Talita Alencar Betting Preview

Alencar is riding an impressive four-fight winning streak as she gears up for this event. One of her notable victories includes a unanimous decision win over Kelsey Arnesen at Legacy Fighting Alliance 156 in April 2023.

In her relatively brief career, she has secured four wins, consisting of three submission victories and one decision. Remarkably, two of these wins were accomplished with first-round finishes.

“The Problem Child” has been active since 2017 with professional grappling matches in the IBJJF World Jiu-Jitsu Championship. Her most notable MMA success has been with Titan Fighting Championship, where she is 3-0.

She currently holds the 89th spot in the rankings for the best women’s strawweight fighter in the world. She has a great chance to put her grappling on display on a big stage. 

Stephanie Luciano Betting Preview

Luciano clinched victories in her two most recent bouts leading up to this occasion. Her latest triumph was a unanimous decision against Karina Aryadne during Jungle Fight 112 in November of the previous year.

Among her five wins, she boasts two knockouts and three decisions. Notably, she has not secured any first-round finishes in her career thus far, and she has suffered one loss by decision.

She has battled against quality competition so far and has another chance to extend her career. She has one bout under the LFA, which was a solid showing of her skills.

She is currently ranked as the 40th best Brazil women’s pound for pound fighter. This will be put to the test to see if she is ready for a jump in her career.

Luciano has arguably fought better opponents when looking at MMA records alone, so she will need to stop this fight with authority if she wants to succeed. However, Alencar is an animal on the ground and will likely keep the fight there.
