Shane’s Free Pick
Holland really could be challenging for a belt if he just had a little bit of higher fight IQ. There are times in fights he makes decisions that really make everyone scratch their head and wonder what he is doing. He is the better striker though, and he’s going to have no issue in this one. He is going to make the smart decisions in this fight, and his power is going to be too much here. Back Holland as the underdog.
