The fight will be at 145 lbs division. Hence, it presents an interesting opportunity for the women involved to fight for the championship as there aren’t any clear contenders in the division. Macy is incredibly well-rounded both on the mat and in striking. She is not afraid to let her punches go. However, Pennington has the problem of not letting her hands go.
The 15- minute contest indicates a higher pace and the more active fighter will have an upper hand. But with the potential implications of a potential title shot, both Pennington and Chiasson will engage in a higher volume fight which might favour the younger fighter.
