Taiyilake Nueraji Is only 23 and his defensive technique is next to zero, UFC can bring him up slowly. I think the UFC knows he could eventually become a star, his fighting style is incredibly fun.

Zhu vs. Ando
Kangjie Zhu, TKO, R3
Fun fight between two guys that come to bang. Kangjie is one of the best chinese prospects even if that loss doesn't look good on paper. He can do a bit of everything but he is mostly known for his explosiveness and power. I like Ando too, but it may be to late for him at 34. He is a tough dude but his chin will likely not hold up a lot longer. I expect Zhu to eventually find the finish

Haraguchi vs. Hong
Shin Haraguchi, TKO, R1
We all saw what Haraguchi was able to do at a weight class where he was under sized, so I expect him to cruise this year. Hong is an underwhelming, he is mostly there for being part of Korean Zombie gim. He struggles with wrestling so this should be easy for Haraguchi

Batebolati vs. Kim
Bahatebole Batebolati, DEC
Incredibly underwhelming fight, with both guys having incredibly disapointing RTU stints last year. Bahatebole milked a DQ and then couldn't make weight while Kim got flatlined by Nueraji. I am leaning Bahatebole cause he theoretically trains with a better team but I really don't trust him
