Usman vs. Pietilä is typical Bellator matchmaking.

Watching a stream... stream goes out, **** me I'm responsible for the stream. Everyone is looking at me, this is Fedor vs. Werdum. I'm struggling, I get the stream back on. Fedor is in a triangle choke, he taps once.

Shiet. Not we're here vs. Johnson? I would love to see him go out on a win, but his chin is GLASS now. One jab would put the legend down and out. 

I like Johnson though (Hold the jokes) he is just this guy, he either puts you out or gets put out. He fights, he's gritty, and he ain't scurred.

 hate this fight, Fedor getting KO'd bad, He shouldn't fight good young fighter, He should fight someone who over 40 like him or someone like Jake Hager.  Fedor haven't beaten anyone good or good in the time that they fought him in at least 10 years, This is just cruel to Fedor and the fan. No one want to see Fedor get ****** up bad in the first round

@duck the best part is that Fedor is almost certainly going to be a big favorite because casuals recognize his name and Tim Johnson might as well just be a blank space. You're right though, Johnson is going to separate his head from his shoulders.

I always pick Fedor he is often the underdog tim is dangerous and underrated but could easily be grappled.
At 45 I have no idea what is left in Fedor but I hope he wins and retires he has done amazing things in so many sports!
I nearly punched my tv during the Bret Rogers fight holy **** that was wild one of his first I saw live!

Time to pad that pick percentage with this card. That said, I picked Fedor to win even though I'm pretty certain he'll get knocked into next week. Like many of you, I just couldn't pick against him. Fedor's gonna have to be straight up flatlined for it to be stopped, though. As long as he has a pulse, the ref will probably lay down the Derrick Lewis "he's okay."
