So even though there’s a UFC Fight Night coming up this weekend it’s pretty Bellator dominated. So with that let’s delve into the fight cards:
Main Event: Joe Warren vs. Rafael Silva
Prediction: Silva by submission. Result: Warren by decision. Even though Silva won the first two rounds, Warren proved how tough he is.
Co-main Event: Andrey Koreshkov vs. Sam Oropenza (replace by Justin Baesman)
Prediction: Koreshkov by strikes. Result: Same. Koreshkov is at the top of his game and in addition Baesman had the fight on short notice.
Marcos Galvao vs. Thomas Vasquez
Prediction: Galvao by decision. Result: Same. The teammate of the Bellator Bantamweight Champion got his rebound and is ready for more.
Liam McGeary vs. Mike Mucitelli
Prediction: Mucitelli by submission. Result: McGeary by strikes. When two undefeated fighters face off one of them is going to loose.
Overall score: 2/4; 0.5 prediction percentage. 1 for Koreshkov’s win by strikes and 1 for Galvao’s decision victory. About an even score.
Main Event: Daniel Weichel vs. Desmond Green
Prediction: Green by decision. Green isn’t normally a finisher but he knows how the get the win and he has the ability to win the tournament.
Co-main Event: Chris Horodecki vs. Marlon Sandro
Prediction: Sandro by decision. The former Pancrase and Sengoku Featherweight Champion is looking for one last run and can do it.
Raphael Butler vs. Nick Rossborough
Prediction: Butler by strikes. The former boxer is undefeated and a big win could possibly enter him into the next heavyweight tournament.
Marius Zaromskis vs. Vaughn Anderson
Prediction: Zaromskis by strikes. Zaromskis is definitely the favorite but Anderson has been known to pull upsets. Zaromskis needs the win.
UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva
Main Event: Matt Brown #10 Welterweight vs. Erick Silva
Prediction: Silva by submission. Silva is probably one of the most underrated welterweights and though Brown’s been on a role that’ll end.
Co-main Event: Costas Philippou vs. Lorenz Larkin
Prediction: Larkin by strikes. Both men are in need of a win but Larkin seems to have a better overall striking game compared to Philippou.
Erik Koch vs. Daron Cruickshank
Prediction: Koch by submission. Koch was triumphant in his return to lightweight and by the numbers he is most likely to continue the wins.
Neil Magny vs. Tim Means
Prediction: Means by strikes. Means has had a good rebound time in Legacy FC and his return to the UFC will probably be triumphant.
Soa Palelei vs. Ruan Pottis
Prediction: Palelei by strikes. Palelei has been going undefeated for a while and he will likely beat UFC newcomer Ruan Pottis as well.
Chris Cariaso vs. Louis Smolka
Prediction: Cariaso by decision. Cariaso is on a two fight winning streak in the UFC and will probably defeat Smolka this coming Saturday.
