Prediction

First off, this is a great fight between two great prospects and this should be the main event. While both are very good, Allen may be a bit better everywhere. Allen has fought much better competition consistently and has grown into a much better fighter. With that said, Jeffery is good but still growing. This is a good fight but it’s too soon for Jeffery. I think Allen has the advantage on the feet and on the mat but I believe he will use more of his wrestling and grappling to get the win.
