A few new bouts have been revealed for upcoming UFC Fight Night cards, and they are listed below along with my initial ideas on them.
Charles Oliveira vs. Nik Lentz 3, UFC Fight Night 151
At a trilogy struggle, Charles Oliveira matches Nik Lentz at UFC Fight Night 151, set for May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York. These two have met previously, with a No Contest in their very first meeting after Oliveira landed an illegal knee that caused the conclusion, and then a submission win for Oliveira in the rematch. Now, they compete to get a third and presumably final time. Oliveira (26-8, 1 NC) is 14-8, 1 NC total in the UFC and has won four consecutive fights, all by entry. He holds the record for the many admissions in UFC history, with 13. Lentz (30-9-2, 1 NC) is currently 14-6-1, 1 NC in the UFC and has won back-to-back conflicts over Scott Holtzman and Gray Maynard and has evolved from a grinding wrestling to a yearlong combined martial artist. Given that Oliveira has already beaten Lentz by submission and is as sexy as any lightweight on earth at this time, he should be a big favorite to win against the trilogy struggle, although I wouldn’t fully count Lentz out.
Andrea Lee vs. Montana De La Rosa, UFC Fight Night 153
Women’s flyweights Andrea Lee and Montana De La Rosa will fulfill UFC Fight Night 153, occurring June 22 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Nolan King of all FloCombat broke the information. Lee (10-2) is 2-0 at the UFC and is riding an impressive six-fight win series overall with back-to-back wins over Ashlee Evans-Smith and Veronica Macedo. De La Rosa (10-4) is 3-0 in the UFC with three wins by entry such as a tapout over Rachael Ostovich. Eight of her 10 career wins have actually come by submission, making her among the most dangerous flyweight prospects in the UFC at this time. These are a couple of the greatest prospects in 125lbs, but the fact De La Rosa is finishing all her fights need to make her the betting favorite going into it.
Jordan Griffin vs. Chas Skelly, UFC on ESPN 4
Featherweights Jordan Griffin and Chas Skelly are set to meet at UFC on ESPN 4, occurring June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Griffin (17-6) lost a decision to Dan Ige within his UFC debut that snapped his four-fight win streak, which included a win on Dana White’s Contender Series that initially got him into the UFC. Actually Ige simply ruined Danny Henry makes Griffin’s close decision loss look a little better, but he certainly needs to beat Skelly here and start building a new win streak if he would like to be a featherweight contender from the UFC. Skelly (17-4) has a winning record of 7-4 in the UFC but is coming off of back-to-back stoppage losses to Bobby Moffett and Jason Knight. At one point in time he seemed like a featherweight on the upswing, but his last few performances were so poor and he needs to rebound here against Griffin. This should be a competitive struggle, but it may be a fantastic place to fade Skelly and choose Griffin if he is available at dog cash.
