Jackson doesn’t look like he has the size advantage he normally has in fights.

Predictions: 10 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 640 Points   |   Tied for 457th

Pitbull vs. Sanchez II
Patricio Pitbull, TKO, R4
It will be close at the start of the fight but Pitbull will take control as the fight wears on and will find a late finish

Gracie vs. Jackson
Neiman Gracie, SUB, R2
Gracie has a big reputation to live up to given his name but I'm sure he'll put in a clinical performance here

Fortune vs. May
Tyrell Fortune, TKO, R1
This fight is a complete mismatch. Fortune to win by early KO

Nurmagomedov vs. Hamel
Usman Nurmagomedov, TKO, R1
Another mismatch

Watanabe vs. Lara
Kana Watanabe, DEC
Watanabe will use her experience to control this fight. It won't be spectacular but it will be effective

Magomedov vs. Hamilton
Magomed Magomedov, SUB, R1
The only question here is what submission Magomedov will win by? My guess is a Guillotine Choke as 4 of his wins have come by that method

Nallo vs. Seixas
Mandel Nallo, DEC
Nallo certainly has the power to KO Seixas but it's not a given so I'll a decision here

Aguiar vs. Murtazaliev
Fabio Aguiar, TKO, R2
It's close but one of them will win by KO! FOTN

Huerta vs. Gonzalez
Chris Gonzalez, DEC
Gonzalez will extend Huerta's losing streak to 4 in a row

Azevedo vs. Wilson
Jose Augusto Azevedo, TKO, R3
Azevedo is very a well rounded fighter and is a bad stylistic match up for Wilson

Faraldo vs. Gudde
Roman Faraldo, TKO, R1
Bellator sure are pulling out all the stops to make sure we see some early finishes on this card

Newman vs. Busick
Jordan Newman, DEC
Newman is still too green to finish someone like Newman but he should get the W here

Amazing New Predictions

Predictions: 9 of 10 Winners, 2 Perfect, 500 Points   |   Tied for 895th

Fortune vs. May
I finger Tyrell Fortune at -750. He has an accurate palm block. Fortune shall maintain the dissentient.

Newman vs. Busick
I am all about Jordan Newman at -335. He has a quixotic tai otoshi and a killer crucifix. Newman could blast the adversary.

Aguiar vs. Murtazaliev
I am all over Khalid Murtazaliev at -325. He has a tasty overhead chop. Murtazaliev could ruin the Octagon.

Magomedov vs. Hamilton
I lean towards Magomed Magomedov at -1610. He has a brash overhand and a noble oshi-dashi and also a yummy side kick to the throat. Magomedov won't shatter the cutman.

Nallo vs. Seixas
I fancy Mandel Nallo at -275. He has a cybernetic piledriver. Nallo should finish the TV audience. Bank on it!

Faraldo vs. Gudde
I am all about Roman Faraldo at -625. He has a jarring knife hand block. Faraldo must assist the counteragent.

Huerta vs. Gonzalez
I like Chris Gonzalez at -275. He has a brilliant jab and a delicious ouchi gaeshi. Gonzalez might threaten the counteragent. Obey my dog!

Nurmagomedov vs. Hamel
I am going with Usman Nurmagomedov at -820. He has a faux finger lock. Nurmagomedov should prove the performance.

Watanabe vs. Lara
I elect Alejandra Lara at -185. She has a captivating double leg flapjack. Lara shall employ the opposing forces.

Pitbull vs. Sanchez II
I am taking Patricio Pitbull at -250. He has a youthful leaping clothesline. Pitbull shall weaken the cycle.
