The first couple bouts are shown for the UFC’s forthcoming cards from Rochester and Greensboro, and I will give my first takes on those matchups below.
Aspen Ladd vs. Sijara Eubanks, UFC Fight Night 151
Moving up from the women’s flyweight division is Sijara Eubanks, and she’ll fight Aspen Ladd at UFC Fight Night 151, occurring May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York. MMAjunkie broke the news. Ladd (7-0) is undefeated in her career and is 2-0 in the UFC with a vicious TKO win over Tonya Evinger in her final outing. Eubanks (4-2) is 2-0 at the UFC and conquer Roxanne Modafferi by choice in her last struggle. This is actually a rematch of the pair’s past bout in Invicta, which Ladd won by decision. I am expecting another competitive fight this second time around, but once again I would have to favor Ladd to win the battle.
Trevin Giles vs. Zak Cummings, UFC Fight Night 151
Additionally added to UFC Fight Night 151 is a middleweight bout between Trevin Giles and Zak Cummings. Giles (11-0) is currently 2-0 at the UFC but hasn’t fought since a KO win over Antonio Braga Neto in December 2017. Cummings (22-6) is 7-3 in the UFC and is coming off of a split decision win over Trevor Smith. Cummings is merely a gatekeeper at this stage of his career while Giles is a top prospect in 185lbs, and he’ll probably be a huge favorite here regardless of his long layoff.
Mike Trizano vs. Grant Dawson, UFC Fight Night 151
Featherweight prospects Mike Trizano and Grant Dawson will fulfill UFC Fight Night 151. The Democrat and Chronicle broke the information. Trizano (8-0) won TUF 27 and is so far 2-0 from the UFC such as an upset win over Luis Pena his last time out. Dawson (13-1) won a decision over Julian Erosa in his UFC debut and is riding a four-fight win series at the moment. Both men are solid prospects but Dawson appears to have more respect at the window and that I expect him to be favored at open.
Pat Cummins vs. Ed Herman, UFC Fight Night 151
Light heavyweights Pat Cummins and Ed Herman are set to match UFC Fight Night 151. Cummins (10-6) is 6-6 in the UFC and is coming from two straight losses to Misha Cirkunov and Corey Anderson. Herman (23-14, 1 NC) is one of the longest tenured UFC fighters and contains an all-time record of 10-11, 1 NC complete from the Octagon. But he has fallen on hard times as of late having a three-fight losing skid including losses to Gian Villante, CB Dollaway and Nikita Krylov. At this point you need to fade Herman from anyone, and Cummins ought to be a small favorite here.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Allen Crowder, UFC Fight Night 153
Heavyweights Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Allen Crowder are set to meet at UFC Fight Night 153, occurring June 22 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Crowder’s team declared the bout. Rozenstruik (7-0) picked up a fantastic knockout win over Junior Albini in his UFC debut. Crowder (10-3, 1 NC) is 1-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a DQ win over Greg Hardy. This resembles the UFC penalizing Crowder for whatever motive since I fully expect Rozenstruik to receive a knockout win.
