Lima vs. Amosov
Douglas Lima, DEC
Not surprised the picks are so close here. Lima has struggled against good wrestlers in the past, but his wrestling defense has improved a lot. On the feet Lima wins this easy, so the game plan is simple for Amasov... takedowns! But, Amasov's cardio in 3 rounds leave a lot to be desired, so I don't trust it for 5 rounds. As long as Lima can bank one of the first 3 rounds, I think he will get the 4th and 5th, so Lima by decision.

Daley vs. Jackson
Jason Jackson, DEC
I don't know why Daley would take this fight on pretty short notice. It's a bad matchup for him considering how good Jackson's wrestling has looked his past couple fights. And his striking ain't all that bad. Daley at 175 looks a lot healthier, but that chin's still old and he still got caught in his last fight against Homasi. Forget about wrestling, I think Jackson even wins this on the feet.

Claxton vs. Gonzales
Justin Gonzales, TKO, R2
Claxton looking like the Bellator version of Michael Johnson in that pic lol

Brennan vs. Skibicki
Lucas Brennan, SUB, R2
This fight screams Bellator lol

Bell vs. Mokhnatkina
Amanda Bell, TKO, R2
I feel like this fight is set up to get Marina a win. But she lost to Janay Harding once she finally stepped up to Bellator-level competition. Going against the grain here and picking Bell.

Crutchmer vs. Chokheli
Kyle Crutchmer, DEC
Crutchmer is a fighter with a great background in folkstyle and freestyle wrestling. 80% on Tapology choose Chokheli due in large part to Crutchmer losing his undefeated record, but there is no shame in being beaten by Kemran Lachinov (who in my opinion may be the dark horse in the current TUF season). Crutchmer is part of AKA and I imagine that for this fight he used an aggressive wrestling strategy.

I mean this in the most politically sensitive tone and manor. Nick Newell’s opponent has lots of armbar finishes...... this matchup alone cuts his chances of armbar finish in half.

I’m hoping for a Nick Newell submission, but with a long layoff I could see him getting a decision.... but either way I’m really thinking Newell wrestle F’s this guy into retirement.

Predictions: 8 of 10 Winners, 3 Perfect, 500 Points   |   Tied for 208th

Lima vs. Amosov
Yaroslav Amosov, DEC
People question Amosov's cardio, but grappling exchange against a great wrestler like Logan Storley would leave anyone exhausted. Despite being exhausted, Amosov kept throwing strikes (with much less force and speed) and had the heart to survive the last minute of the fight without giving up despite being in a very compromised position and situation. Douglas Lima is very dangerous as he has finishing wins over guys like Koreshkov (2x), Ben Saunders (2x) and MVP. But Amosov is able to wrestle 5 rounds against Douglas Lima and use a strategy similar to that used by Mousasi, only taking into account that in welterweight Lima will not have as passive a start as against Gegard.

Pico vs. Lee
Aaron Pico, TKO, R2
If Pico fights calmly like in his last 2 fights I think he can work with his wrestling and good boxing to get the finish on the ground or standing. But if he freaks out like against Corrales, then he'll get knocked out again.

Jackson vs. Lemminger
Mark Lemminger, DEC
Lemminger lost his last two fights, but they were against Amosov (current title challenger) and Jaleel Willis (a prospect in a close fight). Lemminger I think that he is projected to enter the top 10 of the category at Bellator, Jackson quite the opposite may not last long in the circular cage.

Newell vs. King
Nick Newell, SUB, R2
Newell with another rear-naked choke submission win! I know it may not happen anymore but I would like you to try to reschedule the fight between Nick Newell against Zach Zane for the third time, it would be an interesting clash of styles.

Predictions: 5 of 10 Winners, 3 Perfect, 380 Points   |   705th Place

Lima vs. Amosov
Douglas Lima, TKO, R3
Amosov will need to beat Lima by taking him down, avoiding the big shots and just outpointing him with his jab. The thing is with Lima, his takedown defense has improved and he's an expert at landing those hard counters which are set up with his low kicks. Believe that he's bound to land one of those during this fight and it'll likely end this one.

Daley vs. Jackson
Jason Jackson, DEC
Daley is gonna get taken down and out volumed on the feet if he cannot land that big bomb. It's really tough to pick him here especially after his las performance where he took some damage against a lower level guy than Jackson.

Crutchmer vs. Chokheli
Levan Chokheli, TKO, R1
Couldn't find Levan's last fight anywhere just honestly guessing here. He's training with Gegard and he knocked out Issa Isakov which makes me think he's more than just a padded record.

Claxton vs. Gonzales
Ty-wan Claxton, DEC
Both wrestlers but I think Claxton is gonna be the more physically stronger and quicker guy. Might pin him against the fence and make it boring but whatever works for him

Bell vs. Mokhnatkina
Marina Mokhnatkina, DEC
Mokhnatkina has as good of a base as you can get for a women's fighter she just can't put it together. Hoping she'll look like a better fighter 2 years from now.
