Was going to bet on Riddle but at those odds, there's really no point.

Funny to think this guy has 6 fights in the UFC and he's only been on the main card once, and that was only because he was in TUF. They're making this guy work HARD to get to in spotlight.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

maybe if people did some research and saw that Pierson is actually very experienced (more so than Riddle) they would put more money on him.
