The Octagon heads north of the border for UFC Fight Night 150, taking place May 4 in Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
There have been several upgrades to the card, and the new bouts are given below.
Sarah Moras vs. Macy Chiasson, UFC Fight Night 150
Women’s bantamweights Sarah Moras and Macy Chiasson are place for a featured bout at UFC Fight Night 150. Moras (5-4) is 2-3 in the UFC and is coming from last-minute conclusion loss to Talita Bernardo and Lucie Pudilova. The former TUF contestant has not won a fight since a submission win over Ashlee Evans-Smith in late 2017. Chiasson (4-0) won The Ultimate Fighter using a stoppage win over Pannie Kianzad and proceeded to develop her hype train with a brutal knockout over Gina Mazany her final time out. The UFC is clearly quite high on Chiasson and she’s making a quick return to the Octagon having only fought UFC 235 final month. There’s no doubt that the UFC is serving up Moras for finished by Chiasson, who is one of the top female prospects in the game right now. Although Moras has pulled off the upset before, this looks like a terrible matchup for her on paper, and Chiasson should be a massive favorite heading into the struggle.
Walt Harris vs. Sergey Spivak, UFC Fight Night 150
After Aleksei Oleinik was hauled to fight Alistair Overeem at UFC Fight Night 149, today Walt Harris takes on UFC newcomer Sergey Spivak at UFC Fight Night 150. Harris (11-7, 1 NC) is 4-6, 1 NC in the UFC and is coming off of a No Contest against Andrei Arlovski at UFC 232 after testing positive for a banned substance. Harris continues to be a massive disappointment in the UFC and it is amazing he continues to get so many chances despite his bad record and his latest drug test failure. Spivak (9-0) has completed all of his pro fights including stoppage wins noted journeyman Travis Fulton and Tony Lopez on the regional scene. While Harris might have more UFC experience, this could be a good place to fade him and take a shot at the unbeaten Spivak, who seems like a excellent prospect.
Mitch Gagnon vs. Cole Smith, UFC Fight Night 150
Also set for UFC Fight Night 150 is a bantamweight bout between Mitch Gagnon and Cole Smith, who’s filling in on short notice for the injured Brian Kelleher. Gagnon (12-4) is 4-3 in the UFC but is riding a two-fight losing skid and hasn’t won a fight since a 2014 entry win over Roman Salazar. It is wonderful how Gagnon’s profession has taken such a nosedive, since at one time he seemed like he could be a future title competitor in the bantamweight division, but of course those days are long behind him today. Smith (6-0) has won six of his pro fights so far on the Canadian regional circuit together with five of them coming from stoppage. Gagnon will most likely be the preferred here, however, he is prime fade cloth and Smith may be a cool dog select for bettors who are feeling blessed.
