Two up-and-coming women’s bantamweights will be the top women’s prelim bout for UFC Vegas 10 this Saturday when No. 15 Sijara Eubanks and No. 14 Julia Avila.

Avila will be a heavy favorite with a record of 8-1. “Raging Panda” has four knockouts and three submissions, and defeated Pannie Kianzad who currently sits No. 13 in the bantamweight division 18 months ago. Standing 5-foot-4, this will be a huge opportunity for the 32-year-old to approach the Top 10.

Eubanks, also known as SARJ, is 5-4 in her UFC career. With 4.95 significant strikes per round, she’s an aggressive fighter that likes to shoot for takedowns more than Avila as well. She last fought in May and snapped a two-fight losing streak.

Avila is pricey, but Raging Panda might not be worth the premium as much as some of the other expensive options on the card. Her 22 second first round KO of Gina Mazany in June can be somewhat discounted, and her quality opponent in Kianzad is more indicative of her stopping ability. She’s very likely the winner here, but you need to be assure of more than triple digits at this price, and that’s tough to see.
