Lerone Murphy vs. Gabriel Santos Prediction

Lerone Murphy is a Kung Fu Fighter, nothing quite foreign to the British regional circuit but effective in that regard nevertheless. Bolstering an 11-0 record, Murphy looks to ride his career-long momentum into the fray against one Gabriel Santos. Fighting out Curitiba Parana Brazil, Mr. Santos is making his short-notice debut with the promotion following Nathaniel Woods' unforeseen departure at the hands of injury last month.

Being an undefeated fighter at 10-0, Gabriel has that particular aura of invincibility few fighters possess heading into this weekend's festivities, so it will be a battle of wills and prestige when he goes toe to toe with the aforementioned Murphy.

While scrappy, the man who goes by Santos rarely puts anything together with great finesse or inherent skill when juxtaposed to the highest-level competitors of the UFC, so that is why I am picking and betting that Lerone Murphy gets it done. The fact of the matter is even without the short notice variable. Murphy has Santos beat in just about every circumstance apart from maybe output and general volume.

If Murphy can just let his hands go early and often, he should have no trouble commanding the respect of Santos if not finishing the fight entirely. Expect Lerone Murphy to lose the first round of the scheduled three, where he will then mount a vivacious onslaught that will construe into a unanimous decision victory or third-round TKO finish.
