Shane’s Free Pick
Holloway has the gas tank, and I expect his chin is going to hold up against Allen. Holloway is averaging 7.29 significant strikes per minute and he’s going to put the pressure on Allen here. Look for Allen to weardown as the fight goes on, and that’s when Holloway is going to pour it on. Back Holloway on the money line.
