Jessica Andrade is the slight favorite in this fight, however; Blanchfield has yet to show any weakness in the UFC.

UFC Fight Night 219 Preliminary Card best bets
Khusein Askhabov ML over Jamall Emmers (-155)
Khusein Askhabov comes into this fight with an MMA record of 23-0. This will be his official UFC debut. He has won 16 of his 23 career fights by finish, 6 by KO/TKO and 10 by submission. This includes his last 4 fights which were all wins by finish.
Even though Askhabov is making his debut in the UFC, he has been dominant so far in MMA, while Jamall Emmers is just 1-2 in his last 3 fights. For that reason, backing Askhabov will be the play.
Lina Lansberg vs Mayra Bueno Silva – Fight to go the Distance – Yes (-150)
Mayra Bueno Silva is one of the biggest favorites on the entire card, making her money line not worth the risk. She has seen 4 of her 8 UFC fights go the distance and 3 of her last 4 UFC fights. Lina Lansberg has seen her last 7 fights in a row go the distance and has never lost by submission, which is what Silva is best at. For that reason, backing this fight to also go the distance will be the play.
