Horrible timing is having Akihiro Gono, Ben Saunders, and Cosmo Alexandre all fighting two hours away from your house and not being there to see it. However, I suppose I have a good reason. I’m on vacation in sunny Puerto Rico!!!!
Well, that’s not true. Actually, I’ve been moving, and have no internet access, so I’ve put together an abbreviated version of my Bellator 67 breakdown, sent to the site via carrier pigeon.
Nathan Gunn defeats Dom O’Grady via TKO Round 2
Nordine Taleb defeats Matt MacGrath via Unanimous Decision
Cosmo Alexander defeats Lorawnt-T Nelson via TKO Round 1
David “Bo” Harris defeats Nick Kirk via Unanimous Decision
Matt Veal defeats Will Romero via Unanimous Decision
Damian Grabowski (15-1) vs. Dave Huckaba (17-4)
Grabowski is once beaten, and he’ll remain so when he takes out Huckaba.
Winner – Damian Grabowski defeats Dave Huckaba via Submission Round 1
Ryan Ford (17-4) vs. Luis Santos (50-7-1)
This is a great fight. I like Ford quite a bit, but, I just don’t seem him coming through here.
Winner – Luis Santos defeats Ryan Ford via Unanimous Decision
Ben Saunders (13-4-2) vs. Bryan Baker (17-3)
Both of these men had a rough go of things in the quarterfinals, so this fight might just absolutely suck. I’m optimistic though, a good fight, with Saunders walking away with the win.
Winner – Ben Saunders defeats Bryan Baker via TKO Round 3
Michael Chandler (9-0) vs. Akihiro Gono (32-17-7)
Gono has seen it all in the cage, but Chandler is just a new breed of fighter and he should absolutely run through Gono.
Winner – Michael Chandler defeats Akihiro Gono via TKO Round 2
Not much of a breakdown this week, but I’m confident that you’re all badass MMA fans, and all you care about are awesome fights. As always, Bellator airs live on Spike.com at 7:00 PM EST with some preliminary bouts with the main card going live at 8:00 on MTV 2, TheScore.com in Canada, or on Spike.com.
Enjoy the fights!
