Feeling Moraes in this one— Eryk Anders (@erykanders) June 9, 2019
Picking Marlon for this one just because it's his weight. He has more experience here, more experience carrying the weight, punching at the weight, getting hit at it, the pacing... That being said Cejudo might decide to wrestle and make me look stupid #UFC238— Louis Smolka (@LASTSAMURAIUFC) June 9, 2019
