Micol Di Segni is 9-4. She lost her last bout to Elizabeth Rodrigues. Di Segni’s last opponent was in much better form than Tyrell. The chalk wins.

Jasmine Favero -375 vs Awa Sow +300
Jasmine Favero has a 1-0 record. The record is light on pro fights. Don’t let it fool you into thinking Favero is a false favorite.
Jasmine went 5-1 in her six amateur bouts. Favero has won via decision, forcing an armbar submit, the armbar seems to be her favorite grappling move, and knocking out her opponents via punches.
Awa Sow is 1-1. Sow beat Miriam Santana in her first bout before Senna van der Veerdonk took her down in Sow’s second. Awa lost her last via an armbar submission. Favero is licking her chops.
Cage Warriors 144 Pick: Jasmine Favero
Dylan Hazan vs Jefferson Machado De Filippis
No odds yet on what should be one of the most entertaining fights of the night. No doubt, Hazan will be the favorite.
The likely chalk is 9-0 counting his lone amateur bout. Hazan has won via knockout, ground and pound, decision, and forcing his opponent to quit. Jefferson Machado De Filippis is 2-1.
The predicted underdog has some ability. He’s won a fight via rear naked choke. If the odds on Dylan make him an underlay, consider backing De Filippis. As it stands now, Hazan is the play.
Cage Warriors 144 Pick: Dylan Hazan
Carlos Pedersoli Jr. -150 vs Madars Fleminas +120
Both competitors in this match have terrific records. Pedersoli Jr., the slight favorite, is 13-4. Pedersoli Jr. has won his last couple of bouts, knocking out Christian Corujo with a left hook and knocking out Anatoly Safronov with a midsection kick.
Madars Fleminas is 10-3. Fleminas has also won his last couple of bouts. Fleminas won both via punches. Pedersoli Jr. appears to have more stand up technique. But Fleminas will be hard to beat. Give the underdog a chance.
Cage Warriors 144 Pick: Madars Fleminas
Dominique Wooding -275 vs Michele Martignoni +215 | Bantamweight Title
