Shane’s Free Pick
These are two similar fighters, and this should be a very entertaining fight. Kara-France has the knockout power, but Albazi is the better grappler, and he should be able to control the fight with that. Albazi should have the cardio in this fight and he’s going to find success here with the grappling. He’s going to avoid the knockout power of Kara-France and that will be the difference here. Back Albazi on the money line.
