UFC 238 occurs June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois, and also the card lately had a range of new spells added to the card. Below are my first ideas on them.
Aljamain Sterling vs. Pedro Munhoz, UFC 238
Leading bantamweight contenders Aljamain Sterling and Pedro Munhoz are set to match at UFC 238. The bout has been first reported by ESPN. Sterling (17-3) is 9-3 in the UFC and is now riding a three-fight win series that includes a conclusion win over Jimmie Rivera his last time out. Munhoz (18-3, 1 NC) is 8-3, 1 NC and is also riding a three-fight win series which contains an incredible KO over Cody Garbrandt in his last bout. Though Sterling has looked great lately and is finally starting to live up to his potential, Munhoz’ win over Garbrandt revealed that he is an elite bantamweight from the game, and he deserves to be the favorite in this fight.
Jimmie Rivera vs. Petr Yan, UFC 238
At the same time, bantamweights Jimmie Rivera and Petr Yan will fight at UFC 238. Rivera (22-3) is a remarkable 6-2 overall from the UFC but is coming from a decision loss to Aljamain Sterling. Yan (12-1) is currently 4-0 at the UFC and many recently conquered John Dodson by decision. Rivera continues to be a good bantamweight for many years within the Octagon but with a 1-2 record over his last three fights is starting to show serious signs of a decrease, whereas Yan looks like he might be a future champion at 135lbs. I’d anticipate Yan for a sizeable favorite in this bout.
Ricardo Lamas vs. Calvin Kattar, UFC 238
An intriguing featherweight bout pits Ricardo Lamas against Calvin Kattar. The news of the bout was initially reported by The Chicago Tribune. Lamas (19-7) is 10-5 overall at the UFC and is coming off of a TKO win over Darren Elkins. Kattar (19-3) is 3-1 in the UFC and many recently conquered Chris Fishgold by TKO. Lamas was a fantastic, underrated featherweight for several years within the Octagon, but Kattar has looked amazing in every fight he has had in the UFC save for his decision loss to Renato Moicano. I would need to slightly favor Kattar to win this fight.
Felice Herrig vs. Xiaonan Yan, UFC 238
Women’s strawweights collide as Felice Herrig is set to shoot on Xiaonan Yan. Herrig (14-8) is a Chicago-area native who is 5-3 overall in the UFC, but she’s coming off of last-minute conclusion losses to Michelle Waterson and Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Yan (10-0, 1 NC) is 3-0 so far in the UFC but her best win is likely over Kailin Curran. Yan is a decent prospect at 115lbs, but I am not ready to write off Herrig just yet, and I would have to prefer her to win this fight.
Tai Tuivasa vs. Blagoy Ivanov, UFC 238
And finally, heavyweights Tai Tuivasa and Blagoy Ivanov will battle UFC 238. Tuivasa (8-1) is 3-1 at the UFC but is coming off of a barbarous TKO loss to Junior dos Santos. Ivanov (17-2, 1 NC) is 1-1 at the UFC with a choice loss to JDC along with a decision win over Ben Rothwell. This looks like a coin flip, but according to Tuivasa’s youth benefit and KO power I’d slightly lean towards him to get the win.
