I haven't followed Bellator in a while. Are any of those fights for a title?

Bellaturd*

Amir Albazi vs. Jamie Powell is for the television title
Chase Morton vs. Jeremy Petley is for the intercontinental title
Dan Vinni vs. Alex Lohore is for the phillipseymourhoffman title
Marcin Prostko vs. Michael Shipman is for the ralph waldo emerson memorial title.

:tup:

Spoiler:
none of them are for a title. Lima is the welterweight champ currently and Phil Davis is the lightheavyweight champ

:pointup: I agree man. I like both guys in a lot of these match ups. JDS and Stipe beat the shit out of each other before and it could have went either way. They might do it again. I also have always liked Jr. Good luck buddy.

agreed. It feels weird rooting against JDS but I don't see him beating Stipe. I won't be too upset to be wrong, though. Good luck to you as well, milord ;) :beer:

Safe bet? He already lost to JDS once and it wasn't like it could have gone either way. JDS clearly won that fight. I'm not talking shit on your pick I just want to see if you can talk me out of picking Junior in B league. :beer:
