The UFC recently declared its return to Sacramento, California, set for July 13 at Golden 1 Center. Quite a few new bouts are added into the card, and my initial thoughts on these are under.
Nicco Montano vs. Sara McMann, UFC Fight Night 155
Former UFC women’s flyweight champion Nicco Montano will go back to the Octagon as she moves up into the bantamweight division when she takes on Sara McMann. Montano (4-2) won TUF 26 with a decision win over Roxanne Modafferi back in December 2017 but has not competed since then as a result of a USADA violation and many problems making weight. She conducted through the contest on TUF, but so far hasn’t done anything in the UFC. Maybe moving up in weight will help her out, but it is difficult to say at this point. McMann (11-5) 5-5 general from the UFC and has not won a fight since a 2017 entry win over Gina Mazany. Ever since that time she has dropped back-to-back submission defeats to Ketlen Vieira and Marion Reneau and resembles a shell of her former self. This is fantastic matchmaking here and an intriguing style matchup, but with bettors surely seeking to fade McMann I’d anticipate Montano to be a slight favorite in this one.
Ryan Hall vs. Darren Elkins, UFC 155
Featherweights Ryan Hall and Darren Elkins are place to battle. Hall (7-1) won TUF 22 and has since gone 3-0 in the UFC with wins over Artem Lobov, Gray Maynard, also in his last outing, a gorgeous heel hook entry win over BJ Penn.. He hardly struggles, but if he does he’s revealed some fantastic potential. Elkins (24-7) is 14-6 overall from the UFC but has dropped back-to-back conflicts to Ricardo Lamas and Alexander Volkanovski. Still, he’s one of the toughest fighters in 145lbs there’s. Although Hall is an excellent grappler, Elkins should be able to neutralize himand given all of his achievement in the UFC he must be the favorite in this fight.
Cynthia Calvillo vs. Livia Renata Souza, UFC 155
A fascinating women’s strawweight bout between Cynthia Calvillo and Livia Renata Souza can also be set for this card. Calvillo (8-1) is 5-1 at the UFC and has won back-to-back fights over Poliana Botelho and Cortney Casey because her lone career reduction to Carla Esparza. Souza (13-1) is currently riding a four-fight win streak and has won both of her UFC bouts over Alex Chambers and Sarah Frota. This is a really good fight between two of their best strawweights in the world. If I had to guess, Calvillo will be a tiny favored due to having more UFC experience and a bigger title, but Souza absolutely is a live dog to win this fight.
Benito Lopez vs. Martin Day, UFC 155 And lastly, bantamweight prospects Benito Lopez and Martin Day are set to battle. Lopez (9-1) is currently 1-1 at the UFC with a decision win over Albert Morales and a entry loss to Manny Bermudez in his final outing, the first loss of his MMA career. However, he’s only 25 and remains a top prospect at 135lbs. Day (8-3) lost a split decision to Pingyuan Liu in his UFC debut last year. Although dawn is a good fighter, Lopez has far more upside and ought to be the preferred here.
