may be a bit of an issue, though, because he slowed down a great deal in his war with Barberena at February. Perry (+175) appears to collect back-to-back successes for the first time because he conquer Jake Ellenberger and Alex Reyes in 2017. Since then,”Platinum” has gone 2-3 together with his two victories coming from decision over Paul Felder and, most lately, Alex Oliveira at April. The 27-year-old is a lasting and hard-nosed brawler who continues to improve every time he steps inside the cage. Platinum takes the middle of the Octagon and won’t have a step backward, even getting into the face of his opponent??at a telephone booth-style battle. Defensively, he doesn’t always keep his hands and does not have a great deal of head motion, that has led to him swallowing 4.27 strikes every minute. This has Battle of the Night written all over it. I think that Luque is the better striker offensively and defensively but Perry hasn’t been knocked out despite being at certain wild brawls. However, the longer the fight goes, the longer the momentum swings in favor of Platinum since the Silent Assassin did slow in his war with Barberena, though he’d hand Barberena his first career knockout loss because bout. Garagorri (-135) is set to make his UFC debut and in doing so??lays his perfect record on the line. Even the Uruguay native has completed each of his last five fights, all in the first circular, four by submission and one by knockout. In general, he has finished nine of his 11 pro wins, four knockout and five through entry. The 30-year-old is an aggressive fighter that storms in his competition with crazy strikes and nasty knees in the clinch. He makes good notes, swaying out of the manner of strikes before sending out a barrage of his the other way looking to put his rival away. In addition, he is reckless on the ground, together with five submissions to his title, including four in his last five successes. Bandenay (+105) looks to get back into the win column and put an end for his two-fight losing slide. The Peru native was signed by the UFC if he had been to get a five-fight winning series, all which were endings, but he has a 1-2 record in the Octagon, getting knocked out by a slam vs Gabriel Benitez and losing??with a three-round conclusion vs Austin Arnett his final time out in November. Bandenay uses a lot of kicks to put up his offensive strategy, slowly inching forward until he is in range to unleash a flurry of strikes. When backing up defense, he proceeds to not keep his hands to protect against strikes coming back and he frequently stands somewhat flat-footed after early offensive storms, looking a little tired. Finally, he seldom cries his right hand to get a jab??but instead only long rips or overextending abandoned palms. Garagorri is a written fighter who is very patient setting up his shots, but if he engages, he throws combinations with a great deal of power. It’ll be interesting to see how he manages Bandenay’s long kicks and the huge lights of this UFC. Oezdemir (N/A) intends to put an end to his career-worst??three-fight losing slip and then collect his first victory since July??2017. “No Time” taken the light heavyweight rankings with three consecutive wins in his first 3 fights, just two of which were first-round knockouts that had just 1:10 joined to finish. But he’s now dropped three in a row into Daniel Cormier, Anthony Smith and Dominick Reyes. The Switzerland native is a very dangerous fighter at the very first round, always stalking his opponent??looking to land his heavy hands and set his foe??away quickly. Oezdemir does not just put up his strikes that well but instead throws lunging hooks to close the space, where he could work in the clinch with strikes or bring??the fight to the ground. The biggest knock on Oezdemir is that he melts the after the round goes or the more the fight moves, but his elimination appeared better against Reyes in his final appearance. Latifi (N/A) tries to avoid his first-ever losing slide as he’s coming off a three-round unanimous-decision defeat to Corey Anderson last December. “The Sledgehammer” includes six losses in his career but hasn’t had back-to-back defeats. Before his most recent reduction, Latifi had been on a two-fight winning streak over Tyson Pedro and also Ovince Saint??Preux. The Sweden native is predominantly a counter-striker, which makes sense since??he’s brief for the branch, and??utilizes his opponent’s forwards pressure to assist him close the distance. He doesn’t have an extremely significant output, staying on the outside, and he prefers to dictate where the fight occurs, averaging 1.89 takedowns a 15 minutes and not??ever being??removed in the Octagon. There might be fireworks in the opening round of this bout, however, the pace could slow dramatically later. Both Latifi and Oezdemir have a tendency to throw big looping hooks that have a good deal of power behind them. On the other hand, the Sledgehammer will be patient and waits for his foe??to press ahead, while No Time enjoys to be the aggressor. The Switzerland native has straighter punches and I think he’s more energy, which may function as difference-maker. Vieira (-185) creates his Octagon introduction and looks to stay undefeated. “The Black Belt Hunter” brings with him a perfect 5-0 record, including four??submission victories and one??knockout. Furthermore, one of his five fights has??gone past the first round and that was back in 2017 in the second battle of his profession. The Brazil native has quite good footwork that enables him to stay out of risk of the opponent’s strikes and provides him chances to find openings for a takedown. Vieira’s striking isn’t really something to be worried because he moans extended jabs and leg strikes to make it seem like he is functioning, but his primary objective is dragging the fight to the ground and he has terrific level changes and power to achieve that objective. Piechota (+150) returns to the Octagon for the first time since suffering his first career loss last July. “Imadlo” needed a perfect 11-0-1 record before falling via second-round entry to Gerald Meerschaert from the supreme Fighter 27 Finale. The Poland indigenous has completed 10 of his 11 victories, five by knockout and five by entry. The 29-year-old has great footwork and head movement as he bounces around gradually stalking forward. He does tend to second-guess himself in striking, finding an opportunity to property but yanking back. When he does throw, he’s good accuracy and strength. Additionally, in the event the struggle hits the ground, he’s very aggressive in looking for a entry, however, his lone loss also came in that manner. Neither fighter pulls on the trigger that harshly on the feet, more so just waiting to get the ideal opportunity to land the big strike. Piechota slowed down big time in his final fight with Gerald Meerschaert and has been dragged to the floor three days and ultimately finished in the next round. If he has a hard time stuffing Vieira’s shot, it could be a short day for your Poland native. Barzola (-200) looks to get back on course after getting his four-fight winning streak snapped his last time out in March. The last seven conflicts that”El Fuerte” was gone into the judges’ scorecards –??five he won and 2 that he dropped, such as his last bout with Kevin Aguilar. The Peru native has not earned an ending since 2014, just before he joined the UFC. Barzola has very excellent footwork with excellent speed and the capability to switch stances. He uses the abilities to maintain his opponent??off-balance so he can find an opportunity to shoot and bring the fight to the floor, since he averages 5.29 takedowns per 15 minutes. El Fuerte has got several takedowns in all five of the wins within the Octagon. However, in his two reductions, he had a combined one takedown, maybe not finding a lot of success on the toes. Moffett (+160) aims to rebound from his first reduction at the UFC his last time out in March. “The Wolfman” gained a UFC contract with his second-round submission success over Jacob Kilburn in Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series past August. He followed up with the other second-round entry win versus Chas Skelly but??dropped to Bryce Mitchell by unanimous decision in March. The Illinois native is a fighter that is mythical, closing the distance with jabs and straight rights. That having been said, his bread and butter will be in grappling markets, maybe not in wars on the toes. He procured six takedowns during his first 2 fights in the UFC, earning a submission victory in the first one but??taking Mitchell down five days without having the ability to procure a entry. This fight will probably be a grappling struggle between two strong wrestlers and Moffett probably has the edge in the submission game. Barzola will be a lot quicker on the toes and could continue to keep the fight standing and just pick Moffett besides afar however the Wolfman probably has the power advantage, which makes for a very interesting battle.
