UFC Fight Night 206 Holm vs. Vieira picks and predictions
Records: Holm (14-5-0) | Vieira (12-2-0)
Holm (-260), a.k.a. "The Preacher's Daughter", should be able to return with a victory against Vieira. She is positioned well for another title shot if she can stack a couple of victories.
However, risking more than two and a half times your potential return is not a good investment.
PASS, and look to the method of victory instead.
HOLM ON POINTS (-113) is a much more economical play.
Holm has gone the distance in 4 of her last 5 fights, and 6 of the previous 8 bouts. Meanwhile, Vieira has needed the help of the judges to figure out a winner in each of her last 3 fights, while going the distance in 6 of her 8 contests since arriving at the UFC level.
While it's a good bet this fight goes the distance, playing Yes (-260): Fight to go the distance is just a little too expensive here.
