Maybe, that was another tough one to pick for me.  I can easily see that going either way. This was one of the tougher DWCS to pick for me. Not that I’ve even picked well before but my poor to average picks have this far come very easily before this event.

I was surprised Mikey to see the percentage that wide on the Reed/Anglickas fight. I assume just because Reed lost his contender fight the first time. But I think it's a very close fight.

Im on Reed too Mikey. It all depends if he can stop the takedown. I think he's the better striker.

Yeah, the striking is what swayed me to pick Reed too!  I like that he trains with Wonderboy and Weidman too

Completely surprised Reed is going for takedowns. He seems the much more fluid striker. Then Anglickas lands a few at the end of the round and Reed seems bothered by them and is bleeding from nose.

Reeds a wrestler by base though. Instinct easily takes over at times. High pressure fight for these guys.
