Brandon Moreno vs Brandon Royval Betting Prediction

Moreno is a pretty sizable favorite heading into this game and for good reason, he is going to get the job done in this game. Royval is a fun fighter to watch, but his game has a ton of holes, and he’s going to struggle in this fight. Moreno is going to get his hits in on Royval here. I also don’t trust the Royval takedown defense, and that is going to be the difference here as Moreno is going to get the job done. Back Moreno by decision.
