Justine Kish is about a 3-1 favorite to Conquer Ji Yeon Kim in UFC on FOX 27 on Saturday night.
Kish is 6-1 in her career, but she’s coming off a loss to Felice Herrig in June of this past year, while Kim is 6-1-2 and coming off a loss to Lucie Pudilova. This fight is just one of six on the FS1 portion of the first card card, leading up into a four-fight principal card that features Ronaldo Souza vs. Derek Brunson. Let’s look at Kish vs. Kim and UFC picks.

Justine Kish (6-1, 2-1 UFC)
Kish won her first four pro fights before she made her UFC introduction in January of 2016. Kish won a unanimous decision against Nina Ansaroff and Kish followed up with a win over Ashley Yoder at December of 2016. The primary loss for Kish in her career happened in June of this past year, as she dropped a unanimous decision to Felice Herrig.
Kish will possess the home crowd edge on Saturday, as she fights in Charlotte. “It does make me somewhat nervous to know so many people from here are going to be coming into the fight,” said Kish into the Gaston Gazette,”However, to be honest, it may be one person out there or even a thousand people and I am thinking the same thing. I would like to wear a fantastic show every time.” Kish will be fighting Charlotte for the second time in her career, as she fought Grady Cole as a recreational in 2007.
Kish said that she has been training with longtime coach Jeff Jimmo, to prepare for this struggle against Kim. “I typically don’t see a lot of footage of my competitions,” said Kish,”But I have watched a lot of footage . We’ve analyzed it multiple times and I believe I will have a great strategy.”
Ji Yeo Kim (6-1-2, 0-1 UFC)
Kish was a pro since 2013. She fought to two draws in her first two pro fights and she’s 6-1 since. She’s three wins by entry and two by knockout. She has one first round end.
The lineup on this fight is surprisingly packed with Kish about a 3-1 favourite. I do think the move up in weight will help Kish, as she looked weak against Herrig and it is always nice to have the home audience edge. Kim landed some shots against Pudilova in her UFC debut, but still lost a unanimous choice. I lean Kish in this fight, but I think it will be a competitive fight and I am certainly not comfortable laying 3-1 in a struggle I believe will be shut. I think playing the rounds would be the better thing to do. The rounds option is recorded at 2.5 with the more recorded at -260. Neither one of these two fighters have much power, and that I can not see either one getting an end unless one of these makes a major error and gets trapped in a hold. I will take the rounds to cover the total.
