Lightweight – Joaqim “Netto BJJ” Silva vs Nazareno “El Tigre” Malegarie

Jessica: I was going to laugh at Malegarie at being 30-3 overall, but 1-3 in Bellator. Then I saw his losses were to Daniel Straus, Marlon Sandro, and Rad “As Heck” Martinez. Those are all top flight dudes, so I can’t be super mad at that. I’m taking Nazareno to get a third round submission here.

Burnsy: I can’t really start my picks by denying a guy named El Tigre. That’s up there with El Diablo in terms of nicknames that are always generally awesome. Unless, of course, the dude’s a Grand Wizard or serial killer. And I’ll be devastated if we find out someday that Hitler had his people call him El Gato or something cool like that. Where was I? Oh yeah, El Tigre gets my Rad Nickname Pick of the Week.

Vince: Silva is 7-0 with all first-round stoppages, but unfortunately all but two of his opponents have losing records, so I don’t know how much that record actually means. That said, a lot of El Tigre’s opponents haven’t been that impressive either. I suppose I’ll give El Tigre the edge based on his massive experience advantage (25 fights to seven).

Goldy: Oh So Some F*ckhead From A Bellator Tournament Thinks He Can Endear Himself To Me Just Because He Was On A Season Of TUF Brazil Think Again Sh*td*ck WINNER: SILVA

Middleweight – Joe “Diesel” Riggs vs Ron “Choir Boy” Stallings

Jessica: Poor Joe Riggs. I don’t really have a prediction for this fight, other than feeling really sorry for Riggs. I guess I’ll compound the sadness and say that Stallings TKOs Riggs in the first.
