Claudia Gadelha vs. Yan Xiaonan 11:15 PM | Sat, Nov 07 2020
Sport: UFC | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000)
YX (-136) @ pinnacle

I'm backing YAN XIAONAN. This is an interesting fight. While Gadelha is a quality grappler, Xiaonan is the far much stronger striker. I believe that her superior footwork and striking will prove to be the difference. Both fighters won by decision last time out. However, Gadelha's fight was close (13 of 17 media outlets thought she lost) while Xiaonan dominated hers. These two were supposed to fight in September but the fight was postponed due to Gadelha pulling out with an injury. Xiaonan was "pissed off" as she got word the day after arriving from China. The UFC offered her a chance to fight someone different on Fight Island or wait and fight Gadelha. She chose to stick with this fight as she knows Gadelha has a high ranking and because she believes that she can beat her. She's determined to get the belt and/or a showdown vs. fellow Chinese fighter, Zhang Weili, which she says "would be the biggest moment in Chinese sports." Gadelha is tough but a determined Xiaonan wins this win by decision or KO. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
