Tonight UFC Fight Night 102 see’s two women’s fights on the card when undefeated Justine Kish takes on Ashley Yoder in the main event of the prelims. Opening the prelims Brazil’s Juliana Lima takes on JJ Aldrich.
MMA female stars have predicted the outcomes for tonight’s UFC fights. On the panel tonight is Number 5 Lightweight in the world Gabrielle Holloway, Invicta FC star Lacey Shuckman as well as top 135lb prospect, Serena DeJesus “Southpaw”.
Justine Kish (5-0-0) VS Ashley Yoder (5-1-0)
Gabrielle: I’m gonna go with Justine Kish because she stood out to me at the TUF tryouts in Vegas. By unanimous decision although she does have knockout power, so a TKO wouldn’t surprise me either.
Lacey: I’m going to say Kish‘s striking and kickboxing background as well as her size will win it for her.
Serena: I think Yoder vs Kish will be interesting. In normal circumstances I’d be with Kish all the way but with her not fighting for a year cause of her injuries I’m cautious especially with how Yoder pulled the win over Amber Brown in Invicta so I’m thinking that Yoder will edge out.
2 for Kish, 1 for Yoder.
Juliana Lima (8-3-0) VS JJ Aldrich (4-1-0)
Gabrielle: I’ll say Juliana Lima by unanimous decision.
Lacey: I believe Lima’s Jiu-Jitsu is on a different level to Aldrich but could be fun to watch on the feet as long as Lima capitalizes on Aldrich being southpaw. I’m going with Lima.
Serena: Juliana Lima is one of those few girls who was able to go toe to toe with Joanna and go all the way. However JJ Aldrich has been on a tear through the strawweights in Invicta and I think momentum is on her side so I’m going with JJ [Aldrich].
2 for Lima. 1 for Aldrich.
