Michael Page (16-1) vs Shinsho Anzai (11-3)

  • Michael Page (-810)
  • Shinsho Anzai (+470)

Michael Page is the biggest betting favorite of the show. Nicknamed “MVP,” Page is riding a two fight win streak after losing in the welterweight tournament to the eventual champ Douglas Lima. Page has scored consecutive 1st round knockouts in his last two fights.

Page will be fighting on a quick turnaround from his last contest which came on November 23rd. This will be Page’s fifth fight of 2019, which saw him rise to the top of the division before suffering his first career loss.

Anzai has gone 3-1 in his last four fights which saw him compete in the UFC and Deep. His time inside the octagon produced a 2-2 overall record. Anzai is also a former Pancrase middleweight champion who’s coming down to the catchweight of 173 pounds.

Anzai isn’t an elite welterweight, but he’s certainly a step up from the last two lumps that MVP has fought. It seems as if Bellator went out of their way to protect Page after his loss to Lima. I can see one fight to get back on track, but two in a row was too much.

Anzai will provide Page with a decent challenge, but let’s not pretend this is going to even be as close as the Paul Daley fight. Page will have an eight inch height and nine inch reach advantage over Anzai. Additionally, this stylistic matchup suits Page because it should end up as a striking contest.

I expect Anzai to show his toughness by taking a punishment, but Page will eventually get the KO/TKO. Most likely, Page finishes this fight in the 2nd round. Hopefully, 2020 will see MVP in a much more meaningful fight and against a top ranked welterweight.

Goiti Yamauchi (24-4) vs Daron Cruickshank (22-12, 1 NC)

  • Goiti Yamauchi (-335)
  • Daron Cruickshank (+245)

Daron Cruickshank is making his Bellator debut this weekend after spending the last three years in Rizin FF. Prior to that, he was with the UFC for several years racking up 13 fights inside the octagon. Unfortunately, he finished his time in the UFC with a record of 6-6 with 1 NC and the two sides parted ways.

Cruickshank has lost two straight fights over the last year, but does have some striking skills and power. 14 of his 22 pro wins have come via TKO/KO.

Goiti Yamauchi has been with Bellator for over six years and has gone 10-3 with the promotion. 19 of his 24 pro wins have come via submission. Seven of his 10 Bellator wins have come via submission as well. He’s stopped 20 of 24 opponents, but has never been stopped himself. All four losses have come via decision.

Yamauchi’s fighting style has drawn some criticism from fans, pundits and his opponent this weekend. However, Goiti points out his finishing rate and other reasons why he’s not a ‘boring’ fighter:

“You call me boring fighter, but the rate of finish in my career is probably more than 90 percent. Not in just professional, but in [my] amateur [and] jiu-jitsu career. So, this [doesn’t] make sense. I like my style. I like my personality. I think it’s just a matter of time to be recognized because of it. “

I find it amusing that Cruickshank finds Yamauchi to be boring. In reality, Goiti is far from boring. He’s become one of the top lightweights in the promotion going 5-1 since moving to the division. His lone loss was via decision to the former champ Michael Chandler. And, Yamauchi took that fight on short notice.

Goiti has the most submission wins in Bellator history and he will be fighting in front of his home country. Cruickshank has seven submission losses on his resume and I believe this weekend will be number eight.

Look for Yamauchi to navigate Cruickshank’s striking and take this fight to the mat where he will eventually lock in a submission hold and get the victory.

Ilara Joanne (9-4) vs Kana Watanabe (8-0-1)

  • Ilara Joanne (NA)
  • Kana Watanabe (NA)

The women will also get attention this weekend as two flyweight contenders look to capture a big victory in Japan.

Ilara Joanne made her Bellator debut two months ago and won via 2nd round submission over Rawlings. It was a solid win in her first fight with the promotion. She’s on a three fight win streak that has seen her compete in three different promotions.

Seven of her nine pro wins have come via stoppage. Joanne believes she will get her 10th pro win via stoppage over Watanabe this weekend:

“Best camp for this fight I could have. I train on the best team in the world and I look forward to another great victory in the organization. I am very excited, I want to give a show to the Japanese audience. I know Watanabe is a great “But I am a more experienced athlete and have faced tougher opponents than her. I expect a win before the three rounds, and that triumph will open doors for a title fight. I am ready, just waiting for the opportunity.”

Kana Watanabe is making her Bellator debut. She last fought two months ago in Deep and won via 1st round submission. Five of her eight pro wins have come via stoppage. She’s competed as a professional for two years now.

After looking at some of Watanabe’s fights and comparing her to Joanne, I have to go with Ilara in this contest. She looks like the better all-around fighter and has certainly taken on tougher competition in her career than Watanabe has.

I see this fight ending on the mat as both women seem to prefer the ground game rather than standing and striking. I’m taking Joanne to hand Watanabe her first pro loss and do so via third round submission.

Lorenz Larkin (21-7, 1 NC) vs Keita Nakamura (36-10-2, 1 NC)

  • Lorenz Larkin (-530)
  • Keita Nakamura (+350)

Nakamura is making his Bellator debut this weekend in his home country of Japan. Keita last fought in October for Rizin FF where he won via 1st round TKO. Prior to Rizin, he was with the UFC for four years where he went 4-4 during that span.

However, that was Keita’s second stint with the promotion. Nakamura went 0-3 in his first run with the UFC to have an overall record of 4-7 inside the octagon. He did compete against top-notch competition in the UFC, but is better suited in other promotions.

Nicknamed “K-Taro,” Nakamura has scored stoppages in 24 of his 35 pro wins. 16 of those victories have come via submission. He’s 11-8-2 when going the distance. It’s been eight years since Nakamura has suffered a stoppage defeat.

Larkin last fought in October and defeated former welterweight champion Andrey Koreshkov via split decision. It was his third straight victory in Bellator with all three coming via decisions. Prior to that, he lost his first two fights back with the promotion in 2017.

Larkin was undefeated and racked up a nice resume with Strikeforce before heading to the UFC. Inside the octagon, he went 5-5 but finished his UFC tenure on a two fight win streak that saw him defeat Neil Magny via TKO and Jorge Masvidal split decision.

11 of Larkin’s 21 pro wins have come via TKO/KO. When going the distance, he’s 10-5 overall. With a win this weekend, Larkin could take a big step up into title contention. He’s certainly on track to get a rematch against Lima who defeated him via unanimous decision in June 2017.

For this fight, I see it going the distance. Larkin has a strong takedown defense which will nullify Nakamura’s solid grappling skills. However, Keita has a tough chin and is very durable which means he should be able to survive the striking contest.

I’m taking Larkin to win his 4th fight in a row and do so via unanimous decision. He will land a larger volume of strikes and successfully defend the takedowns, which will make it hard for Nakamura to win any rounds.

Bellator 237 Bet: Lorenz Larkin (-530)

Michael Chandler (19-5) vs Sidney Outlaw (14-3)

  • Michael Chandler (-430)
  • Sidney Outlaw (+310)

Originally, this fight was supposed to be a rematch between Benson Henderson and Michael Chandler. Unfortunately, Henderson withdrew from the fight due to injury. Former Ring of Combat champion Sidney Outlaw replaces Henderson on less than a month’s notice.

Outlaw is on a nine fight win streak including wins in ROC, Titan FC, DWTNCS, CFFC and other promotions. He made his Bellator debut on November 15th and defeated Roger Huerta via unanimous decision.

Eight of his 14 pro wins have come via stoppage with seven via submission. Three of his last four victories have come via submission.

— Michael Chandler (@MikeChandlerMMA) December 23, 2019

Despite the quick turnaround, Outlaw is very confident in his chances and respectful of his opponent:

“He’s clearly one of the best, I’m going to go in there and test myself… I’m going to go in there and do what I normally do, which is my best. With Bellator, I’m going to have to properly reintroduce myself, because my last performance wasn’t the best. I’m going to have to go in there a little different.”

Chandler comes into this contest having lost his last fight to Patricio Freire in May. Freire was already the featherweight champion for Bellator and now holds two belts in two different divisions. As for Chandler, he’s looking to bounce back with a big win on Saturday in Japan.

Chandler will also look to get back to the front of the line and once again challenge for the lightweight belt. With a big win over Outlaw, Chandler will be right back in the discussion as the top challenger and perhaps recapture the lightweight belt for the fourth time in his career.

With that said, Chandler acknowledges that Outlaw will be a tough opponent, but he’s going out there to finish him in front of the Japanese crowd:

“He’s a tough guy. He’s a big-bodied wrestler. He’s going to come forward and is going to take me down and try to take me down and control me. I’ve got to be fast when I need to be fast. I need to be strong when I need to be strong”

“The game plan is very simple and very thorough. I’m going to be exactly who I am since Day 1 and put my foot on the gas and not look back; try to put my hands on him as violently as possible for as many minutes as it takes to finish him.”

Chandler was very accurate in his assessment of what Outlaw is going to do. Nicknamed “Da Gun,” Outlaw is a big, strong competitor. Another thing working in favor of Sidney is that this bout will be contested at 160 pounds, which is five pounds more the lightweight limit.

With that said, the weight and size are about the only advantages that Outlaw will have. Chandler has a strong grappling background as he was a former Division I All-American wrestler. Additionally, he also has the advantage in striking with a more polished skillset.

Fedor Vs Sonnen Odds (2022) (2022) (2022) (1)

Although he’s coming off a TKO loss, Chandler is still an elite lightweight while Outlaw is still a rising prospect. I think in a few years, Outlaw could actually start challenging for titles as long as he stays on this trajectory. Unfortunately, he’s not good enough to beat Chandler on Saturday.

I’m taking Chandler to win via unanimous decision.

Fedor Emelianenko (38-6, 1 NC) vs Quinton Jackson (38-13)

  • Fedor Emelianenko (-170)
  • Quinton Jackson (+130)

Much was made about the opening odds for this fight as some outlets reported that Jackson was an underdog as high as +230. If that was the case then these odds have dramatically shifted in favor of “Rampage.”

At age 41, Jackson is still competing inside the cage despite many fans and pundits believing he should’ve retired long ago. Jackson hasn’t fought in 15 months when he defeated Wanderlei Silva via 2nd round TKO. It snapped a two fight losing streak.

Prior to those two losses to Lawal and Sonnen, Jackson had won five straight contests since joining Bellator in 2013. He left the UFC after losing three straight fights and no longer being able to compete with the top fighters in his weight class.

— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) December 23, 2019

Despite the talk of retirement, Jackson is very excited to fight in Japan again especially against Fedor:

“It’s going to be like old times. I really do miss fighting (in Japan), and I was telling my coach like maybe a couple months ago, like man it would be nice to finish up my career fighting in Japan again… I never dreamed of fighting Fedor because back when we were both in PRIDE, I wasn’t a heavyweight, and I’m a big guy now. I’m a heavyweight now; he’s obviously still a heavyweight.”

Jackson was a huge star in Japan when he fought for PRIDE. Not only did he have legendary fights against Silva, but he also took on other famous MMA stars in their prime like Mauricio Rua and Chuck Liddell. His personality and fighting style earned him a big contract with the UFC.

Once with the UFC, Jackson became a mainstream star and captured the UFC light heavyweight title. He eventually became an actor and movie star as his career winded down. Now, at age 41, Jackson’s best days are well behind him.

Yet, this fight still resonates with MMA fans especially in Japan as two MMA legends square off.

(Video) Jones vs Miocic pushed back until Sept 2022…

Despite not reaching the heights of success in the United States as he did overseas, Fedor is still considered one of the best heavyweights of all-time according to pundits, most fans and peers.

Fedor last competed in January and lost to Ryan Bader for the Bellator heavyweight title. He’s 2-2 in his time with Bellator, but seems to do well in these “legend fights” as he defeated Frank Mir and Chael Sonnen in 2018.

At age 43, this Fedor farewell tour is nothing more than a publicity stunt by Bellator. With that said, I actually believe he will defeat Jackson in this fight. Rampage is a lot heavier than what he used to be in his prime.

Although both men are older, Fedor still has pop in his punch. Just look at what he did to Mir and Sonnen last year. Two first round TKO/KO victories. He KO’d Mir in 48 seconds. It’s been almost six years since Jackson has won a fight in the 1st round.

This nostalgic act will get over well in Japan due to the rich history that both fighters built in the country. Nevertheless, I don’t expect this fight to be that entertaining or competitive.

I’m taking Fedor to win via TKO in the 1st round. I would be surprised if these two guys went deep into the contest. Seven of Fedor’s last eight fights have all ended in the first round and he’s 5-2 in those bouts.

Bellator 237 Final Thoughts

The main event does nothing for me other than seeing two legends return to Japan where they became stars in the sport. Once the fight starts, the nostalgia will end due to the reality that these two men are a combined 84 years old.

If you look beyond the main event, Bellator 237 has some pop to this card. I’m really intrigued with the co-main event as I want to see how Outlaw measures up to a lightweight elite in Chandler. Additionally, Larkin vs Nakamura should be a competitive contest between two tough fighters.

Yamaguchi’s fight has some intrigue as well due to how close he is to earning a title shot. The women’s flyweight fight will be competitive and MVP is always entertaining. This main card is certainly better than Bellator 235 and possibly even Bellator 236.

The prelim bout between Haruo Ochi and Jarred Brooks is going to be explosive and worth watching. These two flyweights aren’t afraid to let their hands fly and go for the knockout. I wish this was on the main card due to its potential for being the fight of the night.

As for betting opportunities, there aren’t many. The main event is the only fight with close odds. The rest of the main card has large betting favorites and underdogs that aren’t worthy of a flier.

This weekend, Bellator will conclude the semifinals of its Heavyweight Grand Prix with two exciting fights. On Friday, Matt Mitrione will take on Ryan Bader at Bellator 207. And, on Saturday, Chael Sonnen will take on Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator 208. The winners of these two fights will face each other in the finals to determine the new Bellator heavyweight champion. With these fights only a few days away, let’s take a look at the current Bellator betting odds and make some predictions:
For those looking to jump straight into the betting action on the Bellator 207 & 208, here are the top sites we recommend:

Bellator 207: Matt Mitrione vs Ryan Bader Betting Odds

On Friday, October 12th, Bellator 207 will showcase one semifinal match of the Heavyweight Grand Prix as Matt Mitrione takes on Ryan Bader in the main event of the night. Both men have shown a great deal of respect for each other and consider each other friends outside of the cage. That’s more than can be said for how the oddsmakers view this fight matchup. According to BetOnline, Bader is a huge favorite:

  • Ryan Bader (-340)
  • Matt Mitrione (+280)

Bader is the current light heavyweight champion and won his first GP tournament fight in spectacular fashion as he knocked out King Mo. Bader stated that he put on 10 pounds of muscle to compete in this heavyweight Grand Prix and feels great.

Bader (25-5) has won all 3 of his Bellator fights and 5 straight overall. His last loss came to at the hands of Anthon Johnson in January 2016. Since then, Bader has been a force to be reckoned with.

Matt Mitrione (13-5) is a true heavyweight and will have the height and weight advantage in this matchup. He’s on a 4 fight win streak, which has made him undefeated under the Bellator banner. MM defeated Roy Nelson in his first GP fight via Majority Decision, which most pundits felt that it should’ve been a UD. Prior to that fight, Mitrione TKO’d Fedor Emilianenko in the 1st Round of their bout at Bellator 180.

Despite the advantage in height, weight, and heavyweight experience, Mitrione is listed as a big underdog. I believe his moneyline of +280 is definitely worth taking a flier on. Especially since Mitrione was viewed as the favorite to win this tournament at +225 when the participants were first revealed. Bader was the second odds on favorite at +280.

Now that the top two early favorites are fighting each other, Bader is viewed as the best of the two. And, more than likely, Bader will prove he’s the best between these two friendly fighters on Friday night.

Will Mitrione vs Bader go the Distance?

5Dimes offers the following prop bet for this 3 Round fight:

  • Fight goes the distance (+175)
  • Fight won’t go the distance (-245)

In Mitrione’s 18 professional fights, only 3 have gone the distance. In those 3 fights, Matt has gone 2-1. Bader has seen 11 Decisions in 30 pro fights. He has won all 11 of those Decisions. In fact, Bader has either won via TKO/KO or Decision in 22 of his 25 victories.

There is a decent chance this fight can go the full 3 rounds. Mitrione went to war against Roy Nelson and survived his punching power for three rounds. Bader doesn’t quite have the same heavyweight power as Nelson or Fedor for that matter. However, Bader’s wrestling skills should be enough to win this fight especially if it goes the distance, which is the only way I see Bader winning. I believe Mitrione is too dangerous for Bader to stand up and exchange bombs with.

This fight will go the distance as Bader has excellent striking skills and these guys are friends outside of the cage.

Bellator Bet: Fight goes the distance (+175)

Bellator 208: Sonnen vs Emelianenko Betting Odds

On Saturday, October 13th, the second semifinal match of the Heavyweight Grand Prix will main event Bellator 208 and feature two world-renowned fighters – Chael Sonnen and Fedor Emilianenko. According to BetOnline, Fedor is the clear-cut favorite over Sonnen:

  • Chael Sonnen (+205)
  • Fedor Emelianenko (-240)

Sonnen (30-15-1) started off this tournament with the longest odds of winning the GP at +1400 according to Bovada. Heading into his first fight of the GP, Sonnen was a +135 underdog against Rampage Jackson -165. Sonnen would come away with an impressive Unanimous Decision victory against Jackson and move on into the semifinals to take on Fedor, who opened at +600 to win the tournament.

Fedor (37-5) was actually the underdog (+145) in his matchup against Frank Mir (-175), but went on to KO Mir in less than 1 minute into the fight. It was a great win considering Fedor was TKO’d in the 1st Round by Mitrione two fights ago.

This fight between Sonnen and Emelianenko comes down to two things: Sonnen’s takedowns vs Fedor’s punching power. Fedor is also known to have a great takedown defense. However, some fans and pundits are concerned over his TKO loss to Mitrione. Fedor looked like a shot fighter in that bout. In fact, he didn’t look a whole lot better against Mir, it’s just that Frank is further past his best days than Fedor is.

Sonnen has won two straight fights and both of them have come against MMA legends: Rampage Jackson and Wanderlei Silva. Sonnen would love to make it three straight MMA legends. And, make no mistake about it, Chael does give Fedor his props as being a heavyweight legend.

Both men are about the same height, weight and age for this fight. Fedor might have 10 pounds on Sonnen, but that shouldn’t be much of a difference considering Rampage also had that advantage on Chael. I believe that “The American Gangster” Chael Sonnen still has the grinding, take down skills to wear out Fedor. All that Fedor has going for him at this point in his career, is a KO punch of which Sonnen claims he’s well prepared for.

Sonnen has never been KO’d before, and I don’t see that happening here. I believe he will do enough to grind out a victory and move on to the finals of this tournament.

Will the Fedor vs Chael Fight go the Distance?

Just like with Bellator 207, 5Dimes has the following MMA prop bet for Bellator 208:

  • Fight goes full 3 rounds (+165)
  • Fight does not go the distance (-215)

Initially, I thought this fight could go the full three rounds. However, after examining this matchup more closely and looking at each fighter’s recent fights, I feel good about this fight not going the distance. Fedor is not the type of fighter who wants to go the distance because it most likely means that he’s being worked over on the mat. Emelianenko’s best chance to win the fight is to try and KO Chael Sonnen or TKO him early in the fight.

If Sonnen can take this fight into the latter stages then it’s largely due to his takedowns and top control, which will score him more points with the judges. However, Sonnen won’t settle with riding out the fight on the ground because Fedor can easily change the momentum of this bout with just one punch. If anything, Chael will look to finish off Fedor with a TKO or Submission via some kind of choke hold. Either way, I don’t see either fighter taking the chance of going the full 3 rounds.

Bellator Bet: Fight will not go the distance (-215)

Final Thoughts on Bellator’s Heavyweight GP SemiFinals

Who doesn’t love tournaments? This is has been a very entertaining Grand Prix and it’s going to set up a fantastic finals bout no matter who wins in these semifinal matches. However, I believe that the two grapplers in Sonnen and Bader should pick up the wins this weekend.

Both Bellator 207 and 208 will be televised live on the Paramount Network. Each event also features other intriguing fights that are worthy of your time and attention. Bellator 207 also features Roy Nelson, a heavyweight fighter that I’ve long enjoyed watching and have personally interviewed on several occasions in the past. Additionally, I’m excited to see how both Benson Henderson and Cheick Congo perform at Bellator 208.

Fedor Vs Sonnen Odds (2022) (2022) (2022) (3)

Ultimately, fight fans are going to be treated to a weekend of exciting Bellator action and I’m willing to bet that nobody jumps over the cage and starts a brawl in the stands. Although, anything is possible with Chael Sonnen.
