As I said before since MMA is kinda what got me into this business I like to go all out with the write-ups, bets, must-have stuff like that. With that being said these are my bets for UFC 257.
Sara Mcmann -135 – I think Mcmann will just be a little too much for Pena. Throughout Pena’s career, she has struggled against good fighters most of her wins are against average at best fighters. Sara Mcmann has fought some of the best in the best and either won or gave them very good fights. On top of this fact, Mcmann averages 4.51 takedowns per fight and Pena has a 28% takedown defense. I think Mcmann will be able to get her down and control her enough to either get a submission victory or a win via decision.
Brad Tavares -135 – As I explained in my breakdown I think this is a pretty easy win for Tavares. If you look at Tavares’s career he has only lost to some of the best of the best much like Mcmann. Carlos Jr just simply is not on his level when it comes to fighting and just does not do enough offensive wise to win this fight. Tavares lands more strikes per minute and has a good takedown defense as well which is on or Carlos Jr’s biggest weapons. Well, I think there is a good chance this fight goes to the dec I just don’t see a way personally that Tavares loses this fight.
