    Hoping Silva beats Sonnen. I have no idea who wins though. A few years back I would have expected Sonnen to win for sure. Now I don't know. Sonnen is on the Bob Sapp scale since his 2nd loss to Anderson Silva. He's a 1/10 on that scale though. If he doesn't have a lot of early success he instantly folds. That's the worst thing about his win against Shogun. If that guillotine didn't work he'd have given up and Shogun would have won.

    Hoping Fedor wins but don't think he will. Mitrione probably wins and it'll be really sad.

    Chandler should win this based on what I've heard about Primus and by looking at his record. Chandler's really good and Primus doesn't appear to be, although I don't think I've seen him fight, so I'm not offering much here.

    Lima/Larkin is great. Someone said this is the best fight in MMA this month. Sounds about right to me. I have no idea who wins but it should be a very entertaining fight.

    Looking forward to seeing Pico's debut. He's really young, a really good wrestling and he's trained boxing for a while too apparently. Hopefully his debut lives up to the hype. Not the easiest fight to start his MMA career though.

    Davis/Bader is a really good fight too.

    The main event you know both guys have one thing on their mind. Wandy will be swinging from the fences from the start and might KO Sonnen early otherwise Sonnen will level change and g'n'p him. Can't help but think the sport has let Wandy down if he still has to fight at his age. Ofcourse he may just not be very good at anything else and have bad personal financial skills that keeps him fighting. But it still irks me to see these shop worn older guys still fighting.

    Don't really want to see Fedor cop any more damage. To me there is no reason for him to fight and is only tarnishing his glorious (GOAT) record. He's lost a lot of his speed and explosiveness with his punches and doubt he connects against Mitrione. He has copped a lot of punishment in his recent fights. Mitrione hits a lot harder than Maldonado.. Understand there is a demand to see both of these top two fights but it they are both a bit cringy for mine.

    Larkin/Lima should be a great bout. Best fight of the card. Can't believe Larkin got released by the UFC as I rate him as having potential to be the best WW in the world. Awesome stand-up and realy under rated and improving TDD. Whoever wins sets up a very exciting possible match up with Rory. Lima would silence some doubters with a win here.

    Always fun to watch Chandler aswell.

    All in all this card shows that Bellator has a good sprinkling of talent that has not been seen in a second tier Fight comp since the Strikeforce days. Competition with the UFC is always healthy and gives the fighters a second option if Reebok/Dana/UFC tries to hold them over a barrell when negotiating their contract. I hope Coker and Bellator succeed.

    Sad as it is to see Wand and Fedor still fighting at least they're being put in prominent positions, and Wand won't be on the end of much/any damage from Sonnen at least. Meanwhile BJ is in the opening TV fight for a free card under a few fighters I've never or barely heard of.

    It's a good card...I'll watch a few of those fights. Bellator's heading in the right direction but its all in increment steps. World wide coverage has to get done asap.

    Anyone catch Da Silva's dodgy attempt on the scales?lol

    Looking forward to this, although I don't see how Fedor possibly wins.

    Mitrione loses crowd with pro-Trump talk then wins them back with Tim Hague support.

    Could argue a 10-10 round but I'd give the edge to Sonnen

    Comfortable win for Sonnen, Wand taken down with little resistance.

    Pity Fedor didn't get Matt a bit flusher. Would have been funny if they both stayed down.
