Prediction Comments

Kharitonov vs. Vassell
Sergei Kharitonov, TKO, R2
Although Sergei Kharitonov is the older fighter, by 2½ years. And he's even had 10 more fights than Linton Vassell, but I still believe that Vassell is the slightly older in matter of "dog years". All the wars (vs. clearly better opposition). All the badd losses (vs. better opposition) and the losses recently vs. Bader & maybe Phil Davis' best career KO were especially bad). And All the injuries. Time spent away from the cage. It's all affected Vassell negatively. His ONLY saving grace he has here.... Is that 8½" reach advantage he's working with vs. Kharitonov. Even still. Tough pickings for me. I've been severely let down picking Kharitonov before. Like when he was almost instantly dispatched by Javy Ayala. But I believe Vassell is on the verge of being a shot fighter.

Huerta vs. Outlaw
Sidney Outlaw, SUB, R2
Oh boy. We wanna talk "shot fighters", here's one to add to the list. Roger Huerta was at one point 20-1-1. But that was 2007. Since then, he lost his next fight to Kenny Florian annnd then he wasn't good anymore. Like Florian flipped his savage switch to "off". Since that loss... He's gone 4-10. And hasn't even looked like half the man he used to be recently, even in winning form. I see Outlaw just smashing right thru Huerta. Honestly. And it's nice to see Outlaw back in the big leagues and back in Bellator.

Rubin vs. Kavanagh
Olga Rubin, DEC
Kavanagh's striking is absolutely scary. Stuff of real nightmares. And I'm not being complimentary. Striking is god awfully horrendous. Like a spazz with down syndrome, flailing about. And knowing she's from SBG Ireland. Haaaa. C'mon. She's like Bellator's version of Tonya Evinger (ImperatorFishrat's all-time favorite fighter). Scary hag, that's tough as pain turds and hard to put away.

Vanderford vs. Bozinyan
Austin Vanderford, SUB, R3
Finally. Vanderford getting another stepup. I wanna see if 1) can he continue strangling and finishing guys and if not, then 2) I wanna see how he looks over a solid 15 mins, vs. tougher guys. Hopefully questions answered.

Gozali vs. Pronin
Haim Gozali, SUB, R1
Ok. Let's all think about this for a moment. Does it not sound ridiculous when you see that a man born in 1973, is still competing in combat sports, in a big promotion. Holy ****balls man. Holy ******balls man. 47½ years old. Reminds me of an even older Nigel Benn vs. Sakio Bika we got coming up veryyyy soon as well. These old ************s man. Bellator isn't giving him a gimme like the last few, but can't imagine them doing him extremely dirty and setting up the guy on the poster to lose, right??? 🤔

Fedin vs. Keresh
Adam Keresh, TKO, R1
My god that guy is a flaming garbage can fire. ****** stanky. The king of padded records in Fedin. #24 Light-Heavyweight in Russia. Haaaa

Wurlitzer vs. Haiyadre
Gustavo Wurlitzer, SUB, R1
I do not feel comfy taking the guy who finished most his wins by submission...... But literally lost all but 4 losses, by way of submission. Oh those other 4 losses, he was KO'd
