Date & Time: Friday January 12, 2018
This week has been a decent week for betting on MMA and we are continuing to find some value to play to build those bankrolls. Invicta FC is back this week from Lemoore, California for Invicta FC 25. You can watch this event on UFC Fight Pass starting on Thursday Night at 8:00 PM ET.
Sarah Kaufman vs. Pannie Kianzad
The feature fight that we will highlight from this event is the main event between Sarah Kaufman and Pannie Kianzad. Sarah Kaufman is fighting to get herself back to the UFC after spending some time there over the last few years. She is 18-4 overall and is coming off a win 10 months ago against Jessica Rose-Clark, who will be fighting in the UFC in her second fight, on Sunday. Kaufman went 1-2 in the UFC not including her time in Strikeforce.
During her time in Strikeforce, Kaufman had wins over the likes of UFC veterans Miesha Tate, Alexis Davis, Leslie Smith, Liz Carmouche, Roxanne Modafferi, Shayna Baszler and Valerie Letourneau. Her 2 losses outside the UFC were against Marloes Coenen and against Ronda Rousey for the Strikeforce Bantamweight Championship. Her weakness is without a doubt her grappling, where she has been submitted 3 out of her 4 losses
Kaufman will be facing Pannie Kianzad from Iran. Kianzad started out her career 8-0 and there was a lot of hype behind her. She then ran into back to back losses against Tonya Evinger by 2nd Rd KO and Raquel Pa’aluhi by 1st Rd Submission. Kianzad has taken 1 year off from the cage and will now return on Saturday Night at Invicta FC 27. Kianzad has 3 wins by KO and the remaining 5 wins came by decision.
Sarah Kaufman is truly a much stronger caliber fighter than Kianzad and I have ran this fight through various ways it can happen and none of them leave me with an option for Kianzad winning this fight. Kaufman is just too experienced and has literally fought the best of the best over the years. This should be a walk in the park for Kaufman and she should be able to win this one before the final bell.
