Prediction Comments

Bader vs. Emelianenko II
Fedor Emelianenko, TKO, R1
I understand this is a foolish pick and is highly unlikely but please knock him out Fedor. That would warm my soul

Eblen vs. Tokov
Johnny Eblen, DEC
Both guys are really skilled obviously. But I’m gonna go with the guy who 50-45d Gegard, old or not dominating Mousassi is incredibly impressive

Homasi vs. Ward
Sabah Homasi, TKO, R1
This is a fun fight if I’ve ever seen one

Mowry vs. Isaev
Ali Isaev, TKO, R2
Isaev is a beast when he’s in the cage. I hope he makes it happen here

Gonzalez vs. Rohskopf
Chris Gonzalez, DEC
Close fight here

Caldwell vs. Mikhailov
Nikita Mikhailov, DEC
Caldwell hasn’t looked good for a while
