In this flyweight (125lb) bout, we have Wu “Mulan” Yanan vs. Joselyne “La Pantera” Edwards. Wu is an orthodox fighter and is entering this bout at -110 PK. She has a professional MMA record of 11-3-0. Her current record in the UFC is 1-2-0. Wu is fighting out of Chaoyang, Liaoning China. She lost her last bout against Mizuki inoue in August 2019. Wu has 7 wins by KO/TKO (64%), 2 submissions (18%), and 2 decisions (18%). 

Edwards is an orthodox fighter and is entering this fight as a -110 PK. She is fighting out of Panama. Her professional MMA record is 9-2-1. Edwards will be making her UFC debut. She previously fought in UWC, LFA, KOTC and TFS. In Edwards last bout, she won against Pamela Gonzalez via KO. Before the Gonzalez fight, she lost to Sarah Alpar in the LFA.

At surface level, Yanan's record looks flawless, however, her previous opponents before Lauren Meuller, have a combined record of 2-6-0. Also, she faced six fighters that were making their professional debut. Yanan’s lack of high-level competition is why I'm skeptical in picking her to win this fight. The combination of Edwards speed, power, elusiveness and experience, should lead her to win this bout. I honestly don’t understand how Edwards isn’t the heavy favorite in this fight, but if Vegas wants to give us free money, we shall take it. 

I pick Joselyn Edwards Money Line -110
