BJPENN.com Fighter Picks Dominick Reyes vs. Jiri Prochazka:
Devin Clark, UFC light heavyweight: I think it will be a pretty good fight but I have to go with Dominick Reyes. I think he can drag this fight out and have success in those final three rounds and likely get a finish then.
Tristan Connelly, UFC featherweight: I will go with Prochazka. He looked good in his debut.
Cody Stamann, UFC bantamweight: Man, that is a close one. I really like Jiri Prochazka and he’s tough and has KO power. He’s not scared to get into a firefight and I think he can land something big and KO Reyes.
Joe Solecki, UFC lightweight: I think Reyes. He had the hiccup with Blachowicz but I still think he’s one of the best and will be able to piece up Prochazka.
Diego Ferreira, UFC lightweight: I go with Dominick. I think Reyes overlooked Jan and he will be a much-improved fighter here. Prochazka gets hit a lot and I think Reyes is hungry and will sharpen up his boxing and win the fight.
Dustin Jacoby, UFC light heavyweight: I like Jiri Prochazka a lot as he likes getting into these technical brawls. I think he has more power than Reyes and Reyes gets hit a lot. Jiri by KO.
Jeff Molina, UFC flyweight: It’s tough as I wonder how Reyes will look after the Blachowicz loss. I think he overlooked Jan way too much but he took the right amount of time off. Jiri is good though man and I think he lands something big early and finishes it in the first or second.
