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 given 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 last fight. Jouban has more expertise and on newspaper is the better boxer, but he is also 37 and has not fought in over a year. This may be the right time to fade him and proceed with Grant, who I am expecting 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 nicely with a TKO win over Callan Potter his last time out. Just 23, he looks like a very solid prospect at 155lbs. Frevola (6-1-1) was pumped 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 most 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 major 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) includes a mediocre record of 2-4 from the Octagon, but believed he should have a split decision nod over Thiago Alves in his final fight. His record 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 all of his opponents to date about the Russian regional circuit but not one of them were notable fighters. Griffin is the biggest battle of Imadaev’s career to date, and while Griffin is a solid fighter, Imadaev is a tremendous prospect with a glistening record and will likely be preferred here.
Curtis Millender vs. Belal Muhammad, UFC 236
Only a week after being submitted by Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, Curtis Millender has signed a contract to fight fellow welterweight Belal Muhammad in UFC 236. Farah Hannoun broke the news. Millender (17-4) watched a nine-fight win streak snapped with his entry loss to dos Santos but before this 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 willing to stand and trade for the lovers, however despite Millender’s recent rapid loss I would still prefer him to win this bout as he is the dynamic fighter and stronger striker.
