Prediction: wrong Knight   wrong Submission   wrong Round 2  

Moggly has tough leg kicks and is willing to fire them on repeat. He has a sharp 1-1-2 which was the combo that dropped Sicillia. I think the crispness and power of his striking is underrated but I think he doesn't have the kind of style to win a firefight. He has a few tools he utilizes well from a shell, but he doesn't have much versatility outside of that. Knight's style is one of chaos, and in an environment of chaos the need for clean looks at techniques becomes a weakness. I see an ugly stand up fight where Benitez is forced to respond more than he would like to the aggressive charing of Knight, but in the 2nd Knight pushes into his space, clinch to TD and gets an RNC from a back take.
