SILVA Predictions For Bellator 60

After I processed the SILVA scores for a number of Bellator fighters, I increasingly came to the realization that I really should be giving coverage of some kind to this organization. With Cole Konrad, Hector Lombard, Ben Askren, Michael Chandler and Patricio Freire all rating as excellent fighters according to SILVA, among a number of others, it’s clear that Bellator has done a tremendous job of identifying and developing great MMA talent.

With that said, here are the SILVA scores for the main card participants of Bellator 60, taking place Friday evening, including the first round of their featherweight tournament:

Main Card Fights – 8:00 PM (7:00 CT) on MTV2

  • 145 lbs tournament match: Daniel Straus (72.72) over Jeremy Spoon (62.80)
  • 145 lbs tournament match: Alexandre Bezerra (47.63) over Kenny Foster (13.13)
  • 145 lbs tournament match: Mike Corey (54.14) over Ronnie Mann (48.93)
  • 145 lbs tournament match: Marlon Sandro (52.59) over Roberto Vargas (47.46)
  • Bellator featherweight championship match: Pat Curran (73.62) over Joe Warren (73.04)

If you’re wondering where I’ve been all week, not only have I processed the SILVA scores for this Bellator event, but I’ve also processed the SILVA scores for all fighters set to compete on TUF 15, which debuts Friday evening as well. I’ll have a post up about that tomorrow afternoon, before the episode takes place.

    Warren is a smaller version of Lesnar, he is way overrated. His SILVA should be lower than that.

      Some argue that Warren should be 5-5 and not 7-3, as his decision wins against Marcos Galvao and Patricio Freire were both controversial. If those fights are both counted as losses instead of wins, Warren’s SILVA score would be 48.65, which I think sounds about right. Warren represents a consequence of keeping the system objective.
