The Women’s Bantamweight division takes center stage, as “Sheetara” Mayra Bueno Silva takes on Yanan “Mulan” Wu. Coming off a defeat to Manon Fiorot, Silva will look rebound. Having failed to win since 2020, Silva needs to avoid another defeat or she will further diminish her positioning in the Bantamweight division. Meanwhile, Wu comes into this fight with her back up against the wall. A loser of two straight and three of the last four, Wu’s UFC tenure all but hangs in the balance.

As for a prediction, I have Silva winning. While this fight could be close, mainly due to Silva’s antics, I ultimately believe the Brazilian will land the more significant strikes of the fight. Yanan offers volume, but there’s no pop on her strikes and she’s already lost three of her four UFC fights. On the other hand, Silva has excellent grappling, but she prefers to fight on the feet. With some pop, an iron chin and a real knack for egging on her opponent, Silva is as game as they come. The only worry I have, is Silva antics outweighing her ability to throw down. Either way, Silva is a talent and I believe she’ll showcase in this fight. So with that said, I predict Silva wins via decision.
