Fight prediction

According to bookmaker analysts, Tafa is the clear favorite for the upcoming fight. In general, we can agree with them. Lane is a good fighter, but he still lacks the experience of playing in the strongest mixed martial arts tournament. And the Australian has been producing excellent results lately. A former rugby player must defeat an ex-American football player.

Our prediction is an early victory for Tafa at 1.74 in Mostbet.
