Pitbull Vs Borics

Predictions: 0 of 0 Winners, 0 Perfect, 0 Points   |   Tied for 1284th

I could honestly see Borics being too much for Pitbull on the feet to be honest. The pressure he put on Burnell was tremendous. Pitbulls power is the great equalizer though.

Carlyle hasn't been finished ever. And a big lightweight, a lot tougher fight than on paper! Really good!

McKee vs Carlyle is such an odd fight. When Carlyle doesn’t get his takedowns he usually gets pieced up badly and loses a decision. I think the same or worse will happen here

McKee kinda does everything carlyle does except better. The only thing I dont know is if McKee has more power on the feet as carlyle. His precision is better for sure but overall power I might give to spike. Other than that I see McKee winning. Really hope spike wins though or atleast puts a good show and doesnt lose badly, I like seeing him do well hes got a fun personality and style.

AJ vs the Alpha Ginger is such an intriguing match up that I'm actually kind of excited for it, especially that first round.

I’m most excited for Borics vs pitbull. Pitbull probably wins but Borics is gonna be the future of bellators 145. That kid is so much fun to watch

Predictions: 0 of 0 Winners, 0 Perfect, 0 Points   |   Tied for 1284th

I love Spike but this is a nightmare matchup. AJ’s grappling is going to be a huge deciding factor, as well as his underrated kicking game. I could see Spike winning this only if AJ’s Dad delves into his inner-****** again and gives AJ the stupidest gameplan imaginable.

Pitubll vs. Borics
Borics by TKO
Borics is one of the biggest and tallest featherweights on the planet. He is even better at long range striking than at close range, has amazing takedown defence and is very strong. I think it is a stylistically better matchup for him and he will get the job done.
