Free Boxing Pick:

Rose Namajunas -200

Carla is a good fighter, but in this title fight Esparza is coming in and is outmatched completely. Namajunas is throwing 4.01 significant strikes per minute vs 2.34 from Esparza and that could definitely be a telling side, but also giving up the reach and height advantage does not bode well for Esparza either. Still, the scrappy underdog is more accurate with the strikes and that could make the difference, but in this cases most likely not. UFC 274 Winner Prediction, Rose Namajunas.
