Holm vs Pennington 2 Prediction
Holly Holm has won the womens bantamweight title since her first fight with Pennington. Since then “The Preachers Daughter” went on a three-fight losing skid then picked up some notable wins over Bethe Correia and Megan Anderson. Holm then came up short against Amanda Nunes by getting finished by strikes for the first time in her career.
Raquel Pennington has an unflattering UFC record of 10-7, and hasn’t shown much improvement since their first bout. This is still Pennington’s fight to prove the doubters wrong. She will have to stick and move against an elite kickboxer like Holly but it’s achievable for the veteran UFC fighter.
In the end expect Holly Holm to pull of the victory here and get the job done within the distance. What’s that.. another title shot for Holly?
Pick: Holm by TKO
