UFC Fight Night: Lemos vs Andrade Best Bets

Main Event Odds & Pick

Amanda Lemos vs Jessica Andrade Betting Odds
Amanda Lemos +175
Jessica Andrade-220

Jessica Andrade (-220) is coming off a dominating performance in last September’s first-round TKO win over Cynthia Calvillo, but has failed to tally consecutive victories in almost five years. Things don’t get any easier for the former champ in her date with Amanda Lemos (+175), who is looking to extend her unblemished record in UFC women’s strawweight action to 6-0.

Andrade: Need To Knows
  • Andrade makes her return to strawweight after fighting three times as a flyweight, with her sole defeat during that stretch coming against Valentina Shevchenko in their battle for the UFC women’s flyweight crown at UFC 261.
  • “Bate Estaca” endured feast and famine during her previous 10-fight stint in the UFC women’s flyweight division. Andrade claimed victory in seven of those contests, including an impressive second-round TKO win over Rose Namajunas at UFC 237 to claim the title. However, she was subsequently outclassed in her first title defense against Weili Zhang, and came out on the wrong end of a split decision in her rematch with “Thug Rose” at UFC 251.
  • Well known for her formidable abilities as a striker, landing an impressive average of 6.24 significant strikes per minute, Andrade is equally capable on the mat, averaging a respectable 2.90 takedowns per 15 minutes.
  • While standing just five-foot-two, the 30-year-old possesses deceiving strength, which she demonstrated in the slam she used in her win over Thug Rose, and a vicious ground-and-pound game.
  • Andrade’s last three fights were Cynthia Calvillo (win – TKO punches), Valentina Shevchenko (loss – TKO elbows) and Katlyn Chookagian (win – TKO body punches).
Lemos: Need To Knows
  • Amanda Lemos has emerged as a rising star in the UFC women’s strawweight division during her current 5-0 run, and is now pegged as the No. 10 contender. However, her lone clash with a ranked opponent came last time out in her split-decision win over Angela Hill.
  • Lemos has produced steady results when fighting at the UFC Apex, going undefeated in each of her previous four appearances, and earned her first career Fight of the Night bonus with her victory over Hill.
  • Currently sporting a professional record of 11-1, Lemos has finished opponents on nine occasions, including a trio of dominating Sportsbook-round TKO wins since moving to strawweight.
  • Not surprisingly, the 34-year-old southpaw is an accomplished striker, landing an average of 5.35 significant strikes per minute. However, Lemos also takes a lot of punishment, absorbing 4.67 significant strikes per minute.
  • Lemos has a pair of submission wins to her credit. But while she is not generally known for her ground game, she successfully defends against takedowns at an 87 percent rate.
  • Lemos’ last three fights were Angela Hill (win – split decision), Montserrat Ruiz (win – TKO punches) and Lívia Renata Souza (win – TKO punches).

Prediction: Jessica Andrade (-220); UNDER 2.5 rounds (+130)

Clay Guida vs Claudio Puelles Odds & Pick

Clay Guida vs Claudio Puelles Betting Odds
Clay Guida-115
Claudio Puelles-115

Turning 40 has not slowed down Clay Guida (-115), who will make his fourth appearance in the Octagon in 14 months when he battles Claudio Puelles (-115) in Saturday’s co-main event. Guida earned his first bonus in almost seven years with his victory over Leonardo Santos last time out, while Puelles aims to extend his win streak to five fights.

Guida: Need To Knows
  • Winning streaks have eluded Guida in recent years. “The Carpenter” has tallied consecutive victories on just one occasion while going 8-10 over his past 18 contests, with four of his past seven defeats coming by submission.
  • An accomplished wrestler from a very young age, Guida has seen 14 of his 37 career wins come by submission. However, he has also regularly gone the distance with seven of his past nine wins coming by decision.
  • Standing just five-foot-seven, Guida is often at a reach disadvantage when facing taller opponents, which is reflected in his 34 percent striking accuracy. However, opponents must be constantly prepared to defend against takedown attempts, with Guida averaging 3.26 per 15 minutes.
  • Guida’s last three fights were Leonardo Santos (win – submission), Mark Madsen (loss – split decision) and Michael Johnson (win – unanimous decision).
Puelles: Need To Knows
  • Unlike Guida, Puelles is still in the early years of his pro MMA career. The 24-year-old sports a pro MMA record of 11-2 and is undefeated since falling to Martin Bravo in his UFC debut at Ultimate Fighter Latin America 3 Finale: dos Anjos vs Ferguson.
  • “El Niño” earned a Performance of the Night bonus in his Fight Night debut for his third-round submission win over Felipe Silva.
  • While enjoying impressive height at an even six feet, Puelles began training in Muay Thai at an early age. But he has emerged as an effective grappler, demonstrated by his six career wins by submission.
  • Puelles’ last three fights were Chris Gruetzemacher (win – submission), Jordan Leavitt (win – unanimous decision) and Marcos Mariano (win – unanimous decision).

Prediction: Claudio Puelles (-115)

Lando Vannata vs Charles Jourdain Odds & Pick

Lando Vannata vs Charles Jourdain Betting Odds
Lando Vannata -105
Charles Jourdain-125

Lando Vannata (-105) aims to build on his narrow victory over Mike Grundy in his UFC featherweight debut when he battles Charles Jourdain (-125), who looks to tally consecutive wins for the first time in eight UFC contests.

Vanatta: Need To Knows
  • Hard-fought battles have become Vanatta’s calling card since joining the UFC six years ago. “Groovy” has seen eight of his past nine fights settled by the judges, earning just two wins and two draws over that stretch.
  • While Vanatta is a longtime wrestler who briefly competed in NCAA Division I, he sports a takedown average of just 1.12 per 15 minutes, and a middling takedown defence of only 68 percent.
  • Sporting an impressive 71-inch reach, Vanatta has produced mixed results as a striker, but was particularly effective in his split-decision win over Grundy, landing over 5.5 significant strikes per minute.
  • Vanatta’s last three fights were Mike Grundy (win – split decision), Bobby Green (loss – unanimous decision) and Yancy Medeiros (win – unanimous decision).
Jourdain: Need To Knows
  • Consistency has eluded Jourdain since he joined the UFC, with the 26-year-old Montreal native posting just three wins in seven Octagon appearances. Overall, Jourdain sports a professional record of 12-4-1, with eight of his victories coming by KO or TKO.
  • Jourdain is an accomplished striker. He demonstrated that ability last time out by outpunching Andre Ewell by a wide 150-59 margin and connecting on 60 percent of significant strikes.
  • While Jourdain is not considered a major takedown threat, his ability on the mat should not be underestimated. The 26-year-old has three submission wins to his credit. In addition, he has racked up double-digit significant strike totals and maintained mat control for over two minutes in three of his past four fights.
  • Jourdain’s last three fights were Andre Ewell (win – unanimous decision), Julian Erosa (loss – submission) and Marcelo Rojo (win – TKO punches).

Prediction: Charles Jourdain (-125)
