Steve Carl vs Dan Hornbuckle
Hornbuckle has shown in DREAM and in Bellator that he is a level above the rest. I like Hornbuckle here.
Diego Saraiva v Joe Soto
Not familiar with Saraiva other than him being an underdog in this fight. Joe Soto once again has shown to be an absolute handful for anyone he has faced in the smaller shows.
Ryan Thomas v Ben Askren
The rematch of the fight where Askren had Thomas in a D’arce choke, the referee stopped the fight without Thomas tapping. Immediately protesting, Thomas, got a chance at a rematch due to another fighter being injured.
I think this fight is probably going to go the same way. Askren is a top level collegiate wrestler and it doesn’t seem Ryan Thomas has an answer for the takedowns, despite being a UFC veteran and an excellent fighter in his own right.
I think this one goes the same way. Askren to win.
