I'm guessing because if his striking prowess and not his "bottom-bitch" ground game.

I am going back and forth on this one. I think Daley does have a pretty solid chance to win.

I potentially see Macdonald going into the cage with a point to prove with his striking. At some point I think that allows Daley to catch him, resulting on Rory being on his back foot the rest of the fight

With that said Rory probably will win. I just think Daley has a better shot than most are giving him. I picked him in Phil's prediction thread because of this but also because I figured most others would be picking Macdonald. It was more a strategic prediction.

The fights are in jolly ol England

Spike blocked them airing the fights live to an English only market.

I do not know how delayed the airing of the fights is though in regards to when they actually occur.

Please do not shout at me

Lmao.

usually on betting sites they have the real start times for each fight right above the fight lines. But right now on the one I use, no bellator fights are popping up.

I really hope I don't see the outcome before the fight starts.

I'll be devastated
