UFC 286: Juliana Miller vs Veronica Hardy
As UFC 286 approaches, the anticipation for the women's flyweight bout between Juliana Miller and Veronica Hardy is building. Both fighters have their sights set on victory, but only one will come out on top. In this article, we'll take an extended look at both fighters and provide a detailed prediction of the outcome of the fight.
Juliana Miller, also known as the "Killer," is a rising star in the women's flyweight division. With a record of 4-1-0, Miller has proven that she's a force to be reckoned with. She has a well-rounded game, with three of her wins coming by submission and one by KO/TKO. Miller is a versatile fighter, comfortable both on the feet and on the ground. Her striking accuracy of 46% and significant strikes landed per minute (SLpM) of 4.06 show that she's more than capable of standing and trading with her opponents. Her ground game is equally impressive, with an average of 2.5 submission attempts per 15 minutes.
Miller's last fight was a championship belt bout against Brogan Walker, which she won by KO/TKO in the third round. Miller showcased her striking skills in the fight, landing 65 significant strikes and ultimately finishing her opponent with a right hand. Her previous victory against Kaytlin Neil was equally impressive, as she submitted her opponent in the second round with a rear-naked choke. Miller's only loss came in a decision against Claire Guthrie in Invicta FC, which she has since bounced back from with a string of impressive performances.
Veronica Hardy, hailing from Venezuela, is also an accomplished fighter in the women's flyweight division. She has a record of 6-4-1, with two wins by submission and one by KO/TKO. Hardy is a southpaw fighter and has a reach of 64 inches, which gives her an advantage over some of her opponents.
Hardy's last fight was a decision loss against Bea Malecki in UFC Fight Night: Lee vs. Oliveira. Before that, she won a submission victory against Polyana Viana in the first round of UFC Fight Night: Shevchenko vs. Carmouche 2. Hardy's other notable fights include a loss against Gillian Robertson in UFC Fight Night: Blachowicz vs. Santos and a win against Karine Gevorgyan in MFE: Mix Fight Events.
While both fighters are accomplished in their own right, we believe that Juliana Miller will come out on top in this fight. Miller has a more well-rounded game, and her striking ability, combined with her grappling, will give her an edge over Hardy.
Miller's ability to finish fights is another factor that works in her favor. Three of her four wins have come by submission, and her most recent victory was a KO/TKO. If the fight goes to the ground, Miller will have the advantage, with an average of 2.45 takedowns per 15 minutes and a submission accuracy of 75%. Hardy, on the other hand, has been submitted twice in her career, indicating a potential weakness in her ground game. In addition, Miller has shown that she can perform under pressure in high-stakes situations. She won her last fight, which was for the championship belt, by knockout in the third round. This indicates that she has the ability to rise to the occasion and perform at her best when it matters most.
Hardy, on the other hand, has struggled in her most recent fights, losing two out of her last three. While she has a solid record, her last fight was over two years ago, and she has not faced the same level of competition as Miller. It is possible that she may struggle to keep up with Miller's pace and power.
Our prediction for this fight is that Juliana Miller will win by KO/TKO, disqualification, or submission. She has the edge in both striking and grappling, and her ability to finish fights gives her a significant advantage. While Veronica Hardy is a talented fighter, we believe that she will struggle to keep up with Miller's pace and power.
