UFC 238 takes place June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois, and the card recently had a number of new spells added to the card. Below are my first ideas on them.
Aljamain Sterling vs. Pedro Munhoz, UFC 238
Leading bantamweight contenders Aljamain Sterling and Pedro Munhoz are set to meet UFC 238. The bout has been first reported by ESPN. Sterling (17-3) is 9-3 at the UFC and is currently riding a three-fight win streak that includes a conclusion win over Jimmie Rivera his out time. Munhoz (18-3, 1 NC) is 8-3, 1 NC and can also be riding a three-fight win streak that contains an incredible KO over Cody Garbrandt in his last bout. Though Sterling has looked great recently and is finally starting to fulfill his potential, Munhoz’ triumph over Garbrandt showed that he is an elite bantamweight from the sport, and he deserves to be the favorite in this fight.
Jimmie Rivera vs. Petr Yan, UFC 238
At the same time, bantamweights Jimmie Rivera and Petr Yan will struggle UFC 238. Rivera (22-3) is an impressive 6-2 overall in the UFC but is coming off of a decision loss to Aljamain Sterling. Yan (12-1) is 4-0 in the UFC and most recently defeated John Dodson by choice. Rivera continues to be a solid bantamweight for many years within the Octagon but with a 1-2 record over his last few fights is beginning to show serious signs of a decrease, whereas Yan looks like he could be a future winner at 135lbs. I would anticipate Yan for a big favorite in this bout.
Ricardo Lamas vs. Calvin Kattar, UFC 238
An intriguing featherweight bout pits Ricardo Lamas against Calvin Kattar. The news of the bout was initially reported by The Chicago Tribune. Lamas (19-7) is 10-5 overall in the UFC and is coming off of a TKO win over Darren Elkins. Kattar (19-3) is currently 3-1 in the UFC and many recently conquered Chris Fishgold by TKO. Lamas was a great, underrated featherweight for several years inside the Octagon, but Kattar has looked amazing in every fight he has had in the UFC save for his decision loss to Renato Moicano. I’d have to slightly favor Kattar to win this fight.
Felice Herrig vs. Xiaonan Yan, UFC 238
Women’s strawweights collide as Felice Herrig is set to shoot on Xiaonan Yan. Herrig (14-8) is a Chicago-area native who is 5-3 overall in the UFC, but she is coming from back-to-back decision losses to Michelle Waterson and Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Yan (10-0, 1 NC) is 3-0 so far in the UFC but her best win is likely over Kailin Curran. Yan is a decent prospect at 115lbs, but I’m not prepared to write off Herrig only yet, and that I would need to prefer her to win this fight.
Tai Tuivasa vs. Blagoy Ivanov, UFC 238
And heavyweights Tai Tuivasa and Blagoy Ivanov will clash at UFC 238. Tuivasa (8-1) is currently 3-1 at the UFC but is coming from a barbarous TKO loss to Junior dos Santos. Ivanov (17-2, 1 NC) is 1-1 in the UFC with a choice loss to JDC along with a decision win over Ben Rothwell. This resembles a coin flip, but according to Tuivasa’s childhood advantage and KO power I’d slightly lean towards him to get the win.
