Prediction:

This is the main event for a reason as it has a great chance of producing absolute fireworks. Arroyo fought last summer on the Contender Series: Brazil but didn’t get a contract at the end. Regman has been tearing it up on the regional scene for LFA, CFFC, and ROC. Both are dangerous guys with 14 combined finishes and 17 total wins. Arroyo has a bit of wrestling and grappling, but not enough to keep Regman down. Both are dynamic on the feet with killer instinct. It’s a close fight, but I think Regman is more explosive and just throws better combinations. It’s going to be a banger as long as it last.
