Public bets and money are coming in on the favorite to keep the winning streak going against a struggling fighter in terms of wins and losses. Waterson-Gomez’s string of losses came against tough competition, which is why Pinheiro isn’t as big of a favorite as you might think given her recent run of success. It will be interesting to see if she can get back on track in this spot Saturday night.
