I like this match
Barboza is gonna give him nasty leg kicks
Should not go 3 rounds

Always rooting for Njo, should hopefully have a solid stand up fight here.

I like this fight. Not only entertaining, but Njokuani should be a solid test for Barboza.

Those leg kicks from Barboza are nasty, and I can see Njokuani stepping up to challenge but eventually being chopped down. Barboza by TKO 2nd round.

this should be a good stand up war
