Fights should start in just a few minutes, here are some details about them:


CommonShore posted:

Lazy rear end breakdown

Women’s Featherweight Aspen Ladd vs Norma Dumont
Ladd hosed up her weight cut so bad again that we thought she wasn’t medically cleared to fight but it was that her opponent didn’t want to fight her. She’s cleared to fight like a week or two later after Holly Holm pulled out. She’s a ground and pound fighter and a prospect. Dumont is one of the featherweights in the UFC.

Heavyweight Andrei Arlovski vs Carlos Felipe
Arlovski is coming off of a decision over Chase Sherman. Felipe is fat and sucks poo poo. He’s coming off of two “who gives a poo poo who wins” split decisions over similarly fat and mediocre heavyweights.

Jim Miller vs Erick Gonzalez
Miller is on the short list of “most UFC fights.” His fights are usually good. He has rudimentary boxing with good grappling. He’s on a 2-fight skid. Gonzalez is a combate veteran making his ufc debut.

Flyweight Manon Fiorot vs Mayra Bueno Silva
Fiorot is pretty good so far in her early UFC fights – she has two standing TKOs. She’s a French kickboxer. Silva is a DWCS girl who drew with Montana De La Rosa in February to go 2-1-1. She has a submission of Gillian Robertson, so she’s a good grappler.

Middleweight Julian Marquez vs Jordan Wright
Marquez is The Cuban Missile Crisis and he’s a big burly lunk who cranks people’s necks and says weird poo poo. Jordan Wright looks like he is so corn fed that he is made out of corn. He has a mixed UFC record with a KO loss to Joaquim Buckley but some wins over other dudes too. He’s mostly a punch man.

Prelims
Middleweight Andrew Sanchez vs Bruno Silva
Sanchez is a wrestler who won a bad season of TUF and is roughly 0.500 since then. He doesn’t really have any good wins and he has gotten KOed by dudes like Anthony Smith. Bruno Silva is a Brazilian who went into a BJJ specialist’s guard and KOed him in a really cool way back in June.

Welterweight Danny Roberts vs Ramazan Emeev
Danny Roberts is one of those dudes who has like 12 UFC fights but nobody remembers. He’s a British kickboxer with losses to guys like Nordine Taleb and Mike Perry. Emeev has 5-1 UFC record but no finishes and a loss to Rocco Martin. Dagestani wrestler I think.

Flyweight Lupita Godinez vs Luana Carolina
Wait… Didn’t Loopy Godinez fight last weekend? poo poo she did. She won by first round armbar. She’s a Mexican-Canadian grappler and she seems cool. She steps in to replace Sijara Eubanks and Maryna Moroz. Carolina is a Brazilian who lost to Ariane Lipski by kneebar, but she has some wins over low-tier UFC opponents. She missed weight last time.

Featherweight Nate Landwehr vs Ludovit Klein
Landwehr is a hard headed haymaker throwin’ weirdo. Slovakian Klein “Mr Highlight” is 1-1 in the UFC with a flashy first round KO and a disappointing decision loss.

Bantamweight Danaa Batgerel vs Brandon Davis
Batgerel is a Mongolian and he’s cool. He won his last two fights by first round KO. Davis got bounced from the UFC after losing a whole bunch of fights including to Zabit by Suloev Stretch, but he won 4 in a row in the z-leagues so he’s back.

Strawweight Istela Nunes vs Ariane Carnelossi
Carnelossi is a yoked Brazilian who got nastily TKOed by Angela Hill like 2 years ago. She won a TKO in April. Nunes lost to Angela Lee in ONE and is undefeated otherwise. This is her UFC debut.

I liked Bisping's theory that they weren't deducting a point from Nunes for fence-grabbing because even flagrant cheating would not save her from the wrath of Carnelossi

Not really liking what I saw from Davis compared to his previous UFC run, shame. Batgerel spends so little time in the octagon nobody's ever gonna know who he is, heh.

The gently caress is going on with Roberts' ribcage/ab area?

I think if Emeev had been watching Tyson highlights during the weight cut like Khabib did (for the Iaquinta fight, I think) he'd have knocked Roberts out by now

I also bet $5 on Roberts and Landwehr both winning, because apparently I hate money.

When I heard 30-27 I thought for sure it was for Emeev, weird.

Probably not? Ladd is a last minute (we found out October 7th) replacement for Holly Holm and she's being forced to move up to 145.

I don't know too much about Dumont but the betting odds on this are pretty close, does anyone know the odds for the original matchup? That matchmaking actually seems way weirder to me, Holm vs a 6-1 fighter.

Dumont was brought in last year to give Megan Anderson a win with an impressive record to fight Nunes. I know Dumont beat Spencer, but there's no way the UFC's plans account for Dumont beating either Holm or Ladd in this fight.

Yeah, they would very much like to put some marketing weight behind Ladd.
