Okay, then: 2020 continues to be Feast or Famine for WMMA fans. This week's UFC 253 card features ONLY ONE WMMA FIGHT!
Thank goodness, though, that it's on the Main Card, so you get ONE CHICK FIGHT INCLUDED WHEN YOU SHELL OUT $65 (or whatever the price is when you combine your PPV buy with your ESPN+ cost)!
- #7 Ketlen Vieira vs. #13 Sijara Eubanks. "Sarge" makes a quick turnaround this week after absolutely destroying #15 Julia Avila in a 29-27 X 3 UD thriller less than 2 weeks ago! In 15 minutes of Chick-on-Chick violence, Sijara managed to land 53 significant strikes. That's like 3 strikes per minute! Hey, I'm not squeamish about violence, but whoa, dial back the brutality please, Sarge! And Vieira is no stranger to violence, of course: She got crushed in her most recent fight, a first round KO loss. Ketlen is probably hoping for yet another split decision win this week to go with the 2 she already has in UFC.
- Sijara just signed a new UFC contract, saying she's making "almost twice" what she was previously paid. Her last reported pay: 33/33 show/win.
- In a combined 11 UFC fights, these 2 gals have a total of one post-fight bonus.
- Under "Championships and Accomplishments," Wikipedia says the only thing notable about Vieira is that she won the "Mr. Cage Bantamweight Championship." Who knew!?!
- Vieira is a -190 favorite in this fight, with Eubanks at +165. "Fight goes to decision" is favored at -300. "Eubanks wins inside the distance" might be a tasty underdog play at +500.... ha ha j/k.....
