Erin Blanchfield Expected to Win on March 30

Erin Blanchfield has suffered only one loss in her entire career. It happened back in 2019 when Tracy Cortez beat her by a split decision in Invicta. Since then, Blanchfield is 9-0 with six of those wins happening in the UFC.

Three of those UFC wins happened by submission – vs. JJ Aldrich, Molly McCann, and Jessica Andrade. This isn’t much of a surprise, given that Blanchfield is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, who lands 2.86 takedowns per fight on average.

She hasn’t won a fight by KO since her Invicta days, but this doesn’t mean she’s not good striking-wise. On the contrary, Blanchfield is a well-rounded fighter who also has great stamina.

She lands 5.58 significant strikes per minute, which is the 6th best number in the UFC Women’s Flyweight division. One of the fighters who’s sitting higher on that list is her next opponent, Manon Fiorot. The French fighter is landing 6.05 significant strikes every 60 seconds.

Can Manon Fiorot Upset the Odds on Saturday?

Manon Fiorot is 11-1, with her only loss happening on her professional debut, when Leah McCourt beat her by a split decision. Since then, she’s won 10 fights straight, six of which were UFC fights.

It’s a great record, but she wasn’t too impressive in her last couple of fights. Each of her last four bouts was won by decision. In her most recent fight, the French fighter defeated Rose Namajunas in Paris, in a fight in which she landed just two significant strikes more than her opponent. Plus, Thug Rose injured her hand early on in the fight.

Now, she’s fighting against an American fighter in America and bookmakers don’t think she’s going to do great. She’s a +171 underdog in the UFC on ESPN 54 main event.

Erin Blanchfield vs. Manon Fiorot Prediction

Who’s going to win the Erin Blanchfield vs. Manon Fiorot fight on Saturday? Our pick is Blanchfield. She’s just way better in all aspects of fighting than Fiorot. Sure, the French fighter is big and powerful, but Blanchfield has already defeated many such fighters, including JJ Aldrich, Molly McCann, etc.

Pick: Erin Blanchfield
