Kaufman on Pena’s path to capturing the belt:
“Her advantage is gonna be and try and work for some of her own takedowns. I think put Amanda on her back and try and work some ground and pound. Maybe work to her back and get a choke.
“I don’t see Pena getting a decision so I think she has to get a finish. If she was gonna do that, it will likely be on the ground with a choke of some sort.”
