Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm (12-5-0) takes on Raquel “Rocky” Pennington (10-7-0) in a bantamweight fight at UFC246 at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada on Saturday night.

This is a rematch between Holm and Pennington, with Holm having won a split decision when the pair met back in 2015. That fight also happened to be Holm’s first fight at UFC. 

This rematch was originally scheduled for UFC243, but the 38 year-old Holm was forced to withdraw due to injury. 

Holm has lost five of her last seven fights, although she has certainly been up against some elite fighters. She hasn’t fought since July 2019, when she went down to her first knockout loss against Brazil’s Amanda Nunes in the 1st round.

Betting Odds - Winner

Following back-to-back losses to Nunes and Germaine de Randamie, the 31 year-old Pennington returned to winning ways with a split decision victory over Mexico’s Irene Aldana last July.

Holm vs Pennington UFC 246 Betting Lines & Pick

This fight should come down to a battle between Holly Holm’s superior striking, against Raquel Pennington’s ability as a grappler.

The first fight between these Americans saw Holm avoid every takedown attempt by her opponent. There’s nothing that would suggest that Pennington will be any more successful in taking Holm to the mat on this occasion, so Holm is the tip in predictions to win this fight.

Holm can be backed at odds of -137 (1.72) with Betway in the Fight Result betting, with the line on Pennington at +125 (2.25) at Sports Interaction.
