UFC on ESPN+ 3 Handicapping

The feature fight for UFC on ESPN+ 3 is in the Women's Flyweight Division between Gillian Robertson and Veronica Macedo.  This fight is scheduled for three 5-minute rounds and will take place on the Prelims Card of the event.  

Gillan Robertson enters this fight with a record of 5-3. She is 23-years old and is from Canada.  Robertson trains at American Top Team in Port Saint Lucie, Florida under Din Thomas.  Robertson was a contestant on TUF Season 26 with Team Gaethje.  Robertson has a very strong ground game, with 4 of her 5 wins coming by submission.  She has gone 2-1 in the UFC, with wins over Molly McCann and Emily Whitmire.  Her lone loss in the UFC came in her last fight, where she got caught in an armbar in the first round to undefeated Mayra Bueno Silva.  

Veronica Macedo is 5-2-1 and is coming into this fight with 2 straight losses. She is 23 years old and trains out at the MMA Factory.  Macedo made her UFC debut back in September 2016, as a short notice replacement fighter against Ashlee Evans-Smith.  Macedo was completely manhandled in that fight and lost via 3rd round TKO via elbow strikes.  In her follow up fight, she took on Andrea Lee, who was making her debut in the UFC.  Macedo also lost that fight, this time by Unanimous Decision.  She is now 0-2 in the UFC and her job is probably on the line here, as another loss would mean she was 0-3 in the UFC.  

There are two things that really stand out to me in this fight.  First and foremost, a lot of people are talking about how Macedo is fighting for her job and she has to win.  Yes, while I do agree she is fighting for her job, I don't really think that it makes much of a difference.  Talent wins fights, and in this fight, talent will prevail.  

The second thing that stands out to me is the fact that Robertson has a really good ground game and Macedo has terrible takedown defense. Macedo is really going to struggle with not getting taken down in this fight.  I expect Robertson will have no trouble taking this fight to the ground and eventually submitting Macedo.

Additional UFC on ESPN+ 3 Plays

Thiago Santos over Jan Blachowicz -110 – In the main event, we have a fight of two strikers.  Santos is riding a 3 fight win streak over Jimi Manuwa, Eryk Anders and Kevin Holland. Blachowicz is riding an even longer win streak of 4 fights over Nikita Krylov, Jimi Manuwa, Jared Cannonier and Devin Clark. There is one thing that stands out in this fight…..how will Blachowicz handle Santos's kicks?  Blachowicz is going to try to stand and make this a striking battle……..big mistake!  Santos is the better striker and should get the finish in the fight.  

Daniel Teymur over Chris Fishgold +216 – If you are looking for a very strong underdog, take a look at Daniel Teymur.  Teymur has never really turned out as the prospect he was thought to be. He lost a 3 round unanimous decision to Danny Henry in his debut and then turned around and lost via rear naked choke in the 3rd round to Julio Arce.  Fishgold made his debut a few months ago against Calvin Kattar and looked like a fish out of water, getting KO'd in the 1st round.  I think Teymur stands a very strong chance of doing the same!  I will be playing Teymur as a small play on Saturday Night.
