Piera Rodriguez vs Kay Hansen
Piera Rodriguez will make her UFC debut against Kay Hansen. She punched her ticket to the promotion with a convincing win on Dana White’s Contender Series. Rodriguez is a fighter that will find some success in the UFC and notch multiple wins.
She is well rounded and does a great job of having variety in her game. She is a crisp striker at all levels and will have a significant advantage in that area of this fight. Her boxing will simply be levels above that of Hansen. The striking will certainly be her path of least resistance, and if I were her coaches, that’s where I would dictate this fight take place. While I have no doubts Rodriguez can take this fight down if she wants to, I do not believe it would be wise to. I do not believe Hansen has the striking to take a decision from Rodriguez.
Rodriguez will be the better wrestler, but this is a spot where I am quite certain Hansen will be looking for takedowns as well. Particularly when the striking starts going the way of Rodriguez. The only real advantage Hansen has in this fight will be on the mat.
Hansen was able to get a slick armbar in her UFC debut, but has a pair of decision losses since then. She is not a fighter that will often look good in the eyes of the judges. The stand up portions of this fight will be more evidence of that. I do have difficulty seeing the paths to victory for Hansen outside of finding another submission. She is at the lower level of the UFC roster, and is just 7-5 as a pro MMA fighter.
Ultimately it will be Rodriguez winning this fight, and it should be on the feet. She will land more often and certainly land the more effective strikes. This line is much tighter than it should be, and that is due to a bad opening line. Hansen opened as a moderate favorite and the public sharply has shifted Rodriguez to being the favorite.
