  • Sergio Pettis  vs Kyoji Horiguchi ( Bantamweight)

Starting with the main event of the night, we have the Bellator Bantamweight World Championship up for grabs. Former champion, Horiguchi takes on current champion Pettis. Sergio (21-5), comes in as the underdog despite being the champion. However, many felt that Pettis’ path to becoming champion was too easy. On the other hand, due to COVID 19 complications, Kyoji (29-3) will be returning to Bellator instead of RIZIN and now he has the chance to reclaim what was once his. According to the bookies, the Japanese fighter has a very good chance too.

Prediction: Kyoji Horiguchi to win via KO/TKO or Decision. 

  • Emmanuel Sanchez vs Jeremy Kennedy (Featherweight)

With both fighters looking to get back on the win column, this will be an interesting co-main event. Although on a 2 fight skid, Emmanuel Sanchez (20-6) is the betting favorite. On the other hand, Kennedy (16-3) will be making only his third Bellator appearance to date. As such, many will feel that the experience and knowledge of Sanchez can win him the fight. Whilst, it’s not much, you cannot count out Kennedy just yet. After all, this is the fight business and here, anything can happen. 

Prediction: Emmanuel Sanchez to win via Submission or Decision. 

  • Johnny Eblen vs Collin Huckbody ( Middleweight)

Up next we have Johnny Eblen (9-0) as a huge favorite over Collin Huckbody (9-3). Whilst both fighters are relatively new to the game, it has to be said that Eblen has experience against higher-level opposition. In fact, this will be Collin’s first fight in Bellator and the start of a new journey. That said, there is no doubt that the undefeated Eblen takes this one. 

Prediction: Jonny Eblen by KO/TKO or Decision. 

  • Jay Jay Wilson vs Alfie Davis (Lightweight)

Next up, we have the undefeated Jay Jay Wilson (8-0) against Alfie Davis (14-4). Whilst it is very easy to root for Wilson, we must remember that Davis only narrowly lost his last fight, after a good streak. As such, this will be a very interesting fight with two very promising fighters. Looking at both fighters’ resumes, we can definitely expect a finish. Look out for this one!

Predictions: Jay Jay Wilson to win via KO/TKO or Submission.
