UFC 283: Lauren Murphy vs Jessica Andrade Best Bet
Jessica Andrade Wins Inside the Distance (-110) @ Bovada
Coming off back-to-back first round stoppage victories over Amanda Lemos and Cynthia Calvillo, Jessica Andrade has proven to be one of the best female finishers in the UFC. Boasting a 74% finishing rate, more often than not, Andrade has laid waste to her foes.
While Lauren Murphy is noted for her overall toughness and durability, only once being stopped in twenty-one professional fights, she has never fought an aggressive finisher like Andrade. With punishment racking up each fight and at 39 years of age, we are not certain Murphy can withstand the damage Andrade is going to inflict on her in this fight.
With Andrade’s last five wins coming via stoppage, the Brazilian winning inside the distance seems likely.
