I'm pretty pumped for a few of these fights.

-Attila Vegh vs TonTon. Everyone is pretty much counting TonTon out, I think he has a legit chance in winning this fight. Also Also coming in at 201 lbs makes me wonder if he losses, is Middleweight going to be a plan for him.

-Ill Will Brooks vs Saad Awad. Awad has finished his last 5 or so opponents including his last Bellator match in which he was suppose to lose in very quick fashion. He's been on a roll. And Brooks has mad potential. He's been very impressive in the few matches I've seen him in.

-David Rickels vs Jason Fischer II. This is their 2nd time fighting in a short period of time. Fischer's only loss has come from Rickels. I always enjoy the "Caveman". His last fight against Lloyd Woodard was pretty sweet.

-Blas Avena vs Lenny Lovato- I expect this to be a lot closer than their records indicate.

Holly Holm vs Katie Merrill- The chicks usually bring it. Last Bellator WMMA fight I say was Jessica Eye vs Gurgel. And that was sweet.

Josh Montoya vs Ed West- For some reason I'm looking forward to this fight. Another fight I can see being a lot closer than their records indicate. "Wild" West FTW.

Josh Appelt vs Josh Lanier- Th only thing that surprises me about this fight is Lanier is 212lbs. What's wrong with LHW. I never see HW that weight 212lbs these days.


All in all can't wait for Thursday night Bellator.

im looking forward to these fights as well, especially Vegh/M'Pumbu. Bjorn Rebney told me on Twitter that if the fight ends in 40-50 seconds in the 1st round, i get a free hoodie. Everyone root for the quick KO!!!!!!

Especially in Bellator. There are so many finishes.

You should see if you could switch it to the Brooks vs Awad fight. Awad's average fight time in his last 5 fights is like 30 seconds are something bizarre like that.

But anyways good lucj P_F

Even though Brooks should win as a heavy favorite.

well this is why i picked it:

Bjorn Rebney tweeted how long we thought the Vegh/M'Pumbu fight would last.

I tweeted 42 seconds, after 35 seconds of feeling each other out.

he replied, that it was super specific & if it ended in 40-50 seconds, he'd send me a hoodie.

So i'm rooting for a hoodie!!!!!

also, I saw Vegh KO Wiuff in 25 seconds live in Tunica, so im hoping if he's going to KO M'Pumbu, he takes his time this time

I picked Lesnar/Carwin down to the second, so anything is possible. That would be pretty sweet if it came true.

Should be another great event.
I expect Rickels to have his hands full in the rematch!!
Vegh should Ko him just under 2 min mark.

Enjoy boys!
