Terrance McKinney, UFC lightweight: Moreno, he won the first time and I think he wins by decision but it will be close.
Alex Morono, UFC welterweight: I’m going with Brandon Moreno, he won the first fight and has a chin and can strike with Kara-France and also grapple him.
Jonathan Pearce, UFC featherweight: Moreno, probably by decision but it will be a close fight.
Adrian Yanez, UFC bantamweight: I’m a big fan of Moreno and I can’t pick again my mom’s favorite fighter, so Moreno.
Charles Rosa, UFC featherweight: Brandon Moreno. He has the heart of the champion and will bounce back in a big way.
Billy Quarantillo, UFC featherweight: I think Brandon Moreno, he’s just overall a little bit sharper and I think he wins that fight.
