Tonight UFC 206 see’s a major matchup for the strawweight division when Canadian veteran and former title challenger Valerie Letourneau takes on undefeated newcomer Viviane Pereira.
MMA female stars have predicted the outcome for tonight’s UFC fight. On the panel is Number 5 Lightweight in the world Gabrielle Holloway, Invicta FC star Lacey Shuckman, top 135lb prospect Serena DeJesus “Southpaw” and undefeated 125lb contender Mabelly Lima.
Valerie ‘Trouble’ Letourneau (8-5-0) VS Viviane ‘Sucuri’ Pereira (11-0-0)
Gabrielle: I’m saying Pereira by TKO in the 2nd round. If Pereira doesn’t get the TKO Letourneau by decision.
Lacey: I’m going Letourneau for her overall game.
Serena: I think Viviane has a lot to prove in the UFC but i don’t think it’s a tall order for her. She’s a good striker and isn’t a slouch by any means. I think she will do well against Letourneau especially given the weight troubles that Letourneau has been finding herself in lately but let’s not forget that Valerie gave a good challenge to Joanna. Anything can happen really but I got a funny feeling Viviane will win tonight.
Mabelly: I believe that Viviane will make a good presentation, she is an athlete who has been very determined and focused on her goal. I’m grateful for this victory today in her UFC debut. Ceará will be well represented. She will get the knockout!
3 for Pereira. 1 for Letourneau.
