  • Dugulubgov's Style -Striking

  • Prediction -Cavalcante by submission

Welterweight - Josh "The People's Warrior" Burkman" vs Aaron "A-Train" Simpson
  • Burkman's Style - American Whu Hit U
  • Simpson's Style - Wrestling
  • Prediction - Burkman by Hitting U (You being Aaron Simpson. Thanks for reading this blog, Aaron!)
  • Thoughts - After his fight against Gerald Harris, I want to see Burkman survive longer and longer submission attempts. Can he just get stuck in a triangle for three rounds straight?

Middleweight - Dave Branch vs Paulo "Reward Hunter" Filho
  • Branch's Style - BJJ
  • Filho's Style - BJJ, drugs
  • Prediction - Filho by submission (FILHO IS BACK, BABY!)
  • Thoughts - My prediction is going to look hilarious when Filho doesn't even make it to the arena.

Bantamweight - Marlon Moraes vs Tyson Nam
  • Moraes's Style - Freestyle
  • Nam's Style - Striking
  • Prediction - Nam by KO
  • Thoughts - Reminder that Nam is putting his imaginary, lineal Bellator bantamweight title on the line in this fight.

Heavyweight - Andrei "Pitbull" Arlovski vs Anthony "Rumble" Johnson
  • Arlovski's Style - Boxing, sambo
  • Johnson's Style - Boxing, wrestling
  • Prediction - Johnson by KO
  • Thoughts - It's been too long since a heavyweight fighter from a former Soviet bloc country has fought a welterweight. This should be extra ridiculous since Johnson is a Blackzilian, but even with that curse (Though not in WSoF!), I think Arlovski's chin is too fragmented at this point to withstand some Rumble-Bombs.
