Holly Holm is best known for ending the incredible streak of Ronda Rousey and taking the belt from the first and at the time only women to hold it. Since then the Preacher’s Daughter has only won 2 of her 6 UFC fights and they were over a young prospect who isn't ready or polished yet and a bottom tier fighter. As much as I love Holley she is slipping and Nunes is in the best form of her career.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Amanda Nunes has landed more significant strikes than her opponents in each of her last 8 fights.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;She won all 8 of those bouts, out-landing her opponents a combined 371-180 and finishing 6 of them &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UFC239?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UFC239&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— MMA By The Numbers (@NumbersMMA) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/NumbersMMA/status/1146058732788420609?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;2 de julho de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>Amanda will have a speed and power advantage over Holly and the only thing Holly can hope to do is weather the storm. If Holly can make this a 25 minute technical kick boxing match and mix in some take downs then she might have a shot but its a LONG shot. Amanda’s footwork is amazing and she will be able to dart in and land and get out safely before Holly is able to get her kicking game going. I expect Nunes to do what she does best and land with big shots early and often. As long as Nunes doesnt gas herself out looking for a finish she can win this thing basically any way she wants to. She can win a decision and more accurately and harder over the course of the fight or win by brutal KO like she is most known to do. I am all team Lioness here and <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Picks">I like using her in parlays</a> if you don't feel like playing her straight.</p>
