Song Yadong vs Chris Gutierrez Betting Prediction 

This might not be a super popular pick, but I believe Gutierrez is going to get the job done in this fight. Song Yadong at times has really struggled with leg kicks and that is a big part of Gutierrez’s gameplan and he’s going to really wear him down here. As the fight goes on, and with Yadong’s legs gone, that is going to be the difference as Gutierrez is going to get the job done. Back Gutierrez on the money line to cash here.
