Bellator 101 in review, plus Bellator 102 preview

It’s been all Bellator these past two weeks as we slide from September into October. So with that here we go with a look at Bellator 101 results:

Bellator 101 in Review

Main Event: Joe Warren vs. Nick Kirk

Prediction: Warren by decision. Result: Warren by submission. This was to be expected as Warren worked with Greg Jackson for this fight. However, I do feel I should note that this is basically a fast track for Warren to get a title shot as this is only a two fight tournament.

Co-main Event: Marcus Davis vs. Alexander Sarnavskiy

Prediction: Sarnavskiy by submission. Result: Same. In reality Davis should be considering retirement because of the punishment he’s taken over his career. It didn’t help that he had a journeyman career in boxing prior to his entry into MMA which has only contributed to possible brain damage.

John Alessio vs. Will Brooks

Prediction: Brooks by strikes. Result: Brooks by decision. Brooks’s well rounded fight game and experience in the Bellator helped him advance.

Saad Awad vs. Martin Stapleton

Prediction: Stapleton by decision. Result: Awad by submission. Awad’s promotional experience helped get him through to the next fight.

Rich Clementi vs. Ricardo Tirloni

Prediction: Clementi by submission. Result: Tirloni by decision. Tirloni took this fight on 18 days notice and stepped up to the occasion. Also Clementi’s long career has definitely had more then a few ups and downs.

Overall score: 2/5; .4 prediction percentage. 0.5 for Warren’s win, 1 for Sarnavskiy’s win over Marcus Davis, and 0.5 for Brooks win.

Bellator 102 Predictions

Main Event: Cheick Kongo vs. Mark Godbeer

Prediction: Kongo by strikes. Cheick Kongo’s a striker and in reality this tournament is a short cut for Kongo to get a heavyweight title shot.

Co-main Event: Lavar Johnson vs. Vinicius Queiroz

Prediction: Johnson by strikes. Johnson has more overall experience having fought some big names in the UFC. We will see how this goes.

Rafael Silva vs. Anthony Leone

Prediction: Leone by decision. Leone is undefeated in his past four fights including two Bellator bouts and the tournament first round fight.

Jason Butcher vs. Mikkel Parlo

Prediction: Butcher by submission. Butcher is undefeated with all finishes and four Bellator fights including the preliminary round this season.

Perry Filkins vs. Brennan Ward

Prediction: Filkins by strikes. This is honestly a close fight that can go either way because the two fighters are so similar in their fight records.

How do you think Bellator 102 will go? Leave a comment to let us know!

#1 lesson learned from Bellator 101 and Marcus Davis: If you're going to name a child Emma, make sure it's your first, so you're never in a position to refer to her as "and Emma".

Distant #2 lesson: Know when to call it quits.
