The official press conference was held for UFC 237, which takes place May 11 in Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The main event of the card has been formally announced to be UFC women’s strawweight champion vs. Jessica Andrade, using a pair of co-main events including Jared Cannonier vs. Anderson Silva at middleweight and Alexander Volkanovski vs. Jose Aldo at featherweight. (Instead, Aldo said he may be forced to pull out with injury, and Renato Moicano was rumored as a replacement.) A few new supporting struggles were added to the card, and my initial thoughts on these are under.
Carlos Diego Ferreira vs. Francisco Trinaldo, UFC 237
An intriguing lightweight connection between Carlos Diego Ferreira and Francisco Trinaldo has been reserved for UFC 237. MMAFighting.com broke the news. Ferreira (15-2) is 6-2 overall at the UFC and is riding an impressive four-fight win series right now. This includes a decision win over Rustam Khabilov in his last fight that pushed him closer to the top-15 in 155lbs. Trinaldo (23-6) is 13-5 overall in the UFC and is coming off of a barbarous TKO victory over Evan Dunham that knocked him to retirement. Though Trinaldo is 40, he has proven time and time again he’s among the best lightweights in the world, and he’s the perfect opponent to test in which Ferreira is at right now. That having been said, I believe you need to favor Ferreira here given his recent win series, and also the opening line for this bout will be interesting to see.
Said Nurmagomedov vs. Raoni Barcelos, UFC 237
Bantamweights Said Nurmagomedov and Raoni Barcelos will fulfill at UFC 237. Gracie Mag broke the information. Nurmagomedov (13-1) is currently 2-0 at the UFC and is riding a seven-fight win series overall including a knockout win over Ricardo Ramos in his last bout. Barcelos (13-1) is really on a six-fight win streak and is 2-0 at the UFC as well with a submission win over Chris Gutierrez in his final fight, which appears even better following his latest victory over Ryan MacDonald. Both of these guys are promising young fighters and this really is a wonderful fight. I’d expect something close to a Select Celtics lineup here, with possibly a slight lean to Barcelos due to battling in Brazil.
UFC 237 vs. Sergio Moraes, warlley Alves An exciting welterweight bout between Warlley Alves and Sergio Moraes can also be place for UFC 237. Alberto Mina was initially rumored as Alves‘ competition, but Moraes finally ended up getting the battle. Alves (12-3) is 6-2 in the UFC and is coming from a surprising TKO loss to James Krause. He simply has not lived up to the hype after his triumph on TUF Brazil 3 and is likely in a must-win situation . Moraes (14-4-1) is 8-3-1 overall from the UFC and recently had a two-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Anthony Rocco Martin. Both Alves and Moraes are strong boxers with holes in their own game, but given the youth benefit for Alves I would expect him to be a small favorite here.
Kurt Holobaugh vs. Thiago Moises, UFC 237
And lastly, featherweights Kurt Holobaugh and Thiago Moises will meet at this event. Holobaugh (17-6, 1 NC) has an overall record of 0-3 in the UFC, and is coming off of successive stoppage losses to Shane Burgos and Raoni Barcelos. Moises (11-3) was ruled at the grappling department by Beneil Dariush in his UFC debut, which snapped a two-fight win series. Both these guys are talented yet flawed fighters, and bettors may expect a Select’em type of line with this particular bout, with possibly a slight edge to Moises.
