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 a number of upgrades to the card, and also the new bouts are listed below.
Sarah Moras vs. Macy Chiasson, UFC Fight Night 150
Women’s bantamweights Sarah Moras and Macy Chiasson are place to get a featured bout at UFC Fight Night 150. Moras (5-4) is 2-3 from the UFC and is coming from back-to-back decision loss to Talita Bernardo and Lucie Pudilova. The prior 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 with a stoppage win over Pannie Kianzad and proceeded to develop her hype train using a brutal knockout over Gina Mazany her final time out. The UFC is obviously quite high on Chiasson and she’s making a quick return to the Octagon having just fought UFC 235 last month. There is no doubt the UFC is serving up Moras to get finished by Chiasson, who is one of the top female prospects in the sport at the moment. Though Moras has pulled off the upset before, this resembles a terrible matchup for her on paper, and Chiasson should be a huge favorite heading into the fight.
Walt Harris vs. Sergey Spivak, UFC Fight Night 150
After Aleksei Oleinik was pulled to fight Alistair Overeem in UFC Fight Night 149, now Walt Harris takes on UFC newcomer Sergey Spivak in UFC Fight Night 150. Harris (11-7, 1 NC) is 4-6, 1 NC at the UFC and is coming off of a No Contest against Andrei Arlovski at UFC 232 after testing positive for a banned substance. Harris has been a huge downturn at the UFC and it’s amazing he proceeds to get so many opportunities despite his poor record and his recent drug test failure. Spivak (9-0) has completed all of his pro fights including stoppage wins noted journeyman Travis Fulton and Tony Lopez in the regional arena. While Harris might possess more UFC expertise, this could be a good spot 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’s 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 since a 2014 submission win over Roman Salazar. It is amazing how Gagnon’s career has taken such a nosedive, since at one time that he looked like he could be a future title contender 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 with five of those coming from stoppage. Gagnon will most likely be the preferred here, but he is prime fade cloth and Smith could be a cool dog select for bettors who are feeling blessed.
