TRIO OF NEW UFC WOMEN’S BOUTS REVEALED INCLUDING RETURN OF EMILY WHITMIRE
A trio of new women’s bouts have been announced for upcoming events. Here are the fights, together with my first thoughts on these.
Emily Whitmire vs. Amanda Ribas, UFC on ESPN 3
An intriguing women’s strawweight bout between Emily Whitmire and Amanda Ribas has been scheduled for UFC on ESPN 3, occurring June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Combate broke the information. Whitmire (4-2) is 2-1 in the UFC and lately needed just 61 seconds to submit Aleksandra Albu at a breakout performance that set a UFC women’s strawweight document for fastest submission win. Ribas (6-1) was recently cleared by USADA after sitting out two years due to a tainted supplement and will look to leap back to the win column for the first time since 2016. Given the long layoff to get Ribas and the recent success of Whitmire inside the Octagon, look for Whitmire for a strong gaming preferred heading into this particular bout.
Angela Hill vs. Yan Xiaonan, UFC 238
Because of an injury to Wu Yanan, Angela Hill has agreed to step on short notice when she takes on Yan Xiaonan at UFC 238, which is set for June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The news broke. Hill (9-6) recently picked up a decision win over Jodie Esquibel to snap a two-fight win series and will fight again less than six weeks afterwards here against Xiaonan. It’s been a busy beginning to 2019 for Hill, who will be battling for the third time in four weeks should she make it into this particular fight. Total Hill is 4-6 in the Octagon in two different stints with the advertising. Xiaonan (10-1, 1 NC) is riding a nine-fight unbeaten streak and is 3-0 overall in the UFC with all three of her wins coming by choice. This ought to be a competitive fight but given the level of competition she has fought and how busy she’s been so far in 2019, expect Hill to be favored in this one.
Claudia Gadelha vs. Randa Markos, UFC 239
Two of the best female strawweights in the world at place to meet at UFC 239 as Claudia Gadelha matches Randa Markos. The card takes place July 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gadelha (16-4) is astonishingly only 6-4 from the UFC and is coming off of a sudden decision loss to Nina Ansaroff. Once one of the most stressed women’s strawweights about the UFC roster, Gadelha has struggled in the last few years and seems to be on the decline at age 30 as each of the wars she’s been in have caught around her. Markos (9-6, 1 NC) is 5-5-1 from the UFC and lately picked up arguably her most impressive win yet, a first-round submission success over Angela Hill. Markos has battled consistency issues within the Octagon and has yet to rack up a win series of more than 1 fight in a row, but the victory over Hill may be a indication that she has finally figured out things. Contemplating Gadelha consistently gets plenty of respect from bettors I really do expect her to be favored here, however, Markos is a live dog in this fight.
