Cummins says she has been working on improving her standup skills, but admits she's primarily known for her elite submission game.
"I think people will notice that my footwork and hands will be better," Cummins said. "My ground is getting better every day of course my favorite. I favor the ground. I like standing up a lot too. A lot of fights go to the ground even in the women's field. There is not a lot of big time strikers if you really look.
"I have been working mostly striking in this fight, so I am going to be well prepared for her."
As for Gutierrez, she's hoping for a standup war. She's quite aware that the casual fan loves to see a standup slugfest, so she's hoping Cummins doesn't turn the fight into a ground battle.
"I definitely feel that I have the experience edge," Gutierrez said. "Just being in there and going the rounds, 5 minute rounds. I definitely have that I have been fighting for 10 years. In MMA, that doesn't really matter at all. It takes 1 wrong move. Submissions happen, knockouts happen so I think your right about the styles and stuff. I think it's a good match.
"I think the fans are going to like it as well. I just pray to God she doesn't sit there and try to get me down the whole time. You know people start booing. I really hope that doesn't happen. I hope she stays standing with me for a little bit and we can put on a good show so that next time BAMMA has more girls on the card."
BAMMA CEO Brett Roberts is excited about the fight because he knows Gutierrez has a lot to prove, especially after fight fans got on her via Twitter for dropping out of some fights in the past.
"The girl fight between Rachael Cummins and Michele Guiterrez that is really going to be an awesome fight," Roberts said. "Michele is really coming to make a statement tonight after being ridiculed a little bit in the social media world. I think she is going to do really well."
Cummins fights Gutierrez on Oct. 25 at Commerce Casino in Commerce, Calif.
"I know she's a big name and that's part of the reason why I wanted to fight her," Cummins said of the veteran striker. "I know she has quick hands and more experience than me, but I think I'm going to be more dangerous and a better athlete all around. I just feel like I'm going to be more dangerous in all aspects of the fight, so I'm feeling pretty good about it.
"I would love to have a knockout or a submission. Either one of those I would be fine with. I definitely don't want it to go to a decision. Yeah I just want to finish her."
