Overall, a bad card for me as my Bellator picks are usually better than this but at least Fedor won!

So happy to see Fedor get that win! I feared it would be a mismatch and he'd get ****** up but I thankfully was proven wrong!

Even if I lost money on it, I'm just really happy to see Fedor pick up a win.

**** Scott Coker. Hopefully Fedor stays retired.

I for one, haven't been this pleased about a wrong pick for as long as I can remember. The old man still has speed and power in his hands, oddsmakers be damned.
