UFC on ESPN 40: Brogan Walker vs. Juliana Miller Betting Information
Before coming into the TUF house, Brogan Walker (7-2 win-loss) broke her two-game losing skid with a one-round, rear-naked choke submission over Emilee King in Invicta FC 44 in August 2021. But before losing two consecutive matches, Walker strung six straight wins against various fighters in Invicta and Pacific Xtreme Combat. She received pre-match hype thanks to her vast experience, but she was unimpressive during her stay in the TUF house. Walker won via majority decision over Hannah Guy in the quarterfinals. She cruised past Laura Gallardo (unanimous decision) in the semifinals to notch a ticket to the finals, where she will face Juliana Miller.
Winning her first two fights via submission, Miller (2-1) wants her matches to go to the mat and dominate her foes. Before going into the TUF house, the 26-year-old MMA fighter came off a unanimous decision loss to Claire Guthrie. The two met again inside the house, and Miller gained her revenge, decisioning Guthrie to make it through the semifinals and meet Kaytlin Neil. Miller submitted Neil in two rounds to set up the final against Walker. She may lack the fighting experience that her rival has in the upcoming finale, but do not take The Killer for granted. She is capable of exploiting her foe’s weaknesses on the ground. And when the fight goes to the mat and looks for an opportunity that could set up her killer submissions when her opponent is vulnerable.
