Potential Winning Pick
Both of these fighters are aiming to place themselves among the best in the women’s bantamweight division. For this fight, are the odds justified here?
Clark has some aggressive numbers offensively and defends decently. She is on a 2 fight skid, so she has not been fortunate enough to close out those last few fights. She is going to have to defend well against Alpar’s aggressive takedowns.
Alpar has some very solid numbers just about everywhere you see. She will definitely be a tough matchup, and I believe she has a very good chance to take this victory in the form of a decision.
