Predictions: 7 of 8 Winners, 2 Perfect, 425 Points   |   Tied for 156th

Mousasi vs. Lima
Gegard Mousasi, DEC
This is going to be a tense 25 minutes and I feel like each fighter will have their moments but ultimately Mousasi will have more success and win on the cards.

Newell vs. Zane
Nick Newell, SUB, R2
Let's go Nick Newell!

Johnson vs. Eblen
Taylor Johnson, SUB, R1
Sneaky sub outta nowhere

Scoggins vs. Misech
Jared Scoggins, DEC
Misech is almost good enough to win this fight, and I wouldn't be blown away if he did. But he generally can't hang with fighters of Scoggins' caliber.

Gwerder vs. Rosta
Dalton Rosta, TKO, R2
This is the best fight I've seen opening a Bellator card in a long time, maybe ever. These guys could both be serious contenders in a few years

Bellator are not messing around with their fight cards recently. Can't see Lima getting past Mousasi though.

Mousasi vs. Lima
Douglas Lima, TKO, R4
Didn't put almost any effort into this card. So i'm hoping for ~50% Pick rate.

Corrales vs. Girtz
Brandon Girtz, TKO, R1
Dog pick.

Arteaga vs. Yanez
Desiree Yanez, TKO, R2
I think this will be a finish surprisingly.

Voelker vs. Homasi
Bobby Voelker, DEC
Surprised Sabah is the favorite. I remember both of these guys' careers in the UFC and I was way less impressed with Sabah.

Newell vs. Zane
Nick Newell, SUB, R3
RNC

Johnson vs. Eblen
Taylor Johnson, DEC
FoTN, should be some fun ground scraps.

Law vs. Ortega
Cody Law, TKO, R2
I've already said my part on this. If Law doesn't hit this softball out of the park he should consider this a loss regardless of whose hand is raised.

Scoggins vs. Misech
Jared Scoggins, DEC
Tougher fight than their records would have you believe. I can't find odds on this one yet.

Borics vs. Sánchez
Ádám Borics, TKO, R1
Biggest mismatch of the card.

Hager vs. Calton
Jake Hager, TKO, R1
Wait. Is this a catch vs collegiate wrestling match... with punches? Dope.

Gwerder vs. Rosta
Dalton Rosta, SUB, R3
Damn FoTN #2. What a strong opener. I did 0 research other than just a cursory youtube watch, and I have to pick the wrestler over the fancy striker.

Predictions: 6 of 8 Winners, 3 Perfect, 425 Points   |   Tied for 201st

Mousasi vs. Lima
Douglas Lima, DEC
You can see it how you want, but I think Douglas Lima is at the top of the heap when it comes to 170lbs...... In ALL of MMA. I know it's a bold statement, one that I argue about frequently and stand strong on my opinion. He's abslolutely in my top 3 all time faves (right beside Gaethje, Ferguson) and that mos def makes me a little bias. But I do see the danger in this matchup. Gegard, when he's been on, has been/is arguably the best Middleweight over the last decade. I'll argue that too. And one of the big keys for Gegard will be that jab. Lima has a tendency to be hittable by the jab, he sometimes forgets about head movement. But when you break it down, Lima is a ******* savage. Very, veryyy unlike his brother. And ppl keep throwing out there the size difference. Gegard has definitely fought at higher weight classes, and he's used to BIG POWER. But Douglas has fought at Middleweight before (yes, not in forever, and only a small sample size very early in his career) but he's a massive welterweight. Ugggh, they both have attributes that offset each other. One crazy stat I dug up is the amount of combined finishes between them. Geeeezus. 64 ******* finishes. 64!! The reason I bring that up, is I do believe that number stays at 64. I think Lima wins on points. I know it's not the most favorable outcome, but I think we getta treat outta this one boys. A full 25 minutes of madness and pandemonium. This is the fight of the weekend for me.

Corrales vs. Girtz
Henry Corrales, DEC
With Bellator dropping alotta contracts at the end of the year, I think it's fair to say that both of these guys are probably fighting for their jobs here. Loser gets to pack their **** and go kick rocks. Corrales has more ways to win. Girtz has to make it a ******* ugly fight and hope to tag Corrales with a big bomb.

Arteaga vs. Yanez
Desiree Yanez, DEC
Man everybody I know is severely overlooking Yanez. I can always depend on the Tap community to see what I see.

Voelker vs. Homasi
Sabah Homasi, TKO, R2
Oooooh god. Not vicious Bobby Voelker. Go back to Shamrock FC buddy. I probably jinxed it now. Watch Homasi get slept now.

Newell vs. Zane
Nick Newell, SUB, R1
Newell being tossed a bone here. I'm always impressed by this kid, cos you'd think it'd be a little difficult to ya know, wrestle, grapple, submit, fight, etc with only 1 1/2 arms. But he makes it work somehow. Zane is not really a good fighter at all, Nowhere close to the level of Newell.

Johnson vs. Eblen
Taylor Johnson, TKO, R1
Man another top flight Shamrock FC fighter. Well former I guess. Still....

Law vs. Ortega
Cody Law, SUB, R1
Windber PA's own Cody Law. I remember this kid. PIAA Champ. 2x NCAA D2 All-American, I think only once as a D2 National Champ, if I can remember right. Once is good enough. This kid has alotta potential. Keep your eye out on Cody Law

Borics vs. Sánchez
Ádám Borics, TKO, R1
Ooooooo my god... Where do they find these guys. Covid or not. I thought Newell was tossed a lay-up fight. Holy ******balls.

Gwerder vs. Rosta
Dalton Rosta, TKO, R1
Maaaan, I never realized how much Pennsylvania flavor Bellator has on their roster. I forgotta bout Dalton Rosta too. This is a fantastic matchup tho, and of two top prospects. Should be fun while it lasts.

He was signed by Strikeforce and had some wars in there, when UFC took over Strikeforce they took most of their fighters and they fought out their contracts. Bobbeh was one of them.
