UFC OTTAWA ANNOUNCED WITH SEVERAL BOUTS INCLUDING DEREK BRUNSON VS. ELIAS THEODOROU

This week, UFC Fight Night 150 was officially announced and the occasion will take place May 4 at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to announcing that the card, a number of bouts have been revealed, and here they are under along with my first thoughts on these.
Derek Brunson vs. Elias Theodorou, UFC Fight Night 150
The most crucial fight announced for this particular card thus far is a middleweight bout between top-15 fighters Derek Brunson and Elias Theodorou. Brunson (18-7) is 9-5 from the UFC and is coming from back-to-back KO losses to Israel Adesanya and Ronaldo”Jacare” Souza. Theodorou (16-2) is 8-2 at the UFC and has won his last few fights such as a determination win over Eryk Anders in his final outing. Brunson has the power and wrestling however Theodorou has the chin and cardio. Difficult one to call but I would have to favor Theodorou at this stage.
Arjan Bhullar vs. Juan Adams, UFC Fight Night 150
A pleasure heavyweight bout sees Arjan Bhullar take on Juan Adams. Bhullar (8-1) is 2-1 in the UFC and won a decision over Marcelo Golm his last fight. Adams (5-0) has won all five of his pro fights by TKO such as a knockout over Chris de la Rocha in his UFC debut. Though Bhullar has strong wrestling, I believe Adams is a top notch prospect and could make him a big favorite here.
Sarah Moras vs. Leah Letson, UFC Fight Night 150
Women’s bantamweight Sarah Moras will take on Leah Letson. Moras (5-4) is 2-3 in the UFC and has lost her last two conflicts. Letson (5-1) is really on a five-fight win series including a success in her UFC debut. Moras is fade cloth and that I would greatly favor Letson to get the win .
Brad Katona vs. Merab Dvalishvili, UFC Fight Night 150
Bantamweight prospect Brad Katona will find a step up when he chooses on Merab Dvalishvili. Katona (8-0) is 2-0 at the UFC and only mastered Matthew Lopez in his final fight after winning TUF. Dvalishvili (8-4) is currently 1-2 at the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Terrion Ware in his final fight. Katona is a great prospect and Dvalishvili is an excellent test for him at this stage of his career. It’s a hard one to call but given the reality Katona remains undefeated, and of course Canadian, I think you have to favor him here.
Mitch Gagnon vs. Brian Kelleher, UFC Fight Night 150
Bantamweights in dire need of wins will fulfill as Mitch Gagnon takes on Brian Kelleher. Gagnon (12-4) is 4-3 at the UFC and is coming from consecutive losses. Kelleher (19-10) is 3-3 at the UFC and has also lost his last 2 fights. Both men are fade material but given Gagnon’s extended layoff you would need to slightly favor Kelleher in this .
Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Andrew Sanchez, UFC Fight Night 150
Former TKO middleweight champion Marc-Andre Barriault will take on Andrew Sanchez in his UFC debut. Barriault (11-1) is coming from eight wins in a row in TKO and is one of Canada’s greatest MMA prospects. Sanchez (10-4) is 3-2 at the UFC and conquered Markus Perez by decision in his last fight. Sanchez is a good fighter but I believe Barriault is going to be very good and I would definitely favor him for the win here in the capital of Canada.
Aiemann Zahabi vs. Vince Morales, UFC Fight Night 150
And lastly, bantamweights Aiemann Zahabi and Vince Morales will fight. Zahabi (7-1) is 1-1 at the UFC and dropped to Ricardo Ramos via KO in his last fight. Morales (8-3) lost his UFC introduction to Yadong Song. This one could go either but I’d favor Zahabi just due to the fact he will be fighting so near home.
