Livia Renata Souza will be fighting Alex Chambers at UFC Fight Night 137 in a fight in the women’s strawweight division.
Alex Chambers enters this fight in poor form as she has lost her last 2 fights. Since joining the UFC, Chambers has a record of 2 losses and only 1 win which is not great and she will be determined to turn things around. This will not be an easy task since she is fighting in unfamiliar territory having never competed in South America. Furthermore, Chambers has not fought for close to 12 months so it might take time for her to adjust to being back in the octagon.

On the other side of the octagon, Livia Renata Souza will be making her UFC debut in this fight. Souza has fought previously for Invicta FC and she currently has a professional MMA record of 11 wins and 1 loss. In 2018, Livia Renata Souza has fought twice in the past and on both occasions, she has won in dominant fashion. The latest of the two fights was in August and while this could be potentially problematic due to the small time between fixtures, Souza should not be impacted too much since she has been winning with great ease. Livia Renata Souza in from Sao Paulo so this fight will take place in her hometown. This should be a huge advantage for the Souza as she will have the crowd behind her. In addition to that, Livia Renata Souza has an incredible record in Sao Paulo as she has won 7 times and has never lost.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Livia Renata Souza to win this fight. Livia Renata Souza is in good form and will be fighting at home. Souza in unbeaten when fighting in Sao Paulo and with the crowd behind her, I see her winning her UFC debut.
