A Flyweight contest pits UFC debutant Erin Blanchfield against Sarah Alpar. The former Invicta prospect Blanchfield comes into this fight on a three-fight win streak. Of those three wins, Blanchfield has finished two of her opponents. This will be Blanchfield’s first fight in over a year, as her original UFC debut in April was nixed due to a failed weight cut by her opponent. Meanwhile, Sarah Alpar comes into this fight off a loss. One in which snapped a three-fight win streak. Due to opponent withdrawals in a proposed fight back in May, this will be Alpar’s first fight in a year.
Erin Blanchfield is an excellent addition to the Flyweight division. With superior ground skills, an evolving striking and wrestling, it’s only a matter of time before a legitimate contender is born. However, Sarah Alpar is no pushover. With fourteen professional fights and nine victories, Alpar has excellent experience and legitimate wins over top competition. While her UFC debut didn’t go her way, Alpar showed heart and an aptitude to endure punishment.
As for a prediction, I side with Blanchfield. I believe she just has too many advantages in this fight. For one, Alpar is a grappler with very minimal striking abilities. Blanchfield is a superior ground specialist, who is going to make Alpar work to fight off submissions and sweeps should the fight hit the mat. On the feet, Blanchfield is an evolving kickboxer and light years ahead of Alpar. In the end, I see the UFC debutant Blanchfield winning via late submission.
