Two or three exciting welterweight bouts were revealed for upcoming March struggle cards, and I’ll give my initial thoughts on those brand new matchups in the current MMA odds and ends.
Curtis Millender vs. Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos Surging welterweights Curtis Millender and Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos will meet UFC Fight Night 146, which takes place March 9 in Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Globo revealed the news first. This is an important welterweight fight between two fighters on hot streaks that should bump the victor up into the top-10 in the world at 170lbs.
Millender (17-3) is a perfect 3-0 so much in the UFC, and then he went 4-0 entire in 2018 including his time in LFA. He started his UFC debut with a bang when he knocked out Thiago Alves, then followed it up with conclusion wins Max Griffin and Siyar Bahadurzada. In general, Millender has won eight straight fights and many believe he has the potential be a future champion due to his size for the welterweight divison and his elite striking technique. Dos Santos (20-5) has gone 6-1 in the UFC and has not lost within the Octagon because a split decision defeat to Nicholas Dalby in his introduction. His last two conflicts were amazing as he showed his amazing knockout power with brutal wins over Sean Strickland and Luigi Vendramini. He has already broken into the top-15 positions and may jump into the top-10 if he defeats Millender. This is a good, competitive fight on paper that I could see either man. I honestly think it’s about as near as even of a fight because you can get, and I’m hoping a Pick’em line in the sportsbooks.
Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson vs. Anthony Pettis, UFC Fight Night Nashville
Former UFC lightweight winner Anthony Pettis has decided to make the move up to welterweight, and he’ll make his debut in his new weight class against top contender Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson in what is an intriguing battle between elite strikers. The set will match in a UFC Fight Night card that has not yet been declared yet on March 23 at Nashville, Tennessee, according to a report from ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. The scribe reports that the bout has been agreed to, and it should be officially announced by the UFC . Thompson (14-3-1) is 9-3-1 in the UFC and in his last outing lost a very controversial choice to Darren Till. He is only 1-2-1 in his past four fights, but it’s difficult to say he is on a decrease when two of these non-victories came from UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, and his win over Jorge Masvidal revealed he is still a top fighter in 170lbs. Pettis (21-8) is 8-7 overall at the UFC and in his final fight was TKOed by Tony Ferguson in a 2018″Fight of the Year” contender. All of Pettis’ previous bouts came at featherweight and lightweight so that this move to welterweight is intriguing. Having said that, I don’t believe I could pick Pettis here just based on all the damage he’s taken as of late and the fact Thompson is a natural welterweight. Start looking for Thompson to open as a favorite that is solid here.
