There really isn’t anything to get a read on Wolf from considering footage of her in MMA is limited (read: non-existent outside of a few training clips) and she’s making her MMA debut. Tennant is an excellent fighter, which is the reason I’m taking her. Tennant is primarily a striker which does give Wolf an opportunity, since she is a well-accomplished boxer. She has plenty of experience there, but Tennant should be the more well-rounded mixed martial artist. The pick is Tennant.
