Top Combate Global picks for Aug. 12 fight card
Before tuning in to Friday's Combate Global fight card, you need to see the picks from SportsLine's MMA insider Andrew Gombas. With more than 1,400 selections tracked by the third-party monitoring service Bet MMA, he has shown a 6 percent return on investment for his followers. Over the past two years, his followers have netted a profit of more than $10,000.
For Friday's card, Gombas is picking Rivarola to get the win over Lopez in the main event. The two women know each other well, having trained and sparred against each other in the past. While Lopez showed better in last year's women's tournament, she's been inactive since while Rivarola rebounded over Stephanie Frausto in December.
"Claire Lopez and Camila Rivarola have similar fighting styles. They are aggressive and well-rounded. I believe Rivarola has the better kick-boxing base and favor her to get the victory," Gombas said. Stream the card on Paramount+ now.
