How to watch Macy Chiasson vs. Norma Dumont
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 85% of handle, 70% of bets on Dumont
Dumont missed the featherweight limit and will be fined 30% for missing weight. Otherwise, she is still heavily favored in this matchup. She has won three fights in a row and they have all come by decision. Dumont hasn’t shown off her knockout ability yet and has instead been a little more methodical during her fights. If she is wanting to go far in the UFC she needs to start ending fights early and developing either as a striker or a submission specialist.
