Quite a few quality spells have been shown for upcoming UFC cards, and my thoughts on them are below.
Demian Maia vs. Anthony Rocco Martin, UFC on ESPN 3
Standout welterweights Demian Maia and Anthony Rocco Martin will fight at UFC on ESPN 3, taking place June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Combate broke the information. Maia (26-9) is 20-9 in the UFC and is coming off of a submission win over Lyman Good. Martin (16-4) is 8-4 in the UFC and has won all four of his fights since moving up to welterweight. Martin is a fantastic fighter and may very well win this battle, but based on Maia's level of knowledge and the quality of his resistance over the years he deserves to be the betting favorite here.
Paul Craig vs. Alonzo Menifield, UFC on ESPN 3
An intriguing light heavyweight bout between Paul Craig and Alonzo Menifield match at UFC on ESPN 3. Craig (11-3) is 3-3 at the UFC and is coming off of a miracle entry win over Kennedy Nzechukwu. Menifield (8-0) is undefeated as an expert with all of his wins coming from stoppage, including a brutal KO over Vinicius Moreira in his UFC debut. You can never fully count Craig out as he has proven he can come back and win late in the struggle by submission, but on paper Menifield is the better athlete and he must be a massive favorite here.
Marlon Vera vs. Sean O'Malley, UFC 239
An exciting bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and Sean O'Malley is scheduled for UFC 239, taking place June 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. ESPN's Ariel Helwani broke the information. Vera (13-5-1) is 7-4 at the UFC and is coming from three straight endings over Frankie Saenz, Guido Cannetti and Wuliji Buren. O'Malley (10-0) is 2-0 at the UFC but hasn't competed in over a year due to some USADA suspension. O'Malley is a huge young potential but Vera is battling a high level at the moment and deserves to be the favorite here.
Cezar Ferreira vs. Martin Vettori, UFC Fight Night 155
Middleweights Cezar Ferreira and Marvin Vettori are set to fight at UFC Fight Night 155, occurring July 13 in an unannounced venue in Sacramento, California. Combate broke the information. Ferreira (13-7) is 9-5 in the UFC and is coming from an upset decision loss to Ian Heinisch. Vettori (12-4-1) hasn't fought in over a year because of some USADA suspension and also in his last fight dropped a split decision to Israel Adesanya. That is a near fight but given how close Vettori was to beating Adesanya, even with the long layoff I'd favor him slightly to get the win here over the aging and chinny Ferreira.
Beneil Dariush vs. Drakkar Klose, UFC on ESPN 3
Lightweights Beneil Dariush and Drakkar Klose will also fulfill at UFC Fight Night 155. Dariush (16-4-1) is 10-4-1 from the UFC and is coming from back-to-back wins over Drew Dober and Thiago Moises. Klose (10-1-1) is 4-1 in the UFC and is coming off of consecutive wins over Bobby Green and Lando Vannata. This is an excellent matchup but I'd really favor Klose as stylistically it is a great battle for him because he should be able to keep it standing and win the battle that is spectacular.
