ROXANNE MODAFFERI VS ANDREA LEE LOWDOWN

‘The Happy Warrior’ Roxanne Modafferi walks out for her 42nd MMA fight and like many female flyweights, she has struggled to get a winning streak going. She has continued to win one and lose one since 2017 but it may be a good omen as she lost her last fight. This was a decision to Lauren Murphy which came off her huge upset win over Maycee Barber.

After riding a seven-fight win streak, Andre Lee is in the unfamiliar territory of losing two on the bounce. After earning brilliant unanimous decisions over, Veronica Macedo, Ashlee Evans-Smith and Montana De La Rosa, she fell to close split decisions to Joanne Calderwood with Murphy striking again with another split decision.

ROXANNE MODAFFERI VS ANDREA LEE PREDICTION

We know what to expect from Modaferri and that is to bank on her wrestling, drag Lee to the mat and maintain top control while looking for a submission.

Lee is on a different level when it comes to striking decorated in kickboxing, Muay Thai and boxing but she is also well-rounded. She is a brown belt in judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu and already boasts a win over a talented wrestler in De La Rosa.

However, she will want to avoid any grappling as she knows Modaferri does not pose much threat on the feet. The worrying sign is that Lee only has a 61% takedown defence and has been taken down in every UFC fight but we are backing her to stay on the feet long enough to land more and inflict more damage to sway the judges.

Winner: Lee via Decision

Value Bet: Modafferi via Decision
