Prediction Comments

Cooper III vs. Magomedkerimov
Ray Cooper III, TKO, R1
Maaaan... Ray Cooper III could very well be a nominee for breakthrough fighter of the year, coz this kid surprised me.. sooo he had to surprise some others as well. Other than the middleweight fight that kicks off the night, this is the fight I've got my eye on. It should be a great fight. Cooper is a ****** tank annnnd he's won last 14/16. and Magomedkerimov has won his last 15/17.

Copeland vs. Lins
Philipe Lins, TKO, R2
If you coulda picked two guys who were least likely to be in the finals at the end of the year, these two would prolly be your front runners... Just shows how unpredictable Heavyweight fights are. In a class where everyone has KO power from short range. So let's see.... Copeland has a little bit more experience (8 more fights), whereas Lins, you could argue faced better competition with his time in Bellator. I think Copeland can prolly take more of a beating, but Lins might have more tools. and Lins comes from a top notch camp. Idk. it ends by someone, by KO, by R2...

Magalhães vs. O'Connell
Vinny Magalhães, SUB, R1
Maaaan... Vinny Magalhães has looked like he's finally hit his MMA prime, coz he's looked like a world beater this year. Yeeaaaa maybe he got some favorable matchups because he's Ray Sefo's boy... but he's looked amazing. We all know O'Connell's Gameplan is always to be a human punching bag for Round 1, in hopes you punch or tire out. And then R2 is ****-king nuts. Like Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Robots. All offense. Only Defense is using your dome piece to absorb shots, and hoping to take out your opponent before he takes you out. But i don't see that plan working here. Coz Vinny's not gonna punch him. He's gonna strangle him.

Harrison vs. Charneski
Kayla Harrison, SUB, R1
I really think Kayla is a huge talent, major prospect with a huge upside in MMA.. She's surrounded herself with all the right ppl, great camp, and she's prolly better than Ronda Rousey 2 fights into MMA. (And prolly in judo tooo). So she's on the right path. I see another easy win here for her.. Another Armbar possibly??

Siler vs. Palmer II
Lance Palmer, DEC
Siler is hot and cold to me.. I'm reallyyyy shocked he's got that #1 seeding. But I just see NOOO WAY this is a close fight. I think Lance Palmer is kinda really boring to watch, but he's effective at what he does. He Cooper his opponents offense, grinds out rounds, and just makes you look bad. he's really good at that.. But I just wish he worked on being more entertaining..

Taylor vs. Magomedov
Louis Taylor, DEC
I think this is the best final of the card. Louis Taylor is severely underrated. And Abus is a legit stud... There's not a whole lot that I need to say about this fight except for just make sure you watch it!
