Bellator 85 is set to go down tonight on Spike TV. Headlining the card is a spectacular lightweight bout between current champion Michael Chandler and Olympic Judo player Rick Hawn. Both fighters want to win in decisive fashion, and they will have their hands full as both fighters possess well-rounded skills. This fight is scheduled to go five rounds, but fans should expect this one to end early as both possess knockout power in their hands.
Also, Pat Curran will look to defend his featherweight belt against the always-dangerous Patricio Freire. Both fighters are extremely fast and have competent stand up skills, which should make this a classic. Pat Curran is a rising star under the Bellator promotion, and he will continue to progress as a champion when he takes on Patricio, who is a brutal finisher both standing up and on the ground.
Renato Sobral will also get back in action tonight against Mikhail Zayats. Sobral has been a longtime UFC fighter who possess a great chin and dynamic submissions off his back. He will look to get another win under his belt in hopes of competing for a Bellator light heavyweight championship. Zayat is a formidable opponent, so fans should expect fire works in the opening round.
