UFC Fight Night Uruguay: Shevchenko vs Carmouche II
At Montevideo, Uruguay for UFC Fight Night, the Octagon will be Put up for the Very first time in UFC history: Shevchenko vs Carmouche II.
The womens flyweight belt is going to be on the line with the champion, ValentinaBullet Shevchenko, being the heavy -1000 favorite and??the challenger, LizGirl-rilla Carmouche, coming back in +600. Ive got a pick the fights on the main card for each and a breakdown.
Shevchenko (-1000) is producing her second name defense and is aiming to pick up a fourth consecutive win total. Bullet dropped down from bantamweight once the flyweight division opened up and has assembled a three-fight winning series, including beating Joanna Jedrzejczyk to win the belt and then protecting it against Jessica Eye in UFC 238 in June.
The 31-year-old has a great fight IQ and also does a really terrific job. Shevchenko yells strong kicks that she fires very quickly and correctly, while projecting solid punches that are straight also. In addition, if she really does feel any tension in the striking game, shes got the skills to bring the fight into the floor because she averages 2.2 takedowns a 15 minutes.
Carmouche (+600) is looking for her initial three-fight winning streak since she won the first six conflicts of her pro career. Girl-rilla continues into the judges scorecards in each of her last seven conflicts, with the just two endings in the Octagon coming from her first two conflicts, a submission loss to Ronda Rousey along with a knockout win over present strawweight champion??Jessica Andrade.
The California native is a fighter, feinting in searching for her opportunities to shoot in and make a takedown or a clinch and constantly bouncing around on the exterior. She averages 2.95 takedowns per 15 minutes and strikes 55 per cent of her efforts, making a number of takedowns in every one of her last six fights. On her feet, Carmouche includes a quick jab??but does not throw a lot of strikes, but instead racking??her attack total via pound and ground up.
Shevchenko has lost to just two girls in her career, Amanda Nunes (double ) and Liz Carmouche back in 2010. That loss to Girl-rilla was her sole weight loss loss since she moved into the judges scorecards equally instances vs Nunes. I believe Bullet shouts and will have a huge advantage on the toes with her terrific counters. She hires 73% of takedown efforts, where Carmouche will need the??struggle to proceed. I really do think theres value on Carmouche in her number but I do not believe she wins the rematch.
Luque (-225) attempts to drive his winning streak to six, using the??preceding five wins being??finishes. Overall,The Silent Assassin is 9-2 at the UFC with all of his wins being ends along with his two losses coming through conclusion. The Brazil native has two thirds successes this past year. The first had been an epic warfare with Bryan Barberena and the next was a finish of Derrick Krantz in May.
Luque has fantastic accuracy and sets his striking up nicely with mixes rather than throwing one strike at a moment. Hes got enormous power behind his strikes since hes knocked out his last four competitions. Additionally, he does a good job shifting stances and keeping his hands to avoid damage coming back the other way. Because he slowed down a great deal in his warfare conditioning may be a little bit of a problem, though.
Perry (+175) seems to collect back-to-back victories for the first time because he conquer Jake Ellenberger and Alex Reyes in 2017. Ever since that time,Platinum has gone 2-3 with his two victories coming by decision over Paul Felder and, most recently, Alex Oliveira in April.
The 27-year-old is a lasting and hard-nosed brawler who proceeds to improve. Platinum refuses to have a step backward, even getting in the face of his rival at a phone booth-style fight and takes the middle of the Octagon. Defensively, he doesnt always keep his hands high and doesnt have a lot of head motion, that has led to him swallowing 4.27 strikes per minute.
This has Battle of the Night. I presume that Luque is the striker offensively and defensively despite being in some wild brawls, but Perry has never been knocked out. The more the fight goes, the more the momentum swings in favor of Platinum as the Silent Assassin did slow in his warfare with Barberena, although he did hand Barberena his first career knockout reduction because bout.
Garagorri (-135) is set to make his UFC debut and in doing so??lays his perfect record on the line. The Uruguay native has completed his last five fights, all in the first round, four each by submission and you by knockout. Overall, he has finished nine of the 11 winsfour by knockout and five through entry.
The 30-year-old is a competitive fighter who storms in the clinch with nasty knees and crazy strikes in his rival. He makes great notes, swaying out sending out a barrage of his own. He is dangerous on the ground, with five admissions including four in his last five victories, to his name.
Bandenay (+105) seems to get back into the win column and set an end to his two-fight losing skid. The Peru native has been signed with the UFC when he was to get a five-fight winning series, all which were endings, but hes a 1-2 record in the Octagon, getting knocked out by a hit vs Gabriel Benitez and dropping by a three-round conclusion vs Austin Arnett his very final time out in November.
Bandenay employs a great deal of kicks to put up his offensive strategy, slowly moving forward until he to unleash a flurry of strikes. He tends not to keep his hands high to protect against attacks coming back when backing up defense and that he also stands a after early offensive storms. Lastly, he throws his hand to get a jab??but rather just rips or overextending hands.
Garagorri is a fighter who is very individual setting up his shots, but when he participates, he yells combinations with a great deal of power. Itll be intriguing to see the way he manages the long kicks and the UFCs huge lights of Bandenay.
Oezdemir (N/A) aims to put a stop to his own career-worst??three-fight losing slide and then gather his first victory since July??2017. No Time shot the light heavyweight rankings with three consecutive wins in his first three fights, two of which were first-round knockouts that needed just 1:10 combined to complete. However, he has dropped three in a row into Anthony Smith, Daniel Cormier and Dominick Reyes.
The Switzerland indigenous is an fighter at the first round, always stalking place his foe and his competitor seeking to land his heavy hands. Oezdemir doesnt just set up his strikes that nicely but instead throws lunging pins to shut the distance, where he could work in the clinch with strikes or bring??the struggle to the ground. The biggest knock Oezdemir is that he melts the afterwards the more the fight moves or the round moves, but his elimination looked better in his final appearance from Reyes.
Latifi (N/A) attempts to avoid his first-ever losing slide as hes coming off a three-round unanimous-decision defeat to Corey Anderson last December. The Sledgehammer contains six losses in his career but has never had back-to-back defeats. On a two-fight winning series on Ovince Saint Preux and Tyson Pedro, Latifi was prior to his latest reduction.
The Sweden native is a counter-striker, making sense since??hes short for the branch, and utilizes his opponent pressure to aid the space closes. He doesnt have a very significant output, remaining on the surface, and he prefers to dictate where the battle occurs, averaging 1.89 takedowns a 15 minutes and not??ever being??removed in the Octagon.
The pace could slow afterward, although there might be fireworks at the opening round of the bout. The two Oezdemir and Latifi tend to throw looping hooks which have a whole lot of power . However, the Sledgehammer tends to become patient and waits for his foe??to press ahead, while no Timing enjoys to be the aggressor. The Switzerland native has punches and that I think he has more energy, which could be the difference-maker.
Vieira (-185) creates his Octagon introduction and looks to stay undefeated. The Black Belt Hunter brings with him a perfect 5-0 record, including four??submission successes and a knockout. one of his five conflicts has??gone beyond the first round and that was back at the second fight of his profession in 2017.
The Brazil native gives him chances and has quite excellent footwork which enables him to stay out of risk of the strikes of the opponent. Vieiras striking isnt really something to be worried as he throws long jabs and leg kicks to make it look like hes working, but his primary objective is pulling the fight to the ground and hes terrific level changes and power to achieve that objective.
Piechota (+150) returns to the Octagon for the very first time since suffering his first career loss last July. Imadlo needed a perfect 11-0-1 list before falling via second-round submission to Gerald Meerschaert at the Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale. The Poland native has finished 10 of his 11 victories by knockout and five by submission.
The 29-year-old has good footwork and head motion since he bounces around slowly stalking. He does often second-guess himself sometimes in striking, locating an opportunity to land but withdrawing back. He has great accuracy and power when he can throw. Additionally, if the battle hits on the floor, hes quite aggressive in seeking a submission, however, his lone loss arrived in that manner.
Neither fighter pulls the trigger that aggressively on the toes waiting to obtain the perfect chance to land the major attack. Big time slowed down in his fight and was dragged to the floor three times and ultimately finished in the next round. When he has a hard time it may be a short evening for your Poland native.
Barzola (-200) looks to get back on track after getting his four-fight winning streak snapped his final time from March. The last seven fights thatEl Fuerte was in have gone into the judges scorecards –??five that he won along with two that he dropped, such as his final relationship with Kevin Aguilar. An ending hasnt been earned by the Peru native since 2014 before he joined the UFC.
Barzola has the capability and footwork with excellent speed. He uses these abilities to maintain his competitor off-balance so he could get an opportunity to take and bring the battle to the ground, since he averages 5.29 takedowns per 15 minutes. El Fuerte has gained takedowns in all five of his wins inside the Octagon. Nonetheless, in his two reductions, he had a combined one takedown, not locating a bunch of succeeding on the toes.
Moffett (+160) aims to rebound from his first reduction in the UFC his last time out in March. The Wolfman made a UFC contract along with his second-round submission victory over Jacob Kilburn in Dana Whites Tuesday Night Contender Series past August. He followed that up with another second-round submission win vs Chas Skelly but??dropped by unanimous conclusion in March to Bryce Mitchell.
The Illinois native is a smothering fighter, closing the distance. That said, his bread and butter is in wars on the feet, not at exchanges. He secured six takedowns during his first two fights in the UFC, shooting Mitchell down five days without even having the ability to secure a entry although making a submission success in the initial one.
This fight will be a battle between two wrestlers and Moffett has the edge in the entry match. Barzola will be much faster on the toes and might keep the battle position and only select Moffett aside from afar however the Wolfman has the power edge, which makes for a very interesting battle.
