Nurmagomedov vs. Henderson
Usman Nurmagomedov, DEC
Benson looked absolutely great last time against tough Irish dog Peter Queally, and I thinl he will give a competitive fight to Usman..

Gouvea vs. Tucker
Wladmir Gouvea, TKO, R1
*** Gouvea is taking a selfie in a gym, he couldn't even ask a friend to take the pic for him ? Sad look...

Nurmagomedov vs. Henderson
Usman Nurmagomedov, DEC
Would be crazy if benson pulled this off but Usman is the truth

Musayev vs. Shabliy
Tofiq Musayev, TKO, R3
Amazing high kevel fight; this is gonna be violent. I don’t really know who to pick so I’ll let my bias pick for me

Moldavsky vs. Vassell
Valentin Moldavsky, DEC
Not sure why this is being rebooked but good fight. Should likely end the same way it did the first time; maybe a finish

Hill vs. Bell
Josh Hill, DEC
Hill has slowed down a lot but should take this. Bell isn’t that good

Gouvea vs. Tucker
Wladmir Gouvea, TKO, R1
Same with this gouvea dude. Don’t get what they see in him

Haig vs. Wamsley
Theo Haig, SUB, R1
Not sure why they want to promote haig but free win

Barzola vs. Perez
Enrique Barzola, DEC
Barzola is very underrated. He should easily beat perez

Gallagher vs. Higo
Leandro Higo, SUB, R2
Still not totally sold on dollar store mcgregor. The mix fight is aging well (despite the fight being awful) but gallagher has still shown to crumple every time he faces a step up. Losing Krause as a coach is probably not good for him either. Give me the proven, experienced vet

Taylor-Melendez vs. Ellen
Keri Taylor-Melendez, DEC
Hard to be confident in Melendez given age and layoff, but never been impressed with Ella

Anderson vs. Luna
Rogelio Luna, TKO, R2
Luna qiuetly had one of the best fights of 2022 last year. He looks unassuming but can push a crazy pace and never slows down. He’s fighting a way more experienced opponent with a good bjj background, but I wouldn’t count him totally out in this fight

Stewart vs. Georgiades
Dupree Stewart, SUB, R2
No idea who this is but seems like Bellator wants him to win

Nurmagomedov vs. Henderson
Usman Nurmagomedov, DEC
Amazing fight! Henderson looks like he has more fire lately, and if he brings it I think it will be an exciting one. But Usman is so well rounded and young, I think he gets the decision.

Musayev vs. Shabliy
Alexander Shabliy, DEC
Tough one, another great fight. Shabliy keeps some pretty good wrestling in his back pocket, he might rely on that.

Hill vs. Bell
Josh Hill, TKO, R3
I think Hill keeps it on the feet and outclasses Bell. He caught Scoggins who had a kinda rangy karate style, so I think he'll be prepared.

Gouvea vs. Tucker
Wladmir Gouvea, TKO, R1
Gouvea looked super unpolished in his last win, so for whatever reason they want to push him, I'm assuming they'll give him easy opponents for a while.

Barzola vs. Perez
Enrique Barzola, SUB, R3
This should be a fast-paced one. I see Barzola keeping the pressure on and finishing late.

Gallagher vs. Higo
James Gallagher, SUB, R3
Not sure about this one, both guys still have questions to me in different ways.

Anderson vs. Luna
Rogelio Luna, TKO, R2
I hope Luna has decent takedown defense. Laird is good on the ground but still untested, and Luna showed that he has great cardio and a heck of a chin. Maybe Luna will humble Anderson.
