UFC PHILADELPHIA ADDS KEVIN HOLLAND VS. GERALD MEERSCHAERTadmin
The UFC is headed back into the City of Brotherly Love later this month, and a few fights are added on short notice. UFC on ESPN 2 takes place March 30 in Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and my first thoughts on those new bouts are under.
Kevin Holland vs. Gerald Meerschaert, UFC on ESPN two Middleweights Kevin Holland Gerald Meerschaert are set to battle at UFC on ESPN 2 in what should be a fun fight 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 has won five of his last six fights. Meerschaert (28-10) is 4-2 in the UFC but is coming from a entry loss to Jack Hermansson. Both Holland and Meerschaert are very underrated and exciting fighters at middleweight, but awarded Holland’s childhood and physical benefits in this particular fight, I would make him the favorite here.
Ray Borg vs. Kyler Phillips, UFC on ESPN two Due to an injury to Pingyuan Liu, Ray Borg now meets short-notice replacement opponent Kyler Phillips in a bantamweight bout. Borg (11-3) is 5-3 overall from the UFC but hasn’t fought as a submission loss to Demetrious Johnson in October 2017. He’s dealt with a lot in his young career and hopefully 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 few weeks ago. He’s a veteran of the Contender Series and looks like a very promising prospect, however, he lacks the UFC experience that Borg has. I think Phillips has a chance to win this fight, however you still must prefer Borg.
Alex Perez vs. Mark de la Rosa, UFC on ESPN two Moving upward from flyweight to bantamweight is Alex Perez, and he will take on Mark de la Rosa. Perez (21-5) won his first three UFC battles before getting knocked out by Joseph Benavidez in his final outing. Prior to this, he had been riding an eight-fight win streak. De la Rosa (11-1) is 2-1 in the UFC and his wife Montana de la Rosa is getting a lot of success in the Octagon, but the fact he struggled in a narrow split decision win over Joby Sanchez was troubling. Like most bantamweight bouts, this should be aggressive, but I’d still prefer Perez to receive 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 now fight at UFC Fight Night 148, taking place March 23 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Considering both men are lightweights who only lost their competitions, this is the best 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 on a seven-fight win series and conquer Devin Powell by decision in his UFC debut. Makdessi has a ton of experience in the Octagon however Pinedo is just 22-years-old and looks like a fantastic prospect. I’d anticipate a close line here but awarded Pinedo’s youth and upside down he’s most likely the drama in this .
