Heading into the fight, the Brazilian champion is a -300 favorite while the challenger is a +230 underdog.

Ahead of the fight, BJPENN.com reached out to several pro fighters to get their predictions for the scrap. Amanda Nunes is clearly happy about getting the tag.

Holloway set his sights on being the best pound-for-pound fighter when he moved up to lightweight to face Dustin Poirer in April for the interim lightweight championship. Staying close to the champion gives "The Lioness" a chance to counter and do damage so de Randamie would be best served trying to drag the fight into deep water. She has so much power and the power will be a factor. "She's going to shoot on me".

Alexander Volkanovski, UFC featherweight: That is a good fight.

No one has been able to make her pay for it or survive long enough absorbing her punches to have it matter, but de Randamie with all her professional kickboxing experience may very well have the durability and poise to make things interesting in that regard.

That's according to the latter who will challenge Nunes in a rematch for the women's bantamweight title at UFC 245 this Saturday in Las Vegas.

Six years on from that fight, de Randamie looks back at that setback as a pivotal moment in her career as she believes it made her a mixed martial artist rather than a kickboxer. Maybe she picks up a submission or a decision.

Nunes is coming off a knockout of former bantamweight champ Holly Holm at UFC 239 in July. She is a monster. She is the killer, she walks you down and beats your ass. She maintains that the love of the competition has pushed her to cut no corners, but the threat of complacency remains a very real one for any athlete. There is a massive gap from her to the next person.

The 31-year-old Nunes has been with the UFC since 2013 and competing since 2008.

Billy Quarantillo, UFC featherweight: Amanda Nunes all day. She is the best fighter of all time and she beat GDR once already. It is hard to pick against her.
