    So far this year we have had 21 WMMA fights and only 4 finishes. One fight was Cyborg another was Shevchenko mismatch.
    We have had 5 FLW fights with 3 finishes.
    14 BW fights and 6 finishes.

    Finish Rates for 2018:
    FLW: 60%
    BW: 43%
    WMMA: 19%

    If you go to your local/regional MMA event you will see many finishes but this doesn't mean they're any better than WMMA fighters, because the skill level in WMMA, at least in UFC, is too high to get many finishes. No one in WMMA is such a scrub to get finished with Ezekiel's or Omoplata's, that only happens at heavyweight.

    With so many skilled fighters it's hard to catch people with unexpected set ups, everyone is well aware and well rounded in WMMA, sorry.

    In 2017 Flyweight had the 4th highest percentage of finishes.

    Still early in 2018 though. It's less consistent than other divisions.

    But TS was comparing WMMA to male BW and FW who have objectively better skill than WMMA and still have higher finish rates. Does not compute??

    Always bet on over 2.5 in WMMA fight. Only don't do it when Cyborg, Rose or Andrade is fighting. All others is fine. Bet and laugh all the way to the bank.
