The Octagon is led back for UFC 236 to Atlanta, Georgia. The card takes place April 13 at State Farm Arena, and some of the newest bouts added to the card are given below.
Alan Jouban vs. Dwight Grant, UFC 236
Welterweights Alan Jouban and Dwight Grant will meet UFC 236. Zack Klein of all ABC broke the news. Jouban (16-6) is 7-4 in the UFC and many recently defeated Ben Saunders via KO at a 2018″Fight of the Year“ candidate. Grant (9-2) revealed some Octagon jitters in his UFC debut when he dropped a split decision to Zak Ottow, but he bounced back well with a TKO win over Carlo Pedersoli Jr. in his last struggle. Jouban has more expertise and on paper is the better fighter, but he’s also 37 and hasn’t fought in over a year. This may be the right time to fade him and proceed with Grant, who I’m hoping to be the underdog in this one.
Jalin Turner vs. Matt Frevola, UFC 236
A lightweight matchup between Jalin Turner and Matt Frevola is also set for UFC 236. Turner (8-4) was brutally knocked out by Vicente Luque in his UFC debut but bounced back nicely with a TKO win over Callan Potter his last time out. Only 23, he looks like a very good potential at 155lbs. Frevola (6-1-1) was pumped out by Marco Polo Reyes in his UFC debut and then fought to an exciting draw contrary Lando Vannata his last time out. Frevola is a lot better of a fighter than many give him credit for, but given how impressive Turner looked in his UFC sophomore attempt, you have to go together to win this battle as a major favorite.
UFC 236 vs. Zelim Imadaev, max Griffin Taking place at UFC 236 is a welterweight bout between Max Griffin and Zelim Imadaev. ESPN broke the information. Griffin (14-6) has a fair record of 2-4 from the Octagon, but believed he should’ve got a split decision nod over Thiago Alves in his final struggle. His album is deceiving as he has fought some really hard competition in his losses, such as former interim champ Colby Covington. Imadaev (8-0) has knocked out all of his opponents thus far about the Russian regional circuit but none of them were notable fighters. Griffin is the biggest battle of Imadaev’s career to date, and while Griffin is a solid fighter, Imadaev is a huge prospect with a shiny record and will likely be preferred here.
Curtis Millender vs. Belal Muhammad, UFC 236
Just a week after being filed by Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, Curtis Millender has signed a contract to fight fellow welterweight Belal Muhammad in UFC 236. The news was broken by farah Hannoun. Millender (17-4) saw a nine-fight win streak snapped with his entry loss to dos Santos but prior to this had won his first three fights from the Octagon. Muhammad (14-3) is 5-3 at the UFC and most recently saw his four-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Geoff Neal. Great fight here between two lasting fighters willing to stand and exchange for the fans, but despite Millender’s recent quick loss I’d still prefer him to win this bout as he is the more dynamic fighter and stronger striker.
