Bellator 283 Main Event: Douglas Lima vs. Jason Jackson Prediction:
Douglas Lima is on a devastating three-fight losing streak. Now, the hard-hitting Brazilian will give his best to get back on track against Jackson, who has won five times consecutively. Jackson may have the edge in power but Lima can crack, too, and has a Brazilian jiu-jitsu advantage. An interesting fact is, Jackson has a knockout win over Lima’s brother Dhiego Lima, so “The Phenom” has added motivation for the win.
Final prediction: Lima via unanimous decision
Co-Main Event: Sidney Outlaw vs. Tofiq Musayev Prediction:
Prior to the loss to Roberto de Souza, Tofiq Musayev was on a wildly 14-fight win streak, making him one of the best Lightweights in the world. His pace and output with a tendency to swarm his opponents makes him dangerous. Outlaw might be a bit quicker, but Musayev’s overall toolbox is richer.
Final Prediction: Musayev via unanimous decision
Bellator 283 Main Cards Prediction:
Main Cards (1): Usman Nurmagomedov vs. Chris Gonzalez
As a traditional Greco-Roman wrestler, Gonzalez is tough to deal with in the 155-pound weight class. This is an even matchup though Nurmagomedov gets the edge when it comes to Brazilian jiu-jitsu. This will all come down to who can impose their wrestling skills. And it makes the bout tight. A win for either man will do wonders for their position in the 155-pound division.
Final prediction: Nurmagomedov via split-decision
Main Cards (2): Lorenz Larkin vs. Mukhamed Berkhamov
Lorenz Larkin is currently ranked at No. 6 in the Middleweight division but this fight will take place in the Welterweight division so it won’t do much for his ranking at 185 pounds. Berkhamov has a big opportunity to up his cred Stateside after completing the majority of his career in Russia.
Larkin will try to keep the fight standing because he is yet to score a submission win in his 13-year career. That’s because he has relied heavily on his hands to get the job done for him, which is what he will need to do against Berkhamov.
Final prediction: Berkhamov via third-round submission
Main Cards (3): Davion Franklin vs. Marcelo Golm
In Heavyweight action, Davion Franklin and Marcelo Golm will kick things off on the main card. Franklin has the knockout power advantage, though Golm isn’t a novice when it comes to trading bombs because he has won seven KO/TKO times in his career.
Final Prediction: Franklin via first-round TKO
