Holly Holm vs. Raquel Pennington Predictions
The first battle between the athletes, despite the unanimous victory of the Holm, turned out to be quite equal. Holly simply interrupted her opponent in crucial moments of each of the rounds, which earned her victory more than her competitor. But then Holly was in prime. She did not concede ahead of schedule, went on a series of victories and was eager for the title of Ronda Rosie. Now Holm is a veteran. In addition to changing the weight category, the athlete can not provide almost anything.
Her punches, if Raquel’s coaches correctly prepare the athlete for the fight, Pennington will have to counter, because except for the combination of a hip-body-head Holly has not been able to show anything for a long time. Raquel gradually added, and if inferior, then only to the current champion, and in the battle with Nunez looked extremely dignified, and the former contender for the belt. In our opinion, the underdog victory Raquel Pennington in this fight is more expected.
- Victory Holly Holm – 1.75
