The Octagon is headed back for UFC 236 to Atlanta, Georgia. The card takes place April 13 in State Farm Arena, and a number of the newest spells added into the card are given below.
Alan Jouban vs. Dwight Grant, UFC 236
Welterweights Alan Jouban and Dwight Grant will meet UFC 236. Zack Klein of ABC broke the information. Jouban (16-6) is 7-4 in the UFC and most recently defeated Ben Saunders via KO in a 2018″Fight 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 well with a TKO win over Carlo Pedersoli Jr. in his last struggle. Jouban has more expertise and on paper would be the better boxer, but he is also 37 and hasn’t fought in over a year. This might be the right time to fade him and go with Grant, who I’m hoping 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 out time. 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 an exciting draw contrary Lando Vannata his last time out. Frevola is a whole lot better of a fighter than most give him credit for, but given how impressive Turner appeared in his UFC sophomore effort, you have to go together to win this battle as a big favorite.
Max Griffin vs. Zelim Imadaev, UFC 236 Occurring at UFC 236 is a welterweight bout between Max Griffin and Zelim Imadaev. ESPN broke the news. Griffin (14-6) has a fair record of 2-4 in the Octagon, but most believed he should’ve got a split decision nod over Thiago Alves in his final struggle. His album is deceiving as he has fought some really tough competition in his losses, including former interim champ Colby Covington. Imadaev (8-0) has knocked out all of his opponents to date on the Russian regional circuit but not one of them were notable 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 shiny record and will probably be preferred here.
Curtis Millender vs. Belal Muhammad, UFC 236
Only 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. The news broke. Millender (17-4) watched a nine-fight win streak snapped by his entry loss to dos Santos but prior to that had won his first three fights in the Octagon. Muhammad (14-3) is 5-3 in the UFC and most recently saw his four-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Geoff Neal. Fantastic battle here between two lasting fighters eager to stand and exchange for the lovers, but despite Millender’s recent rapid loss I would still favor him to win this bout as he’s the more dynamic fighter and more powerful striker.
