Shane’s Free Pick
Weili is the better striker, and she also is a much better wrestler. Lemos might be able to get lucky with a shot and finish it, but I don’t really see that happening. Weili is going to wear down Lemos as the fight goes on, and at some point the pressure is going to be too much for Lemos. Weili is going to put on quite the show here, and this one will be over before the final bell. Back Weili by finish.
