Women’s Flyweight contenders Gina Mazany and Rachael Ostovich will fight at the Preliminary card of UFC Fight Night on Saturday. Rachael Ostovich will enter the UFC octagon after a 23-month long lay-off. However, her opponent Mazany fought just five months ago and will not possess any rust ahead of the fight.
Here, we will explore the statistics of both fighters and analyze which one has a better shot of leaving the UFC Apex with a win.
Gina ‘Danger’ Mazany has just a single win to her name in the UFC. She last won in 2017 against Wu Yanan through a unanimous decision and has lost 3 bouts straight. In her pro-MMA career, Mazany has clinched 6 fights and lost 4. The southpaw enthralls UFC fans with her exhibition of good striking and considerable skills on the mat.
‘Danger’ has won 33% of her fights via knockout, submission, and decision. This shows us that she doesn’t have a preferred way to end the fight. In the UFC, she landed 2.75 punches every minute with an accuracy of 49%. She averaged 3.14 takedowns every 15 minutes.
Rachael Ostovich does not exhibit an eye-catchy UFC and MMA record. She has just a single win on her name in the UFC. Overall, she has got 4 wins, 5 losses on her pro-MMA record.
Ostovich has excellent grappling skills with 100% takedown accuracy in the UFC. She has attempted 1.3 submissions every 15 minutes. On average, Ostovich has taken her opponents down 3.28 times every 15 mins. She has a decent standup game with 43% striking accuracy.
Rachael is coming off a loss to Paige VanZant in her previous outing in January 2019. She will look forward to taking the fight to the ground and attempt for early submission. Gina Mazany will have to use her height to her advantage to counter takedowns and nullify Ostovich’s strength. Her 20% takedown defense could haunt her.
Prediction – Rachael Ostovich to claim a unanimous decision win
