The Octagon heads north of the border for UFC Fight Night 150, taking place May 4 at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
There have been several upgrades to the card, and also the newest bouts are given below.
Sarah Moras vs. Macy Chiasson, UFC Fight Night 150
Women’s bantamweights Sarah Moras and Macy Chiasson are set 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 continued to develop her hype train with a brutal knockout over Gina Mazany her last time out. The UFC is clearly quite high on Chiasson and she’s making a quick return to the Octagon having just fought UFC 235 final month. There’s no doubt the UFC is serving up Moras to get finished by Chiasson, who’s among 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 fight.
Walt Harris vs. Sergey Spivak, UFC Fight Night 150
Following Aleksei Oleinik was pulled to fight Alistair Overeem in UFC Fight Night 149, today Walt Harris takes on UFC newcomer Sergey Spivak in UFC Fight Night 150. Harris (11-7, 1 NC) is currently 4-6, 1 NC in the UFC and is coming from a No Contest against Andrei Arlovski at UFC 232 after testing positive for a banned substance. Harris has been a huge downturn in the UFC and it’s amazing he continues to get so many opportunities despite his poor record and his latest drug test failure. Spivak (9-0) has completed all of his pro fights including stoppage wins over noted journeyman Travis Fulton and Tony Lopez in the regional scene. While Harris might possess more UFC experience, this may be a good place to fade him and take a shot at the unbeaten Spivak, that looks like a really good prospect.
Mitch Gagnon vs. Cole Smith, UFC Fight Night 150
Also place for UFC Fight Night 150 is a bantamweight bout between Mitch Gagnon and Cole Smith, who is filling in on short notice for the injured Brian Kelleher. Gagnon (12-4) is 4-3 in the UFC however is riding a two-fight losing skid and hasn’t won a fight as a 2014 submission win over Roman Salazar. It is amazing how Gagnon’s career has taken such a nosedive, because at one point in time that he looked like he could be a future title competitor from the bantamweight division, but of course these days are long behind him today. Smith (6-0) has won all six of his pro fights so far about the Canadian regional circuit together with five of those coming from stoppage. Gagnon will probably be the favorite here, however, he’s prime fade material and Smith may be a trendy dog pick for bettors that are feeling blessed.
