Calvillo vs Godinez Prediction

After an impressive 6-1-1 start to her UFC tenure, Cynthia Calvillo's career has gone off the rails. She heads into the weekend on a four-fight losing streak, most recently losing to Nina Nunes by unanimous decision. In order to overcome her skid, Calvillo must defeat Lupita Godinez, who's aiming to bounce by after losing unanimously to Angela Hill by points.

It's better to fade Cavillo after she's been knocked out twice in her last three fights. She also struggles in lengthier fights, which is where Godinez thrives. Each of the 29-year-old's last four outings have gone the distance, after all. Her superior grappling game will tire Calvillo out as things go on, resulting in the judges siding with Godinez in the end.

Winner: Lupita Godinez

Calvillo vs Godinez Best Bet

It's hard to imagine Godinez winning this fight by any method other than points. After all, six of her previous eight victories have been in the form of a decision. Meanwhile, Calvillo has lost twice in her previous four outings by points and doesn't have the skill set to thrive in a longer fight.

Much like how she's often gotten things done in the past, back Godinez winning this fight by points.

Bet: Lupita Godinez by Points (-125)
