Always Aiming Higher
Bookmakers ensure they have every angle covered when catering for the needs of sports betting punters and you can have your say on a flood of markets. Back the winner of each fight as a single or throw together your best and build a big priced accumulator. If you do your homework and get things right on the night you could be in line for a hefty pay-out.
After more? Of course you are. Backers are nothing if not ambitious… and we’re always looking for the bigger prizes, desperate to deliver a killer blow to those smug bookies. Aim higher and bet on one of many specials, including any fight to go the distance or not; the number of rounds we’ll get – over or under a pre-decided round – or the method of victory sphere.
The latter allows you the chance to back who you think will win and how you expect them to get the job done – submission, points or knockout. It’s double the effort of just calling who will have their hand raised at the end, but the rewards are far greater.
If you do land a method of victory bet, you will certainly deserve the cash that will be making its way into your online betting account balance. Do your research, checking out the form and how your selection has won past battles, the extra bit of effort on your part will certainly make all the difference when it comes to making your decision.

Feenom Unbeaten in Five
Canadian born Felicia Spencer flies the flag for the city of her birth, Montreal, but she has based her fighting career in Orlando, Florida and represents The Jungle MMA Team, operating under the guidance of head coach Mike Lee.
She’s a genuine all-rounder, with her skills bringing together experience in the fields of Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do, being a respected blackbelt in each of the latter two disciplines. Since making the decision to move into the world of mixed martial arts, Feenom has enjoyed real success and travels to Oklahoma with a perfect five-fight record.
Taking victory in each of her previous starts, the qualified math teacher has won two by submission, one by knockout and the other two on points, proving she can mix it up and fight, or use her skills to impress the scoring judges. That will give her opponent plenty to think about in the build-up as they attempt to set-out a strategy for victory.
Spencer Arrives on Form
Felicia made her debut with a TKO win over Rachel Wiley in Kansas City back in 2015, elbows and punches doing the damage to get her off on the right path. She doubled up when beating Madison McElhaney on decision next time, taking a three-round unanimous verdict two years later. The treble was complete when making light work of Amy Coleman to go 3-0 in the summer of 2017 thanks to another impressive submission.
It has already been a busy 2018 for the fighter and the meeting with Sorenson will be her third outing of the year. She opened with a points win over Akeela Al-Hameed to go 4-0 in January on Invicta FC 27 and continued her 100% record when dealing out a submission defeat to Helena Kolesnyk on 30, a rear-naked choke the difference on that occasion.
Supporters won’t have any trouble following the form fighter with their hard-earned cash, but calling the method of victory will be tricky, as it appears she’s comfortable doing it all. Her last four read points-submission-points-submission. If we are to follow that pattern the scorecard looks a decent call.
What’s Worth Knowing About Pam Sorenson
Pam ‘Bam’ Sorenson stands only 5ft 5inches tall but what the featherweight MMA fighter lacks in height, she more than makes up for in aggression and bravery. The Minnesota native fights out of The Cellar Fight & Fitness Gym and brings a 7-2 record.
Taking a closer look at her stats to date sheds a little light on the kind of approach we can expect from the 32-year-old on fight night. Of her seven wins, she has claimed five by decision, one by submission with the spare a KO verdict. That suggests, like her opponent, she has the power to end things early but is comfortable in a tactical affair and can hold her own over the duration. Taking the fight to go the distance would be a fair tactic for punters to adopt in this one.
Each of her two career defeats so far have also come on the scorecards and, given her fighting style, that’s no real surprise. It would take an opponent of real power and experience to finish Sorenson early and, on paper, Spencer doesn’t look in that league yet.
Bam Fighting Back
Her losses came against Shanna Young over five rounds in August 2016 and Ediane Gomes over three rounds on Invicta FC 23 last May. Since then she has bounced back with a couple of victories to get her career on track, scoring a first round win over Helena Kolesnyk in July 2017 and split decision vs Jan Finney 12 months ago.
Will she complete the hat-trick and claim a major scalp in taking Spencer? There’s no doubt Bam has the ability and confidence going into this contest but her opponent has been far more active this year and that should make the difference if this proves as tight as we expect.
Keep your stakes to interest level and follow the clues given by the stats of both gladiators. We’re happy to do so and go with a Felicia Spencer points decision victory. Whatever you back, this bout will provide serious entertainment from the buzzer. Personally, we think it’s Sorenson’s to lose…
