Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for Bellator 49. This event will air Saturday via MTV2. The evening’s action will be headlines by Dan Hornbuckle taking on Luis “Sapo” Santos as they attempt to make the season’s 170 lbs. tourney. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
As lead writer here, I do my best to make quality peeks into the future. That being said, anything can (and does) happen in mixed martial arts. With an overall 468-298 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from New Jersey.
*(winners are in bold)
Dan Hornbuckle vs. Luis Santos: Hornbuckle by submission
Chris Cisneros vs. Ben Saunders: Saunders by TKO
Chris Lozano vs. Brent Weedman: Lozano by TKO
Steve Carl vs. Douglas Lima: Lima via decision
