UFC Fight Night: Mayra Bueno Silva vs Wu Yanan Fight Breakdown and Prediction
Mayra Bueno Silva started strongly in the UFC as she dominated a powerful contender like Gillian Robertson and finished her via submission. Since that victory, she has been inconsistent with only one win in her last four fights. The same could be said about her opponent Wu Yanan as she has only registered one win in her four fights in the promotion.
Going into the fight, Silva is a favourite to win because of the submission threat she possesses. And on the standup, both these bantamweight are on equal footing as they land a high output of strikes with good efficiency.
In the end, fans can expect an action-filled fight, but Mayra’s threat in striking as well as grappling gives her a great advantage over Yanan.
