UFC OTTAWA ANNOUNCED WITH SEVERAL BOUTS INCLUDING DEREK BRUNSON VS. ELIAS THEODOROU

This week, UFC Fight Night 150 was formally declared and the event will occur May 4 at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Along with declaring the card, a number of bouts have been revealed, and here they are under along with my first thoughts on them. Derek Brunson vs. Elias Theodorou, UFC Fight Night 150 The most crucial battle declared for this card thus much is a middleweight bout between top-15 fighters Derek Brunson and Elias Theodorou. Brunson (18-7) is 9-5 in the UFC and is coming off of back-to-back KO losses to Israel Adesanya and Ronaldo”Jacare” Souza. Theodorou (16-2) is 8-2 at the UFC and has won his last few fights such as a determination win over Eryk Anders in his last outing. Brunson has the wrestling and power however Theodorou has the cardio and chin. Difficult one to call but I would have to favor Theodorou at this point. Arjan Bhullar vs. Juan Adams, UFC Fight Night 150 A fun heavyweight bout sees Arjan Bhullar take on Juan Adams. Bhullar (8-1) is 2-1 at the UFC and chose over Marcelo Golm his last fight. Adams (5-0) has won five of his pro fights by TKO including a knockout over Chris de la Rocha in his UFC debut. Though Bhullar has strong wrestling, I think Adams is a top notch prospect and could make him a big favorite here. Sarah Moras vs. Leah Letson, UFC Fight Night 150 Women’s bantamweight Sarah Moras will take on Leah Letson. Moras (5-4) is 2-3 in the UFC and has lost her last two fights. Letson (5-1) is on a five-fight win streak including a success in her UFC debut. Moras is fade material and that I would heavily favor Letson to get the win . Brad Katona vs. Merab Dvalishvili, UFC Fight Night 150 Bantamweight prospect Brad Katona will get a step up when he takes on Merab Dvalishvili. Katona (8-0) is 2-0 at the UFC and just dominated Matthew Lopez in his last fight after winning TUF. Dvalishvili (8-4) is currently 1-2 in the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Terrion Ware in his last struggle. Katona is an excellent prospect and Dvalishvili is an excellent test for him at the stage of his career. It’s a hard one to call but given the reality Katona remains undefeated, and of course Canadian, I think you need to favor him here. Mitch Gagnon vs. Brian Kelleher, UFC Fight Night 150 Bantamweights in desperate need of wins will fulfill as Mitch Gagnon takes on Brian Kelleher. Gagnon (12-4) is 4-3 at the UFC and is coming from consecutive losses. Kelleher (19-10) is 3-3 at the UFC and has also lost his last two fights. Both men are fade cloth but given Gagnon’s long layoff you would have to slightly favor Kelleher within this one. Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Andrew Sanchez, UFC Fight Night 150 Former TKO middleweight champion Marc-Andre Barriault will take on Andrew Sanchez in his UFC debut. Barriault (11-1) is coming off of eight wins in a row in TKO and is one of Canada’s best MMA prospects. Sanchez (10-4) is 3-2 at the UFC and defeated Markus Perez by choice in his final fight. Sanchez is a good fighter but I think Barriault will be very good and I would definitely prefer him to get the win in the capital of Canada. Aiemann Zahabi vs. Vince Morales, UFC Fight Night 150 And finally, bantamweights Aiemann Zahabi and Vince Morales will struggle. Zahabi (7-1) is 1-1 in the UFC and lost to Ricardo Ramos through KO in his last fight. Morales (8-3) lost his UFC introduction to Yadong Song. This one could go either but I’d prefer Zahabi just because of the fact he’ll be fighting so close to home.

This week, UFC Fight Night 150 was officially announced and the event will take place May 4 at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Arjan Bhullar vs. Juan Adams, UFC Fight Night 150 A pleasure heavyweight bout sees Arjan Bhullar take on Juan Adams. Bhullar (8-1) is 2-1 in the UFC and chose over Marcelo Golm his final fight. Adams (5-0) has won all five of his pro fights by TKO including a knockout over Chris de la Rocha in his UFC debut. Though Bhullar has solid wrestling, I believe Adams is a top notch prospect and would make him a big favorite here. Sarah Moras vs. Leah Letson, UFC Fight Night 150 Women’s bantamweight Sarah Moras will take on Leah Letson. Moras (5-4) is 2-3 from the UFC and has dropped her last two conflicts. Letson (5-1) is really on a five-fight win series including a victory in her UFC debut. Moras is fade material and I would greatly favor Letson to get the win . Brad Katona vs. Merab Dvalishvili, UFC Fight Night 150 Bantamweight prospect Brad Katona will find a step up when he chooses on Merab Dvalishvili. Katona (8-0) is 2-0 at the UFC and only mastered Matthew Lopez in his final fight after winning TUF. Dvalishvili (8-4) is 1-2 at the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Terrion Ware in his final struggle. Katona is a great prospect and Dvalishvili is a great test for him at the stage of his profession. It’s a hard one to call but given the fact Katona remains undefeated, not to mention Canadian, I think you have to prefer him here. Mitch Gagnon vs. Brian Kelleher, UFC Fight Night 150 Bantamweights in dire need of wins will meet as Mitch Gagnon takes on Brian Kelleher. Gagnon (12-4) is 4-3 in the UFC and is coming off of consecutive losses. Kelleher (19-10) is 3-3 in the UFC and has also lost his last two fights. Both guys are fade material but awarded Gagnon’s long layoff you’d have to slightly favor Kelleher in this . Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Andrew Sanchez, UFC Fight Night 150 Former TKO middleweight champion Marc-Andre Barriault will take on Andrew Sanchez in his UFC debut. Barriault (11-1) is coming from eight wins in a row in TKO and is among Canada’s best MMA prospects. Sanchez (10-4) is 3-2 at the UFC and conquered Markus Perez by choice in his last fight. Sanchez is a solid fighter but I believe Barriault will be very good and I would definitely prefer him for the win in the capital of Canada.

Zahabi (7-1) is 1-1 at the UFC and lost to Ricardo Ramos via KO in his final struggle. Morales (8-3) lost his UFC debut to Yadong Song. This one can go either but I’d favor Zahabi just because of the fact he will be fighting so close to home.
