The Octagon is led back for UFC 236 to Atlanta, Georgia. The card takes place April 13 in State Farm Arena, and some of the newest bouts added to the card are listed below.
Alan Jouban vs. Dwight Grant, UFC 236
Welterweights Alan Jouban and Dwight Grant will meet UFC 236. Zack Klein of all ABC broke the news. Jouban (16-6) is 7-4 in the UFC and most recently conquered Ben Saunders via KO at a 2018″Fight of the Year“ candidate. Grant (9-2) revealed 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 final fight. Jouban has more expertise and on newspaper is the better boxer, but he’s also 37 and hasn’t fought in over a year. This may 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 involving 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. Just 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 lot better of a fighter than many give him credit for, but given how amazing Turner looked in his UFC sophomore effort, you need to go together to acquire this fight as a big favorite.
UFC 236 vs. Zelim Imadaev, max Griffin Occurring at UFC 236 is a welterweight bout between Max Griffin and Zelim Imadaev. ESPN broke the information. Griffin (14-6) includes a fair record of 2-4 in the Octagon, but believed he should’ve got a split decision nod over Thiago Alves in his last struggle. His album is deceiving as he has fought some really tough competition in his losses, such as former interim champ Colby Covington. Imadaev (8-0) has knocked out each of his opponents to date on the Russian regional circuit but none 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 tremendous prospect with a shiny record and will probably 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 at UFC 236. The news was broken by farah Hannoun. Millender (17-4) watched a nine-fight win streak snapped by his submission loss to dos Santos but before this had won his first three fights from the Octagon. Muhammad (14-3) is 5-3 in the UFC and many recently saw his four-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Geoff Neal. Great battle here between two durable fighters eager to stand and exchange for the fans, however despite Millender’s recent quick loss I would still prefer him to win this bout as he is the dynamic fighter and more powerful striker.
