The UFC is led back to the City of Brotherly Love after this month, and a couple fights are inserted on short notice. UFC on ESPN 2 happens March 30 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, along with my first thoughts on these new bouts are under.
Kevin Holland vs. Gerald Meerschaert, UFC on ESPN two Middleweights Kevin Holland Gerald Meerschaert are set to clash at UFC on ESPN 2 in what should be a fun battle for the fans. The Philly Voice broke the news. Holland (13-4) dropped a choice to Thiago Santos in his UFC debut but rebounded nicely with a submission win over John Phillips. Overall, he's won five of the last six fights. Meerschaert (28-10) is currently 4-2 at the UFC but is coming off of a submission loss to Jack Hermansson. Both Holland and Meerschaert are extremely underrated and exciting fighters in middleweight, but given Holland's youth and physiological benefits in this fight, I would make him the favorite here.
Ray Borg vs. Kyler Phillips, UFC on ESPN two Due to an accident to Pingyuan Liu, Ray Borg now meets short-notice replacement competitor Kyler Phillips in a bantamweight bout. Borg (11-3) is 5-3 overall in the UFC but hasn't fought as a submission loss to Demetrious Johnson at October 2017. He has dealt with a great deal in his young career and he could put the past behind him. Phillips (6-1) is making his UFC debut after picking up a head kick KO in LFA only a couple of weeks ago. He's a veteran of the Contender Series and looks like a very promising prospect, but he lacks the UFC encounter that Borg has. I think Phillips has a opportunity to win this fight, but you still have to prefer Borg.
Alex Perez vs. Mark de la Rosa, UFC on ESPN 2 Moving upward from flyweight into bantamweight is Alex Perez, and he'll take on Mark de la Rosa. Perez (21-5) won his first three UFC fights before getting knocked out by Joseph Benavidez in his last outing. Prior to this, he had been riding an eight-fight win streak. De la Rosa (11-1) is 2-1 at the UFC and his spouse Montana de la Rosa is having a great deal of success in the Octagon, but the fact he struggled in a narrow split decision win over Joby Sanchez was bothering. Like many bantamweight bouts, this should be competitive, but I would still prefer Perez to get his hands raised.
John Makdessi vs. Jesus Pinedo, UFC Fight Night 148
Because of accidents Chris Gruetzemacher and Nasrat Haqparast, their first rivals John Makdessi and Jesus Pinedo will fight at UFC Fight Night 148, taking place March 23 in Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Considering both guys are lightweights who only lost their opponents, this is the way to maintain both men on the card. Makdessi (16-6) is 9-6 at the UFC and is coming from back-to-back wins over Ross Pearson and Abel Trujillo. Pinedo (16-4-1) is really on a seven-fight win streak and conquer Devin Powell by choice in his UFC debut. Makdessi has a whole lot of experience in the Octagon however Pinedo is only 22-years-old and seems like a fantastic prospect. I'd expect a close line here but awarded Pinedo's childhood and upside down he's most likely the drama in this .
