Amorim vs Hughes Prediction

Sam Hughes had some decent hype when she arrived at the UFC, but hasn't been able to live up to it. She's lost four of her first six fights under the promotion and is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Piera Rodriguez. On the other side, Jaqueline Amorim is making her UFC debut following a 6-0 start to her MMA career.

Aside from a TKO win over Elise Reed, Hughes hasn't looked that impressive inside a UFC octagon. I see her having a tough time with Amorim, who's finished off each of her six opponents within the first round (one by knockout, five by submission). That level of dominance is promising and if she can handle the spotlight, she won't have any issues beating a vulnerable Hughes.

Winner: Jaqueline Amorim

Amorim vs Hughes Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making an Amorim outright win at -295 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC 287 for more playable options.
