Borics vs. Burnell
Mads Burnell, DEC
Burnell might be my favorite prospect from Bellator; he mixes striking with grappling seamlessly, and he's very brainy too. Borics can explode, and he fights more with a sense of urgency, but I could see Mads eventually neutralizing him and grinding out a decision

Wilson vs. Rabadanov
Jay Jay Wilson, DEC
Wilson hooks the legs really well in the clinch (not sure of the wrestling terminology) and sets stuff up really well in general. Don't think Gadzhi will find as much success in grappling with him, and Wilson is a touch too calculated to get sparked on the feet, I think.

Can't belive the prelims are free

Predictions: 9 of 11 Winners, 5 Perfect, 665 Points   |   Tied for 121st

The prelim card is so stacked with prospects facing cans or fighters who are "okay", but not on their level. The fights I'm mostly hyped up for are the Polizi and Yamauchi fights, I mean how are these two on the prelims? After looking at the main card though, it's kind of justifiable.

**** that ****, how about Ad**** vs Law? The opponents Ad**** has beaten are all divers and cans, their records combine for a total of 2 - 31. I get sick of fans acting like the UFC is the only corrupt promotion in MMA when Bellator has been doing ******** like this since Dada 5000 had a cardiac arrest in the middle of the ring

Borics vs. Burnell
Mads Burnell, SUB, R4
Always been impressed with Mads, the UFC should not have let him go. Borics will get tired and that will be a wrap.

Davis vs. Anglickas
Phil Davis, DEC
Close fight but I see Phil wrestling him to a decision

Eblen vs. Salter
Johnny Eblen, TKO, R2
Good test, but Eblen is better on the feet and has good wrestling to keep Salter at bay

Wilson vs. Rabadanov
Gadzhi Rabadanov, DEC
Jay Jay is good, but a new weight class against a killer. Could go either way but I like the striking of Rabadanov and like his brother he has a really good ground game too.

Polizzi vs. Azevedo
Alex Polizzi, DEC
Polizzi is ok on the feet, enough to keep Augusto honest and should be able to get the wrestling in. Main worry is his gas tank. But I think he has this.

Cotton vs. Sandoval
Romero Cotton, TKO, R1

Ad**** vs. Law

Faraldo vs. Rayford
Roman Faraldo, TKO, R2
Faraldo is good

lol what is crazy is that Rayford isn't half bad but Faraldo is probably going to make him look like a complete can.  That isn't the case.  Rayford is an okay regional fighter.  But "Faraldo is good" doesn't even do it justice.  There are levels to this.

I can't imagine a guy showing up for a pay check more than Weston.  He is the short notice king.

Borics vs. Burnell
Mads Burnell, SUB, R2
I can't think of anyone else with that many finishes by Japanese Neck Tie, I think Burnell will implement his game.

Cotton vs. Sandoval
Romero Cotton, SUB, R1
Smellator has to always have at least one ******** matchup per card, and it looks like this is the one. In what world is pairing an undefeated fighter against a fighter with a losing record anything but blatant favoritism? None of the fans are fooled so the hype they try to build off of these manufactured wins doesn't work either. They will never match the UFC if they don't start even matchmaking and stop bringing in cans to get run over.

Avsaragova vs. Batara
Diana Avsaragova, TKO, R1
I'd pick Batara because I think the experience will help a lot here, but she is going to be dwarfed by Avsaragova and I feel she will get picked apart and bullied.

Ad**** vs. Law
Cody Law, TKO, R1
