Ordinarily, I would give Antonio Walker the edge due to fighting experience and training time, but after watching some footage I think the younger and much more eager Xavier Lundy may be doing all the right things to pull out a victory at Fight For It XIII.
Walker is 0-3 in MMA, with all defeats coming from younger and much more enthusiastic fighters. Meanwhile, Lundy is active on the striking scene in North Carolina and has invested a considerable amount of time in developing his skills. Training with Southern Scrap Nation, Triumph Fight Academy and Charlotte Jiu-Jitsu has given Lundy the confidence to say that nothing bothers him about his opponent and he will put on a show for the fans.
I see Lundy winning by stoppage in the third round.
