Minty Bets is joined by Kevin Iole to preview the bout between Holly Holm vs. Irene Aldana on Sat. October 3 from Fight Island.
MINTY BETS: This Saturday, October 3rd, we've got a UFC Fight Night taking place on Fight Island. The main event is going to be a women's bantamweight bout, headlined by Holly Holm, a minus 125 favorite, versus Irene Aldana, a plus 105 dog.
Kevin Iole is here with me to give us his best bets. What do you think about this fight, Kevin?
KEVIN IOLE: Hey, Minty. How are you? I think this is a really fascinating fight because there's one thing we know about Holly Holm. When she faces the elite of the elite, she normally loses. Her five losses are all to women who were former champions. But when she faces anybody else, even the very good, she always wins.
So I think this is going to be a referendum, sort of, on Irene Aldana. I think this fight will turn out to be a Holly Holm fight. And the reason I say that is I think that Aldana's going to want to strike, too. I think the fight will remain on their feet.
And that is where Holly Holm is the most comfortable. She's the former World Boxing champion. She's got a lot of experience now, in MMA, fighting on her feet. I think that's going to be the difference in this fight. So I like Holly Holm, by decision, in a really good back and forth fight.
