Tonight, Jon Jones and Thiago Santos meet for the bantamweight title at UFC 239. Who wins?

I think Holm does pretty well with some of her striking but that Nunes will be better and land more devastating shots. Holm’s striking is obviously very good but Nunes is on a different level, I think. I think her power leads the way to her victory, which I think will be a TKO stoppage late in the 4th round.

How can you pick against Amanda Nunes after watching her destroy Cris Cyborg in her last fight? You can’t. Holm is a very technical striker and will likely come in with a strong gameplan. Nunes though is a buzzsaw and will slice right through that gameplan. So no matter the opponent or how prepared she is, I’m picking Nunes by TKO.

Amanda will destroy Holm and hopefully Holm retires. Holly Holm is one of the least deserving MMA fighters in history yet she is gifted another title shot. I want Holly’s face, will, and heart broken.

In general, it seems that Holm does better when her opponent os very aggressive. It is hard to come across a more aggressive fighter than Amanda Nunes. With that said, I just think Nunes is on roll like few have ever been on. Unless tonight is just “one of those nights” I do not see anything here but a Nunes victory.
