The wrestler training at Team Alpha Male has the edge, but I love taking me a big, juicy dog! Also, I really enjoy watching Njokuani fight, and I hope his TDD has improved to the point where he can at least make this competitive. 23k on Njo.

Round 2 - Fighting it out on the feet early and Njokuani is comfortable here and Castillo looking a bit gassed. Njokuani crushing Castillo to the body with knees and a huge elbow on the way out. Big right hand buckles the knees of Castillo and now a big knee. Castillo with a takedown with 90 seconds left.

Round 3 - Both men throwing jabs. Right hand by Anthony gets in. Castillo shoots, Anthony avoids and lands a knee to the body. Castillo pushing him into the cage and gets a big takedown. Njokuani goes for a leglock and uses it to get up. Leg kick by Anthony. Front kick just misses for Njokuani and then Castillo takes him down.

I'd score it for Njokuani for actually doing damage and not just riding for takedowns, making it 29-28 Njokuani. But Castillo is going to win this 30-27, I'm sure.
