Julia Dorny Betting Preview

Dorny is coming off of her first career defeat, which was a first round TKO against Jeslen Mishelle back at the Professional Fighters League Challenger Series 3 in March of last year. After having positive momentum heading into that fight, she was disappointed with the outcome.

In both of her wins, she has won each of them by knockout. Her first career win resulted in a first round finish, which was a knockout over Miriam Santana.

She has a few battles under her belt since turning professional in 2019, which have been solid competitive matches. Prior to that, she went 10-5 in amateur MMA with some quality battles.

Dorny is currently ranked as the 66th best female pound for pound fighter in Western Europe. She also has pound for pound rankings in other parts of the world, such as ninth-best in Germany and 28th-best in the Middle East.

Riley Martinez Betting Preview

Martinez has won her first two battles to start her career off on a good note. Her recent success was a first round TKO over Kayla Yontef back at Front Street Fights 23 in April of last year.

Her two wins on her resume are composed of one knockout and one submission. In addition, both of her wins so far have resulted in first round finishes.

“Rad” has been a professional fighter since 2021, with just the two bouts to date. She previously went 5-2 in amateur MMA, with a few of them being quality battles.

In just her two professional bouts, she currently ranks 96th in the United States for best female pound for pound fighter. She also ranks pound for pound in other locations in the US, such as first in Idaho, first in Montana, and 33rd for the US West.
