De Randamie vs Pena Betting Picks

This should be close but don’t expect Julianna Pena to just give in to Germaine de Randamie despite her opponent’s experience in the cage. The safer bet will be De Randamie as seen by Online Sportsbook but putting your faith in Pena is a very reasonable risk as well. This should go to a full three rounds.
