Amanda Nunes vs. Julianna Peña
UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship Bout
Saturday, December 11, 2021 – at T-Mobile Arena
Amanda Nunes vs. Juliana Peña Betting Pick Analysis
Amanda Nunes (21-4-0) has already paid her dues and is one of MMA's most dominant fighters ever to do it. She's a two-division champion that's basically cleared out the competition, and the difficult task for the UFC is finding her a worthy opponent.
In-step Juliana Peña (10-4-0). Is she worthy? I hate to be brutally honest, but no, she isn't. Peña went on record and said, "Well, Amanda hasn't fought me", and she's correct. But the reigning, defending G.O.A.T has dominated every other woman on the roster; now it's your turn Peña.
UFC 269 Parlay Prediction
Peña's striking isn't desirable, she's won the majority of her bouts by utilizing her grappling skill set, which is good, but it's not elite.
To simplify any long-winded breakdown, Nunes will outclass Peña in every facet of the game.
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review opened with Nunes as the heavy favorite, and the price has continued to get worst ever since. We're reaching -1000 on the moneyline, which in reality, is entirely viable.
However, Peña doesn't stand a chance of overpowering and out-grappling Nunes with the larger frame. I can visualize this fight remaining on the feet until Nunes finds a flurry of strikes that will cause the referee to intervene.
Taking Nunes to win inside the distance raises our betting odds considerably, and across twenty-five minutes, I highly doubt the challenger can withstand the champions onslaught.

Sean O'Malley vs. Raulian Paiva
UFC Bantamweight Main Card Bout
Saturday, December 11, 2021 - at T-Mobile Arena
Sean O'Malley vs. Raulian Paiva Betting Pick Analysis
Sean O'Malley (14-1-0) is the most famous martial artist who isn't ranked within the top-10 of his division. Why? A boisterous personality, a keen eye for marketing, and a fighting style that's wowed the crowd since his arrival to the UFC in 2017.
Raulian Paiva (21-3-0) has undoubtedly been undervalued since his promotional debut, and his most notable attribute must be his durability and toughness. Most expect Paiva to implement a grappling game plan and hunt for a submission, but he's surprisingly stood toe-to-toe with some of the bantamweights' most fierce strikers.
UFC 269 Parlay Prediction
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review favor "Sugar" Sean O'Malley, and I'm in complete agreement. Paiva has shown some glaring holes in his striking defense, and the truth is, he didn't deserve a decision victory versus Kyler Phillips during his last outing.
As a good friend of Phillips, I expect a sense of revenge is on O'Malley's mind. We need to accept that Paiva will be one of the top fighters; however, matching the striking ability of O'Malley is difficult.
Paiva's striking defense is a huge worry, with O'Malley's perfectly timed and precise striking. His ability to pivot, alternate angles, striking off his back foot whilst delivering a wide variety of strikes is elite and extremely impressive. And that's without mentioning his tremendous size advantage over the bantamweight division; just under 6 feet tall with a long reach is a dangerous aspect when compiled with his elite striking offense.
I expect O'Malley to finish Paiva via KO or TKO, but to be on the safe side, we'll close our parlay out with a "Sugar" moneyline.
