Shane’s Free Pick

The value here is with Aldana. Aldana is going to be able to take the pressure from Nunes early, and as the fight goes on, she’s going to be able to land her shots. Nunes is going to get worn down, and the power of Aldana is going to really inflict the damage. It might not be a super popular pick going against Nunes, but Aldana is going to pull the upset here. Back Aldana on the money line.
