Spread the love

There are a couple fascinating new spells which have been revealed for upcoming fight cards, and here are my first reactions to these bouts in the current MMA odds and ends.
Johnny Walker vs. Misha Cirkunov, UFC 235
An injury to Ovince Saint-Preux has knocked him out of the UFC 235 matchup from Misha Cirkunov, and filling in on short notice will be Johnny Walker. UFC 235 take place March 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. MMAFighting.com broke the news of this replacement matchup. Walker (16-3) seems like he is the upcoming huge thing at 205lbs. The Brazilian is on an eight-fight win streak and is 2-0 at the UFC with back-to-back KOs over Justin Ledet and Khalil Rountree. He’s a star in the making and this fight will give him the opportunity to beat a ranked fighter and leap in the branch’s top-10. Cirkunov (14-4) is 5-1 at the UFC with all of his wins coming by 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’d have to believe Walker will be a big favorite to win this battle.
Alejandro Perez vs. Cody Stamann, UFC 235
Due to an injury to Song Yadong, Alejandro Perez will take on Cody Stamann at UFC 235. Perez (21-6-1) is 7-1-1 in the UFC and beat Eddie Wineland in his last fight. Stamann (17-2) is currently 3-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a submission reduction to Aljamain Sterling. Perez has an awesome album but stylistically Stamann presents matchup problems for him. I think Perez is going to be the favorite due to his win series, however, Stamann is quite 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 at 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 out time. Peterson (17-7) is currently 1-1 in the UFC as well and is coming off of a split decision win over Matt Bessete. Close fight here between two men who must obtain more consistency, but based on his popularity Pena will surely be the betting favorite in this one despite creating his 145lbs introduction.
David Branch vs. Jack Hermansson, UFC on ESPN two Middleweights David Branch and Jack Hermansson are set to lock horns in UFC on ESPN 2, occurring March 30 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Branch (22-5) is 2-2 in his most recent stint in 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 series for some time but the two knockout losses he has from the UFC worries me. I’d have to favor Hermansson in this one only based on his momentum and also the fact he’s the younger and larger fighter in this matchup.
