Been really weird that Bellator hasn't booked this fight before now. But, they don't seem to value their belts all that much. December 14 is the expected date.

Primus vs. Chandler II
Michael Chandler, TKO, R3
Maaaan, I've been waiting for this rematch since the 1st fight ended. I still look at "Iron" Mike Chandler as the uncrowned champ. I honestly believe he's got Primus's number... Just HAS TO check those devastating low calf kicks. If he does that, he's gonna finish Brent Primus and get the belt back that already has his name on it.

Mir vs. Ayala
Javy Ayala, TKO, R1
Man, I truly feel like Frank Mir has no reason fighting anymore.. Atleast not in the top levels of the sport. Not exactly saying that Javy Ayala is top level, but I still think he KO's Mir here, within the first 5 mins. Ayala throws bombs. Idk. I'm not a big fan of our legends continuing to fight past their prime. Especially when they're LEGIT LEGENDS. When their names and legacies are already built and they've got nothing left to prove.

Pieper vs. Avila
Brandon Pieper, DEC
Well.... Better off flipping a coin...

Gracie Jr. vs. Bolohao
Robson Gracie Jr., SUB, R1
Hmmm..... Wonder how this will go down. I'm thinking by knockout....... I'm kidding. I wonder if there's ever been a Gracie, where his base WAS NOT Jiu-Jitsu. Also had me thinking. This has to be like the 97th Gracie to compete in MMA. I wonder what the combined record of All Gracie's ever is. Coz I know that there was a few Gracies, with **** records..

McKee Jr. vs. Crawford
AJ McKee Jr., TKO, R2
Daniel Crawford is a step down in competition for McKee after throwing down with John Teixeira last time out. I understand it's not the easiest for Bellator to find quality opponents on short notice (Hell, even w/o it being short notice), but McKee shoulda just waited to get a quality opponent that'll actually get him 1 step closer to Pitbull's belt. Either that, or he has to make a HUGE STATEMENT by absolutely obliterating Crawford... Either way, he's prolly 1 Goood win away from being Pitbull's next opponent. And that fight WILL BE good.

Crazy that McKee is 12-0 in Bellator and isn’t getting more of a challenge. Good card though! Chandler’s chance to get the strap back, Mir’s return fight, and a Gracie making his MMA debut is always fun to watch.

Campos vs. Sicilia
Derek Campos, DEC
This SHOULD BE an entertaining fight. Derek Campos has a fan friendly style and Sicilia is just flat tough.. Should be goood TV..

Claxton vs. Meyer
Ty-wan Claxton, TKO, R2
is Kaeo Meyer's 1st name really pronounced "K-O" ?? I mean that's a pretty sweeeet name.. But its unfortunately it's HIGHLY LIKELY Kaeo, gets KO'd here.

Chandler should bring balance back to the universe by smashing Primus (unless the MMA gods decide to **** him again.)  

Frank Mir should smash a journeyman (although that journeyman did beat Sergei not that long ago, so you never know.)

Campos vs Sicilia will probably be fun for as long as it lasts.

There's a new Gracie on the prelims, which my oldschool ass is still intrigued by (for some reason.) It should be a decent card.

Yeah, with FIghtpass, possibly ESPN+ and that along with other TV stuff it comes to a point something might have to go. They definitely got my attention with everything they've added to DAZN.
