Ahead of the scrap, reached out to several pro fighters to make their picks for the main event. The pros believe Namajunas will be too much for Ribas on the feet and get the victory to return to the win column. Fighter Picks Rose Namajunas vs Amanda Ribas:

Max Griffin, UFC welterweight: Rose Namajunas, probably by decision.

Dan Ige, UFC featherweight: Thug Rose, I think she looked good in her last fight against Fiorot even though she lost and I think I can beat Ribas here.

Billy Quarantillo, UFC featherweight: Probably Amanda Ribas. It’s hard to say with Namajunas as you never know what she’s going to look like.

Kurt Holobaugh, UFC lightweight: I’m going to go with Rose Namajunas by decision. I think she can outstrike Ribas.

Bryan Battle, UFC welterweight: I’m rooting for Rose, I’m a big fan of Rose but I don’t know where she is at mentally so I got Amanda Ribas. I think Ribas can have some success wrestling.

Julian Erosa, UFC featherweight: Rose hasn’t fought in a bit and it’s always a concern on if she will perform, so I’ll go with Amanda Ribas on that one. I think it will go the distance, and Ribas can edge it out.

Steven Peterson, former UFC featherweight: Rose Namajunas by decision, but It’s tough because you never know what she will look like.

Davey Grant, UFC bantamweight: I’ll go with Rose in that one. I think Namajunas is the better striker and can keep it standing.
