Why Bet on Andrade
Jessica Andrade is one of the toughest female fighters out there. Not only has she fought against the best of the best and even held UFC Gold; she also goes back and forth in 3 weight classes.
The Brazilian fighter has held the 115lbs Gold, and just had a title fight for the 125lbs strap. As she said back during that fight camp, Women`s Flyweight is the division she feels the most comfortable at.
Andrade’s 3 losses in her last 4 matches may not look good on paper. But, looking at the names of the opponents who defeated her, 2 of them currently hold UFC Gold.
Andrade is the favorite for this fight, as it seems she is currently the Women Division’s Gatekeeper. Only Champion-level fighters have been able to get past her in the last 5 years.
Why Bet on Calvillo
Calvillo comes into this fight trying to fix the mistakes from her last bout against Katlyn Chookagian, and looking forward to showing that she has what it takes to fight for the belt.
As the fighter with less than half the amount of fights as her opponent, she has to come into the fight at her best and showcase everything she has in store. That is if she plans to exit the octagon with her hand up.
This is not going to be an easy fight for Calvillo. However, it may be the opportunity she had been looking for in order to fight for UFC Gold.
Final Betting Analysis: Jessica Andrade vs. Cynthia Calvillo
Cynthia Calvillo is a well-rounded fighter but her success has come mostly from decision victories, and she well trusted Rear Naked Choke submission.
For this night, she is going to be faced a lot of trouble, as Andrade is known for putting her opponents through a ton of pressure, and her credentials as a Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt and more submission victories than her opponent should keep her confident if the fight hits the ground.
As much as we like an underdog story, we believe that Jessica Andrade is currently on champion-fighter level, and take her as our betting pick, thinking that Calvillo will not be able to get the upset.
