YOOOOOOO! Holy **** this card looks good so far! Why has no one been talking about this? Golm vs James is not main event worthy, but prospect battle between Colgan and Montalvo, Khabilov making his return against Jaleel Willis, Joey Davis apparently making his return (I hope its again fellow inactive undefeated lay off master Shamil Nikaev to kill one of them off, but it'll probably be against a can), Aaron Jeffrey getting his chance to cement himself at the top of the division, Nallo vs Wilson should be a fun banger, and hell even the woman's fight between Zingano and McCourt is half decent. Me likey this card

90% chance one of these guys pulls out and gets replaced by a can, always seems to happen when Bellator matches up prospects

Guess I'll have to root for Willis here cuz Khabilov is boring as hell. Think Jeffery gets a finish against Salter. Pretty hard to take down and much better on the feet than John, also better cardio.

Golm/James as main event I thought was a typo/error, but some of these fights are pretty solid. Just can't believe the main event choice.

Willis vs. Khabilov
Rustam Khabilov, DEC
Arf, I hate Khabilov, not because he's boring to watch, but because he is boring AND winning. So I can't just not watch the guy. What happen to him tho, he used to be so fun to watch ! I remember in his first UFC fights when he was finishing guys by supplex and winning Fight of the Night against Masvidal, I was so excited about his future... Is it the loss to Benson Henderson that broke something in his mind ? Because while remaning a good fighter and winning 7 out of 9 after that loss, he never looked the same and even became comically boring to watch, likeCathal Pendred or Elias Theodorou (RIP). Well, he should be dominant in Bellator but he's not getting young... Did someone know why he is making his Bellator debut 3 years after his last fight in UFC ?

Not a lot of casual names, but this looks like an awesome card. Glad to see some older guys making use of their time and staying active, Salter, James, Khabilov. Also I wonder what took Khabilov so long.

Golm vs. James
Daniel James, TKO, R1
Not really main event worthy but **** this fight is awesome. Both underrated heavyweights. I like roided up James here

Zingano vs. McCourt
Cat Zingano, DEC
There’s nobody besides cyborg who can beat roided zingano. I doubt Leah mcCanCrusher is the one to do it

Salter vs. Jeffery
Aaron Jeffery, TKO, R2
Salter is always dangerous but he’s on the decline. Jeffery is a really solid mw; if he hadn’t got such tough opponents on dwcs, he would be in the ufc and doing well. At least he’s a top contender here

Willis vs. Khabilov
Rustam Khabilov, DEC
Poor Willis never gets easy fights. Rustam may be one of the most boring fighters on the roster but he’s talented. Layoff shouldn’t affect him too much

Colgan vs. Montalvo
Archie Colgan, TKO, R2
Rare prospect vs prospect fight from Bellator. Colgan is really green but has high level wrestling and good power. He should beat montalvo

Hamel vs. Browne
Nick Browne, DEC
Hamel is way better than his record shows

Wilson vs. Nallo
Jay Jay Wilson, TKO, R2
Still not 100% sold on Wilson, but nallo seems to get his ass whooped against every step up

Gracie vs. Pacheco
Khonry Gracie, SUB, R2
Gracie is a can. I bet they looked hard to give him a winnable fight

James last win was legendary

Zingano vs. McCourt
Leah McCourt, DEC
Zingano is a buly for sure she will probably win

Salter vs. Jeffery
Aaron Jeffery, TKO, R2
I think Jeffery will challenge for title soon if he doesnt lose

Willis vs. Khabilov
Rustam Khabilov, DEC
Damn Dagestan taking over Bellator now

Colgan vs. Montalvo
Archie Colgan, TKO, R3
Someones 0 will go

Hamel vs. Browne
Nick Browne, DEC
Browne doing it for all the bald guys

Wilson vs. Nallo
Jay Jay Wilson, DEC
Great fight both are good

Gracie vs. Pacheco
Khonry Gracie, SUB, R2
Always an honor to see a Gracie fight, Pacheco has a ko win over a 3-0 guy Gracie should be careful

Predictions: 8 of 15 Winners, 3 Perfect, 530 Points   |   Tied for 224th

Henderson vs. Stiller
Maria Henderson, SUB, R2
Henderson is too old to really do anything in mma, but she will be fun in bellator

Cauley vs. Trainer
Sullivan Cauley, TKO, R1
Another great prospect fight. Trainer is kind of a bust but he is gigantic for the weightclass and does hit hard. Cauley is one of bellators best prospects. He just looks better and better each fight. Will be interesting to see how he does fighting someone with a pulse

Gibson Jr. vs. Tokov
Lance Gibson Jr., DEC
Great prospect fight. Gibson finally gets to fight someone with a pulse. Tokov isn’t that hood imo but both his losses have been close fights against solid guys

Davis vs. Creighton
Joey Davis, TKO, R1
So happy Davis is back. He’s one of my fav prospects Bellator has

Sorenson vs. Collins
Sara Collins, DEC
Never heard of this girl but she should win

Edwards vs. Cleveland
Christian Edwards, SUB, R1
Edwards should be able to snap the L streak here but who knows

Meredith vs. Carrillo
Bryce Meredith, TKO, R1
Meredith is still green but has been impressive thus far. Kinda sucks Bellator took him and not ufc but it is what it is

Brennan vs. San Diego
Lucas Brennan, SUB, R1
Brennan fight someone with a pulse challenge: impossible
