Nunes vs Fairn Prediction

Zarah Fairn's UFC run has been forgettable thus far. The 36-year-old is 0-2 in the company thus far, picking up first-round losses to Megan Anderson and Felicia Spencer by submission and TKO, respectively.

Meanwhile, Josiane Nunes has had the opposite luck. She improved to 2-0 in her UFC tenure with a unanimous decision win over Ramona Pascual at UFC Vegas 49. Nunes has demonstrated the ability to finish off the majority of her recent opponents, winning six of her last seven fights by knockout.

Nunes shouldn't break much of a sweat tonight. She has a ton of momentum on her side while Fairn has struggled. Don't expect this to be a long one.

Nunes vs Fairn Best Bet

There's little to no value that comes from taking Nunes on the moneyline at -550. Instead, I recommend backing her to win by KO/TKO at -120.

As mentioned before, Fairn hasn't made it past the first round in either of her last two fights and was knocked out in her most recent out. With seven of Nunes' nine career victories coming by KO/TKO, her knocking out Fairn is a legitimate possibility.

Alternatively, I'm also comfortable backing Nunes winning by first-round knockout at +200.

Bet: Nunes by KO/TKO (-120)
