In the principal party, previous women’s strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk (15-3 MMA, 9-three UFC) usually takes on fellow contender Michelle Waterson (17-6 MMA, 5-two UFC) in what could prove to be a title eliminator. The oddsmakers have built Jedrzejczyk a large favorite all-around -350, and our 13 MMA Junkie editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers are siding with her, as nicely, at a 10-3 clip.

In the co-main celebration, Kron Gracie (5- MMA, one- UFC) normally takes on Cub Swanson (25-11 MMA, 10-7 UFC) in a featherweight bout. Gracie is about a -185 favourite, and like Jedrzejczyk, he’s a 10-3 select from our employees associates.

Also on the principal card, Niko Price tag (13-three MMA, 5-three UFC) will take on James Vick (13-4 MMA, nine-4 UFC) in a welterweight bout. Price is a gentle beloved at the athletics guides, but he’s a first rate preferred with our pickers at eight-5

Mackenzie Dern (7- MMA, two- UFC) is about a -150 favourite in opposition to Amanda Ribas (seven-1 MMA, one- UFC) in their women’s strawweight bout, but Dern has a significant 9-4 guide in the picks.

Our closest battle, picks-smart, is at light-weight amongst Matt Frevola (7-1-one MMA, 1-1-1 UFC) and Luis Pena (seven-one MMA, three-one UFC). Frevola is the underdog, but he’s received a 7-6 picks direct.

And to open up the major card, Eryk Anders (12-4 MMA, four-four UFC) has a big nine-four picks guide about Gerald Meerschaert (30-11 MMA, 5-3 UFC) in their mild heavyweight bout.

In the MMA Junkie reader consensus picks, Jedrzejczyk (62%), Gracie (58 percent), Price (68 %), Dern (70 percent), Pena (80 %) and Anders (73 %) are the selections.
