UFC 236 takes place Saturday night in Atlanta, and you’ll be able to watch the five-fight principal card live on ESPN+. The card is ripe with fascinating struggles through the night, however, a majority of fans will likely be most-interested in the event’s closing two conflicts for the interim middleweight and lightweight titles. We have you covered with comprehensive betting analysis on the main and co-main occasion… Max Holloway & Dustin Poirier Rematch for Lightweight Gold Can Kelvin Gastelum Steal Israel Adesanya’s Spotlight? … but that doesn’t mean we can’t find out a thing or two on the night’s additional 11 struggles! What follows is a short breakdown on every matchup in UFC 236 in an effort to learn enough about every fighter to produce a more educated wager on them if your heart desires. UFC 236 Interim Lightweight Title Fight: Max Holloway (-205) vs. Dustin Poirier (+165) Poirier was on a war path since returning to lightweight in April, 2015. In general, he’s won eight of the last 10 battles and suffered just 1 loss (KO to Michael Johnson) and one no competition in his first fight against Eddie Alvarez. Poirier ranks first among busy UFC lightweights in striking differential per second at +2.69. The two Poirier (7.11 strikes per second ) and Holloway (6.9) rank among the top-five highest-volume strikers from the entire UFC. Holloway’s quantity is similar to an avalanche that becomes more-and-more overpowering as the fight continues. Holloway’s last fight was arguably the finest championship functionality in UFC history. Overall, his 290 considerable strikes at a struggle broke the UFC tournament record. Holloway opened the week as a -230 favorite, but action has arrived in greatly on Poirier ever since. Interim Middleweight Title Fight: Kelvin Gastelum (+150) vs. Israel Adesanya (-185) Gastelum managed to record at least one knockdown against former winners Jacare Souza, Michael Bisping, Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort throughout his hellacious run through the middleweight division. His constant barrages of one-two combinations have been hard for practically all his opponents do deal with during his career. Israel’The previous Stylebender’ Adesanya is a former Glory Kickboxing winner who has rung up a 16-0 record to start his own mixed martial arts profession. He will not need anything to do with Gastelum — a country championship wrestler in high school — on the floor, but we have yet to see someone come near out-classing Adesanya around the toes during his five UFC wins. Adesanya started the week as a -175 favored, but has since moved up to -185 behind the public’s support. Light Heavyweight Fight: Eryk Anders (-200) vs. Khalil Rountree (+160) Anders played linebacker under Nick Saban in Alabama from 2006-2009 before beginning his mixed martial arts profession. All three of Anders’ livelihood losses have come in his last four fights, but those were just two split-decision losses along with a single TKO reduction via referee stoppage throughout his short-notice light heavyweight debut against Thiago Santos, who will fight Jon Jones for the division’s championship in July. Rountree recorded the biggest success of his career at UFC 226 against long-time championship kickboxer Gokhan Saki, but was pumped out by increasing contender Johnny Walker last November. Rountree’s career striking differential of -0.99 has made it hard for him to win conflicts by any way aside from a conclusion, and he’s accordingly lost both of his livelihood UFC fights that have made it beyond the first round. Welterweight Fight: Alan Jouban (-120) vs. Dwight Grant (-110) Jouban will be providing up a five-inch reach advantage to Grant. This is uncharted territory for Jouban during his 11-fight UFC career, but he is 3-1 in fights with a reach advantage of at least three inches. Meanwhile, the Grant is 1-1 in the UFC with a success over Carlo Pedersoli Jr. (75-inch reach) plus a split-decision reduction to Zak Ottow (72-inch reach). The x-factor in this struggle might wind up being volume. Jouban finds himself among the top-10 welterweights in UFC history in knockdowns landed (No. 4), significant strike precision (No. 7), strikes landed per second (No. 3) and striking differential (No. 4). Light Heavyweight Fight: Ovince Saint Preux (-110) vs. Nikita Krylov (-120) Krylov has literally never had a struggle go to the judges in 30 career MMA fights. Including 10 fights within the Octagon, that have showcased three wins by TKO/KO and three by submission in contrast to three declines by submission as well as one by TKO. This is in fact a rematch from UFC 171, when OSP defeated Krylov by first-round submission. The finish comprised Saint Preux’s signature entry: The Von Flue choke. UFC 236 Prelims Lightweight Fight: Jalin Turner (-140) vs. Matt Frevola (+110) Turner boasts enormous height (6-foot-3 vs. 5-foot-9) and attain (77 inches vs. 71) advantages over Frevola, although that edge could be mitigated when the latter fighter is able to instigate his takedown-heavy attack. Turner was last observed starching Callan Potter in just 53 seconds back at UFC 234 in February. Flyweight Fight: Wilson Reis (+130) vs. Alexandre Pantoja (-160) Reis is presently the UFC’s No. 4 ranked flyweight before his bout with fifth-ranked Alexandre Pantoja. Although Reis has lost three of his past four fights, they have come against a high-level competitors such as John Moraga, current flyweight champion Henry Cejudo and former champion Demetrious Johnson. Both Reis (12:08) and Pantoja (11:58) have typical fight times that could indicate we will see this fight last to the next round. Welterweight Fight: Max Griffin (-105) vs. Zelim Imadaev (-125) Imadaev opened the week with -115 chances. Public assistance has come in on the undefeated Russian, who has won all eight of his struggles by TKO or KO. He’s making his debut within the octagon against Max Griffin, who has lost four of his last six fights dating back to August, 2016. There’s a bit of bad blood here, as Griffin sparred with Imadaev once upon a time and had this to say about his competitor… “He is an ass, guy. He’s not a good man… I don’t like the man… I am looking forward to showing him what it’s like.” Bantamweight Fight: Boston Salmon (-150) vs. Khalid Taha (+120) Boston’Boom Boom’ Salmon has only lost once in seven seven career conflicts (by split-decision). Salmon won his last fight against Ricky Turcios about the debut episode of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. He’ll maintain a four-inch height benefit of Taha, who has dropped two of his last 3 fights. Backing Salmon in his early -135 chances was one of my favourite bets on the card, but he still offers a little bit of value at his current -150 chances. >> Sign up for Your Action Network’s daily newsletter to find the smartest conversation delivered into your inbox each morning. UFC 236 Early Prelims Welterweight Fight: Curtis Millender (+115) vs. Belal Muhammad (-145) Millender fought only last month in UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. dos Santos, ultimately losing by entry (rear-naked choke) into Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos. Muhammad continues to be active, as he endured a unanimous decision loss to Geoff Neal back in January in UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw. Millender boasts four and three inch height and reach advantages, respectively, though Muhammad continues to be a lot more of a takedown threat throughout his UFC career. Bantamweight Fight: Montel Jackson (-550) vs. Andre Soukhamthath (+375) Jackson started the week as a -500 favored, but has since moved higher. He is the biggest favorite on the card. Soukhamthath is 13-6 as a skilled and is being fed to Jackson, who has dropped only once in eight career bouts. Girls Strawweight Fight: Lauren Mueller (+145) vs. Poliana Botelho (-175) Both of these girls have high striking rates and don’t waste their time getting started. This is particularly true for Botelho, who notched the third-fastest finish in the history of this UFC women’s division back in May, 2018. Bantamweight Fight: Brandon Davis (-170) vs. Randy Costa (+140) Costa is undefeated in four professional fights, while Davis is just 9-5. Both fighters are making a debut of sorts, as Costa will probably be within the octagon for the first time in his career, while Davis has seemingly never fought at 135 lbs.
