NATALIA SILVA VS TEREZA BLEDA LOWDOWN

Natalia Silva (13-5-1) was racking up the armbar’s on the regional scene and arrived to the UFC on a six-fight win streak which included five armbar’s and a rear-naked choke. She made her debut in June this year against Jasmine Jasudavicius who was a step-up in competition and rose to the occasion winning a unanimous decision.

Now, she is the one to welcome a debutant in Tereza Bleda (6-0). She made a name for herself in the Slovakian Oktagon MMA promotion and won her first five fights including two submissions and two knockouts. They earnt her a shot on the Contender Series against Nayara Arnault Maia Correia back in September and got the nod from all three judges to secure a UFC contract.

NATALIA SILVA VS TEREZA BLEDA PREDICTION

Bleda has looked superb so far in her young career. She is experienced with a successful amateur background and is only 20 years old. She is a fierce grappler and will boast a six-inch reach and five-inch height advantage which will assist her in wrapping Silva up.

Silva also has a ton of potential. She is a submission wizard and her striking is very slick. While this fight is on the feet, she will look a different class despite the size discrepancy. She also will not mind fighting off her back hunting an arm.

If Silva continues to improve, we can see her remaining illusive to keep the fight on the feet long enough to sway the judges with her volume. However, the size and power of Bleda could make all the difference and as the underdog, she is a no brainer for a pick.
