Prediction

Both have fought good enough competition on the regional circuit. Robbins has lost to UFC fighter Hannah Cifers and former UFC fighter Pearl Gonzalez and Goldy beat current UFC fighter, Gillian Robertson. This is clearly a striker vs. grappler fight as the striker in Goldy has solid takedown defense whereas the grappler in Robbins has limited striking defense. Goldy is technical and the all-around better fighter with more tools so she is my pick.

Next: Brendan Loughnane vs. Bill Algeo
