Rodriguez vs. Lemos predictions – MMA Crossfire

The UFC returns to the Apex in Las Vegas for a women’s strawweight contender bout between Marina Rodriguez and Amanda Lemos.

It should be noted that five fighters initially missed weight with only one fighter, preliminary fighter, women’s flyweight Shanna Young eventually making weight by cutting her hair. So if you’re keeping score, that’s Grant Dawson, Benito Lopez, Carlos Candelario and Ramona Pascual, who all missed weight for this event.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card, but first a word from Dana White.

MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)

GRANT DAWSON (18-1-1) VS. MARK MADSEN (12-0-0)

Andrews: Finally, Madsen meets his match here, but can Dawson overcome the grappling to get the fight to the ground? I have not gone with the grappling of Madsen until someone can prove otherwise. But it could be Dawson.

Andrews Prediction: Mark Madsen via UD

NATE MANESS (14-2-0) VS. TAGIR ULANBEKOV (13-2-0)

Andrews: Both fighters are coming off a loss and haven’t fought a ton of big names so it’s a tough one to call. I am leaning towards Ulanbekov to edge it out.

Andrews Prediction: Tagir Ulanbekov

CHASE SHERMAN (16-10-0) VS. JARED PARISIAN (15-5-0)

UFC Vegas 64

Andrews: Sherman finally won a fight in which somebody had to win but he’s back in the fire here Josh should take this one.

Andrews Prediction: Josh Parisian via TKO

NEIL MAGNY (26-9-0) VS. DANIEL RODRIGUEZ (17-2-0)

Andrews: Magny is a gamer but I think D-Rod will take this one by decision.

Andrews Prediction: Daniel Rodriguez via UD

MAIN EVENT

#3 MARINA RODRIGUEZ (16-1-2) VS. #6 AMANDA LEMOS (12-2-1)

Andrews: This should be a good battle. I think the technical volume of Rodriguez should prevail over the power of Lemos if she can avoid the power shots. And she does have the edge on the ground too.

Andrews Prediction: Marina Rodriguez via UD

Enjoy the fights.
