UFC 237 takes place May 11 in Jeunesse Arena at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and many fresh spells with this card have been revealed in the last week. We already knew the most important event is that a women’s UFC strawweight title fight between champion Rose Namajunas and challenger Jessica Andrade, but today we understand some of the undercard bouts too. They are listed below, together with my initial thoughts.
Anderson Silva vs. Jared Cannonier, UFC 237
An intriguing middleweight bout sees Anderson Silva take on Jared Cannonier. ESPN broke the information. Silva (34-9, 1 NC) is 17-5, 1 NC in the UFC and in his final battle missing a hard-fought choice to No. 1 rival Israel Adesanya. Cannonier (11-4) is 4-4 at the UFC and in his middleweight introduction scored an upset KO win over David Branch. As great as Cannonier appeared at 185lbs and as poor as Silva has looked in the previous five decades, I think Silva can win this fight. I am expecting a near fight here, and if for whatever reason Silva is an underdog I would seriously think about taking a shot .
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Ryan Spann, UFC 237
Light heavyweights Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ryan Spann are set to battle. Combate revealed that the news. Nogueira (23-8) is 6-5 from the UFC and in his final fight upset Sam Alvey via KO. Spann (15-5) is really on a five-fight win streak including a decision win over Luis Henrique in his UFC debut. Despite Rogerio’s win over Alvey, I think he has fade substance due to being 42-years old, and that I would have to prefer Spann to acquire this fight just according to him 27-years older.
Bethe Correia vs. Irene Aldana, UFC 237
A women’s bantamweight bout will visit Bethe Correia take on Irene Aldana. Combate broke the news. Correia (10-3-1) is 4-3-1 at the UFC but has not fought since a brutal head kick KO loss to Holly Holm at June 2017. Aldana (9-4) is currently 2-2 from the UFC and has gained back-to-back choices over Lucie Pudilova and Talita Bernardo heading into the match. Correia has to be faded coming off of a long layoff, particularly against a technical striker such as Aldana. I am hoping for a close line here because of Correia’s fame, but I think Aldana intentionally is the most-likely consequence of this particular bout.
Jessica-Rose Clark vs. Talita Bernardo, UFC 237
Women’s flyweights Jessica-Rose Clark and Talita Bernardo will fulfill at this function. Combate broke the information. Clark (9-5, 1 NC) is 2-1 at the UFC but dropped a choice to Jessica Eye in her last bout. Bernardo (6-3) is currently 1-2 at the UFC and is coming from a determination win over Sarah Moras. This should be an aggressive bout but Clark is the proven and professional fighter and needs to be marginally favored here.
Wu Yanan vs. Luana Carolina, UFC 237
And flyweights Wu Yanan and Luana Carolina will clash. Agfight had the information. Yana (10-2) is 1-1 from the UFC for example a choice win over Lauren Mueller in her final outing. Carolina (5-1) has not dropped because her pro debut in 2015, and earned a UFC contract with a win on the Brazilian Contender Series. Both fighters are lacking experience, but Carolina is your Brazilian fighting her home turf here and I would assume she’d be a decent-sized favored at open.
