UFC OTTAWA ANNOUNCED WITH SEVERAL BOUTS INCLUDING DEREK BRUNSON VS. ELIAS THEODOROU

This week, UFC Fight Night 150 was formally announced and the event will occur May 4 at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to declaring that the card, a range of bouts are shown, and here they are under along with my first thoughts on them.
Derek Brunson vs. Elias Theodorou, UFC Fight Night 150
The most important fight announced for this particular card thus much is a middleweight bout between top-15 fighters Derek Brunson and Elias Theodorou. Brunson (18-7) is 9-5 from the UFC and is coming off of back-to-back KO declines to Israel Adesanya and Ronaldo”Jacare” Souza. Theodorou (16-2) is 8-2 in the UFC and has won his last few fights such as a determination win over Eryk Anders in his last outing. Brunson has the wrestling and power but Theodorou gets the chin and cardio. Tough one to call but I’d have to prefer Theodorou at this point.
Arjan Bhullar vs. Juan Adams, UFC Fight Night 150
A fun heavyweight bout sees Arjan Bhullar take on Juan Adams. Bhullar (8-1) is 2-1 in the UFC and won a decision over Marcelo Golm his final fight. Adams (5-0) has won all five of his pro fights by TKO including a knockout over Chris de la Rocha in his UFC debut. Though Bhullar has solid wrestling, I believe Adams is a top notch prospect and could make him a large favorite here.
Sarah Moras vs. Leah Letson, UFC Fight Night 150
Women’s bantamweight Sarah Moras will take on Leah Letson. Moras (5-4) is 2-3 in the UFC and has dropped her last two conflicts. Letson (5-1) is on a five-fight win series including a success in her UFC debut. Moras is fade material and I would heavily favor Letson to get the win .
Brad Katona vs. Merab Dvalishvili, UFC Fight Night 150
Bantamweight prospect Brad Katona will find a step up when he chooses on Merab Dvalishvili. Katona (8-0) is 2-0 in the UFC and just dominated Matthew Lopez in his last fight after winning TUF. Dvalishvili (8-4) is 1-2 in the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Terrion Ware in his final fight. Katona is an excellent prospect and Dvalishvili is an excellent test for him at this stage of his career. It is a tough one to call but given the fact Katona remains undefeated, not to mention Canadian, I think you have to favor him here.
Mitch Gagnon vs. Brian Kelleher, UFC Fight Night 150
Bantamweights in desperate need of wins will fulfill as Mitch Gagnon takes on Brian Kelleher. Gagnon (12-4) is 4-3 in the UFC and is coming off of consecutive losses. Kelleher (19-10) is 3-3 at the UFC and has also lost his last 2 fights. Both men are fade cloth but awarded Gagnon’s long layoff you would have to slightly favor Kelleher within this .
Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Andrew Sanchez, UFC Fight Night 150
Former TKO middleweight champion Marc-Andre Barriault will take on Andrew Sanchez in his UFC debut. Barriault (11-1) is coming from eight wins in a row in TKO and is among Canada’s best MMA prospects. Sanchez (10-4) is 3-2 at the UFC and defeated Markus Perez by decision in his last fight. Sanchez is a solid fighter but I think Barriault is going to be very good and I would definitely favor him for the win here in the capital of Canada.
Aiemann Zahabi vs. Vince Morales, UFC Fight Night 150
And finally, bantamweights Aiemann Zahabi and Vince Morales will struggle. Zahabi (7-1) is 1-1 in the UFC and dropped to Ricardo Ramos via KO in his final fight. Morales (8-3) lost his UFC debut to Yadong Song. This one could go either but I would favor Zahabi just due to the fact he will be fighting so close to home.
