GILLIAN ROBERTSON VS MIRANDA MAVERICK LOWDOWN

Gillian Robertson (9-5) remains as active as ever and she would love to get another three fights in this year like she did in 2019 and 2020. In each year she started with two wins but lost the third. In 2019, she submitted Veronica Macedo and TKO’d Sarah Frota but got mauled and finished by Maycee Barber. She then submitted Cortney Casey and outpointed Poliana Botelho but she is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Taila Santos in December.

Miranda Maverick (8-2) is riding a decent four-fight winning streak and is coming off an odd but successful UFC debut. After submitting Heather Walker-Leahy for Shogun Fights and then submitting DeAnna Bennett and outpointing Pearl Gonzalez for Invicta she met Liana Jojua for her debut back in October. She was looking great on the feet before landing a beautiful elbow up the middle which caused a serious gash to Jojua’s nose forcing the doctor to call an end to the fight.

GILLIAN ROBERTSON VS MIRANDA MAVERICK PREDICTION

The worrying sign for Robertson is that all her losses have come to superior grapplers and Maverick is a strong wrestler with a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Robertson is a black belt herself but when her opponents are good enough to stifle her submission attacks, she struggles.

Maverick will also have a clear advantage on the feet so if she can use her grappling skills to keep the fight where she wants it, we back her to win a decision with her damage and output on the feet convincing the judges. However, Robertson will be relentless with her takedown attempts so you cannot count her out.
