NEW UFC PPV BOUTS INCLUDE DIEGO SANCHEZ VS. MICHAEL CHIESA

The UFC has announced a number of new bouts throughout the last few weeks because of its upcoming pay-per-view cards that summer. Below are my thoughts on those new matchups.
Talita Bernardo vs. Melissa Gatto, UFC 237
Because of an injury to Jessica Rose Clark, Talita Bernardo will meet UFC newcomer Melissa Gatto in a women’s bantamweight bout at UFC 237, taking place May 11 in Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Bernardo (6-3) is 1-2 in the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Sarah Moras. Gatto (6-0-2) is undefeated in her MMA career fighting on the Brazilian regional scene. Bernardo hasn’t looked great in the UFC and considering Gatto is just 22-years-old she’s definitely someone to keep your eye on when the chances for this battle come out. If she is the underdog she is worth a punt.
Karolina Kowalkiewicz vs. Alexa Grasso, UFC 238
A women’s strawweight bout between Karolina Kowalkiewicz and also Alexa Grasso is set for UFC 238, which takes place June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The card features five women’s bouts in complete, including this fight.
Kowalkiewicz (12-4) is just 5-4 at the UFC and is coming from back-to-back losses to Jessica Andrade and Michelle Waterson. She is making a quick return to the Octagon as the fight against Waterson took place just a couple of weeks before, and she’s likely in a must-win situation in this struggle against Grasso at UFC 238. Grasso (10-2) is 2-2 at the UFC but hasn’t fought since last May when she was filed by Tatiana Suarez. The two Kowalkiewicz and Grasso have been solid-yet-flawed fighters, but depending on her expertise I’d guess Kowalkiewicz would be a slight favorite in the open.
Diego Sanchez vs. Michael Chiesa, UFC 239
Welterweights Diego Sanchez and Michael Chiesa are scheduled to fight at UFC 239, taking place July 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Sanchez (29-11) is 18-11 all-time inside the Octagon and is one of those longest-tenured fighters on the UFC roster and a future Hall of Famer. He proceeded to welterweight last year and has since gone 1-2 with a weight loss loss to Matt Brown followed by back-to-back wins over Craig White and Mickey Gall, who he only finished in devastating fashion. Chiesa (15-4) is 8-4 at the UFC and submitted Carlos Condit in his welterweight debut in his last bout. Both Sanchez and Chiesa looked amazing in their past fights, but provided that Sanchez is 37 and has taken a ton of harm throughout his career, you have to lean towards Chiesa here.
Edmen Shahbazyan vs. Jack Marshman, UFC 239
Middleweight prospect Edmen Shahbazyan returns at UFC 239 when he takes on Jack Marshman.
Shahbazyan (9-0) is just 21-years-old and is already 2-0 at the UFC with a knockout win over Charles Byrd and also a split decision win over Darren Stewart. He is one of the top young prospects in 185lbs and all but one of his career successes has come by knockout. Marshman (23-8) is 3-3 in the UFC and is coming from a controversial split decision win over John Phillips. Although Marshman is a solid gateekeeper at 185lbs, Shahbazyan is the future of the division, and he will undoubtedly be a huge favorite heading into the particular bout.
