UFC Fight Night returns from Las Vegas with Jessica Andrade vs. Erin Blanchfield as the main event. Where is the value in this fight? Lightning Locks breaks it down.

Jessica Andrade vs. Erin Blanchfield Prediction: Where's the Value in This UFC Fight Night Main Event?

This Saturday the UFC sees a triumphant return to not just the Mike Tyson of women’s flyweight in Jessica Andrade but the coldblooded killer from New Jersey Erin Blanchfield in her very first main event showing with the organization. “Bate Estaca” is fresh off the heels of her blistering unanimous decision victory over the not-so-lucky Lauren Murphy. Where she absolutely decimated the recovering addict from pillar to post during the January PPV card in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil last month. ”Coldblooded” is coming into the spotlight and fray a near-perfect 10-1, with the sole blemish being a robbery against octagon mainstay Tracy Cortez.

Jessica Andrade vs. Erin Blanchfield Prediction

While not exhibiting the same veracity in the punching department as her Brazilian counterpart, what Blanchfield brings to the table instead is an ungodly, unrelenting black belt-inspired, conducive grappling prowess. When you’re getting your certification in ground fighting through Sliver Fox BJJ, you just know the general consensus is going to be a wrap once the match hits the floor.

While Andrade also possesses a blackbelt, her Wanderlei Silva Esque style of swinging mongoloid hooks on top of her quite tiny stature has caused the former champion to get wet blanketed during certain key matchups, like as was the particular case during her run-in with Valentina Schvechenko. She was taken down at will until ultimately succumbing to strikes inside of the second round. 

Although I would find it rather insane and downright incredible if Blanchfield were to replicate such success without the proper striking acumen, ultimately I see the fight playing out much closer due to the glaring holes in their games. Each competitor will be tentative but nevertheless eager to exploit during the course of the entire mixed martial arts bout. This is why I am playing the over 1.5 rounds as I believe the stout grappling of Blanchfield will neutralize Andrade’s early offensive barrage, at least until the bout goes down the stretch.
