Rayanne Amanda Analsyis
With a professional record of 14-6, Rayanne Amanda enters this fight as the more battle-tested competitor when it comes to UFC experience. Her 3.67 strikes landed per minute illustrate solid technical skills, peppering opponents with shots from range before closing the distance. A stout 31% striking accuracy rate only augments her standup prowess. However, grappling deficiencies have plagued Amanda’s progression up the strawweight ranks.
She attempts only 1 takedown per round, converting on just 25% of her tries. Even more glaring, Amanda’s takedown defense sits at a porous 0% rate. Strong wrestlers have had their way, grounding Amanda with ease once in the clinch. Amanda’s recent loss against Gomes highlighted both her resilience and areas where she needs improvement, particularly in her defensive game. Heading into this matchup, Amanda must reinforce her defensive wrestling and grappling awareness if she hopes to derail her opponent’s game plan. Pressure to keep this fight standing will hang over her for all 3 rounds.
Talita “Problem Child” Alencar Analysis
Facing Amanda is Talita Alencar, who brings a deceptively strong 4-0-1 record into just her sophomore UFC appearance. Don’t let her lack of fights fool you; Alencar’s aggressive style has already proven a handful for previous opponents. While she lands only 2.33 strikes per round, Alencar’s 38% striking accuracy illustrates patience in picking her shots, rifling punches down the pipe once in range. More impressively, her grappling averages an absurd 4 takedowns landed per round at a 16% accuracy clip.
Favored to plant her opponents on the mat early and often, Alencar unleashes vicious ground and pound, showcasing a strong top game. Moreover, she has earned 3 career submission victories, constantly hunting for openings to cinch up fight-ending holds once in control. Her recent draw against Luciano showed her tenacity but also revealed areas for improvement, particularly in her striking defense. Riding momentum into UFC 233, she poses problems for Amanda if able to implement her wrestling game plan successfully.
