Predictions for Bellator Fighting Championships: Week 1

The debut of the Bellator Fighting Championships is tonight in Hollywood, Florida (it airs tomorrow on ESPN Deportes), and the event features the opening rounds of the organization's eagerly anticipated lightweight and featherweight eight-man tournaments. Some of the best Latino (or somewhat Latino) fighters around are on tap, including Eddie Alvarez, Jorge Masvidal, Nick Agallar and, um, some others. Anyway, MMA Journalist has analyzed the match-ups to make the following rock-solid predictions:
  • Eddie Alvarez vs. Gordita Supreme - This bout pits a top-ten heavy-handed 155-pound slugger against a warm, pillowy flatbread filled with seasoned ground beef, sour cream, lettuce and a blend of three cheeses. Alvarez has had trouble with different cheeses in the past, but look for him to score the KO late.
  • Jorge Masvidal vs. Fiesta Burrito - A dangerous striker from American Top Team takes on a warm, soft, flour tortilla wrapped around seasoned ground beef, cheddar cheese, seasoned rice and Fiesta Salsa in this one. Expect a stand-up war with Masvidal emerging victorious.
  • Nick Agallar vs. Double Decker Taco - Agallar brings strong wrestling and a ton of experience into the ring, but he's matching up against a warm, soft, flour tortilla spread with hearty beans and wrapped around a crunchy corn taco shell filled with seasoned ground beef, lettuce and cheese. Look for Double Decker Taco to give Agallar fits both on the feet and on the ground.
  • Toby Imada vs. a packet of mild Border Sauce - Toby Imada may have been around forever, but that packet of mild Border Sauce is simply going to kick his ass.
