Predictions: 12 of 18 Winners, 6 Perfect, 920 Points   |   Tied for 30th with 1 other

Sonnen vs. Machida
Lyoto Machida, TKO, R2
Machidas gonna circle for a round throw a couple leg kicks faint a lot then in the 2nd he'll head kick Chael either out or enough for Chael to turtle up and be finished with a few punches

MacDonald vs. Gracie
Neiman Gracie, SUB, R3
People focused on what Rory said in his post fight speech so much that the main issue was forgotten. Rory couldn't beat Jon Fitch! I thought he lost, not a good sign. I think it pretty clear that he's on the downside. Of course the Lawler fight done lasting damage but also Condit smashed his face in nearly 10 yrs ago, more recently the Lima fight was a war, his nose is wrecked Mousasi crushed him and of course now there's Jesus! I like Rory but I can't pick him anymore. If Fitch can beat you then a young hungry super dangerous Gracie can beat you

Caldwell vs. Horiguchi II
Kyoji Horiguchi, TKO, R2
IMO Horiguchi is the best fighter P4P outside the UFC. I hope he wins the title and stays to defend with Bellatlr a few times

Bandejas vs. Mix
Patrick Mix, SUB, R2
Patrick Mix is 1 to watch. He's gonna be challenging for the Bellator Bantamweight title by this time next year

Kimbel vs. Ruiz
Sebastian Ruiz, SUB, R3
Kimbel is the definition of a hype job!

MacDonald vs. Gracie
Neiman Gracie, SUB, R2
Honestly kinda surprised more ppl aren't taking Gracie here. Look, in my opinion, Rory is on his way out the door (he's got Jesus to blame for taking the "killer" outta him, dnt downvote me, HE SAID IT) And He hasn't looked the same since BEFORE the Lawler fight. IMO, He lost that war with Lima in his Bellator debut, Mousasi crushed him, Annnd he didn't win the Fitch fight either (IMO) Annnd I think Gracie is just a badd matchup for THIS CURRENT Rory Macdonald. I give him 2 rounds, annnd then the new temporary king will be crowned (It's destiny for Lima to get the strap back)

Sonnen vs. Machida
Lyoto Machida, TKO, R2
Goood ******* god Chael, just quit the schtick now. You got yourself that kushy job with ESPN to fall back on. And someone will always tune in to listen to the hilarious **** you say, but dnt torture yourself for embarrassing losses. Just hang it up dude. The game has left you in the dust.

Danis vs. Humphrey
Dillon Danis, SUB, R1
I wish Dillon Danis would be murdered here, but to be smart, I gotta take him here.

Caldwell vs. Horiguchi II
Darrion Caldwell, DEC
Look I like Horiguchi, there's just something about this loss, I expect Caldwell to fix ****. On paper, Which I know better not to trust. Caldwell is 6" taller and has an 8" reach advantage. You'd think he'd use it to his advantage....... you'd think

Dantas vs. Archuleta
Juan Archuleta, DEC
Remember what happened last time Dudu Dántas faced a tough, gritty wrestler....... He got mauled and lost his belt. Expect more of the same here.

Bandejas vs. Mix
Patrick Mix, DEC

Gozali vs. Wurlitzer

holy ****..... I know 45th fight tends to mean you're highly experienced. But with 20+ wins, comes 20+ losses. Sooo is it fair to say he's experienced at losing!?

Hardy vs. Turner
Heather Hardy, DEC
I keep forgetting Heather Hardy is frickin 37. Yesss, She's got plenty of combat experience, but boxing experience doesn't equate to MMA experience. Still should getta decision win here.

Pico vs. Borics
Aaron Pico, TKO, R2
******* finally they match this kid up with a legit threat to kill his win streak. Adam Boriçs is Noooo ******* joke, I just reallyyyy dnt know which way to go with this one. I'm expecting a KO, within 2 Rounds, but of who......... yeeaaaa Idk.

Hawes vs. Wilcox
Phil Hawes, DEC
Is Phil Hawes really only 4–2???

Gracie Jr. vs. Vera
Robson Gracie Jr., SUB, R1
I honestly can't remember the last time, 2 Gracie's fought on the same card... Anyone know when that happened last?

@NokSuKow  I don't think people are overrating Gracie so much as I think people don't know what to make of Rory fight against Fitch and the weird post fight comments about not being able to pull the trigger because of Jesus! When you can't beat 40yr old Fitch that's not a good look. As for the Lima fight yes Rory won, 3 rounds for me, but Lima sent him to the hospital. This is the other issue with Rory, damage, he has taken a lot over his career and maybe he's reached that tipping point where his body can't take anymore? 
We'll find out Friday night

@Mikey ... Great minds think alike brother. You picked all that **** ABOUT Rory right outta my head.. Except for the Lima fight. I'm not 100% saying Lima won unanimously. I'd agree with it being real close, annnd I'm ok with the fact that Rory DID WIN THE FIGHT, but I still think he got beat.... But that's just my opinion. And everyone's entitled to theirs

Cheers Brad. Yip, even though Rory beat Lima on the scorecard Lima beat him up and sent him to the hospital! He's taken a LOT of damage and I'm not sure he can take much more? Gracie isn't going to do much damage but neither did Fitch and Rory struggled and although he doesn't do much damage with strikes Gracie finishes with elite BJJ.

@brandonk  I'm not so sure about Pico winning. I rate Borics pretty highly, he's a well rounded finisher and he seemed to take another leap after moving to the US and joining Henri Hooft.  Obviously Pico is super talented himself but he's chinny and I think Borics has the tools to crack that chin!  Great fight between 2 top prospects where the winner should go on to challenge for the title soon after

I agree.... Boriçs is Noooo slouch by any means. I honestly think he's gonna be Pico's toughest test to date. I've been waiting for Bellator to give him a tough fight. I wanna see him put thru the ******* ringer, and claw his way back for the win. We haven't gotten to see that yet, annnd I think Boriçs is the kid to do it, forreal

Henry Corrales was pretty tough!
I thought Bellator would give Pico an easier opponent to get him back on track after a pretty brutal KO loss. Corrales switched him off! If he suffers another KO/TKO finish, which Borics is extremely capable of, then the hype is over. Pressures on for Pico

Oooooh yea. Corrales disconnected him from any form of reality. I guess i shoulda worded what I said differently. I meant I wanna see him work thru adversity, and comeback for a hard fought win. Not that I want him to have a tough fight and lose because of it,
