It's heavyweight so anything could happen, but Fortune is a high-level wrestler and Mitrione's wrestling is garbage and at this point I don't think it's ever getting better.

Made a last-minute switch to Kielholtz after watching a bit of tape on both. If Julianna uses her grappling then I think she runs away with it, but the story of her whole career has pretty much been her striking game, and I can't see a lifelong judoka turned striker outstriking a decorated KB champ, even with the height and reach advantage.

Think Denise is worth a couple of bucks due to her newfound power and Velasquez's willingness to jump head first into danger. Probably better to skip the fight betting wise tho.

Fortune is a better bet as far as big favs go, Mitrione is done.

Am I crazy for thinking Nick giuletti has a decent chance at an upset? Campbell has good striking but his takedown defense is suspect in the fights I've seen. Giuletti was a runner up all American that holds guys down against the fence.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 10 of 10 Winners, 3 Perfect, 615 Points   |   43rd Place

Velasquez vs. Kielholtz
Juliana Velasquez, SUB, R3
Gonna get hit by something big early, makes her realize she has to grapple then when she does her size and strength is gonna be a little too much for Kielholtz. If she chooses to strike, her striking is too wild and Kielholtz will time her.

Mattos vs. Hamilton
Matheus Mattos, SUB, R1
Someone explain the line here? Was expecting Mattos like -500. Hamilton seems like a regional scene guy and Mattos while not at the level of Magomedov and Yan still earned a title shot at ACA.

Eblen vs. Davis
Johnny Eblen, TKO, R2
Eblen looks like a potential contender at MW. Why is he not fighting better guys?

Law vs. Macuka
Cody Law, TKO, R1
Straight monster. Bellator knows what they're doing getting these guys early.

Soto vs. Benjilany
Adil Benjilany, DEC
Underdog pick. He's +110 on the books but only 9% are siding with him. Soto doesn't have the most impressive record too and looks solid against Weber Almeida but he totally gassed out in that one. Don't know much about Benjilany but after losing 2 in a row he must have something special if Bellator is keeping him around.

Velasquez vs. Kielholtz
Denise Kielholtz, DEC
If Velasquez mixes in the grappling this is probably a win for her. Going underdog for the hell of it.

Fortune vs. Mitrione
Tyrell Fortune, TKO, R1
I'm hoping for a Mitrione KO win, but I'll feel stupid if I don't go Fortune. I also do not think Fortune is all that either.

Blencowe vs. Silva
Arlene Blencowe, TKO, R2
Who knows

Eblen vs. Davis
Johnny Eblen, SUB, R1
Line is a bit wide IMO, I really like Eblen and think he should use his wrestling for this. Apparently this Davis guy is a half decent boxer. Could also be another KO for Johnny.

Markes vs. Sowma
Ronny Markes, DEC
Whoever wins this one will look like a huge favorite in retrospect.

Law vs. Macuka
Cody Law, TKO, R2
I like Cody's ground and pound when he does use it. Could easily lead to a rear naked.

Avsaragova vs. Gulfin
Diana Avsaragova, TKO, R1
Should be a given finish for Diana.

Soto vs. Benjilany
Johnny Soto, SUB, R2
Wouldn't be surprised if Benjilany cruises in the striking and ends up winning. Might even check Soto's chin.

Props to those who grabbed Adil at +200. That's killer. I don't think Soto strikes twice here. Adil had more bellator fights, fought better guys, and has a better gym with Duke rufus/ Belal. Time to dine.
