Katlyn Chookagian vs. Amanda Ribas
UFC Women’s Flyweight Main Card Bout
Saturday, May 14, 2022 – 10:05 PM UFC Apex
Chookagian vs. Ribas Betting Pick Analysis
Katlyn Chookagian (17-4-0) is one of the most underrated competitors within the women’s 125 lb weight class. Since losing a championship bout with Valentina Shevchenko, “Blonde Fighter” has continued her evolution in the sport and has significant victories over Valentina’s sister (Antonina Shevchenko), Cynthia Calvillo, Viviane Araujo, and Jennifer Maia.
The aforementioned names that Chookagian has defeated in recent years have all been pitted as title contenders or are former title challengers. Chookagian is no joke, and it's time we realize she could earn a second title shot with the performances she’s delivered.

The lovable Amanda Ribas (11-2-0) has been gifted in facing the No.2 ranked women’s flyweight in Chookagian. This weekend, a significant victory could undoubtedly position the Brazilian native to become a title contender.
Ribas is currently ranked No.10, so we must credit Chookagian for taking this bout. Although everyone wants to support the Brazilian and her likable personality she’s facing a severe rise in the level of competition.
UFC Vegas 54 Parlay Prediction
Ribas’ path to victory would be to initiate a grappling offense throughout all three rounds, but the swagger of Chookagian’s boxing and notable kicks should be too much.
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review favor Chookagian, and whilst I agree with the available odds, the safer play points towards this contest reaching the judge’s scorecards. I expect Chookagian to stick and move from the outside and win all three rounds by utilizing her size, fight IQ, and point-scoring attributes.
Virna Jandiroba vs. Angela Hill
UFC Women's Strawweight Preliminary Card Bout
Saturday, May 30, 2022 - 10:05 PM at UFC Apex
Jandiroba vs. Hill Betting Pick Analysis
Angela Hill (13-11-0) will make her 20th walk to the UFC octagon on Saturday evening, as it’s safe to say she is a veteran of the sport. Aged 37, Hill hasn’t owned the most positive record in recent years, but we can’t deny the level of competition she’s faced, and her losses aren’t a clear reflection of what a talented striker she is.
Virma Jandiroba (17-3-0) owns a similar level of professional experience as Hill but has only competed at the highest level since 2019. With a basic striking level, Jandiroba’s key skillset is all about her jiu-jitsu offense. Still, with a 3-3 UFC record, she’s notably lost when facing opponents inside the top 15 rankings.
UFC in Vegas 54 Parlay Prediction
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review support Jandiroba as the betting favorite, and this doesn’t come as a surprise when opinions are naturally based on Hill’s recent record.
With that said, the durability of Hill has been solid throughout her entire career. Hill's jabs and forward pressure position her as a viable underdog, in my opinion – especially when watching Jandiroba lose a pressure battle to Ribas last time out. Still, the fight reaching the judge’s scorecards is an undeniable play when “Overkill” is in the cage.
