Isis Verbeek Betting Preview
Verbeek has amassed five consecutive victories after losing her debut professional bout back in 2018. Her most recent success was a unanimous decision against Melissa Oddesa Parker back in July of last year.
She has accumulated five wins on her fighting resume that are one knockout, one submission, and three decisions. Out of her losses, one has come by decision.
“Fight Queen” has moved around various fighting organizations throughout her career. While she has experienced various kickboxing and shoot boxing bouts, her most notable MMA exposure has been 1-1 in the Invicta Fighting Championships.
Verbeek has some solid experience so far, but this will be her biggest test yet. She is also currently ranked as the 62
best female strawweight fighter in the world.
Josefine Knutsson Betting Preview
Knutsson has gone 5-0 in her professional bouts so far and has shown no signs of slowing down. Her most recent success was a split decision against Jacinta Austin back in February earlier this year.
Of her five victories, one has been a knockout and the other four are decisions. She nearly landed a first round finish in her knockout victory, so she is likely due any day for one.
“Little Thunder” also has solid kickboxing skills but has primarily battled under the Fight Club Rush promotion, going 3-0 against solid competition. This will be another good test, especially against another kickboxing opponent.
Knutsson is currently ranked as the 81
best female strawweight in the world. This is a great opportunity to earn a contract and improve her overall rank.
