For the Very first time in UFC history, the Octagon will Probably Be Put up in the Antel Arena at Montevideo, Uruguay to Get 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 back at +600. I’ve a breakdown and a choice for every one of those fights on the home card.
Shevchenko (-1000) is making her next title defense and is planning to pick up a fourth straight win overall. “Bullet” dropped down from bantamweight when the flyweight division opened and has assembled a three-fight winning streak, including beating Joanna Jedrzejczyk to acquire the belt then defending it from Jessica Eye at UFC 238 at June.
The 31-year-old includes a terrific fight IQ and does a really great job reading her competitor. Shevchenko throws strong kicks she fires very quickly and correctly, while throwing solid straight punches as well. Furthermore, if she really does feel any pressure in the striking game, she has the abilities to bring the battle to the ground as she averages 2.2 takedowns a 15 minutes.
Carmouche (+600) is searching for her first three-fight winning series since she won the first six conflicts of her 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 from her first two fights, a entry loss to Ronda Rousey plus a knockout win over current strawweight champion Jessica Andrade.
The California native is a very active fighter, constantly bouncing about on the outside and feinting in searching for her opportunities to take and make a clinch or a takedown. She averages 2.95 takedowns a 15 minutes and hits 55 per cent of her efforts, earning many takedowns in each of her last six conflicts. On her feet, Carmouche has a fast jab but doesn’t throw a lot of strikes, but rather racking up her strike total through floor and pound.
Shevchenko has dropped to only two women in her profession, Amanda Nunes (double ) and Liz Carmouche back in 2010. Additionally, that reduction to Girl-rilla was her only knockout loss as she went into the judges’ scorecards equally instances vs Nunes. I believe Bullet will have a enormous advantage on the feet with her terrific counters and kicks. Meanwhile,she hires 73 percent of takedown efforts, in which Carmouche will want the fight to move. I really do think there’s value on Carmouche at her number but I don’t think she wins the rematch.
Luque (-225) tries to drive winning streak to six, using the prior five wins being finishes. Overall,”The Quiet Assassin” is 9-2 at the UFC with all of his wins being finishes and his two losses coming via conclusion. The Brazil native has two knockout victories this past season. The first was an epic war by Bryan Barberena and the second was a first-round conclusion of Derrick Krantz in May.
Luque has fantastic accuracy and sets his striking up well with mixes rather than just throwing one attack at one moment. He has tremendous power behind his attacks because he has pumped his last four competitors. In addition, he does a fantastic job switching stances and maintaining his hands high to prevent much harm coming back another way. Conditioning can be a little bit of an issue, however, as he slowed down to a great deal in his warfare with Barberena in February.
Perry (+175) seems to collect back-to-back successes for the first time since he beat Jake Ellenberger and Alex Reyes at 2017. Since then,”Platinum” has gone 2-3 with his two victories coming by decision over Paul Felder and, most recently, Alex Oliveira at April.
The 27-year-old is a lasting and hard-nosed brawler who continues to enhance every time he steps within the cage. Platinum takes the middle of the Octagon and will not take a step backward, even becoming into the face of his opponent in a telephone booth-style battle. Defensively, he doesn’t always keep his hands and doesn’t have a lot of head movement, that has contributed to him absorbing 4.27 strikes every minute.
This has Battle of the Night written around it. I presume that Luque is the better striker offensively and defensively but Perry has never been pumped out despite being at some crazy brawls. On the other hand, the more the battle goes, the longer the momentum swings in favour of Platinum since the Quiet Assassin failed slow in his war with Barberena, although he did 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 at stake. Even the Uruguay native has completed each of the last five fights, all from the first circular, four by entry and one by knockout. Overall, he’s completed eight of his 11 professional winsfour knockout and five through entry.
The 30-year-old is an aggressive fighter who storms at his rival with wild strikes and horrible knees in the clinch. He makes good notes, swaying out of the manner of strikes before sending a barrage of his own the other way looking to put his opponent off. Additionally, he is reckless on the floor, together with five admissions to his title, including four in his last five victories.
Bandenay (+105) seems to get back in the win column and put an end to his two-fight losing slide. The Peru native has been signed by the UFC if he had been about to get a five-fight winning series, all which were endings, but he has a 1-2 record at the Octagon, getting knocked out by a hammer vs Gabriel Benitez and losing with a three-round decision vs Austin Arnett his last time out in November.
Bandenay employs a whole good deal of kicks to set up his offensive strategy, slowly inching forward until he is in range to unleash a flurry of strikes. When backing up on defense, he tends not to keep his hands high to protect against attacks coming back and he also frequently stands a little flat-footed after premature offensive storms, looking somewhat tired. Lastly, he seldom cries his right hand to get a jab but rather just long rips or overextending left hands.
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 the way he manages Bandenay’s long kicks and the huge lights of the UFC.
Oezdemir (N/A) aims to put an end to his own career-worst three-fight losing slide and then accumulate his first victory since July 2017. “No Time” shot up the light heavyweight rankings with three straight wins in his first few fights, two of which were first-round knockouts that had only 1:10 combined to complete. However, he has dropped three in a row into Daniel Cormier, Anthony Smith and Dominick Reyes.
The Switzerland indigenous is an extremely dangerous fighter at the first round, constantly stalking his competitor looking to land his thick hands and put his foe off quickly. Oezdemir doesn’t exactly set up his strikes that nicely but instead throws lunging hooks to close the space, where he could work from the clinch with attacks or bring??the struggle to the floor. The biggest knock Oezdemir is he melts the following the round goes or the longer the battle goes, but his conditioning appeared far better against Reyes in his final look.
Latifi (N/A) attempts to avoid his first-ever losing slip as he is coming off a three-round unanimous-decision defeat to Corey Anderson last December. “The Sledgehammer” includes six losses in his career but hasn’t needed back-to-back defeats. Before his latest reduction, Latifi was 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 because he’s brief for the division, and uses his opponent’s forwards pressure to assist him shut the space. He does not have a very significant output, remaining on the outdoors, and he wants to dictate where the battle takes place, averaging 1.89 takedowns a 15 minutes and not ever being removed at the Octagon.
There could be fireworks at the opening round of the bout, but the pace could slow dramatically later. The two Latifi and Oezdemir have a tendency to throw large looping hooks which have a whole lot of power behind them. On the other hand, the Sledgehammer will become more patient and begs for his foe to press ahead, while no Timing likes to be the aggressor. The Switzerland native has straighter cries and that I think he’s more energy, which could function as difference-maker.
Vieira (-185) makes his Octagon introduction and looks to remain undefeated. “The Black Belt Hunter” brings with him a perfect 5-0 record, including four entry victories and one knockout. Furthermore, one of his five fights has gone past the first round which was back in 2017 in the next battle of his career.
The Brazil native has quite excellent footwork which allows him to stand out of risk of his competitor’s strikes and gives him chances to find openings to get a takedown. Vieira’s striking isn’t really something to be dreaded as he throws long jabs and leg strikes to make it seem like he’s functioning, but his principal objective is dragging the battle to the floor and he has terrific amount changes and strength to attain that objective.
Piechota (+150) returns to the Octagon for the very first time since suffering his first career loss last July. “Imadlo” needed a perfect 11-0-1 list before falling through second-round submission to Gerald Meerschaert from the supreme Fighter 27 Finale. The Poland indigenous has finished 10 of the 11 victories, five by five and ten by submission.
The 29-year-old has great footwork and head movement because he bounces around slowly stalking forward. He does tend to second-guess himself sometimes in dramatic, locating an opportunity to land but withdrawing back. When he does throw, he has good precision and strength. Furthermore, if the fight hits the ground, he is very competitive in trying a entry, however, his only loss also came from that fashion.
Neither fighter pulls the trigger that aggressively on the toes, more so just waiting to discover the perfect chance to land the major attack. Piechota slowed down time in his last fight with Gerald Meerschaert and was dragged to the floor three days and finally ended in the second round. If he has difficulty stuffing Vieira’s shot, then it might be a brief evening for your Poland native.
Barzola (-200) seems to get back on the right track after having his four-fight winning streak snapped his very last time from March. The last seven conflicts that”El Fuerte” has been gone into the judges’ scorecards – five that he won and 2 that he lost, including his last relationship with Kevin Aguilar. The Peru native hasn’t earned a finish since 2014, just before he joined the UFC.
Barzola has very good footwork with excellent speed and the ability to switch stances. He uses the skills to keep his opponent off-balance so he could locate an opportunity to take and bring the fight to the floor, as he averages 5.29 takedowns a 15 minutes. El Fuerte has got several takedowns in all five of the wins inside the Octagon. However, in his two losses, he also had a joint one takedown, maybe not finding a huge amount of succeeding on the toes.
Moffett (+160) aims to rebound from his first reduction in the UFC his very last time out in March. “The Wolfman” got a UFC contract with his second-round submission victory over Jacob Kilburn at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series past August. He followed that up with a different second-round entry win versus Chas Skelly but lost to Bryce Mitchell by unanimous conclusion in March.
The Illinois native is a smothering fighter, closing the space with jabs and straight rights. That said, his bread and butter is in grappling exchanges, not in wars on the toes. He secured six takedowns during his first two fights in the UFC, earning a submission success in the first one but taking Mitchell down five days without even being able to secure a entry.
This battle will likely be a grappling struggle between two strong wrestlers and Moffett likely has the advantage in the entry game. Barzola will be much faster on the feet and may keep the fight standing and only select Moffett apart from afar however, the Wolfman probably has the strength advantage, which makes for an extremely interesting battle.
