Manon Fiorot vs Mayra Bueno fight Breakdown and Prediction:
The bout between both fighters is a clash of different fighting styles. Fiorot is an all-out striker with the ability to knock her opponents down. She tends to keep the fight on the foot and plays it as per her advantage. Most of her wins have come in the first two rounds, which shows she likes to attack as soon as possible and put her opponent in a bad position. She might struggle if the fight goes to the ground as Beuno Silva is very dominant in ground and pound. Manon will have to look for takedowns and believe in her striking capabilities to get an early knockout.
Silva on the other hand is very impressive in grappling. The BJJ background sure helps her dominate her opponents inside the octagon. Despite having a good striking ability, Silva will look for takedowns as much as possible. She will keep the fight on the ground and try to tire Fiorot to the limit as well as constantly looking for submissions. Fiorot has to be very cautious about the armbar of Silva, as Silva has got four armbar wins in her Nine career fights.
