Main Card

Katlyn Chookagian

Katlyn Chookagian seems to lack the skill against Ribas. Chookagian has certainly made a big move to battle against Ribas, but with just one knockdown this is going to be a tough fight. Chookagian recorded a knockdown back in 2016 and she has not been up to the mark. Yet, she has some amazing skills that might surprise Ribas. Chookagian defeated Jennifer Maia back in 2022 via a unanimous decision. The talented fighter is holding a significant strike rate of 4.59 and landing 35 percent accuracy per minute. When it comes to absorbing, Cookagina is taking in 4.30 strikes per minute. Chookagian has a 62 percent defense rate and is averaging .031 per 15 minutes when it comes to takedowns. Overall, Chookgian is a talented fighter, but getting past Ribas is rather doubtful given the numbers on her side.

Amanda Ribas

Amanda Ribas is six inches shorter than Chookagian, but she is expected to use that as her advantage in this fight. Ribas is only giving up two inches in reach and she is also a stronger fighter when compared to Chookagian. Ribas will also have the upper hand in takedowns and is all set to win this fight. This fight can go to the ground as both fighters have good skills for grappling. In her last bout, Ribas defeated Virna Jandiroba via unanimous decision back in October 2021. Ribas is averaging 4.30 significant strikes per minute. Ribas also has a strong defensive rate of 62 percent and is taking in 2.17 significant strikes per minute with a 70 percent defense rate. When it comes to takedown defense, Ribas has a solid 86 percent rate.
