Yanan vs Edwards Betting Picks

This is going to be an interesting battle as Joselyn Edwards-Laboriel is being wooed by the UFC for quite some time. Yanan Wu’s fight interval is too long and it is questionable which version of her is coming depending on her conditioning. Putting your bet on the fighter with UFC experience in Yanan would be logical while the Edwards pick is also reasonable. Online Sports Betting has this match even in between.
