John Dodson vs Petr Yan Dodson has made his trend of losing fights based off of not enough volume and aggression. This fight falls on how much volume and pressure he puts on Yan himself. If he allows Yan to dictate the pace, walk him down, and outland him in volume and significant strikes then…

Bellator 215 isn’t the most stacked card in the world, but if you’re a degenerate like me then you’ll still be tuning in with a view to earn some cash. The main event is a heavyweight clash between two fighters that have been around the block: Sergei Kharitonov and Matt Mitrione. At 38 and 40-years-of-age…

In an exciting welterweight clash between two British strikers with contrasting styles, Michael Page and Paul Daley look to settle a longstanding feud. As exciting as this matchup is, I can’t understand why it’s taking place in Connecticut – couldn’t they find an arena in London? As a UK fight fan I don’t mind tuning…

Robert Whittaker (c) vs Kelvin Gastelum This is a pretty great fight for the middleweight championship this weekend in Australia. While I outright favor Whittaker to successfully defend his title, it’ll probably be a bit of a back-n-forth fight with Gastelum having his own little moments too. Gastelum has good hands and speed behind them,…

On a fight card with plenty of betting opportunities, I’m intrigued by this bantamweight showdown between two surging prospects: Said Nurmagomedov vs. Ricardo Ramos. Said Nurmagomedov Unlike his legendary cousin, Said Nurmagomedov is not a smothering top control wrestler (although he’s certainly capable of landing takedowns). Instead, he’s more of a measured kickboxer, picking his…

Corey Anderson vs Ilir Latifi In what should be a great, back-n-forth light heavyweight fight I think Corey Anderson has all the edges to win this fight.
