One of the most anticipated fights on the card is between Arlene Blencowe and Sara McMann. In this article, we will give a detailed review of both fighters and explain why we think McMann will dominate Blencowe.

Before we get into our prediction, let's take a closer look at each fighter.

 

Arlene Blencowe

Arlene Blencowe, also known as "Angerfist," is a 38-year-old Australian mixed martial artist who competes in the featherweight division. With a professional record of 16 wins and 10 losses, she is a Bellator veteran and former Invicta FC featherweight champion. Blencowe is known for her powerful striking and has knocked out several opponents throughout her career.

Blencowe started her MMA career in 2012 and quickly made a name for herself with her striking prowess. She signed with Bellator in 2015 and has since fought some of the toughest featherweights in the promotion. In 2016, she won the Invicta FC featherweight title by defeating Marloes Coenen via split decision. However, she lost the title in her next fight against Julia Budd.

Blencowe's last fight was against Cris Cyborg in November 2020, where she lost via TKO in the second round. Despite the loss, she showed her toughness and striking ability against one of the best fighters in the world. Blencowe is known for her aggressive fighting style and her ability to finish fights, with 12 of her 16 wins coming by KO or TKO.t.

 

Sara McMann

Sara McMann, on the other hand, is a 41-year-old American mixed martial artist who competes in the bantamweight division. She has a professional record of 13 wins and 7 losses and is known for her wrestling background. McMann was a silver medalist in wrestling at the 2004 Olympic Games and has also won multiple medals at the World Championships and Pan American Games.

McMann made her MMA debut in 2011 and signed with the UFC in 2013. She quickly established herself as one of the top bantamweights in the promotion and fought for the UFC bantamweight title in 2014 against Ronda Rousey, where she lost via TKO in the first round. Since then, she has faced some tough opponents in the UFC and outside of it, including Amanda Nunes and Ketlen Vieira.

McMann's last fight was against Karol Rosa in September 2020, where she won via unanimous decision. She showed her wrestling dominance in the fight and was able to control Rosa on the ground. McMann is known for her wrestling ability and has won most of her fights by decision or by ground and pound. She is a tough opponent for anyone in the bantamweight division and is looking to continue her winning streak in her next fight.

 

Prediction

i believe that Sara McMann will dominate Arlene Blencowe in this fight. McMann's wrestling ability will be too much for Blencowe to handle. McMann will likely look to take Blencowe down to the mat and control her from there. Blencowe has good striking, but she won't be able to showcase it if she's stuck on her back for most of the fight.

McMann is also the more well-rounded fighter. While she's known for her wrestling, she's also a competent striker and has decent submissions. Blencowe, on the other hand, is primarily a striker and doesn't have the grappling skills to hang with McMann.

In terms of experience, both fighters are veterans of the sport. However, McMann has faced tougher competition throughout her career. She's fought some of the best fighters in the world, including Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, and Amanda Nunes. Blencowe has also fought some tough opponents, but she hasn't faced anyone on the same level as McMann.

In conclusion, we predict that Sara McMann will dominate Arlene Blencowe at Bellator 294. McMann's wrestling ability will be too much for Blencowe to handle, and she'll likely control her on the ground for most of the fight. McMann is the more well-rounded fighter and has faced tougher competition throughout her career. We believe that she'll come out on top in this fight.
