Predictions: 3 of 3 Winners, 1 Perfect, 215 Points   |   Tied for 530th

The fighters are weighed in and we're set for a really fun-looking Bellator card on Saturday night. 

Prelims kick off on Spike.com at 630pm ET followed by a five-bout main card on Spike TV at 9pm. 

Seeing as there are 18 fights scheduled (some good prelims for a Bellator show, BTW,) I'm guessing we'll have in the neighborhood of 7-8 postlims. 

Enjoy!

I'm fine with more draws.  Way too many razor close split decisions that rob fighters of pay/rankings in their prime.

Kevin Casey definitely belongs in Bellator, if that. His cardio is absolutely atrocious.

According to John Morgan, Bollinger/Corrales is going on even though the stream has switched to showing promos.

Also, Schneider just posted she's now fighting the first postlim.

******* Bellator.

So frustrating. The last fight ended at around the :33 min mark - plenty of time to squeeze in one more fight.

Forsure. Corrales won by 3rd round TKO, would've been great to see!

shame

Heny ko'd bollinger just past 4:28 in the 3rd round. Sounded like a banger.

Anderson

Kinda feels like a step down for Anderson. He beat pitbull twice and KO'd Girtz but this is sure to be a great fight. Both guys ranked in Bellator solid win streaks. Entertaining fighters. Anderson should be clear favorite but Dangerous fight for him.
