DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 76% of handle, 68% of bets on Aldana
Aldana (13-6) might be on the doorsteps of a title shot against Amanda Nunes at bantamweight or featherweight given her history of missing weight. Chiasson (9-2) is also making a weight cut here, so the scales and conditioning are worth watching here. The styles are pretty similar, but Chiasson is taller and longer even though she doesn’t always utilize that length properly. Aldana has had longer periods of inactivity, which is concerning, but she’s faced the better competition and she’ll be motivated to get on Nunes’ radar for a potential title shot with a split decision win.
