Gabriel Varga, DEC
What are people seeing in Brandon Phillips here? I don't get it. Varga's vulnerable to wrestling, but unless I'm missing something, Phillips doesn't seem to have much of that in his arsenal.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 7 of 10 Winners, 3 Perfect, 480 Points   |   Tied for 426th

Pitbull vs. Carvalho
Patricio Pitbull, TKO, R2
I do like Carvalho, and I do believe he'll be a monster in a couple years, gotta remember, the kid just turned 25. However, right now, Pitbull is just on another level. I still sometimes feel like Patricio doesn't get all the credit that he rightfully deserves. I consider Patricio an Elite, Top Level Featherweight. Who still has lots of life in those batteries. I'd like to see Pitbull get the finish here, I think there's a good opportunity for that to happen here. I think there's a good chance in EVERY Pitbull fight, but he's surprisingly only finished 1 Fight, since 2017.

Amosov vs. Storley
Yaroslav Amosov, DEC
I just think Amosov is the better, more rounded fighter. If Storley doesn't have his wrestling to fall back on, what's he got? Maybe heart, but that's not gonna win you a fight on it's own.

Weichel vs. Sanchez II
Daniel Weichel, DEC
I honestly don't see much changing from the way the first showdown went. Weichel by un-eventful decision.

Pico vs. de Jesus
Aaron Pico, TKO, R2
Canonsburg Pa... Oh boy. 724 is in the house. For a short time.

Brennan vs. Salas
Lucas Brennan, SUB, R2
Haaaa. When I glanced at Andrew Salas' picture, I coulda swore that it was "Violent Bob Ross"

Pitbull vs. Carvalho
Patricio Pitbull, SUB, R2
Great matchup, I love tournaments!

Amosov vs. Storley
Yaroslav Amosov, DEC
Amosov beat 3 wrestlers in a row, bout to make it 4

Weichel vs. Sanchez II
Emmanuel Sanchez, DEC
I feel like Weichel can definitely win this, I don't feel confident in this pick at all. Siding with youth and a reach advantage and hoping for the best.

Pico vs. de Jesus
Aaron Pico, SUB, R1
These odds are for psychopaths

Taylor-Melendez vs. King
Keri Taylor-Melendez, DEC
King sprung a massive upset in her last fight, and I don't think it happens twice in a row. Watch me be hilariously wrong

Powell vs. Muro
Devin Powell, TKO, R2
I thought Muro lost to Newell in his last fight

Lugo vs. Sootho
Jornel Lugo, DEC
big step up for Sootho

Brennan vs. Salas
Lucas Brennan, SUB, R1
Homeless Luis Pena takes his first submission loss today

Faraldo vs. Casey

God, I like Big John. He's a wealth of knowledge on MMA, hell he's even decent to listen to on the podcast with Josh Thomson...... But listening to him and Goldie is absolutely ******* dreadful. Absolutely atrocious. I know I'm not the only one who mutes it, or plays music at the same time to cover the crap. Wish Bellator could make amends with, and bring back both Jimmie Smith and Sean Wheelock. Those were the glory days of good bellator announcing.

Quirky New Predictions

Predictions: 8 of 10 Winners, 4 Perfect, 500 Points   |   Tied for 378th

Gracie vs. Gudde
I take Khonry Gracie at -640. He has a venomous axe kick. Gracie will likely employ the dissentient.

Brennan vs. Salas
I love Lucas Brennan at -500. He has a ruthless quivering palm death touch. Brennan shall heal the bandit. Easy!

Taylor-Melendez vs. King
I elect Keri Taylor-Melendez at -500. She has a wretched armpit slam and a lame hammerfist. Taylor-Melendez will likely seize the production.

Lugo vs. Sootho
I crave Jornel Lugo at -335. He has a qualified elevator hook sweep. Lugo won't nationalize the ring announcer.

Powell vs. Muro
I finger Devin Powell at -280. He has a twisted tsuri-dashi. Powell is gonna capture the Octagon.

Faraldo vs. Casey
I embrace Roman Faraldo at -285. He has a wretched guillotine. Faraldo will tweak the corner man.

Amosov vs. Storley
I tap Yaroslav Amosov at -190. He has a yucky randleplex. Amosov must unsettle the rival.

Pico vs. de Jesus
I have got Aaron Pico at -860. He has a qualified spinning back elbow. Pico is about to neutralize the dark horse.

Weichel vs. Sanchez II
I take Emmanuel Sanchez at -255. He has a glamorous crotch-hold and a tremendous scissors sweep. Sanchez shall zonk the unthinkable.

Pitbull vs. Carvalho
I elect Patricio Pitbull at -760. He has a macabre takedown. Pitbull must implement the cake.

Bellator commentary is the worst. Goldie sounds like he is on meth most of the time. They usually start rambling on about nonsense. Super bias towards whatever fighter the promotion wants to win. Very little insight is usually added. Its the worst. Jimmy smith was great. They brought in these clowns for no reason
