Now this sort of matchup is what I wish Bellator would do with their prospects more often. Should be a great fight

Borics by TKO. There is still a level between these two. It's too early for Jay Jay

God knows what time it was when I was streaming this YEARS ago, and Ubereem was just beginning. It's incredibly comedic, and Overeem then went on his winning streak after this happened:



Still one of my favourite knockouts, love Sergei.

Kongo vs. Kharitonov
Cheick Kongo, DEC
I don't understand why Kharitonov is a big favourite here... I know he hits like a Russian truck, but Kongo, despite his age (46 ! ), is still a top 10 heavyweight and could beat some ranked UFC fighters IMO... He always was a very underated fighter anyway, maybe because of his boring style, nut shots and lack of charisma.

Hahahah this is not Pride sergie or russian rigged bumfights gonna lose his choice how thats about it.
Oh **** ****.. I had serg confused with another large russian pride fighter..still keep my pick.
Could be a FOTN or a boring decision with lots of wrestling from kongo.

Predictions: 6 of 9 Winners, 3 Perfect, 415 Points   |   Tied for 543rd

I have Kongo by decision, Kharitonov's last fight was a Boxing match where his physique looked horrible and his performance was lackluster also, but as a big Sergei fan I hope he can get the ko. (Without having his balls kicked it his body)

Predictions: 6 of 9 Winners, 2 Perfect, 390 Points   |   Tied for 623rd

Kongo vs. Kharitonov
Sergei Kharitonov, TKO, R3
I expect to see an all out slug fest with Kharitonov landing the cleaner and more damaging shots.

Wilson vs. Borics
Jay Jay Wilson, SUB, R3
Wilson to remain undefeated. I think he's got the better striking and grappling.

Storley vs. Schiro
Logan Storley, DEC
The boy Logan to get a TKO via GnP👊

Schoenfelder vs. Childs
Bailey Schoenfelder, TKO, R1
Bailey has some crazy power. 1st round TKO👀

Aguiar vs. Johnson
Taylor Johnson, SUB, R2
Johnson with the more solid wrestling and some power in his punches. Leaning on him to keep this fight on the ground to get a few submission attempts for the finish.

Hamel vs. Logan
Bryce Logan, DEC
Comfortable decision win for Logan.

Colgan vs. Fisher
Archie Colgan, TKO, R1
Fisher is struggling to find consistency. Colgan has the tools and power to finish this fight.

Tiller vs. Golm
Kelvin Tiller, DEC
Backing Tiller based on his experience. Golm has 3 Ls in a row and I don't see him turning a new leaf here.

Ferguson Jr. vs. Lincoln
Cody Lincoln, SUB, R3
Cody to take this fight to the ground to get a submission or grind out a decision victory.
