Bellator 99 in review & Bellator 100 preview, plus UFC 165 predictions

Reviews and previews for major fights around this week:
This was the first time the UFC didn’t have a fight card in a long time and now we’re back to it again. So I won’t waste time and here we go:

Bellator 99 in Review

Main Event: Patricio Freire vs. Diego Nunes

Prediction: Freire by strikes. Result: Same. Freire had more momentum and Nunes was coming into this with three losses in his last five fights.

Co-main Event: Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Houston Alexander

Prediction: Matyushenko by decision. Result: Same. As I said Matyushenko has a more rounded fight game compared to striker Alexander.

Justin Wilcox vs. Akop Stepanyan

Prediction: Stepanyan by strikes. Result: Wilcox by submission. Wilcox rose to the occasion as a replacement and moved up the tournament.

Desmond Green vs. Frabricio Guerreiro

Prediction: Guerreiro by submission. Result: Guerreiro by decision. Guerreiro didn’t finish the fight but he knows how to win and did just that.

Andrew Fisher vs. Joe Taimanglo

Prediction: Taimanglo by submission. Result: Taimanglo by decision. Obviously ring rust was not a factor for the usually bantamweight fighter.

Overall score: 3/5; .6 prediction percentage. 1 for Freire and Matyushenko’s wins, 0.5 for Guerreiro’s win and 0.5 for Taimanglo’s win.

Now for the fight predictions:

Bellator 100 Predictions

Main Event: Ben Saunders vs. Douglas Lima

Prediction: Lima by strikes. Lima not only finished Saunders before, but has finished Saunder’s opponent Bryan Baker and fought Ben Askren.

Co-main Event:War Machine vs. Vaughn Anderson

Prediction: Anderson by strikes. Anderson has only one loss in his career compared to War Machine who’s also had legal trouble in the past.

Luis Melo, Jr. vs. Ron Kesler

Prediction: Melo by submission. Melo was preparing for a fight with Matthew Riddle and as a result, is ready compared to replacement Kesler.

Brent Weedman vs. Justin Baesman

Prediction: Weedman by strikes. Weedman has more experience in Bellator and can finish fights compared to Bellator newcomer Baesman.

Rick Hawn vs. Herman Terrado

Prediction: Hawn by strikes. Hawn maybe moving back up from lightweight but is still dangerous against the promotional newcomer Terrado.

UFC 165 Predictions

Main Event: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson

Prediction: Jones by strikes. Gustafsson maybe a challenge but Jones has his game down to the point that he’ll pull off the win decisively.

Co-main Event: Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland

Prediction: Barao by submission. The Interim Champ in all likelihood will continue his undefeated streak into a fight with Dominick Cruz.

Brendan Schaub vs. Matt Mitrione

Prediction: Schaub by strikes. Schaub is a heavyweight standout and will probably beat fellow former NFL player Mitrione with more experience.

Costa Philippou vs. Francis Carmont

Prediction: Carmont by submission. Carmont is riding a ten fight win streak including five in the UFC and doesn’t look like he’ll be stopping.

Pat Healy vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov

Prediction: Nurmagomedov by strikes. Healy is coming off a marijuana suspension whereas Nurmagomedov is undefeated and well rounded.
