Ernesta Kareckaite Betting Preview

Kareckaite has four undefeated battles and a draw under her belt so far and is aiming for her fifth win. Her recent success was back at Hexagone MMA 6 with a split decision over Laetitia Blot in January to start this year.

Out of her four wins, two have come by knockout and the other two are by decision. Both of her knockout wins have resulted in first round finishes.

She has gone 2-0-1 in HMMA, which has offered valuable experience in her fighting resume. This will be her biggest test yet, but she seems prepared for it.

She has amassed several quality rankings around the world, as she has pound for pound rankings in Eastern Europe (15th), Western Europe (22nd), and France (13th). She has an opportunity to improve upon these, assuming she does well for victory.

Carli Judice Betting Preview

Judice has won her first three fights to start her professional career. Her recent interaction was a first round TKO against Monica Medina in the Bayou Fighting Championships 59 in May of this year. 

With three wins on her resume, they have all been by knockout. In addition, they have also finished in the first round.

“Crispy” has moved to a new fighting league each time she wins somewhere. This will be her fourth promotion that she has fought with, with recent battles coming from Bayou FC and Shogun Fights. In amateur results, she went 4-0 against decent fighters.

Her resume has earned her 63rd best pound for pound women’s fighter in the United States. This will be put to the test against another fighter that is aiming to improve.

This should be a fast paced striking battle with a lot of action. The odds do not give much credit to Kareckaite, as she can definitely end this early or drag it out in her favor. The slightest edge goes to Judice who has landed three straight first round knockout victories.
