Cynthia Calvillo vs. Nina Nunes Prediction

Live from San Diego California, The UFC hopes to make a mark on the beach and at the ticket counters, with tantalizing matchup after tantalizing matchup given out to the betting public and potential investor alike. I am confident in saying this because the broadcast is going to be shown on the main ESPN channel, insinuating the event is going to have a ton of eyeballs and traffic from many different sides no matter which way you slice it. While most of the card is for all intensive purposes a banger, some other fights would be more akin to restroom breaks above all else.

The clash of Cynthia Calvillo versus Nina Nunes is, unfortunately, one of those bouts, however, but I believe one side on the bill packs a considerably more prevalent amount of value than the other. Cynthia Calvillo is a Chicana from San Jose fighting out of AKA by way of team Alpha MMA in Sacramento. In her heyday she was a vivacious grappler, looking for level changes and usually getting it amongst the bottom of the barrel in the strawweight division. She has since moved over to 125, trading wins and losses but mostly suffering defeat, riding a 3-fight inadequate streak into this contest. 

Nina Nunes formerly known as Nina Ansaroff is a striker who's best known for being the spouse of Amanda Nunes, but also possessing relatively adequate takedown defense, a feat unheard of during her prime years. Women's MMA has long since evolved, however, and now her weird flex of anti-grappling is as much of a relic of the past as she is. I believe Cynthia Calvillo is going to steamroll Nina Nunes here for all intensive purposes. The fact of the matter is Nunes is coming off of childbirth for quite some time, and simply does not have the will of fire she once had before she met up with her cash cow Amanda.

I believe while Calvillo also has a somewhat negative trajectory going forward as well, she should be able to implement her grappling will early and often, taking her down to the mat repeatedly and then securing a choke in the later rounds or a unanimous decision victory. Give me Cynthia Calvillo moneyline like I need air.
