Felice Herrig (+250) vs. Virna Jandiroba (-310) Odds & Predictions.
Almost two years have passed since Felice Herrig last stepped in the Octagon, and a comeback bout against rising strawweight star Virna Jandiroba doesn’t promise to be an easy one.
Brazilian Jandiroba is the biggest favorite of any combatant at UFC 252, priced at low odds of -310 with William Hill, while Herrig looks worthy of her billing as +250 underdog.
To Herrig’s credit, she’s never been submitted in her career and suffered each of her eight career defeats by decision. However, almost two years out of the fight setting won’t do her much good against a ground specialist like Jandiroba, who has notched 12 of her 15 career victories by submission.
A decision loss to Carla Esparza in her UFC debut counts for Jandiroba’s only career defeat to date, speaking of the high standard she carries despite only fighting twice for the promotion. Expect Jandiroba to take this to the floor early in an attempt to fight her game, and William Hill’s +250 odds for a submission victory appear too tempting to pass up.
Felice Herrig vs. Virna Jandiroba Prediction: Jandiroba via submission
