UFN: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa review, Bellator 111 review, plus Bellator 112 & UFC 171 p

The monthly UFC PPV is upon us as well as another week of Bellator MMA that should bring fireworks. So with that letís delve into things:

UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa

Main Event: Alexander Gustafsson #3 Light Heavyweight vs. Jimi Manuwa

Prediction: Manuwa by strikes. Result: Gustafsson by strikes. Gustafsson proved thatís heís still in title contention but thatís up for debate.

Co-main Event: Michael Johnson vs. Melvin Guillard

Prediction: Guillard by strikes. Result: Johnson by decision. It wasnít pretty but Johnson managed to continue his rising streak in the UFC.

Brad Pickett #5 Bantamweight vs. Neil Seery

Prediction: Pickett by submission. Result: Pickett by decision. Pickett did what was expected but like Daniel Cormier canít be measured.

Gunnar Nelson vs. Omari Akhmedov

Prediction: Nelson by submission. Result: Same. Nelson did exactly what was expected of him earning a Performance of the Night bonus.

Overall score: 2/4; 0.5 prediction percentage. 0.5 for Gustafssonís win, 0.5 for Pickettís win, and 1 for Nelsonís win by submission.

Bellator 111

Note: Even though one of the tournament bouts was on the preliminary card, it was scored with the main card as a tournament bout.

Main Event: Eduardo Dantes # 9 Bantamweight vs. Anthony Leone

Prediction: Dantes by decision. Result: Dantes by submission. This is arguably the submission of the year as it was so well executed.

Co-main Event: Lavar Johnson vs. Ryan Martinez

Prediction: Martinez by strikes. Result: Johnson by strikes. Martinez almost proved me right but a last minute TKO by Johnson spoiled it.

Peter Graham vs. Siala-Mou ďMight MoĒ Siliga

Prediction: Siliga by strikes. Result: Siliga by submission. Apparently Might Mo has developed a ground game despite his kickboxing.

Alexander Volkov vs. Mark Holota

Prediction: Volkov by strikes. Result: Same. Volkov clearly wants his title back and heís taken one more step to getting that chance.

Blagoi Ivanov vs. Rich Hale

Prediction: Ivanov by submission. Result: Ivanov by submission. Ivanov remains undefeated though it was by no means a pretty effort.

Overall score: 3/5; 0.6 prediction percentage. 0.5 for Dantes, 0.5 for Johnson. 0.5 for Might Mo, 1 for Volkov and 0.5 for Ivanovís win.

Bellator 112

Note: Even though itís a preliminary fight, one of the welterweight tournament fights will be scored with the main card as a tournament bout.

Main Event: Daniel Straus #9 Featherweight vs. Pat Curran #10 Featherweight

Prediction: Straus by decision. Straus handled Curran in a way Curran never has since moving down to featherweight. He can do it again.

Co-main Event: Nah-Shon Burrell vs. Andrey Koreshkov

Prediction: Koreshkov by strikes. Koreshkov has successfully rebounded form his loss to Ben Askren, now he wants that welterweight belt.

Cristiano Souza vs. Sam Oropeza

Prediction: Souza by submission. Souza has been given an opportunity to rise despite his loss on Fight Master as a late replacement.

Jesse Juarez vs. Adam McDonough

Prediction: McDonough by strikes. The undefeated prospect has one win with the promotion so far and could defeat the veteran Juarez.

Paul Bradley vs. Nathan Coy

Prediction: Bradley by submission. These two fought on the regional circuit before and Bradley won that encounter. Probably will this time too.

UFC 171: Hendricks vs. Lawler

Main Event: Johny Hendricks #1 Welterweight vs. Robbie Lawler #3 Welterweight

Prediction: Hendricks by strikes. Both men are very similar in that theyíre wrestlers turned strikers but Hendricks has the edge in both areas.

Co-main Event: Carlos Condit #2 Welterweight vs. Tyron Woodley

Prediction: Condit by strikes. Woodley may one day get a title shot but Condit has the experience to defeat the rising title prospect.

Diego Sanchez vs. Myles Jury

Prediction: Jury by submission. The undefeated prospect maybe up against a veteran but he has the skills to defeat Sanchez if played right.

Jake Shields #6 Welterweight vs. Hector Lombard

Prediction: Lombard by strikes. Lombard has had only one match at welterweight but he looked dominant. Shields though can wrestle.

Ovince St. Preux vs. Nikita Krylov

Prediction: Krylov by submission. The M-1 Global vet maybe a late replacement but he has the ability and will be wanting to prove himself.

Who do you think will come away as the new welterweight champion? Feel free to leave a comment!
