A trio of new women’s bouts have been announced for upcoming events. Here are the fights, along with my first ideas on these.
Emily Whitmire vs. Amanda Ribas, UFC on ESPN 3
A fascinating women’s strawweight bout between Emily Whitmire and Amanda Ribas has been scheduled for UFC on ESPN 3, occurring June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Combate broke the information. Whitmire (4-2) is 2-1 in the UFC and recently needed just 61 minutes to submit Aleksandra Albu at a breakout performance that set a UFC women’s strawweight document for quickest submission win. Ribas (6-1) was recently cleared by USADA after sitting out two years due to a tainted supplement and will seem to jump back into the win column for the first time since 2016. Given the very long layoff for Ribas and the current success of Whitmire within the Octagon, start looking for Whitmire to be a solid gaming preferred heading into this bout.
Angela Hill vs. Yan Xiaonan, UFC 238
Due to an injury to Wu Yanan, Angela Hill has agreed to step on short notice when she chooses on Yan Xiaonan in UFC 238, which is set for June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. ESPN broke the news. Hill (9-6) recently picked up a decision win over Jodie Esquibel to snap a two-fight win series and will fight again less than six weeks later here against Xiaonan. It has been a busy start to 2019 for Hill, who is fighting for the third time in four months if she make it to this fight. Overall Hill is 4-6 at the Octagon in two distinct stints with the advertising. Xiaonan (10-1, 1 NC) is riding a nine-fight unbeaten series and is 3-0 complete from the UFC with three of her wins coming from choice. This should be a competitive fight but given the level of competition she has fought and how active she has been so far in 2019, anticipate Hill to be favored in this one.
Claudia Gadelha vs. Randa Markos, UFC 239
Two of the best female strawweights in the world at set to meet at UFC 239 as Claudia Gadelha matches Randa Markos. The card takes place July 6 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gadelha (16-4) is astonishingly only 6-4 from the UFC and is coming from a surprising decision reduction to Nina Ansaroff. After among the most feared women’s strawweights about the UFC roster, Gadelha has struggled in the last few years and appears to be on the decrease at age 30 as each of the wars she’s been in have caught around her. Markos (9-6, 1 NC) is 5-5-1 from the UFC and lately picked up her most remarkable win yet, a first-round submission success over Angela Hill. Markos has battled consistency issues within the Octagon and has yet to stand up a win series of over one fight in a row, but the victory over Hill might be a sign that she has finally figured out things. Considering Gadelha always gets lots of respect from bettors I do expect her to be favored here, however, Markos is a live dog in this fight.
