Cyborg vs Holly Holm
We watch Cyborg (-360) since she’s made a profession from ruining her enemies. Cyborg has always been among the most aggressive fighters in the industry but the prior Invicta featherweight champion has learned to exploit that thanks to her time with Rafael Cordeiro. The actual meat to her match is your jab, as Cyborg will throw the jab out before a competitor feels the need to fire back then she will counter with quick, fight-ending intentions.
Cyborg is a huge fighter that possesses huge power for tough clinch conflicts — although she’s also technically well served in this region too. Her normal balance and core power make takedown attempts typically ineffective.
Holly Holm (+270) is at her best when she can dictate the distance and speed of the struggle. The former professional fighter is great at picking away at her opponent from a distance thanks to her clean, smooth footwork. At this distance,”The Preacher’s Daughter” will throw a continuous diet of lefts and await her opportunity to counter. Though boxing was her first game, Holm has done a great job adding kicks to her repertoire with the notorious Jackson-Wink oblique kick playing an important role. When a fight becomes dirty or she attempts to move forward, the former bantamweight champion is much more hittable.
Concerning grappling, Holm is solid from the clinch and possesses great takedown defense. But if an opponent can get Holm to the mat, then she doesn’t offer much.
Holm is the stiffest challenge Cyborg has confronted since Gina Carano eight years ago. Holm has the ability to potentially frustrate Cyborg together with her motion and space control. Finally, Cyborg’s aggressive style will neutralize these benefits.
