UFC Prague (UFC Fight Night 145) is set to take place February 23 in The O2 Arena at the capital city of the Czech Republic. The principal event of the card is a light heavyweight bout between Thiago Santos and Jan Blachowicz, and now the UFC is starting to fill the card out by announcing all the preliminary bouts. Four brand new prelims have been shown for the card (in addition to people mention in previous posts here), and here are my thoughts on the new bouts in the current MMA odds and ends.
Veronica Macedo vs. Gillian Robertson, UFC Fight Night 145
The very first new bout of mention is that a women’s flyweight matchup between Veronica Macedo and Gillian Robertson. Nolan King of FloCombat broke the brand new. Macedo (5-2-1) is 0-2 in the UFC but put up a spirited effort in a decision loss to Andrea Lee that won her a share of”Battle of the evening ” Robertson (5-3) is 2-1 in the UFC, with all her fights ending in submission win or lose. Both women are in desperate need of a victory, and this battle could go either way. I’d slightly lean towards Robertson since she’s fought a higher level of competition, but it’s close.
Carlo Pedersoli Jr. vs. Dwight Grant, UFC Fight Night 145
Then We’ve Got a welterweight bout between Carlo Pedersoli Jr. and Dwight Grant. Sherdog broke the news. Pedersoli Jr. (11-2) started his UFC career with a split decision win over Brad Scott but endured a quick KO loss to Alex Oliveira his last time out. Grant (8-2) is coming off of a split decision loss to Zak Ottow in his last fight. Both men have a whole lot to prove but I believe Pedersoli Jr. is a much better fighter based on what we’ve seen in the UFC and Cage Warriors plus I’d prefer him here.
Magomed Ankalaev vs. Klidson Farias de Abreu, UFC Fight Night 145
Following a few other competitions fell through, Magomed Ankalaev will return to the Octagon against UFC newcomer Klidson Farias de Abreu. Ankalaev (9-1) endured a catastrophic entry reduction to Paul Craig in his UFC debut but bounced back well with a TKO win over Marcin Prachnio in his last struggle. Abreu (14-2) is riding a six-fight win streak into this contest and 16 of his wins have ended within the space. I wouldn’t feel comfortable putting enormous juice Ankalaev after what occurred in the Craig struggle, but on paper he must have the benefit in this one. With that said, if Abreu is a massive underdog such as Craig was, maybe he could be worth taking a flier on.
Damir Ismagulov vs. Joel Alvarez, UFC Fight Night 145
And finally added to the card is a welterweight bout between Damir Ismagulov and Joel Alvarez. MMADNA broke the information. Ismagulov (17-2) is riding a 12-fight win series and won a decision over Alex Gorgees in his UFC debut. Alvarez (15-1) is a veteran of the Spanish regional scene, and it has finished all 15 of the professional victories. Alvarez resembles a good prospect but Ismagulov is on a whole other level and I would peg him as a big favorite to win this fight.
