    He is SBG so I doubt it. Why isnt Johns fighting someone in the fringe top 10, like Mattos or Caldwell?

    Fuck knows, Bellator can be weird sometimes, they outbid the UFC for Brett, so he aint cheap.

    They outbid the UFC for Johns so he could fight Sabatello and Kakharov. Also, they are paying Shabliy top dollar so he can fight Alfie Davies and Bobby King, go figure

    Like that fight. Good test for Lugo. Moore isn't elite but he's a solid international class guy who's game and has some slick boxing.

    Great fight! Matchmaking seems to be improving leaps and bounds for Bellator.

    Moose is better on the feet but has been outwrestled before. Moose is not bad with his subs though. I think Moose can weather a storm early. Avoid damage on the ground and catch Vanderford in the 4th with some big shots. Looking forward to this.

    I'm sure Bellator just pick fighters at random on Tapology sometimes.

    Marian Dimitrov is decent, I wouldn't be surprised to see him beat Fabian. He's got monstrous power. Luca Poclit had some hype behind his name way back but then injuries sidelined him.

    Balkans/Lower Central Europe are an underrepresented area. Nice to see them pick up some guys from there, sometimes you gets guys like Adam Borics.

    I've not seen him, but he doesn't seem to have fought anyone of note on his record.

    He's from the same group of guys like Kaloyan Kolev (who was on Contender Series last year), Georgi Valentinov, Plamen Penchev, Valentin Benishev who all have super padded records. Whether they are decent or not, we shall see.

    That Kolev guy looked pretty shit, so hopefully better than him.

    Tony Hulk Johnson trains with them too... strangely enough.

    is this event happening, though? Covid might derail this event.

    Us and Ireland are pretty liberal with covid rules so it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

    Bulgarian Top Team is only a management company. No idea why Tapology lists them as a gym

    Moose needs to retire at 50 wins

    IDK about Ireland but with the exception of Florida and maybe Texas the US is most definitely not liberal with covid rules.

    That doesn't sound promising then, Kolev and Valentinov are quite atrocious - don't know about the other two.
