Prediction

This is a closely contested battle between two very similar women. Both are primarily strikers, who are more than capable however on the mat. Jasudavicius has the technical advantage while Polastri brings more power. Polastri is coming up a weight class against a bigger and longer Jasudavicius, which is always a concern. I can definitely see size playing a factor in this fight. It’s going to be tough for Polastri to get inside on the long Jasudavicius with her flat footwork. Polastri could have success later in the fight but can’t see her winning in the early rounds. I’m taking Jasudavicius.
