A trio of new women’s bouts have been announced for upcoming events. Here are the battles, together with my first thoughts on them.
Emily Whitmire vs. Amanda Ribas, UFC on ESPN 3
A fascinating women’s strawweight bout between Emily Whitmire and Amanda Ribas has been scheduled for UFC on ESPN 3, taking place 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 minutes to submit Aleksandra Albu at a breakout performance that place a UFC women’s strawweight record for quickest submission win. Ribas (6-1) was recently cleared by USADA after sitting out two years because of a tainted supplement and will look to jump back to the win column for the first time because 2016. Given the long layoff for Ribas and the current success of Whitmire inside the Octagon, start looking for Whitmire to be a strong gaming preferred heading into this particular bout.
Angela Hill vs. Yan Xiaonan, UFC 238
Due to an injury to Wu Yanan, Angela Hill has agreed to step on short notice when she chooses on Yan Xiaonan at UFC 238, which is set for June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The information broke. Hill (9-6) recently picked up a decision win over Jodie Esquibel to snap a two-fight win streak and will fight again less than six weeks afterwards here against Xiaonan. It’s been a busy start to 2019 for Hill, who is battling for the third time in four months if she make it into this 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 from the UFC with all three of her wins coming by choice. This ought to be a competitive struggle but given the degree of competition she has fought and how busy she’s been in 2019, expect Hill to be favored in this one.
Claudia Gadelha vs. Randa Markos, UFC 239
A couple of the best female strawweights on the planet at set to meet at UFC 239 as Claudia Gadelha meets Randa Markos. The card occurs July 6 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gadelha (16-4) is astonishingly only 6-4 in the UFC and is coming off of a surprising decision reduction to Nina Ansaroff. After one of the most feared women’s strawweights on the UFC roster, Gadelha has struggled in the last few years and seems to be on the decline at age 30 as all the wars she has been have caught around her. Markos (9-6, 1 NC) is 5-5-1 in the UFC and lately picked up arguably her most remarkable win nonetheless, a first-round submission success over Angela Hill. Markos has battled consistency problems within the Octagon and has to rack up a win series of more than one struggle in a row, however, the victory over Hill might be a sign that she has finally figured things out. Contemplating Gadelha consistently gets lots of respect from bettors that I do expect her to be preferred here, but Markos is absolutely a live dog in this fight.
