Prediction

With no disrespect to the skills of Huang I’m very confident in Adrian Yanez. The only real advantage Huang has in the wrestling. I’m not even sure he can take Yanez down and he sure won’t be able to hold him down. Yanez is far more technical and faster with his hands and is just overall levels above Huang. Yanez has also fought the far better competition where the best record Huang has beat was 15-7. The pick is Yanez and a very confident pick at that.
