A pair of women’s strawweights two MMA-mad nations will cap the preliminary card of UFC Fight Night this Saturday when Amanda Lemos takes on Mizuki Inoue live from the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas.
Lemos is 7-1-1 as an MMA fighter, and is 1-1 since joining the UFC. She made her debut in a KO loss to Leslie Smith in July of 2017, then served a two-year doping suspension for stanozol. A win over Miranda Granger via first round rear-naked choke in December was her return, and all seven of her career wins have come via finish: five by KO, two by submission.
Mizuki is 14-5 in MMA, and won her UFC debut over Yanan Wu via split decision last August. Turning 26 years old this week, the Nagoya, Japan native has won six of her last seven fights, mostly in the Invicta and Deep promotions. All nine of her wins via stoppage are by submission, and her resume is deep as she began her pro MMA career at just 16 years old.
Here are the betting odds and bet splits at DraftKings Sportsbook for Amanda Lemos vs. Mizuki Inoue at UFC Fight Night from Las Vegas on August 22nd.
Amanda Lemos: +110 (38% of action, 43% of bets)
Mizuki Inoue: -137 (62% of action, 57% of bets)
Here are the DraftKings DFS salaries for Amanda Lemos vs. Mizuki Inoue tonight:
Amanda Lemos: $7,600
Mizuki Inoue: $8,600
The activity of Lemos might be worth having her rostered, as she picked up 68 significant strikes and a takedown even in her only career UFC loss. Plus she’s clearly shown stopping ability on the independent circuit. Inoue brings more experience and a better record, but wouldn’t seem to be as strong statistically. A nice spot for an underdog on a card where you’ll need to find some.
