Cat Zingano vs. Leah McCourt – Sfr-Fresh


Although it’s the co-main of the cardboard, it’s the primary occasion in my eyes. Winner of this combat could possibly be positioning themselves right into a shot on the title on the ladies’s featherweight division. For Zingano, it’s a reputation that many possible acknowledge if you happen to comply with the early tales of Ronda Rousey, Amanda Nunes, and Miesha Tate or have been an off-the-cuff fan for a while now. As for Leah McCourt, she has been up and coming and brought Bellator by storm posting a 6-1 file whereas with Bellator. I took a take a look at each fighters final couple bouts breaking down every fighters path to victory and what offers them their greatest path to a hopeful title shot with present champion, Cris Cyborg (so long as she resigns with Bellator).

For Cat Zingano, expertise is the simplest factor to rely on. She must know she is the extra chiseled fighter within the cage on Friday evening and if she makes use of that to her benefit then this could possibly be rather a lot simpler for her. After which being a wrestler myself, one among my greatest issues I take away from myself is that she is relentless when going for a takedown. She doesn’t cease and won’t cease when making an attempt to realize a takedown. If she will get McCourt right down to her again this could possibly be big for Zingano. Through the media day, McCourt stated she has by no means fought a grappler earlier than which this could possibly be an excessive benefit for Cat.

For Leah McCourt, she must hold this on the toes and attempt to win on factors. When it comes to hanging there isn’t any query she has the benefit but when she finds herself on the bottom she may battle. She does come from a terrific health club over in Eire and it might be foolish to consider that she doesn’t prepare grappling nevertheless Zingano ought to maintain a bonus within the grappling division. Leah truly has a justifiable share of wins over her profession by submission however in her fights in opposition to Jessica Borga, she nearly instantly was in protection and was combating submission makes an attempt which is somethings she will’t do early in opposition to Zingano. In that very same Borga combat, when McCourt was ready to make use of her physique to grind on her in opposition to the cage and ware on the physique, that was efficient however she can’t be sloppy as she would get herself into bother. I feel for Leah McCourt greater than something, she must be technically sound to remain on this combat and provides herself the most effective probability at a win.

Prediction: I feel Cat Zingano will get the title shot she deserves. For Cat Zingano, this can be one final dance (it’s an over used expression now however deservingly so). She has been a pioneer for ladies’s MMA and a matchup with Cris Cybrorg is the right approach for Bellator to honor this since I assume we are going to get to see Cyborg resigned. If Cyborg is just not resigned, I assume she will get a brand new opponent as she fights for a vacant belt. As for Leah McCourt, this won’t be the top of her journey. She could be very younger within the sport. I feel she nonetheless is sharpening her abilities and as soon as she learns to remain out of hazard and begins ending some fights in Bellator, she shall be an actual drawback in ladies’s MMA within the again half of her profession as she is simply 30 years outdated.
