UFC Fight Island 4 is happening tonight in Abu Dhabi and a couple of the matchups turn heads.
Yorgan De Castro-Carlos Felipe
De Castro (-255) comes in as a heavy favorite over Carlos Felipe (+210) with more quickness than he’s given credit for. Two big guys, but Yorgan’s speed is expected to take over this fight.
Germaine De Randamie-Julianna Pena
De Randamie (-154) is favored tonight out of respect for her pure striking ability. Pena (+130) fought ONCE the last three years, so that doesn’t help.
Holly Holm-Irene Aldana
Holm (-120) has gone just 3-5 since her upset victory over Ronda Rousey, but she can shift momentum tonight. Irene Aldana (+102) is motivated by this fight being delayed since August and this being the biggest fight of her career. Irene’s steady improvement the last three fights gives hope she can hold her own in this fight.
Kyler Phillips-Cameron Else
Phillips (-480) walks into the Octagon a monster favorite and his fight style won’t allow for much hiding. Cameron Else (+370) will be need to find ways to slow Phillips’ aggressiveness. Kyler has proven to be the more polished fighter to this point, so Else will need to make an adjustment tonight.
Dequan Townsend-Dusko Todorovic
Todorovic (-335) is a far more experienced fighter as he nears 30 career fights coming into tonight. Right now, Todorovic could shock some people after his first round knockout of Michael Pereira leaves the question of how good he may be.
