In the Women’s Flyweight division, we have a showdown between Cortney ‘Cast Iron’ Casey and Liana ‘She Wolf’ Jojua. Since moving up to Flyweight, Casey has struggled to find success. While Casey won her first fight at Flyweight, she subsequently dropped the next two. With a 9-9 professional record and losses in five of her last seven, Casey’s time in the UFC may be on the line. Meanwhile, Jojua looks to get back in the win column. Coming off a loss in her most recent fight and 1-2 in three trips inside the octagon, Jojua has had a tough time adjusting to better competition. She will need to right the ship sooner rather than later, as the UFC is looking for reasons to shed some of its expansive roster.
Both fighters have struggled of late, but there is a glaring difference in each’s struggles. For Cortney Casey, it’s not being able to separate herself from her opponent in the fight. In her last four decision losses, three have been split. For Liana Jojua, it’s being unable to adapt to the competition. Perhaps fighting nine opponents with a combined record of 13-7 didn’t exactly set her up for UFC caliber competition. Given that both have struggled, this is an excellent fight for one of them to get out of the proverbial dumpster.
As for a prediction, I have Casey winning. Having fought some of the best fighters since signing with the promotion in 2015, Casey has an abundance of experience. She’s also the better fighter. Jojua may have grappling chops and submissions, but her striking isn’t anywhere near serviceable. As long as Casey keeps this fight upright and forgoes wrestling, she should batter Jojua on the feet. However, as has been the case with most of her career, keeping this fight upright is a big if. In the end though, I predict that Casey will win this fight via TKO.
PICK: Cortney Casey (-210)
