The UFC has formally announced its upcoming event in The Windy City. UFC 238 takes place June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois, and the first few bouts for the card have already been shown, including the women’s flyweight title fight. My thoughts about the brand new spells — all women’s fights — are below.
UFC 238 vs. Jessica Eye, valentina Shevchenko UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko will create her first title defense when she takes on Jessica Eye at UFC 238. Though not official, it’s probably this bout will function as the co-main occasion of the pay-per-view.
Shevchenko (16-3) is 5-2 at the UFC and won the empty flyweight title with a five-round unanimous decision win over Joanna Jedrzejczyk in her final outing. She is 2-0 as a flyweight in the UFC, and her only two losses at the Octagon came from double champ Amanda Nunes. Eye (14-6, 1 NC) is currently 4-5, 1 NC total in the UFC and is 3-0 considering moving to the flyweight division. But, her wins at 125lbs were all very close decisions, and Shevchenko is a massive step up in contest from who Eye has been fighting.
Start looking for the champ Shevchenko to open as a monster favorite here as she looks to get her first title defense under her belt and begin to build her legacy in the game.
Katlyn Chookagian vs. Joanne Calderwood, UFC 238
Flyweight contenders Katlyn Chookagian and Joanne Calderwood are also set to meet at UFC 238. When there’s an injury to someone in the main event, it’s possible either of those fighters could be called up to fight for the name.
Chookagian (11-2) is 4-2 overall from the UFC and most recently dropped a split decision to Eye in UFC 231. Calderwood (13-3) is 5-2 at the UFC and is coming off of back-to-back wins over Ariane Lipski and Kalindra Faria since moving up to flyweight.
Moving up in weight appears like it had been the best choice of Calderwood’s livelihood as she looks rejuvenated at her new weight class. Chookagian is a good fighter, but she lacks the finishing ability that Calderwood has. The gambling line ought to be rather close, but I would favor Calderwood here.
Tatiana Suarez vs. Nina Ansaroff, UFC 238
Leading women’s strawweight contenders Tatiana Suarez and Nina Ansaroff will square off at UFC 238 with a potential title shot at stake.
Suarez (7-0) won The Ultimate Fighter 23 and can be a perfect 4-0 at the UFC such as a gigantic TKO win over Carla Esparza in her last outing that announced herself as a legitimate title contender at 115lbs. Ansaroff (10-5) is currently 4-2 at the UFC and is currently riding a four-fight win streak with a breakthrough decision win over Claudia Gadelha in her last fight.
This is a huge matchup between two of the trendiest strawweights on Earth, and the winner should be next in line to resist the victory of UFC 237’s Rose Namajunas vs. Jessica Andrade. Although I love what Ansaroff has been performing lately, you just have to go with the upside and take Suarez inside this fight. Like she always appears like, I anticipate Suarez to be a big favorite to win this battle.
