I have heavy hands, as well. I’m well rounded, so you guys have to be excited for this. Aldana is powerful. She can knock somebody out, so I’ve got to watch for that. She’s also a very good counter striker. When I set up my shots, I want to make sure I’m in the right range when she attacks.”

UFC Picks

I am surprised that Aldana is getting this title shot, as she just hasn’t been that impressive. The resume for Nunes doesn’t need any defending, as she is one of the best of all-time. I think Nunes will win, but am not laying 3-1. I think the better choice is to wait for the props and take Nunes to win by KO/TKO and get plus money on the prop.
