The Octagon is headed back to Atlanta, Georgia for UFC 236. The card takes place April 13 at State Farm Arena, and a number of the latest spells added into the card are given below.
Alan Jouban vs. Dwight Grant, UFC 236
Welterweights Alan Jouban and Dwight Grant will meet at UFC 236. Zack Klein of ABC broke the news. Jouban (16-6) is 7-4 in the UFC and many recently defeated Ben Saunders via KO at a 2018″Battle of the Year” candidate. Grant (9-2) showed some Octagon jitters in his UFC debut when he dropped a split decision to Zak Ottow, but he bounced back nicely with a TKO win over Carlo Pedersoli Jr. in his last struggle. Jouban has more experience and on paper is the better boxer, but he is also 37 and has not fought in over a year. This may be the ideal time to fade him and go with Grant, who I am expecting to be the underdog in this one.
Jalin Turner vs. Matt Frevola, UFC 236
A lightweight matchup between Jalin Turner and Matt Frevola can also be place for UFC 236. Turner (8-4) was pumped out by Vicente Luque in his UFC debut but bounced back well with a TKO win over Callan Potter his last time out. Only 23, he seems like a very good potential at 155lbs. Frevola (6-1-1) was knocked out by Marco Polo Reyes in his UFC debut and then fought to a exciting draw opposite Lando Vannata his last time out. Frevola is a whole lot better of a fighter than many give him credit for, but given how impressive Turner looked in his UFC sophomore attempt, you have to go together to win this battle as a major favorite.
Max Griffin vs. Zelim Imadaev, UFC 236 Taking place at UFC 236 is a welterweight bout between Max Griffin and Zelim Imadaev. ESPN broke the information. Griffin (14-6) has a mediocre record of 2-4 in the Octagon, but most believed he should have a split decision nod over Thiago Alves in his last fight. His album is deceiving as he has fought some really hard competition in his losses, including former interim champ Colby Covington. Imadaev (8-0) has knocked out all his opponents to date on the Russian regional circuit but none of them were prominent fighters. Griffin is the biggest battle of Imadaev’s career up to now, and while Griffin is a solid fighter, Imadaev is a huge prospect with a glistening record and will likely be favored here.
Curtis Millender vs. Belal Muhammad, UFC 236
Just a week after being filed by Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, Curtis Millender has signed a contract to fight fellow welterweight Belal Muhammad in UFC 236. Farah Hannoun broke the information. Millender (17-4) saw a nine-fight win streak snapped with his submission loss to dos Santos but before that had won his first three fights in the Octagon. Muhammad (14-3) is 5-3 at the UFC and most recently saw his four-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Geoff Neal. Fantastic fight here between two lasting fighters eager to stand and trade for the fans, but despite Millender’s recent quick loss I’d still favor him to win this bout as he is the dynamic fighter and stronger striker.
