In the world of MMA, the action rarely slows down, as it now seems as though there is a new event coming almost every single day of the week. The weekend is where things really begin to heat up, though, and we have some big ones coming our way over the next couple of days. Bellator 291 is being held in Ireland, so the start of this event might well be a little earlier than you are used to, with the action set to begin at 11:30 AM EST. There are 5 fights on the main card, which includes a title fight as the headliner, so let’s get right into the action so you can bet on Bellator fights.
MMA – Bellator 291: Amosov vs. Storley 2 – Main Card Picks
Ciaran Clarke Vs Leonardos Sinis
Given the location of this event, it should be no surprise to see Irish fighters on the main card. Clarke, who is the first one up, comes in with a perfect 6-0 record, with 4 of those wins coming inside the distance, Sinis is 11-5-1 overall, and while he has won 2 in a row, those wins came after a 3-fight losing skid. I think the hometown boy wins, with Clarke getting it done via submission.
Sinead Kavanagh Vs Janay Harding
The ladies are up next for a Featherweight bout, with Ireland once again represented. This time it is Kavanagh who the home crowd will be cheering for, She is 8-5 overall and has been good of late, winning 3 of her last 4. On the flipside, Harding has struggled and has now lost 4 of her last 5 fights, including the last 2, to fall to 6-6. I am on Kavanagh to win by decision.
Peter Queally Vs Bryce Logan
This is the last of the main card fights featuring an Irish fighter, but can Peter Queally make it a clean sweep? He comes into this one with a 13-7-1 record, but he has also lost 2 in a row and 3 of his last 5 bouts. Logan has not really been much better of late, stepping into this match on a 3-fight losing streak. Both men could really use a win here, but I think it will be Queally that takes it.
Pedro Carvalho Vs Jeremy Kennedy
The co-main event of the night is a Featherweight bout. Carvalho may be from Portugal, bur he currently fights out of Dublin, Ireland. He is 13-6 overall and seems to be coming back into a bit of form after winning 2 of his last 3 bouts. Kennedy is an impressive 18-3 overall, but it is worth noting that 2 of those losses have come in his last 4 bouts, although he has won 2 in a row. I like Kennedy to get the decision win.
Yaroslav Amosov Vs Logan Storley
We end the night with a title fight, with this one being for the Welterweight Championship. Amosov is the defending champion and is an absolute beast, sitting at 26-0 overall. That includes wins in all 7 fights with Bellator. Storley comes in at 14-1, which includes going 9-1 during his time in Bellator. This should be a great fight, but I have the champion edging it by decision.
