Dshell’s MMA Main Event 12.4.2021

Louis Smolka (Striker/Grappler) vs Vince Morales (Striker) 

Smolka is a very fun fighter to watch and I think this is another fight that will be a fun one. I think Smolka tries to get this one to the ground because Morales is a very one dimensional fighter. Look for Smolka to wear him out and get a victory by stoppage.

Claudio Puelles (Striker/Grappler) vs Chris Gruetzemacher (Wrestler)

I hate this fight and will be totally avoiding it. I think this could be the most boring fight on the card and there are so many better fights to use in your lineups.

Alonzo Menifield (Striker) vs William Knight (Striker/Wrestler)

Both of these fighters are going to want different things. Alonzo will want to keep this standing and look to knock him out, while William is going to try to get this down and wear Alonzo out. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out. Alonzo has an 85% takedown defense. We will see what happens in this one. 

Mallory Martin (Grappler) vs Cheyanne Buys (Well Rounded)

Not a fan of either of these ladies and not a fan of this fight. With that being said, I like the dog in this one. I think Buys recent case of COVID will have a factor in this one. 

Jake Matthews (Striker) vs Jeremiah Wells (Grappler)

Another live dog upset that I like. Matthews has a problem with people submitting him and Wells just had his teammate do it to Matthews. He will give all the pointers he needs to win this one. Give me Wells.

Bryan Barberena (Striker) vs Darian Weeks (Well Rounded)

This could be a wild one here. Bryan is coming into this fight struggling big time and Weeks is making his UFC debut. Usually you go with the vet in this situation, but I think I may go with the newcomer. It’ll be a brawl, so I think it could be either guy coming out with the victory. 

Zhalgas Zhumagulov (Striker) vs Manel Kape (Striker)

I think this fight is a lot closer than the line says. Kape has not been impressive at all since he has joined the UFC. I do think Kape wins, but don’t be surprised if the dog takes this one.

Maki Pitolo (Striker) vs Dusko Todorovic (Striker)

Another fight where I could see these men fighting for their UFC careers. Both need a win in the baddest of ways. It should be a solid fight between two high paced fighters. I think this one gets to the judges and we get a narrow win from one of these men.

Mickey Gall (Striker/Grappler) vs Alex Morono (Striker/Grappler)

I am not a Gall fan at all. I think he sucks and tries to strike too much and he isn’t good at it at all. Morono should be able to control this fight and take care of Gall easily. I really like Morono here.

Brendan Allen (Striker) vs Chris Curtis (Striker)

Can Curtis do it two times in a row? I sure hope so. I am a huge Curtis fan as I watched him get a title in Premier MMA Championship live in Cincinnati. I think Allen wins this one, but I am rooting for Curtis big time here.

Jim Crute (Striker/Grappler) vs Jamahal Hill (Striker)

Hill looked so bad during the weigh in. He doesn’t look good at all and he even looks a little fat. Jimmy Crute is a solid fighter who will look to take him down and lay it on Hill.

Brad Riddell (Striker) vs Rafael Fiziev (Striker)

This fight is so much fun. Fiziev will look to start fast and try to get Riddell hurt early. Riddell is more on the slower start and end things. This fight will be determined at the halfway mark of this fight. Enjoy the show.

Rob Font (Striker/Grappler) vs Jose Aldo (Well Rounded)

Font has hands and I think he is an awesome fighter who is going to get a title shot one day. BUT I think Aldo is back. I know I know. His past two fights have both been wins and he looks rejuvenated at 35. I think this is one of my favorite bets of the night. Should be a really fun card and a really fun night of fights. Enjoy!
