Khaos Williams vs. Carlston Harris expert pick, prediction

The co-main event in Las Vegas features a welterweight showdown between Williams and Harris.

Despite not being entirely sure why this is a co-main event, this bout should be exciting for as long as it lasts.

Williams, who is no stranger to the knockout, is a devastating counter-puncher who likes to blitz in combination. But given the submission prowess of Harris, I’ll be curious to see how Williams’ takedown defense holds up.

Although an early Williams knockout wouldn’t shock me, the American’s propensity to either clinch or follow fighters to the floor makes it hard for me to pick him here.

Add in the fact that this fight will be taking place in the smaller octagon of the UFC Apex, and I’ll side with the superior grappler to achieve his win conditions.

The pick is Harris by first-round submission.
