Montserrat Ruiz Betting Preview
Ruiz is coming off of a first round TKO defeat against Amanda Lemos back in July of 2021. This snapped her previous two-fight winning streak, making her 2-2 in her last four fights since 2018.
Her fighting resume shows that she has 10 wins that consists of three knockouts, two submissions, and five decisions. Two of her 10 wins have resulted in a first round finish and she has one loss each by knockout and decision.
“Conejo” has a striking accuracy of 38 percent and a takedown accuracy of 80 percent. She lands 1.16 significant strikes a minute while taking on 2.44. This is a fairly low output and needs to be more aggressive.
Her defense against significant strikes is at 51 percent but nothing for a takedown defense. She also averages 3.85 takedowns per 15 minutes of fight time.
Jaqueline Amorim Betting Preview
Amorim is coming off of her first career loss, which was a unanimous decision against Sam Hughes back in April of this year. This snapped her previous six fight win streak, spanning back to 2020.
Her fighting resume shows that she has six wins that consists of one knockout and five submissions. All six of her victories have resulted in a first round finish.
She has a striking accuracy of 23 percent and a takedown accuracy of 20 percent. She lands 0.80 significant strikes a minute while taking on 2.00. With only one UFC fight on her resume, this will likely improve over time.
Her defense against significant strikes is at 56 percent but nothing yet for a takedown defense. She also averages 2.00 takedowns per 15 minutes of fight time.
Game Odds, Series Trends and Free Pick
The following moneyline from MyBookie reveals that Jaqueline Amorim is a moderate favorite to win this showdown. Consider including Amorim in a parlay to enhance your odds alongside other fights taking place during the event.
Montserrat Ruiz: +195
Jaqueline Amorim: -238
*odds are subject to changes
Ruiz only has one more battle under belt in the UFC, which does not really set her apart by looking at her stats. However, both fighters are great at fighting on the ground and do not really engage that much in striking. Amorim is slightly more appealing here, but must be aggressive throughout the entire fight on the ground.
Final Pick: Take Jaqueline Amorim to Win at -238
