Don’t let the 12-6 record fool you as Muro trains out of Jackson Wink, has a lot of experience and 4 amateur fights making him in a combined 16-6. His latest performance was against ex-ufc fighter Devin Powell. Let’s see how this one goes guys!

Predictions: 7 of 11 Winners, 0 Perfect, 380 Points   |   Tied for 1110th

Pitbull vs. McKee Jr.
AJ McKee Jr., DEC
Hard to say just because of the fact that McKee hasn't faced anyone like Pitbull before but I'm really feeling him here. I like the speed, I like the kicking game, I like the volume, I like the wrestling and that 8in reach advantage could really keep a smaller guy like Pitbull on his heels. I'm curious about how he'll look going 5 and how he'll react to getting hit by Pitbull cause he's barely even gotten cracked so far in his career other than a few instances.

Burnell vs. Sanchez
Emmanuel Sanchez, DEC
Good ass fight, could see it either way but I always believed that Sanchez was underrated.

Nurmagomedov vs. Muro
Usman Nurmagomedov, TKO, R2
Not a can but he will be crushed. When Usman develops, Bellator bout to have Russians and Amosov as champs in every division.

Mamedov vs. Primus
Brent Primus, SUB, R2
Primus is so juiced lol. Thinking his ju jitsu can get his this upset but he spent a lot of time on his back against Chandler. Chandler real damn hard to submit tho.

Gonzalez vs. Yamauchi

Also I heard apparently AJ only has 2 fights left on his Bellator deal, can anyone confirm that? I imagine his ideal scenario is Pitbull at 145, then Pitbull at 155 then get a big bag from the UFC like Chandler did but it'll be interesting to see how it plays out. If he makes it obvious that he's leaving after his next fight I can't see Bellator giving him the opportunity to become double champ.

One of the best fights of 2021 thus far on this card. 

Pitbull vs. McKee has massive implications and I can't wait. I think Pitbull is a Top 4 FW in the world, and I think he'll take out McKee in surprisingly easy fashion, but I acknowledge the ability of AJ McKee. He has a real shot here.

UFC can gtfo with yet another trash-tier card this weekend. All eyes should be on Bellator, and I hope their numbers reflect as much.

TheRealKat said he believes that Usman is finally getting a real fight and to disregard Muro's 12-6 record because he trains at JacksonWink.


Mr. Kat, the oddsmakers don't seem to agree with your assessment of Muro's fighting skills. Four books have released a line on this fight so far. They have Usman at -750, -900, -925, and -1000.


Let me guess, you were one of the people on here who thought Thiago would be a challenge for Islam.
