The Octagon’s return to Sweden is starting to shape up. UFC Fight Night 152 occurs June 1 in Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, along with the subsequent four bouts are added to the card that is expected to be headlined by Alexander Gustafsson vs. Anthony Smith.
Volkan Oezdemir vs. Ilir Latifi, UFC Fight Night 152
An exciting light heavyweight bout between Volkan Oezdemir and Ilir Latifi is the most notable of the new bouts added to UFC Fight Night 152. ESPN’s Brett Okamoto broke the news. Oezdemir (15-4) is 3-3 at the UFC but is now mired in a three-fight losing skid including a split decision loss to Dominick Reyes in UFC London just over a week back. Certainly, he wants to get back in there and put that close loss behind him. Latifi (14-6, 1 NC) is 7-4 in the UFC and most recently dropped a decision to Corey Anderson. Both men are just below the elite level of the greatest light heavyweights but tend to be better than gatekeepers, which makes this a close one to call. Despite his losing skid I slightly lean towards Oezdemir, but Latifi combating at home in Sweden could be the difference in this fight and that I anticipate a very close gaming lineup.
Jimi Manuwa vs. Aleksandar Rakic, UFC Fight Night 152
Another exciting light heavyweight bout will see Jimi Manuwa take on Aleksandar Rakic. Manuwa (17-5) is 6-5 from the UFC and is currently riding a three-fight losing skid. He was one of the most dangerous light heavyweights in the world at one time, but the game appears to have passed by and at age 39 he seems to be on the downside of his career, even though he could still surprise with a barbarous knockout. Rakic (11-1) is 3-0 at the UFC and is coming from a massive knockout win over Devin Clark. Only 27, Rakic seems just like a force at 205lbs for a long time ahead, and I’d expect hm to be a big favorite to win this particular fight.
Makwan Amirkhani vs. Chris Fishgold, UFC Fight Night 152
Featherweights Makwan Amirkhani and Chris Fishgold are set to clash, and the UFC has made the bout official. Amirkhani (14-3) is 4-1 overall at the Octagon and is coming off of a split decision win over Jason Knight. At one point in time he looked like a future featherweight contender, but accidents and lengthy layoffs have halted his career. Fishgold (18-2, 1 NC) was finished by Calvin Kattar in his UFC debut but rebounded with a submission win over Daniel Teymur his last time out. I anticipate Amirkhani to be preferred because he’s a popular fighter, however I provide Fishgold a fantastic chance of winning this bout.
Nick Hein vs. Luigi Vendramini, UFC Fight Night 152
Nick Hein takes on Luigi Vendramini in a lightweight bout. Combate broke the news. Hein (14-4, 1 NC) is 4-3 overall from the UFC but has dropped back-to-back fights to Damir Hadzovic and Davi Ramos. Vendramini (8-1) was undefeated with all of his wins coming from stoppage before getting knocked out by leading rival Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos in his UFC debut. Moving down a weight class and getting a full camp ought to be valuable to Vendramini, that should be a slight favorite here.
Bea Malecki vs. Duda Santana, UFC Fight Night 152
And finally, women’s featherweights Bea Malecki and Duda Santana meet. Malecki (2-0) is a Sweden indigenous who seemed on TUF but didn’t fare well on the show as she lost. Santana (3-0) has won three of her ace bouts but hasn’t fought since 2017. Flip a coin for this one as both women have loads of question marks .
