UPDATE: Fight day odds and betting splits for Herrig-Jandiroba

A ranked women’s strawweight that has been in the octagon with some top named fighters takes on a nearly perfect MMA fighter as Felice Herrig faces Virna Jandiroba at UFC 252 Saturday night in Las Vegas.

“Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig is #15 in the strawweight division, and enters with a 14-8 record in MMA and a UFC mark of 5-3. She dropped her last two bouts, both in 2018, and has been on the shelf with an ACL and other injuries since. The 35-year-old from Buffalo Grove, Illinois averages 3.69 strikes per minute as well as 1.20 takedowns per 15-minute match. She only has five career stoppages, and her last three victories were all by decision, but she has also never been finished in her career.

Jandiorba is 1-1 in the UFC, and 15-1 overall with 12 career submissions. She dropped her opening bout in Dana White’s promotion to Carla Esparza via decision, but bounced back with a second-round rear-naked choke of Mallory Martin in December of 2019. At 32 from Bahia, Brazil, the former Invicta title holder is a BJJ specialist that made her MMA debut in 2013. She averages 4.23 takedowns per distance bout in her 21:16 of total time in a UFC octagon.
