£ 170: Douglas Lima vs. Michael Page

Since knocking out Michael Page two years ago (See it here), Douglas Lima struggled in the Verator cage. Immediately after his fierce performance on “MVP,” he continued to win welterweight titles, but the fun stopped in a hurry. Lima decided to climb to the middle weight and become the champion, and was dominated by Division King Gegard Mousasi. In his comeback battle, he cleared Yaroslav Amosov his welterweight title. Now, “The Phenom” tries to recreate his performance against the currently hot-burning “Venom”, losing two times in a row and then trying to get back on track. After suffering his first and only defeat in Lima’s hands, Page continued to record four or five consecutive victories by knockout. In other words, he’s firing on all cylinders, so it’s much harder for Lima to go up 2-0 against him. And I haven’t seen it happening. The “MVP” is on track and his momentum is brought to this fight against a man who is likely to be lacking in confidence at this time. Sure, Lima won the page in his back pocket, but he didn’t look great in his last two fights, and so much to stare at the barrel of three consecutive losses. Just apply the pressure of. This time Page seems to be a little more careful. Some of the flashy Shenanigans that made him a fan favorite are still promising, but the page is already tasting the power of Lima, so it’s a little more calculated. But if he finds his groove, I think he will do enough to nod to the judges’ scorecards.

Forecast: Unanimous decision page

145 pounds: Ria McCourt vs. Jessica Volga

Leah McCourt may have only six fights in his MMA career, but she’s already impressed with promotions, fans, and opponents. After losing his professional debut in 2017, “The Curse” has won five in a row, three of which are under the Bellator flag. In fact, Berator was so highly regarded that she was awarded a headlining mission in her second fight against her promotion at Berator 240. McCourt, ranked fifth at £ 145, cuts the championship line. Victory against Volga is definitely a step in the right direction. Volga is only 3-3 in the Pro Combat Carrier to date and only 1-1 with Verator. “The Black Widow” is a huge loss to Talita Nogueira on the Bellator 256. By the way, why not make a reservation for Nogueira instead? Nogiera is ranked 9th, but Volga isn’t even close to the top 10. With my money, it’s a battle to take place. Nonetheless, McCourt is looking for six consecutive wins here, while Volga wants to ruin her enemy’s plans to move her own momentum, but I’m getting it happening. I haven’t seen you.

Final Prediction: McCourt by unanimous decision

145 lbs: Robert Whiteford versus. Andrew Fisher

Robert Whiteford made a splash with his Berator MMA debut by knocking out Sam Sicilian in 2019 … and he hasn’t been contacted since. Now, after nearly two years as a bystander, “The Hammer” is back and is aiming for five consecutive victories against Andrew Fisher, who has won four consecutive victories. Whiteford has participated in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) five times and has a few records, so their resume has about the same amount of professional combat as a similar combat experience. Since leaving the UFC, Whiteford has been undefeated (4-0) and could be in the top 10 if he could gain momentum. He will definitely resist Fisher, as he has accumulated a record 6-1 since 2015, which is a model of consistency. This is Tosap to me, but I see judo specialist Whiteford doing enough to beat Fisher, who loves stand-up battles. Fisher has a chance to punch, but I think Whiteford’s power makes a difference.

Final Prediction: Whiteford with Knockout in Round 2

£ 155: Yves Randu versus. Tim Wild

Yves Randu rushed into the Berator MMA scene with Terry Brager’s spectacular Flying Knee Knockout at Berator 248 in October 2020, returning him back after winning four straight wins under the RIZIN banner. .. Randu has been hot and cold throughout his career, continuing to stretch him going to the skid before he bounces off with a great streak. He hopes to become the flagship of Berator’s lightweight division, where sharks are swarming little by little for shots in the Patrício Freire title. Landu will take over Tim Wilde, who has been 1-1 in his career at Bellator. Wild is losing to Charlie Really, almost two years ago. “The Experiment” has some sounding experience and skill, but Landu covers him in making better, more balanced attacks. This is my sleeper pick at night to steal the show and you won’t be surprised to see the stunning finish.

Final Prediction: Landu by Round 2 TKO

205 lbs: Luke Trainer versus. Yannick Bahti

Luke Trainer issued a statement highlighted in the first round of knocking out Alex Otour at Belator Milano in September 2020. A year after the bystander, “Gent” returns to face Yannick Bahti, who is in desperate need of victory. Bahti suffered a TKO defeat in the first round against Melvin Manhoef two years ago. Going back a little further, “Black Mamba” has lost four of the last five battles since 2017. It would be great to beat a trainer who started his professional MMA career 4-0 undefeated for just two years. His cap and huge self-confidence booster. I haven’t seen it happening because Bahti hasn’t shown exactly anything in the last few years to convince me that he has what it takes to upset a 25 year old kid. Hmm. Light heavyweights may win new champions by the end of the year after the Grand Prix. The trainer’s victory here could be what he needed to get into the top 10 and insert himself as a new candidate for the town. The remaining 205 pounds of monsters to worry about.

Final Forecast: Trainer by Submission of Round 3
