If I had to guess, I would think fedor is bellator fighter number 5. I think whoever it is they are still locked in negotiations and with Fedor it seems like there would be some serious talk about opponents. I don't think he wants to fight someone like Rihards Bigis or Shoma Shibasai in his last fight

Inoue vs. Takizawa
Naoki Inoue, DEC
This feels like a fight that already happened, I blame the BW GP from last year... but Naoki's probably going to jump ship to the UFC if he clears this one

Motoya vs. Bontorin
Rogério Bontorin, DEC
Motoya looked fantastic in his last fight, but I think Bontorin's caliber is going to show here

Gustavo vs. Case
Luiz Gustavo, TKO, R1
Luiz brings the violence, seems they want to free him up for a potential title fight with Satoshi early next year

Tokoro vs. Dodson
John Dodson, TKO, R1
I love Tokoro, but I feel like Dodson hits too ******* hard for our favorite fighting janitor to walk away from this unscathed

Tokoro is fairly decent, despite his age and record. Definitely not a one sided fight considering Dodson did lose to Cody Gibson

Tafa wrecked his opponent in brave today with ease, so he should have no problem showing up for this fight

I think he's gonna lose though, No idea why he's a favorite on Tap. Sudario just easily destroyed a 7-0 guy, I think he's gonna be too much for Tafa
