    It's Mo vs Vassell and Davis vs Newton. Any other combo wouldn't make sense.

    Good fights. Davis v. Newton will probably be a boring Davis decision though.

    Pretty much, Mo vs Davis is the final they want though I dont see how that is anything but a terrible fight.

    Personally I would prefer Davis vs Mo and Vassell vs Newton in the first round.

    Tourneys favor finishes and in a 2 round fight Davis will be hard pressed to figure our Newton. Everyone always underrates Newton but I think it might be a case of them overrating Davis now. Not saying Davis can't win, he's a very talented fighter but the odds are in Newtons favor

    Possibly, but I could see Newton making it exciting, but yeah Davis will likely turn it into a slow paced wrestling match.

    yeah, no other option makes any sense.

    King Mo can't fight Newton again and ideally I think Bellator wants a King Mo/Davis final. So those will be the brackets.

    Newton blows my mind. He always looks terrible, and like he's winning at the same time. Either that or he looks like he's losing and gets a spinning back fist KO.

    I've never thought he looked terrible but I agree that he is good at making a comeback. I feel like if he was in the UFC the past 5 years he would be a huge fan favorite.
