    I have only seen the televised portion of this card as of now, I am planning on watching the prelims on replay in a few minutes, but what I saw on the televised portion of this card was a total awful fight plan by Marcos Galvo against Eduardo Dantas. I never understood why he did not chose to smother Eduardo Dantas and make it a dirty fight to negate Eduardo Dantas speed advantage. But he chose to do, well, I don’t know what he was doing. Actually, I do know what he was doing, he was on the receiving of being outperformed. Brandon Halsey showed once again he is a one dimensional MMA fighter. When his opponents show him that they can deal with his wrestling, he is kind of helpless in the cage. I know he is a former champion, but I hope Bellator matchmakers slow him down with the type of fighters he faces in his next two or three fights. And Chidi Njokuani has some really good takedown defense. How about Chidi Njokuani versus Michael Venom Page (lol). That would be a stand up strikers fans dream fight. And Chris Honeycutt pulled one out over Mikkel Parlo. That is just the type of fight that helps a young prospect develop because it is a fight that nothing came easy and his opponent made him work for everything. Nice main card. I was only disappointed by Marcos Galvo performance.
