Like this fight. Bellator is going away from the wwf antics of dada vs kimbo and ken vs royce while ufc is plowing headfirst into it.

Prediction: correct Bader   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 1  

Mitrione has a punchers chance, but I expect Bader to make very easy work out of Meathead.

Prediction: correct Bader   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 2  

Conventional wisdom said that Mitrione would have the striking advantage, and then Bader scored a 15 second knockout. It's going to be an interesting fight, but I honestly think Bader could submit or KO Meathead.

Prediction: correct Bader   wrong Submission   wrong Round 2  

Bader is better than Mitrione at everything. The only thing Mitrione has in his favor is his size and athleticism.

Prediction: correct Bader   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 3  

Basically what Bigj said with the exception that I think Bader is actually better conditioned than Mitrione at this stage of their respective careers.

I've though that Bader will win this thing since the jump.
