Prediction Comments

Prediction: Mix  |  Submission  |  Round 2

Archuleta vs. Pettis
Juan Archuleta, DEC
Sure, they're the same size almost exactly, but I just see Pettis struggling with the power and strength that Archuleta packs. Not the power that's gonna sleep someone with one shot, but that gritty, junkyard dog, wrestler strength. Pettis is gonna struggle. But Archuleta isn't gonna come close to finishing the fight. I know it sounds ridiculous, but Archuleta is gonna win by being dominant..... Without being dominant. A decision fighter is what I'm explaining. And that's what's gonna happen. A strong decision.

Johnson vs. Azevedo
Anthony Johnson, TKO, R1
Rumble Johnson isn't as big a question mark for me, because he's got the difference maker which obviously is the nuclear powered bombs that detonate on your face whenever he lands. If he didn't have that equalizer, there's probably nooo way I'd take Rumble here. Azevedo absolutely could shock 93% of the ppl here.

Page vs. Anderson
Michael Page, TKO, R2
Derek Anderson, what can you say bad about him, except for maybe "this isn't a good matchup" I'm just fascinated by the combined record only being 35-4 between the 2 of these dudes.

Stots vs. Hill
Raufeon Stots, DEC
Didn't I just bring up the combined records of both guys being 35-4??? Deja vu.. Good ******* fights on this card tooo. Bellator weirdly putting on great shows lately. Thank Showtime, eh????

Larkin vs. Carvalho
Lorenz Larkin, TKO, R3
Someone told me Carvalho was to headline an upcoming LFA card...... Which sounds about right. Carvalho been strugggglin. And Larkin isn't gonna make things easier. Lol

Mix vs. Morales
Patchy Mix, SUB, R2
Man.... I was soooooo looking forward to Mix strangling the **** outta "Wish's version of Conor McGregor - Mikey1903"

You can parlay this entire card and win so long as the judges don’t screw you over, fighters don’t make stupid decisions, or if all the favorites get a finish.

Weak New Predictions

Prediction: Mix  |  Decision

Stots vs. Hill
I crave Raufeon Stots at -225. He has a bonkers bolo punch. Stots isn't about to zonk the corner man.

Larkin vs. Carvalho
I have got Lorenz Larkin at -205. He has an amoral gogoplata. Larkin won't quarantine the masterpiece.

Johnson vs. Azevedo
I like Anthony Johnson at -485. He has a zingy stutter step. Johnson ought to charge the achievement.

Mix vs. Morales
I select Patchy Mix at -1000. He has a wretched chin. Mix could modulate the canvas.

Storley vs. Hussein
I go for Logan Storley at -1410. He has a kosher fight IQ and a trendy lumberjack sweep and also a distinctive heart stomp. Storley can terminate the underdog.

Perez vs. Shutt
I have got Erik Perez at -500. He has a delicious tsuri-dashi. Perez ought to scramble the rival.

Page vs. Anderson
I want Michael Page at -300. He has a gauche kouchi gari and a natural hammerfist. Page should choke the crowd noise.

Corrales vs. Campbell
I like Henry Corrales at -900. He has an exhaustive butterfly sweep. Corrales will likely highlight the achievement.

Pitbull vs. Queally
I believe in Patricky Pitbull at -300. He has a wacky ground and pound. Pitbull might kick the adversary.

Almeida vs. Soto
I want Weber Almeida at -550. He has a passionate stutter step. Almeida is about to balance the enemy.

Eblen vs. Madrid
I desire Johnny Eblen at -450. He has a lascivious fallaway moonsault slam. Eblen might damage the senses.

Archuleta vs. Pettis
I am obsessed with Juan Archuleta at -185. He has a final bolo punch and an odd guillotine. Archuleta can hamper the ring announcer.

I like Weber. He's got a little Machida blood in him. .....Also, I can't see myself backing a guy who's fought opponents with a combined 1-16 record. Not happening.

Prediction: Mix  |  Submission  |  Round 1

Archuleta vs. Pettis
Sergio Pettis, DEC
It is not known what to expect in the Sergio Pettis fights: Pettis gave a great surprise by beating Joseph Benavidez and after that fight he was easily beaten by Jussier Formiga (who was supposed to be a much easier challenge). Sergio Pettis took the punches from Tyson Nam and Rob Font, but was knocked out by Benoit at UFC 185. I take it for an upset from '' Baby Pettis '' tonight, he has a good striking and I think he is capable of surprising To Archuleta, the '' Spaniard '' is a very good fighter but I think Pettis can clearly manage to win at least 3 rounds and give an upset avoiding the potential match up of Archuleta vs. Horiguchi

Johnson vs. Azevedo
Anthony Johnson, TKO, R1
Respect for Azevedo for taking the fight on short notice against the fearsome Rumble Johnson, but I think we all know how the fight will end. The possibility of Azevedo is to take advantage of a possible rust in Rumble to knock him down and look for the rear-naked choke (effective method to defeat Rumble during his career). But I think that from the 4 years of inactivity Johnson will be able to get the KO before finishing the first round.

Page vs. Anderson
Michael Page, DEC
Before Sean O'Malley there was Michael Venom Page! Yeah the King of Can Crusher is back, Derek Anderson is a much better fighter than 90% of past MVP opponents, but he is a 155 pound, despite possessing good qualities and surprise victories in the past I think the difference is Height and reach added to MVP's experience in welterweight is too much for Anderson's chances. I doubt that MVP achieves the Knockout since as I said Anderson is above the typical level of competition for MVP and if he is not a heinz can it is impossible for Page to crush him.

Larkin vs. Carvalho
Lorenz Larkin, DEC
Carvalho is done, Larkin is not the most entertaining fighter but he does possess good weapons in the standing fight (for example the use of leg kicks and also the ability to manage distances). Carvalho has the chance of the puncher and more considering that Larkin's jaw is not the best and less at 185 lbs. But Carvalho is nothing compared to what he was before the Mousasi fight.
