NEW SLATE OF UFC BOUTS REVEALED INCLUDING DEMIAN MAIA VS. ANTHONY ROCCO MARTIN

A number of quality bouts are shown for upcoming UFC cards, and my thoughts on them are under.
Demian Maia vs. Anthony Rocco Martin, UFC on ESPN 3
Standout welterweights Demian Maia and Anthony Rocco Martin will fight at UFC on ESPN 3, taking place June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Combate broke the news. Maia (26-9) is 20-9 in the UFC and is coming off of a submission win over Lyman Good. Martin (16-4) is 8-4 in the UFC and has won all four of his fights since moving up to welterweight. Martin is a fantastic fighter and may very well win this battle, but according to Maia’s level of experience and the quality of his resistance over the years that he deserves to be the betting favorite here.
Paul Craig vs. Alonzo Menifield, UFC on ESPN 3
An intriguing light heavyweight bout between Paul Craig and Alonzo Menifield match at UFC on ESPN 3. Craig (11-3) is 3-3 in the UFC and is coming off of a miracle submission win over Kennedy Nzechukwu. Menifield (8-0) is undefeated as a pro with all of his wins coming from stoppage, such as a brutal KO over Vinicius Moreira in his UFC debut. You can never fully count Craig out as he has proven he can come back and win late in the struggle by submission, but on paper Menifield is the better athlete and he should be a massive favorite here.
Marlon Vera vs. Sean O’Malley, UFC 239
An exciting bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and Sean O’Malley is scheduled for UFC 239, taking place June 6 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. ESPN’s Ariel Helwani broke the news. Vera (13-5-1) is 7-4 at the UFC and is coming from three straight endings over Frankie Saenz, Guido Cannetti and Wuliji Buren. O’Malley (10-0) is 2-0 in the UFC but has not competed in more than a year because of a USADA suspension. O’Malley is a huge young prospect but Vera is battling a high level at the moment and deserves to be the favorite here.
Cezar Ferreira vs. Martin Vettori, UFC Fight Night 155
Middleweights Cezar Ferreira and Marvin Vettori are put to battle at UFC Fight Night 155, occurring July 13 at an unannounced place in Sacramento, California. Combate broke the news. Ferreira (13-7) is 9-5 in the UFC and is coming from an upset decision reduction to Ian Heinisch. Vettori (12-4-1) has not fought in over a year because of some USADA suspension and in his last fight dropped a split decision to Israel Adesanya. That is a close fight but given how close Vettori was to beating Adesanya, even with the long layoff I’d prefer him slightly to get the win here over the aging and chinny Ferreira.
Beneil Dariush vs. Drakkar Klose, UFC on ESPN 3
Lightweights Beneil Dariush and Drakkar Klose may also fulfill at UFC Fight Night 155. Dariush (16-4-1) is 10-4-1 in the UFC and is coming from back-to-back wins over Drew Dober and Thiago Moises. Klose (10-1-1) is currently 4-1 at the UFC and is coming off of successive wins over Bobby Green and Lando Vannata. This really is an excellent matchup but I’d actually favor Klose because stylistically it is a great battle for him as he ought to be able to keep it standing and also win the striking battle.
