There are a couple of decent fights here.

I think 2 of the quarters will be quite straightforward, with Saunders beating Cisneros by an early TKO, and Lima getting a 2nd or 3rd round submission of Carl.

The other 2 fights are more interesting. Hornbuckle v Santos is the most intriguing fight i think. Santos is 49-6 including a 9 fight unbeaten streak. I'd never heard of him before Bellator signed him, but he looked decent enough in a decision win over Cury, looked to have decent leg kicks. I think hornbuckle will be too much for him, and will get a late finish. Will be interesting to see how the Brazil vet does in America.

Weedman-Lozano is an intriguing fight too, both guys lost in season 4, Weedman looking more impressive. I think 3 outta 4 times Weedman wins this, but Lozano has dynamite in his fists which always makes it exciting.

So i've got Saunders, Lima, Hornbuckle and Weedman going through.

On the undercard, i'm excited to see Bezerra again, the guy looks a quality fighter. They've given him a tough fight though, Heckman is no pushover, but i can;t back against Bezerra.
Foster should beat Main comfortably; as should Karavackus against Maynard. I don't know anything about the other 4 prelim fighters.
