Montana De La Rosa Betting Preview

De La Rosa is currently on a two-fight losing streak as she aims to snap that here. Her recent defeat was at the hands of Tatiana Suarez by a second round guillotine choke submission back at UFC Fight Night 220 in February earlier this year.

With a track record showcasing a remarkable total of 12 victories, including one knockout, eight submissions, and three decisions, she has made her mark in the fighting world. Notably, two of her successes wrapped up in the first round, but she has also faced five defeats by way of decisions.

Her striking accuracy is locked in at 38 percent, while her takedowns hit the mark with a 32 percent success rate. Maintaining an average of 2.47 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.06, her margin for error remains exceptionally slender, tilting slightly toward the negative side.

De La Rosa consistently thwarts significant strikes with a 42 percent success rate and successfully defends against takedowns at 65 percent. Additionally, she initiates 1.94 takedowns and makes 0.90 submission attempts in every action-packed 15 minutes.

JJ Aldrich Betting Preview

Aldrich has gone 1-2 in her last three fights, but was recently able to break her two-fight losing streak. Her recent battle was a second round TKO over Na Liang at UFC Fight Night 225 in August a few months back.

On her resume, you will find an impressive track record of 12 victories, consisting of three explosive knockouts and nine hard-fought decisions. Notably, all three of those knockouts have occurred in the very first round, while half of her six losses have been determined by decision.

She proudly touts a striking accuracy of 47 percent and boasts a 25 percent success rate in executing takedowns. Her offensive output is notable, with an average of 4.02 significant strikes per minute, but she absorbs 4.54, suggesting a somewhat challenging statistic that could influence her performance in the upcoming bout.

When it comes to defense, her stats shine with a 60 percent success rate against significant strikes and a 66 percent success rate against takedowns. However, her focus on ground fighting is limited, with an average of only 0.77 takedown attempts per 15 minutes of fight time.
