M. Johnson Alan Patrick Prediction

Both rivals are going through a bad period in their careers. And in the confrontation between two motivated fighters, you need to pay attention to their weaknesses.

Therefore, despite Patrick's love of working at a distance, he has excellent options to go to the reception against the American.
