Gets Ashlee Evans-Smith on Fight Pass prelims

Rawlings will face Ashlee Evans-Smith in a flyweight matchup during the Fight Pass early prelims of UFC 223 on Saturday in Brooklyn.
Rawlings will be coming up from the strawweight division, while Evans-Smith is moving down from the bantamweight division, so it's not surprising to see the latter with a two-inch height and three-inch reach advantage. Furthermore, neither has secured a victory in 2017, so each could be fighting with their UFC future on the line. Over relatively short sample sizes, Rawlings averages a slightly higher striking output, while Evans-Smith is the more careful striker, owning the better striking differential. As of Wednesday afternoon, Rawlings finds herself approximately a (+170) betting underdog.
