THANK YOU BELLATOR

Predictions: 1 of 14 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 1755 others

Very happy that Bellator gave Fedor this HUGE retirement fight, last weekend with Frankie it all just did not feel right he deserved to go out facing another veteran and legend of the game (like Cruz for example) so for Bellator to not make the same mistake with their legend Fedor is a real blessing. No matter what people will say about their ages for me this is a real legacy matchup for Fedor if he can avenge this loss especially at his age then he will climb higher in the GOAT conversation and going out on top with the longevity he has already shown will not be comparable to any other. Fedor is truly in a lane on his own and I hope he secures the win to further cement himself in the MMA history books!

Gonzalez vs. Rohskopf
Max Rohskopf, DEC
Max Rohskopf is that poor guy who decided to quitt on the stoole in his first and last UFC fight after being announced like the next big killer. I'm glad to see he's rebounding well, because he showed skills and talent, I'm sure he was just too young and immature (and they never gave him a second chance)...

Bader vs. Emelianenko II
Ryan Bader, TKO, R1
It would be awesome to see fedor win the belt before he calls it quits but I think he’s just too old. Bader is on the decline as well but he has more in the tank at 265

Nemkov vs. Romero
Vadim Nemkov, DEC
Idc how good he’s been looking. Yoel is gonna lose 50-45 quite clearly

Homasi vs. Ward
Sabah Homasi, TKO, R1
I love everything about this matchmaking. This is gonna be stupidly violent and someone is going home in a strecher

Hughes vs. Karakaya
Ethan Hughes, TKO, R2
Never trust someone from the Turkish regional scene

Avsaragova vs. Lara
Diana Avsaragova, DEC
I had the (dis)pleasure of watching Lara’s most recent fight in person; what a showcase of godawful fight iq. She’s gonna get smoked

Gonzalez vs. Rohskopf
Chris Gonzalez, DEC
This seems like recency bias. Gonzalez is much more proven against a much higher level of competition. We don’t even know if max has the courage to fight through adversity yet

Neal vs. Albrektsson
Grant Neal, DEC
Albrektsson is actually good no clue how he lost to that can last fight. However, he sucks when he fights wrestlers so they aren’t doing him any favors here

Bates vs. Lugo
Jornel Lugo, DEC
Bares is super talented but he’s just not ready for someone on the level of lugo

Why do Bellator fight cards never have the rankings under the fighters (regional or worldwide)? Every other promotion has them except Bellator events.
