Tainara Lisboa Betting Preview

Lisboa is currently aiming to add onto her four-fight win streak with another quality win here. Her recent success turned into a third round rear-naked choke submission against Jessica-Rose Clark back at UFC on ABC 4 in May earlier this year.

She has compiled six wins on her resume, with three each coming by knockout and submission. Among those wins, four have resulted in first round finishes. She also has one loss each by submission and decision.

"Thai Panther" has one bout so far in the UFC, but has managed to showcase a striking accuracy at 51 percent and a takedown accuracy at 50 percent. She also delivered 2.93 significant strikes each minute of combat and absorbed 1.81, leaving a favorable ratio.

Her defense was solid against significant strikes, coming in at 57 percent. Against takedowns, she was great at defending at 86 percent. She now averages 1.05 takedowns and 1.05 submissions per 15 minutes of action.

Ravena Oliveira Betting Preview

Oliveira has won her last seven fights after starting her career off with a draw and a loss. Her previous victory was a third round knockout over Simone da Silva back at Liberty Kombat Champion 5 in August a few months back.

Her fighting resume is composed of seven wins consisting of six knockouts and one submission. Four of these wins have resulted in first round triumphs. In addition, her only defeat was a submission.

"Kenoudy” will be making her debut in the UFC. The only problem with her matchup in this fight is that she is going up against the second fighter in her career with a winning record. All previous battles were against newcomers to the MMA or one that only had a loss under her belt.

Oliveira currently ranks as the 23rd best Brazilian pound for pound women’s fighter. While that is impressive, she will need a little more than that to succeed here.
