Fight Preview

Amanda Lemos is a prolific striker who lands 3.43 significant strikes per minute on average. She also gets hit quite a lot (4.21 per 60 seconds), but she doesn’t seem to mind. After all, she only has one loss by knockout/technical knockout in her portfolio, and it happened back in 2017 when she was still fighting in the women’s bantamweight division.

Since moving to strawweight, she’s 8-2 overall, with three wins by KO/TKO, three by decision, and two by submission. One of her losses in this weight class was a submission loss to Jessica Andrade, which was later voted the submission of the year.  

Lemos’s other loss in the 115-pound division happened against Zhang Weili in the fight for the title. It happened last year and was a dominant performance by the Chinese fighter who landed 6 takedowns that evening.

Wrestling is a sort of Achilles’ heel for Lemos, which is probably why UFC on ESPN 60 odds favor Virna Jandiroba to win on July 20. Not only does Jandiroba land 2.36 takedowns per 15 minutes, but she’s also incredibly dangerous on the floor/in the clinch. In fact, 13 of her 20 wins happened by submission.

Lemos vs. Jandiroba Prediction

Our Amanda Lemos vs. Virna Jandiroba prediction is that one of them will finish the other. Lemos is a great striker who’s tied for most finishes in the women’s strawweight division of the UFC. However, we don’t think she can KO/TKO Jandiroba.

Jandiroba is a tough fighter who knows how to box. But her path to victory in this fight is clear – she needs to take Lemos down and finish her by submission.

  • Virna Jandiroba by Submission
