Brad Riddell vs Renato Moicano Prediction

Sure the primary shining stars of the gym could hit with relative ease, as both Israel Adesanya and Carlos Ulberg seem to be taking on stylistically favorable matchups as opposed to their most recent stretch of opponents. New Zealand's best and brightest surely have nothing to worry about coming into the fray, it is just the latter half of the kiwi scrap pack consisting of Dan Hooker and Brad Riddell being the primary causes for concern due to some debilitating holes in their game as of late. While a case can be made that Dan "The Hangman" Hooker has been fighting an absolute murderers row of championship hopefuls and holders, the same cannot be said about "Quake" Brad Riddell, who now takes on Renato Moicano.

The fact of the matter is that this gnome from The Land of the Long White Cloud has been absolutely battered from pillar to post by not nearly the strongest strength of schedule as his teammates, finally getting chin-checked decimated by Fizev and then buried altogether when up against Jalin Turner in under a minute to add insult to injury. When it comes down to brass tax Moicano is the bigger, longer, and arguably more durable fighter at this point in their careers. Sure, some could argue that the vivisection he took against RDA might constitute his chin turning to dust, but at the end of the day, Renato survived to the finale of the five-round war, going so far as to even winning the last round in a valiant effort of becoming the spiritual BMF.
