On The Rise: UFC 235
With a UFC events card of this greatness, I could utilize this chance to convey another “Keep going Chance to Get ready” version of On the Rise, spotlighting contenders who have been referenced in his arrangement previously, are proceeding to do huge things and aren’t going to be up-and-comers for any longer.
I could tell you that Weili Zhang can build up herself as a dim steed contender in the strawweight division by knocking off Tecia Torres, which would be her third win in eight months inside the Octagon.
I could disclose to you the Johnny Walker publicity train is going to achieve runaway velocities on the off chance that he adds another triumph to the absurd feature reel he’s accumulated through his initial two UFC begins.
I could bring up that Zabit Magomedsharipov is making a noteworthy stride up in rivalry against Jeremy Stephens and would put himself on the edges of title conflict with a success on Saturday or how Alejandro Perez may be the most underestimated bantamweight on the program right now as he hopes to stretch out his unbeaten streak to eight of every a quality matchup against Cody Stamann, another OTR graduate who is enthusiastic about bobbing once more from his accommodation misfortune to Aljamain Sterling back in September.
I could, yet I won’t.
Rather, I’ll center around three UFC prospects intending to join the developing rundown of fighters highlighted in this arrangement throughout the years who have proceeded to make waves in their separate divisions.
This is the UFC 235 live release of On the Rise.
Shahbazyan was one of the most youthful fighters to gather a UFC contract from the second period of the Contender Series, truly punching his way into the Octagon with a first-round stoppage prevail upon Antonio Jones. It was his seventh win in the same number of begins and proceeded with his string of first-round completions while putting him unequivocally in the spotlight as he entered the conflict in the 185-pound weight division.
The 21-year-old kept up his unbeaten record — however not his series of stoppages — in his limited time debut, pushing out British processor Darren Stewart in a hard-battled fight at the TUF 28 Finale.
Since he fights out of the Glendale Fighting Club and is repped by Ronda Rousey’s One Fight Management, Shahbazyan is going to accumulate a couple of a bigger number of eyeballs than most UFC sophomores, yet there is a great deal to like about the middleweight confident and he gets another opportunity to feature his potential this end of the week in an extreme task against individual Contender Series alum Charles Byrd.
An individual from the flooding Fortis MMA group, Byrd split a couple of appearances in the Octagon in 2018 subsequent to winning two fights on the primary period of the Tuesday night arrangement.
Getting two successes over strong veterans in the range of three months would be an enormous path for Shahbazyan to commence his UFC vocation and set himself in place to get a more prominent push and greater open doors next time out.
Two fights after Shahbazyan hauled out a success over Stewart in Las Vegas, Chiasson turned into the fifth female champ of The Ultimate Fighter, rising triumphant from the featherweight rivalry on Season 28 with a second-round back bare stifle completion of Pannie Kianzad.
Inked and gifted, Chiasson migrated from her home in New Orleans to the Dallas-Fort Worth zone only before heading into the TUF house so as to prepare nearby Byrd and the other rising dangers at Fortis MMA. Head mentor Sayif Saud isn’t one for giving just anybody a chance to join the creating group, so the way that Chiasson could persuade the straightforward pioneer of the skilled group that she would be a decent expansion to the squad discloses to you a lot about her cosmetics and potential.
Saturday night in Las Vegas, Chiasson squares off with Gina Mazany, a strong veteran who has rotated successes and misfortunes over her last four. It’s an incredible placement test for the 27-year-old TUF champ — a lumpy vet who won’t go unobtrusively into the night and should enable spectators to improve read on where the newcomer fits in the bantamweight division.
“Shockwave” made her UFC debut without prior warning in October, venturing in to supplant Maia Stevenson inverse super-prospect Maycee Barber under three weeks previously the fight. While the fight went poorly way, Cifers indicated strength and relentlessness before at last getting overpowered and wrapped up by the 20-year-old rising star.
With her first attack into the Octagon behind her and a full camp added to her repertoire, Saturday’s session against Polyana Viana ought to be a superior portrayal of what the 26-year-old is fit for inside the enclosure.
She had won five straight before venturing in with Barber and her two past misfortunes had come against current UFC flyweight Gillian Robertson and previous UFC fighter Heather Clark, so this matchup will give an unmistakable sign of where Cifers fits inside the division. Viana won her limited time debut absent much inconvenience, submitting Stevenson in the first round, yet arrived on the wrong side of a consistent choice decision last time out against JJ Aldrich.
On the off chance that Cifers can verify her first UFC triumph, she’ll set up herself as a long-run prospect to follow going ahead — somebody without indistinguishable buzz from a portion of her more advertised peers, however the coarseness, durability and relentlessness to end up an apparatus in the division who could finish up amazing a couple of individuals a couple of years not far off.
