The women’s flyweight division will co-main event UFC Fight Island 6 on October 17th as #1 Katlyn Chookagian and #2 Jessica Andrade face off in a gripping bout. A fight between two great combatants should make for a terrific contest considering the styles and height differences.
Chookagian has had a mixed bag her last two times out as she was finished by Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 247 in February, but did get revenge by defeating the champ’s sister Antonina. For Katlyn, an eight-inch height advantage, as well as a six-inch reach edge should be huge factors to consider. She is probably a better stand-up fighter as well and those advantages could have her come out the victor.
Andrade jumps up from strawweight and faces a good opponent in this one. While the height and reach will be issues, she can neutralize it for her with a fantastic ground game that she is know for, averaging 3.02 takedowns per 15 minutes. This fight could go the distance and be very close. The betting splits also reflect that.
Here are the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook for Katlyn Chookagian vs. Jessica Andrade at UFC Fight Island 6 on October 17th.
Katlyn Chookagian: +130 (22% of action, 46% of bets)
