There are no wagering lines yet for this session yet given Gadelha’s group of work in the UFC, she will probably enter the battle as the wagering top pick. On the other hand, Xiaonan has been great in the UFC and hasn’t lost a battle since 2010, so she will probably be made for a mainstream dark horse wager if the oddsmakers choose to open her as the canine here. In any case, it ought to be a decent battle and a decent test for the two ladies.
