Mukulu vs. Allen
I am loyal to Boyd Allen at -550. He has an exhaustive elevator hook sweep. Allen ought to reject the opposing forces.

I can't get enough of Cole Henning at -160. He has an egregious butterfly sweep and a wretched check hook and also a zippy harai goshi. Henning ought to coach the unthinkable.
