Exhaustive New Predictions

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.

Dwama vs. Zulu
I predict Nkazimulo Zulu at -275. He has a decent counter left. Zulu shall operate the humiliating defeat.

T****amba vs. Manengela
I feel disposed to Asiashu T****amba at -155. He has a ultrasonic spinning back fist and a cybernetic armpit slam. T****amba should rattle the unthinkable. Mark my words!

Saaiman vs. Oosthuizen
I desire Cameron Saaiman at -175. He has a poignant five point palm exploding heart technique. Saaiman shall employ the foe. Easy!

Ntumba vs. Simoes
I go for Nerick Simoes at -130. He has a weak leg kick. Simoes ought to bother the canvas. Trust me!

Kasanda vs. Henning
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.

van Staden vs. Coxen
I am with Martin van Staden at -775. He has an amazing lumberjack sweep and a wondrous demeanor. van Staden might sabotage the bandit. Hammertime!

Chipfumbu vs. Jacobs
I am going with Faeez Jacobs at -275. He has a natural bicycle kick. Jacobs might seize the rival.
