UFC 234 is set to occur less than fourteen days from now at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. With the card quickly coming up, there have sadly been some injuries and a couple of fights are affected. Here’s an update on the latest fights for UFC 234 in today’s MMA odds and ends.
Sam Alvey vs. Jimmy Crute, UFC 234
Because of an injury to Ryan Spann, Sam Alvey has stepped on short notice and will take on rising prospect Jimmy Crute in a light heavyweight battle. News of this new matchup was first revealed by
Alvey (33-11, 1 NC) is 10-6 overall in the UFC while splitting his time between middleweight and light heavyweight. Since going around 205lbs, Alvey has gone 2-1 with wins over Gian Villante and Marcin Prachnio and a sudden TKO loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in his last struggle. Alvey has settled into the role of gatekeeper, despite the loss to Nogueira he stays a stern test for any up-and-coming in the light heavyweight division, making Crute the most ideal opponent. Be aware that Alvey was originally set to combat Gadzhimurad Antigulov in UFC Fight Night 145 before being pulled for this matchup.
Crute (9-0) looked great in his UFC debut because he submitted Paul Craig. He’s only 22-years old and has lots of assurance as an undefeated potential. He’s the Aussie native and contains all of the pressure on himbut he has not shown any signs of not having the ability to fulfill the hype. From all reports, Crute seems like he’s some of those qualities of a future light heavyweight title contender.
In terms of the odds, Crute was a +110 underdog against Ryan Spann, but I’d have bet him at those chances as I watched worth there. Against Alvey, I don’t see any reason why Crute would not be a huge favorite. I’d peg him about -300 in this fight, and I visit him beating Alvey and continuing his march towards the top-15 ranks.
Callan Potter vs. Jalin Turner, UFC 234
Because of an injury to Alex Gorgees, Callan Potter will make his UFC debut on short notice when he takes on Jalin Turner at UFC 234. Nolan King broke the information.
Potter (16-7) is a local Aussie fighter and was riding an eight-fight win series before being submitted by Marcin Held at ACB in his last struggle. He really has quite a bit of expertise, having fought Jake Matthews earlier in his career. However, he’s got no notable wins. Note that all Potter’s struggles have finished inside the space — win or lose.
Turner (7-4) was knocked out by Vicente Luque in his UFC debut. That was always going to be a difficult matchup for Turner, and I’m still not certain why the UFC put up him as a sacrificial lamb there. All seven of Turner’s career wins have come by stoppage, though he has been knocked out three times which is of class concerning.
Turner is the larger name and also had a full camp so I do expect him to be favored, but I believe Potter has a pretty good chance here. However, this might be a struggle where the props might be the best bet, and the prop I will be looking for is the fight ending within the distance, as I fully expect someone to get knocked out.
