UFC on ESPN 33: Joanne Wood vs. Alexa Grasso Betting Information
Joanne Wood just wants to get back on her winning rhythm entering this match after losing back-to-back matches against Lauren Murphy and Talia Santos. The last time that Wood experienced a win was against Jessica Eye in 257 to kick-off 2021. “Jojo” has been known to be a resilient fighter and tough to break even at the age of 35 years old. Her knockout power has regressed in time and the last time she won via knockout was way back in June 2016. Wood improved her ground game in time and she will most likely look to score more points with the judges.
Alexa Grasso has been on a roll winning her last two fights against Maycee Barber and Ji Yeon Kim. She has been very cunning in her matches and it was easy for the judges to pick her to win. The 28-year-old fighter from Guadalajara, Jalisco in Mexico looks to take her place as one of the top prospects in the flyweight division and she is a few wins away from earning a title shot. Grasso also carries a knockout punch but the last time she took down an opponent with her hands was back in 2014. Her ground game needs to improve as she continues to climb up the rankings.
