Fiorot vs Namajunas Betting Preview: How To Bet on This Fight
Let's start with "Thug" Rose. She's a multiple-time strawweight champion with some massive moments (many of which as the betting underdog) in her eight-year UFC career. I don't doubt she could pull off another upset, but she'll have to overcome significant obstacles.
First, this is Namajunas' first fight at flyweight. She wasn't a very physically imposing strawweight, and now she'll face Fiorot, arguably the hottest flyweight on the planet not named Alexa Grasso. Fiorot has won five straight bouts to kick off her UFC career.
I don't see any real advantages for Rose. She's shorter than Fiorot and, in my opinion, doesn't possess a grappling advantage. "The Beast" also throws punches at a far higher volume than Namajunas, which will bode very well in a bout destined to go the distance.
Fiorot vs Namajunas Pick
I'll be betting Fiorot in the -170 to -200 range. She's a perfect bet for a modest straight-up play or a reliable base bet for a parlay.
For more value, I'll take Fiorot by decision.
