Bet on UFC 185 Odds

This fight is a classic striker vs. grappler contest. Esparza has been able to get to the top with her wrestling and submission abilities on the ground. Jedrzejczyk has been able to pick up wins with her technical striking. She is definitely the longer of the two fighters and will look to keep the fight standing and keep Esparza at distance. The champion will look to get inside that reach and bring the fight to the ground. The key to the fight will be which fighter can dictate where the fight takes place.
