This one is a great Main Event, while the 155 title is always up for strange things, Xavier Merlin tonight could become the No. 1 Challenger with a win, while loosing a title fight at RISE, he had a great Decision win in his SyFi debut. Justin Sane is pretty euqal on the ground and wrestling, but his stand up is non existent, he is under new management, but his lack of morale may be a problem.
Prediction: Decision win for Merlin
185 Aulis Homelius vs. Kalmin Maltsuri
Homelius brings wonderful wrestling and a 2-1 record at SYFI, Maltsuri makes his Org debut and is a Wonderful Muay Thai Artist with some wrestling background, but has several Morale and Conditioning problems, he lost his last two fights at Duel.
Prediction: Homelius by Decision
145 #3 Half Life vs. #4 Marcos Santana
A big fight for both, 2-1 in SyFi Half Life looks to keep his two fight win streak in tact, while Santana is unbeaten, having 3 wins at Syfi. Both being brown Belts and having BJJ as their Main Game, for 19yo Santana this fight may come a little early, He has yet to experience a 2nd round, while Half Life is known for longer battles.
Prediction: Half Life by Submission in Round 3.
155 #9 Nazim Bardakci vs. Derek Johnson
Bardakci is 2-1 in SyFI Fights, having only lost to Keon Fazeli, who since then couldn‘t win another fight. Johnson is a Wonderful Boxer, who‘s 1-1 at SyFi. But forget all this as the key to the fight, Johnson looks gased already, having had trouble to make the weigh in.
Prediction: Bardakci by Submission Rd. 1
265 CJ Morrison vs. #9 Angel Childress
Morrison with a new Management looks to get back on track, while Childress is 2-0 at SyFi, if Childress can get Morrison on the ground it will be over quick, and „The Mauler“ is a pure Kick Boxer, he needs to pray for a Quick Flash KO.
Prediction: Childress by Submission Rd. 1
155 Fazeli vs. Joints
This is a Re-Match from an earlier draw, I hope the Boo-Birds stay in this time, not all is lost now, it is very likely, they could go the distance again, as both are ground specialists, and 3 out of Fazelis 6 fights have gone the distance.
Prediction: One will fall asleep
155 Lermontov vs. Ali
Not really lots of challenge, Lermontov dominates Ali everywhere except Boxing, where they are even, look for Lermontov to start a win streak here.
Prediction: Lermontov by TKO, KO and Submission
135 #3 Nick Holey vs. Dax Baxter
A big one hidden down the card, as despite being No. 3 ranked and having won 3 in a row respect is something Holey has not gotten a lot of, Baxter is in top shape and coming off a win, and likely will be Holeys biggest test so far, Holey is a minimum Weight, so thats never a challenge, but my spotters said he looks a bit out of shape
Prediction: Class in BJJ wins, Holey by Submission Round 1
265 Imbert vs. Allu
A Superb Boxer Imbert is dominated everywhere else by Allu, who makes his SyFi debut, Allu showed his class in his single QFC, while Imbert showed mixed results in SYFI.
Prediction: Depending on the tactic Allu will choose, either a Submission in Round 1, or a banging Fight, winner: Allu
145 Zieske vs. Monahan
Zieske is making his SyFi debut, and is one to watch, he could well be a challenger soon, while Monahan was outclassed in his first SyFi fight vs. Santana
Prediction: Zieske by BIG KO Round 1
