Why Bet on Holly Holm
The former, UFC Bantamweight Champion, Holly Holm once again gets ready to enter the cage in the Flyweight Division, and she comes in as a betting favorite.
The Preacher’s Daughter has fought the best of the best, and even though her record has her at 14 wins and 5 losses, there is a little detail about those losses that we should take into consideration.
All the names that have defeated Holm, are fighters that have held the UFC Championship either in Bantamweight or Featherweight.
It looks like to beat Holly Holm, you have to be at the very top of what the sport has to offer.
Why Bet on Norma Dumont
Dumont is getting ready to show the world that she is here not to take place, but to take over when she faces a tough challenge in what is now the Main Event.
The Brazilian fighter has had a short career, coming in with a 6-1 record, and winning 4 by decision, with the other 2 being rear-naked choke submissions.
Her career may be a short one so far, but her only loss has been against Megan Anderson, who immediately got a Title fight afterward.
It certainly looks like a victory against Holm can place Dumont across from Amanda Nunes in her next fight.
Final Betting Analysis: Holly Holm vs. Norma Dumont
There are a few details that may give us a clear picture of what we can expect on the main event of the evening.
This fight will give us a clear picture of who is next to challenge for the undisputed UFC Title.
The fight was also switched from being a 3 rounds co-main event to taking the main event spot, which is an important factor in the fight itself.
The main event status increases the fight into 5 Rounds, which is a situation the former champion has already faced, but the Brazilian fighter hasn’t.
This makes a huge difference for both fighters, as Holly Holm has excellent endurance for a 5 round fight, but is also a fight finisher, and she is dangerous at any given moment.
Dumont has mostly won the fight by decision, which is going to get difficult once she meets the preacher’s daughter, and the endurance test of two extra rounds may turn the fight into a difficult night for her.
With this in mind, our betting pick is on Holm, as we expect a Finish in this fight and a possible future main event rematch against the current champion.
