I can't decide.
At first I thought Alvarado then after some consideration I thought Rios
Now I'm just stuck in the middle again...
After the weigh in i'll probaly be hyped for Alvarado...
I would then say by round 3 i'd know who is going to win.. but in a fight like this.. it's not over till it's over.
