Sergio Pettis vs Kyoji Horiguchi

Sergio Pettis left the UFC after his win, and he hasn’t stopped appreciating the “W” since making his Bellator debut in January 2020, winning three in a row including the Bantamweight title at Bellator 258 with a win. victory over Juan Archuleta. But in his first title defense, “The Phenom” will have a tough test as he takes on division champion Kyoji Horiguchi. The current RIZIN 135-weight champion never had to secure the strap due to an ACL tear, forcing him to vacate it. That’s why he feels he is still the true champion of the weight class. Horiguchi has long been known as one of the top Bantamweights on the planet, having enjoyed a successful UFC bout before leaving the promotion category with a three-fight winning streak. In the past six years, Kyoji has only lost twice, once to Demetrious Johnson and then to Kai Asukara, a loss he avenged shortly after. While Pettis has become his own, Horiguchi would be too much for him. I wasn’t expecting a boom but Kyoji is a little more experienced and a little better everywhere. I expected “The Phenom” to enter a fight, but in the end Horiguchi would regain the belt he never lost in a battle that proved to be a reciprocal battle.

Final prediction: Horiguchi passed unanimous decision

Emmanuel Sanchez vs Jeremy Kennedy

A two-time Featherweight title contender, Emmanuel Sanchez has fallen on hard times later this year. Indeed, Sanchez has dropped two consecutive goals to former titleholder Patricio Freire and rising contender Mads Burnell. This is the first time he has dropped to second place in a row in his entire career, but losing three games in a row could harm his title aspirations. Currently ranked 4th, Sanchez will find a way to return to the race before Kennedy, the 9th-ranked boxer in the weight division is also in dire need of a win. Kennedy was about to lose to Adam Borics, winning three of his match. The former UFC vet might make some noise and shake the division with his win over Sanchez, but I don’t see that happening tonight. Sanchez has great attacking and grappling abilities, and while Kennedy is no slouch in either division, Sanchez is just marginally better in every area.

Final prediction: Sanchez passed the application in the second round

Johnny Eblen compare to Collin Huckbody

Johnny Eblen quietly rose to middleweight, winning his first five fights under the Bellator flag to improve his record to 9-0, earning him a 5th place in the process. Of his five wins, Eblen finished off his enemies in the first round, so he knew how to finish the job as quickly as it started. While I wouldn’t say this fight was a turn-around for Eblen, it’s not an ideal scenario for Huckbody. No disrespect to him, but getting your Bellator to debut against the 5th ranked and undefeated fighter is not the easiest task. Not to say Huckbody was unskilled – he has a 10-3 record – but Eblen hit the ball a bit more for his game. especially when it comes to the standup department. On the other hand, this is a great opportunity for Huckbody to get noticed and make a big splash by knocking out a Top 5 competitor in his promotional debut.

Final Prediction: Champion through the first knockout

Josh Hill compare to Jared Scoggins

7th in Bantamweight, Josh Hill will be looking to get back on track after losing Raufeon Stots at Bellator 258 this past summer. Before losing the match, Hill was on a 5-match winning streak. He’ll be up against Jared Scoggins, who will make his Bellator debut. “Psycho” won 5 games in a row and 10/11 wins overall. However, he wasn’t on track with his Bellator career, after he lost 4 pounds. As a result, the fight will be at 140 pounds and Hill will receive a percentage of his fight wallet. If Hill can stop Scoggins’ heated run, he could move up a spot or two in the standings. As for Hill, he was able to make up for his scale failure by putting in a good performance and upending 7th place bantamweight in the promotion. I expect this fight to be a tight one and to go far. Ultimately, Hill’s wrestling will prove to be the difference-maker, returning him to the winner’s circle.

Final prediction: Hill adopts unanimous decision
