Damn, I want Bessette to smash (CES bias) but the Peruvian tends to do you in (if you ain't paid them yet).

Prediction: correct Barzola   correct Decision  

kind of surprised barzola is the favorite, but i guess that win over benitez looks pretty good now and bessette did just get finished. also seems like bessette relies on finding a finish and barzola has never been finished.

Prediction: correct Barzola   correct Decision  

Benitez has looked pretty on fire lately and Barzola was able to take him down. He's supremely well conditioned and shouldn't have too much trouble taking Bessette down and grinding him down for another decision win.

A plucky attempt from Bessette following his NC will see him fall just short via decision loss to Barzola
