The upcoming UFC 292: Sterling vs. Overeem will feature the highly anticipated match between Zhang Weili and Amanda Lemos. Both fighters have impressive records, with Zhang boasting a 20-1 record in professional MMA and Lemos having a 12-1-1 professional record. The fight is sure to be an exciting one for fans across the world, as both fighters are known for their aggressive style of fighting.
Zhang Weili has really been on a roll since her debut in 2013, going undefeated until she faced Jessica Andrade at UFC Fight Night 158 back in August 2019 where she lost by unanimous decision after five rounds of intense fighting. Since then however, Zhang has made an amazing comeback winning her last three fights against Joanna Jedrzejczyk (UFC 248), Michelle Waterson (UFC Fight Night 171) and Rose Namajunas (UFC 261). Her victories over these top ranked opponents prove that she is one of the best female mixed martial artists out there today and should not be taken lightly by anyone stepping into the octagon with her.
On the other side we have Amanda Lemos who has been making waves in her own right having only gone down twice since her pro MMA debut back in 2011; once against Nina Ansaroff at Invicta FC 5: Penne vs Sugiyama and again more recently against Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 253: Adesanya vs Costa just last year’s September 2020. Both losses were via decisions which proves that while Lemos may not be as dominant as some of her opponents like Zhang, she can still put up a good fight even against superior opposition if given enough time to do so.
Looking at current odds from various online sportsbooks it seems like most people favor Zhang Weili to win this matchup -390 compared to +270 for Amanda Lemos; indicative of how knowledgeable they are about both fighter’s skill sets or levels thereof which makes sense considering how big names both fighters have become lately within the sport overall and especially among fans here in North America due to their entertaining performances inside the octagon whenever they step into it regardless if its victory or defeat that awaits them afterwards when all is said done!
All things considered though my prediction goes towards Zhang Weili (-390) taking home yet another victory come UFC 292 despite all odds being stacked up against him due his recent track record as well impressive physical advantages over his opponent such height reach advantage amongst others including but not limited too power punching capacity experience etcetera……all these factors work together make me believe he’ll prevail come Saturday May 8th 2021 when two collide!
