The main event looks like a one-sided matchup, but don’t sleep on Spencer. She is tough, resilient and her wrestling is serious. The champion may have to prove she can stave off some takedown attempts if she’s going to defend her title and score another memorable KO.
In any case, the final battle could prove to be more competitive than the oddsmakers suggest.
