Prediction

Brandon Lewis is a special striker — he’s a black belt in both karate and taekwondo. His level of output, aggressiveness, and willingness to just throw everything in his tool shed is second to none. When watching him, he goes from 100 to 200 and doesn’t let up. He does get tired as the fight goes on but never stops pressing the action.

While Lewis is a special athlete on the feet Mo Miller is a monster wrestler and a dominant grappler. However, Lewis is a better grappler than Miller is a better striker. With that said, Miller is very capable of catching Lewis on the feet. I didn’t think this fight would be that close coming into the tape as I thought it was all Miller. That’s not the case though as this is an extremely close fight. Both guys are coming into this fight with the other being their toughest opponent to date, so the result could go either way. I like how Miller has been way more active and what beats a frantic striking pace? Putting that striker on their ass. That’s what I’m predicting Miller to do.
