Emelianenko vs. Bader

Annnd we've come to the final for the belt. It's pretty cool tho, coz let's be honest... Before the whole Grand Prix started, who the hell thought they'd ever see Fedor vs Ryan Bader?! It's pretty sweet. But let's be honest, yesss. Fedor still has some power. But I gotta think the storyline is more about Bader being a champ-champ coz it's all the rage these days, than it is about Fedor becoming a Heavyweight Champ again. Which I can't lie, it'd be sweeeet to see Fedor as Champ once more..

Juan Archuleta is prolly top 10 of the cleanest, technical tactician's when it comes to a seamless complete MMA game. some might say he's boring, but he's very dominant at what he does. How else did he win 16 straight?

Now here's a debut I'm sure the hardcore fans been waiting for.. Your casual fans as they're called I guess, probably have Nooo idea who AJ Agazarm is. But I expect great things. If he can pick up striking like he picked up Wrestling, then BJJ..... He'll be an absolute destroyer of senses. (I love some Shadows Fall)

Emelianenko vs. Bader
Ryan Bader, TKO, R2
Isn't it insane to imagine that Fedor made it all the way here? And yet, him beating both Frank and Chael sort of makes sense too. He's Fedor, he might not have "it", but he still has some of "it," and even the washed GOAT was the GOAT at some point. I just happen to believe that Bader has the better chance of finding his chin (like Frank did) and capitalizing on it much better. Bader, even for being a LHW, fits pretty well into this tournament. I'm betting he becomes the Bellator double champ .

Bandejas vs. Archuleta
Ricky Bandejas
Ricky is an NJ guy, and although I'm not always ride-or-die for NJ, I am in his case.

Bader vs Fedor

Bader TKO R2.


Bader should have the championship in the bag really. I pciked him at the jump and I haven't changed my opinion since then. Fedor is Fedor but it's pretty amazing that he's made it this far. However, if he does win that may be the last MMA fight I ever see, because my heart will explode with pure joy. I don't think I've ever rooted for anyone so hard. Maybe dreams can come true...

How many more fake wrestlers do we hafta witness doing this???? Is it gonna be another CM PUNK, another body to slaughter? Or a Brock Lesnar? Someone massive annnd boring to watch, but could actually win some fights? Honestly, I enjoy watching your local bar room brawl for entertainment, sooo I'll always watch 2 ppl punch each other in the face, regardless of a cage or judges.

@Hyrm ... Does he really? I tried finding any info on him other than the fake scripted wrestling **** and couldn't find ****. I mean honestly, i think one would HAVE TO TRY, to fail as miserably as CM PUNK did. (I've got nothing against Phil Brooks. He just went about it the complete wrong way. He shoulda started at the bottom, just like 90% of the other fighters do, in the amateurs, then regionals. Shoulda started against other guys with same MMA experience. He just went about it wrong, and literally took the **** end of the stick.

He was an NCAA division I all-american in 2006 and set a record for pins at the University of Oklahoma.  That and the fact that heavyweight is a relatively weak weight class ensure he'll most likely fare better than CM Punk.  He couldn't do worse.  He's 36, but with his wrestling background he has some potential.  Look what Lesnar achieved with sub-par striking.  And Hager claims he's already a pretty good striker.  We shall see.

I want a good fight, i wish them both the best of luck, but im calling fedor landing a clean punch and either putting bader down with strikes or grabbing a submission while hes stunned.

@Outomatti I think that's exactly what happens if he wins 
With a slight chance he defends it once. Probably against Kongo.
And I know there's no point but imagine Fedor vs Dc for the G.O.A.T

@FreeMoney... Just wanted to pick your brain.. How do you visualize Fedor KO'ing Bader in R1? You think Bader rushes in thinking he'll just wrestle. Wrestle. Wrestle and Fedor Clips him, with an uppercut or you think Fedor waits for a counter shot to open up? I honestly think Bader has more of a chance to win this than Fedor does. If it were up to me, I'd like to see Fedor win, just for old times sake, by a brutal KO. Or Armbar. Fedor has gnarly Armbar's

In reality Fedor has about a 25% chance of beating Bader. He will have to catch him with a huge shot in the first round  or very early in the second and finish it by strikes. He will not sub Bader.

I agree 1000% with you @Fish... But you might even be a little tooo nice at 25% chance of Fedor Winning.. Just being honest. If I can blow your minds a bit with my stoner logic... Bader has more of a chance losing, than Fedor has winning.
