SILVA Predictions for Bellator 65

Here’s what SILVA thinks of the fights tomorrow night:
The first two fights are bantamweight quarterfinal fights. The winners will join Travis Marx and Hiroshi Nakamura in the semifinals; with Masakatsu Ueda having been upset by Marx last week, I consider Alexis Vila to be the clear favorite to take the tournament.
The featherweight fight is a semifinal, and the winner will take on Marlon Sandro in the tournament finals. I like Daniel Straus a lot, and I think he’ll do what it takes to beat Mike Corey.
The final bout is a Bellator bantamweight championship fight, and it’s the second fight SILVA has picked the challenger to win since I’ve started covering Bellator events, with the first being Pat Curran beating Joe Warren. Dantas is probably a bit overrated by SILVA, but I’ll still give him the slight edge to beat current champion Zach Makovsky.
