I'm pretty shocked no one has even mentioned this card. It is without a doubt their best card so far this year. I'm a little disappointed the Saul Rogers fight was scrapped due to Pat Healy's hand injury and they were not able to find a replacement.

But here are the highlights for me:

Barnatt and Khalidov is a great MW matchup and will be an exciting main event.
Garnett-Tobin - Two undefeated featherweights clash.
Wilkinson-Loughnane II with Loughnane on a 3 fight KO streak, looking to even the score.
Agnaev and Nunes will throw crazy powerful fists at each other's faces.
Vakhaev could challenge Boser.
The grappling in Bagov v. Jenkins will be amazing.
Robert Whiteford always brings a good fight.
Lightweight prospects Lewis Monarch and Ashley Reece face their toughest tests to date.

I will certainly be looking for the results and replays of these fights, in particular. Looking to hear what anyone else's thoughts are.

Yeah for sure I remember when I was picking it thinking wow lot of good fights/former ufc guys.

Wow. Ask and you shall receive, I guess. Saul Rogers added back onto the card with a new opponent :) 

Very solid card top to bottom. Better than anything Bellator has run so far this year.

Yeah, awesome card. Hope they keep Kelleher on it though, want to see him continue that streak.

Just a plain crazy card. From the amount of talent, interesting matchups and just the amount of fights. I mean 25 fights? That's just insanity. Going to be fun but also exhausting.

This card is bizarre and fascinating. I'm assuming that Murad Kalamov isn't actually fighting twice but then I wouldn't put it past the crazy head of ACB.

I was only able to catch a few of the fights because I had a very busy day, but Agnaev is really the truth. He disposed of Nunes in the first like he was an unwanted napkin.

Also, I was correct about the grappling in Bagov v. Jenkins. It was a treat. Worth a watch if you've got the 10 minutes.
