We have a rare fight in the Women’s Featherweight division, as former title challenger Felicia ‘Feenom’ Spencer takes on Leah ‘Nidas’ Letson. In what is the shallowest division in the UFC, both women have an opportunity to put themselves closer to a title shot with a mere win. Spencer comes into this fight on a two fight losing streak, as well as a loser of three of the last four. With talent and heart, it’s surprising Spencer has struggled of late. Meanwhile, Letson returns to the octagon after missing nearly three years. Prior to the layoff, Letson had defeated Julija Stoliarenko in her UFC debut. The crazy thing about Letson’s situation is despite the layoff, with a win over Spencer, she could very well be one win away from a title shot.
Despite Felicia Spencer’s struggles, she remains one of the more talented Featherweight’s on the roster. Perhaps that’s not saying much given the current state of the division, but she’s been around long enough to show her skills. Spencer is primarily a wrestler, who is a good positional grappler. Her faults though have come within her takedown defense and perhaps falling in love with her serviceable striking. In a fight against Norma Dumont, Spencer chose not to attempt even a single takedown, but to try and outstrike a striker. Given Leah Letson is a striker, she would welcome Spencer to go toe-to-toe with her. With three of her five professional wins coming via knockout, Letson may be one of the more powerful women in the Featherweight division.
As for a prediction, I have Spencer winning. With her back up against the wall, Spencer needs to right the ship immediately, otherwise she could find herself cut from the promotion. That means, Spencer will need to go back to her bread-and-butter wrestling. Given Letson is a striker, I believe Spencer will do just that. I also favor Spencer simply off activity. Letson being out for three years brings a real unknown as to how she will perform. So with all that said, I predict that Spencer wins via decision.
PICK: Felicia Spencer (-300)
