Name: Randa Markos
Opponent: Claudia Gadelha
Odds: +225 (bet $100 to win $225)
Markos’s career has largely been up and down. She’s lost some fights that seemed to be right in her hand and she’s snatched victory from the jaws of defeat on more than one occasion.
The one thing that is constant is that she can wrestle. In every fight over the last two years, Markos has scored a takedown. This is generally something you look for in an underdog, as it allows them to grind out a decision (much the way Vinc Pichel did last weekend). To add to all of that, Claudia Gadelha is only successful at stuffing 58% of takedowns that come her way. Markos might just need a little good fortune getting it to the mat to come out with a judges’ decision here.
