Blanchfield vs Fiorot Betting

Erin Blanchfield vs Manon Fiorot headlines UFC Fight Night in Atlantic City on Saturday.

Blanchfield vs Fiorot betting odds have Blanchfield at -210 and Fiorot at +170, which is a surprising market.

Younger fighters have a great record. But Fiorot has been impressive since joining the UFC.

Uncover Exclusive Picks & Predictions From Our Experts.

Blanchfield Rolling Through Division

The 24-year-old has made an impressive start to her career at 12-1, but her next UFC event is her biggest yet.

Beating Fiorot won’t be easy. But going in Blanchfield’s favor is her submission game. She defeated the likes of Molly McCann and JJ Aldrich by submission in 2022, which bodes well for her.

Being the younger fighter is a bonus, especially a 10-year difference. That’s why she’s the -210 favorite with Blanchfield vs Fiorot betting odds, and we’re not surprised.

However, we don’t see much value with those odds. We would have had the favorite at -140, which is a respectable price for someone of her talent.

“I feel like I’ve had a couple of No. 1 contender fights now. But you know, I’m still pretty young and gained valuable experience in those fights. Whether it’s an interim or not, I’ll beat (Fiorot), and then I should definitely get a title (shot) next,” said Blanchfield.

Her win over Talia Santos was solid without being great. The biggest worry is that she attempted 14 takedowns and landed none. That’s an incredible statistic and one you’ll rarely see at top-level MMA.

Despite that performance, she could rebound against Fiorot, but beware of taking the short odds.

Fiorot Unbeaten in UFC

The 34-year-old Manon Fiorot has made a big impression since arriving in the UFC.

Her UFC results have been impressive, including a win over Rose Namajunas, who won her most recent fight.

She gets a chance at UFC Fight Night to show the world her best fighting attributes though it could be her only chance.

A title shot awaits the winner of this fight. The Frenchwoman could make the most of her opportunities.

She also got the better of a surging Katlyn Chookagian, one of the harder fighters to beat in the flyweight division.

It will take a lot for Fiorot to avoid the submission game of Blanchfield. But after being so unsuccessful in the takedown department against Santos, that should give Fiorot confidence.

Blanchfield vs Fiorot betting has Fiorot at juicy odds of +170 and we think money will come for her throughout the week.

An Upset is Brewing

We’re taking the value odds with Fiorot, the more impressive fighter.

The karate black beat has the stand-up game to get the better of Blanchfield, so long as she stays out of the clinch.

She knows her time at the top could come to an end with a loss, and she should be ready to produce her best.

We believe she has more knockout power than Blanchfield and having five rounds to work with is in her favor.

We’re also taking under 4.5 rounds, which is currently paying at +105. Most of the early money has come for the over. Fiorot could get Blanchfield out of the octagon in the first four rounds.

She has a sizable power advantage, and if she clips her opponent with a right hand, it could be all over early.

Take a same-fight parlay with Fiorot into the under pays massive odds, and it’s worth the risk.
