At the top of the card we have an guaranteed all out war in the form of a rematch between a pair of bonafide Brazilian fight finishers.

Rodolfo “Trator” Bellato started off his pro mixed martial arts career with several fights on the Sao Paulo regional scene in his home country.

Bellato faced Vitor Petrino for the first time at Max Fight 22 and was knocked out viciously within 25 seconds of the opening round in what was Petrino’s pro MMA debut.

“Trator” would eventually bounce back from his only loss with a three fight winning streak, with his two most recent wins taking place under the LFA banner.

Vitor Petrino on the other hand, remains undefeated in pro mixed martial arts competition and has finished five out of his six opponents by knockout, with four of those coming in the opening round.

Our Pick

Vitor Petrino to win by KO/TKO/DQ in round one

The final Bonfim brother to make the walk on episode seven will be Gabriel, an undefeated twelve fight MMA veteran with an elite submission skillset and knock out punching power to go with it.

“Marretinha” has finished an impressive eight of his fights by way of submission but also earned a third round knockout during his LFA debut vs an undefeated 8-0-0 Brenner Alberth.

In his most recent fight at LFA 126, Gabriel Bonfim defeated Eduardo Garvon via D’Arce choke in the opening round.

His opponent, Trey “The Truth” Waters is also undefeated at the pro level but suffered two submission losses during his amateur career which lasted from 2015 to 2017.

Ever since Waters made the step up to pro level, he has been finishing opponents on the ground with a mixture of submissions as well as ground and pound strikes.

Our Pick

Gabriel Bonfim to win by submission in round one

Karl Williams vs Jimmy Lawson – Heavyweight Fight

Jimmy Lawson was originally set to face Kevin Szaflarski during this event however when the Polish heavyweight withdrew, Karl Williams stepped up on less than a week’s notice to replace him.

Williams started off his amateur mixed martial arts career in Atlanta, Georgia where he won five fights by decision alongside a sole arm bar submission loss.

When bumping up to pro level, Williams would earn his first ever first round KO, followed by another decision win and a doctor’s stoppage, before losing yet another fight by submission.

Williams’ most impressive victory to date took place during his most recent fight at XMMA 5 where he defeated Simon Marini by KO in just three minutes and fifty seconds of round one.

Jimmy Lawson decided to skip the amteur leagues and dive straight into pro mixed martial arts competition.

Lawson made his MMA debut at Titan FC 54 vs current Bellator fighter Said Sowma but ultimately ended up losing the bout by unanimous decision.

This loss would light a fire inside of Jimmy Lawson, as he has no lost another fight since his debut and knocked out all four of his next opponents, with the last three of those knockouts coming in round one.

Our Pick

Jimmy Lawson to win by KO/TKO/DQ in round one

Ismael Bonfim vs Nariman Abbasov – Lightweight Fight

Ismael “Marretta” Bonfim will be looking to extend his winning streak to twelve and in turn, give a momentum boost to his younger brother Gabriel, who fights later during the night.

Bonfim is a veteran of the sport who has been competining since 2011 and possesses a very diverse skill set, achieving a plethora of finishes throughout his career.

He has not lost a fight since 2014 when he was defeated by current UFC lightweight fighter Renato Moicano at Jungle Fight 71 in Brazil.

His opponent, Nariman Abbasov is also a veteran of the sport, and started off his mixed martial arts career in Russia, where he has been competing since 2013.

Also just like his opponent, Abbasov’s losses came early in his career and he has been on a seemingly unstoppable run since 2017, with a mixture of finishes and decisions.

Our Pick

Nariman Abbasov to win by KO/TKO/DQ in round one

Tereza Bleda vs Nayara Maia – Women’s Flyweight Fight

Tereza Bleda has dreamt of becoming a UFC fighter ever since watching her idol, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey compete and dominate in the promotion, paving the way for women’s MMA at the top level.

Bleda went 9-0 in her amateur career before switching to pro and extending her jaw dropping winning streak to fourteen in a row.

Bleda has been fighting under the Czech promotion Oktagon throughout her career and her perfect pro record consists of two submission wins, a pair of knockouts and a unanimous decision.

Like many Brazilian fighters, Nayara Maia did not test herself at the amateur level but instead jumped straight into pro mixed martial arts competition.

Maia remains undefeated and her record consists of three decision wins, with three knockouts, two submissions and a draw via decision.

Our Pick

Tereza Bleda to win by KO/TKO/DQ in round one
