Its a tough pick but Limas last 2 losses have been against top competition so you can't count him out

Lima vs Page II
MVP via decision 
If Page doesn’t showboat and play around i think he’s got this one, that being said Lima is still very much a threat despite his last couple of fights ending in losses. MVP by decision if not TKO. Also bellator cmon do a five round main event smh. 

Whiteford vs Fisher 
Whiteford via decision 
Abit of a toss up but i think whiteford has fought tougher opponents in his last couple fights compared to andrew fisher. Hopefully he gets the dub and then we get a bellator glasgow event🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

Why is McCourt fighting Borga? Borga lost to someone who was ranked lower than McCourt, McCourt literally also just beat another ranked fighter. More importantly why is it the co-main?

Lima vs. Page II
Michael Page, TKO, R2
I know MVP isn't facing elite level guys, but he's not facing garbage cans anymore, and still looks like a superhero (or a supervilain) doing it. The guy clearly has amazing talent, unusual physical advantages that he knows how to use (that insane reach), and is still improving (good TD defense, creative submissions attemps, devastating clinch...), so I do think he can KO Douglas Lima this time, if he's a little more precautious. If so, it will be really interesting to see him face other elite welterweights, just to see flashes of what his career could have been if the UFC signed him instead of Bellator... I wonder how many good years of fighting he has left, but given he still seems to be in his absolute prime, maybe a UFC career is not completely out of reach afetr all, but the window is closing fast. We will see.

Bertaud vs. Kallionidou
Lucie Bertaud, DEC
Lucie Bertaud deserves a little presentation for those who don't know who she is : a very decorated amateur boxer, she is a 5 time european and France boxing champion, and also a Sambo and a kickboxing champion in France. It's a shame she didn't compete for MMA earlier in her decorated career, as it may be a little late (at 36 years old) to accomplish something big... But she's still learning, and a real athletic beast, so a title in Bellator isn't out of the equation if she can put it together, as she has one of the best hands in the organization, from a technical point of vue.

Diatta vs. Rose
Fabacary Diatta, DEC
French fighter Fabacary Diatta is a good prospect, young, undefeated and still plenty of room to grow. This should be interesting.

Has Page had enough experience and improvement with his more active schedule? Are his losses a sign that Lima is slowing down despite being pretty young still at just shy of 34?

I think MVP is at a better level now. He beat Melilo (who is coming off a win over prospect Mohamed Karaki) and Ross Houston who technically beat UFC fighter Nicholas Dalby but it was overturned due to “unsafe surface”

Lima vs. Page II
Douglas Lima, TKO, R3
In my opinion Lima is just a horrible style matchup for MVP. The kicks are too fast, especially for somebody like MVP who's biggest weapon is speed. You can't out speed Lima's kicks, they are just way too quick and powerful.

McCourt vs. Borga
Leah McCourt, SUB, R2
3-3 and 5-1? Co-main event? Ugh Bellator why do you do this to me...

Oh looky me picking a 38 y/o fighter... A LOT of old people on this card, too terrified to pick most fights on here.

I would love to see MVP get KOed again.  He has only fought one real opponent so far and that is the one he lost to.
