UFC 237 Main Card Odds
The UFC 237 Main Card on May 11th, 2019, features a MMA Women’s Strawweight Title bout in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday, May 11, 2019. Jeunesse Aren is expected to house in the neighborhood of 40,000 octagon fanatics who will be anxiously awaiting the main card 5-round title fight between favorite Jessica Andrade (-140) and Rose Namajunas (+120). UFC 237 Main Card Odds: Strawweight Title.
Namajunas vs Andrade Overview
Most notably Namajunas still isn’t receiving her due credit in what is essentially a oddsmaker coin-flip. And for the umpteenth time it is Rose versus the World. Namajunas upset Joanna Jedrzejczyk to win the women’s strawweight title. Furthermore that victory was followed by a second bout vs Jedrzejczyk in which Namajunas won handily, again. Consequently the second Saturday in May will once again find Namajunas being demanded to offer proof of her title belt worthiness.
Also it wasn’t enough that Rose had to take the octagon and earn victories twice against the supposed best strawweight of all time. As a result she takes the UFC mat as the underdog as the title holder. And to rub salt into the disrespected wounds of Namajunas she enters the UFC 237 feature event on enemy soil. Namajunas is putting her title on the line in Andrade home country of Brazil.
In short MMA pundits argue that Namajunas doesn’t have the power or lower body strength to overwhelm the Andrade Assassin.
Playing second fiddle to the strawweight women is a co-main middleweight bout between legendary Anderson Silva and Jared Cannonier.
In conclusion the main card is scheduled to air live on pay-per-view immediately following the ESPN coverage of the prelims.
