Karl Amoussou Competes At Bellator 59
All good things must come to an end and this Saturday Night, the fifth season of Bellator will be coming to an end with an explosive line up. That explosive line up begins on Spike.com, which will be airing all five preliminary card fights live before the MTV2 broadcast. That portion of the card recently underwent a few changes, but the card will be featuring the top rated Karl Amoussou.
Kicking off the card is a middleweight division contest as Gregory Milliard (1-2-0) does battle with Brandon Sailing (6-4-0). Gregory Milliard not only has a subpar record currently as a fighter, but he also has not competed in well over two years. Brandon Saling will be entering this fight riding a three fight winning streak, plus this will be his third fight in two months. This fight looks like it was set up for a Brandon Saling victory and that is exactly what will be happening here.
We now move to the featherweight division for the next battle as Scott “The Animal” Heckman (8-3-0) competes against Brylan Van Artsdalen (5-2-0). Scott Heckman is currently winless in Bellator competition, having lost to Alexandre Bezzera at Bellator 49. Brylan Van Artsdalen is also winless in his current Bellator campaign, losing to Joel Roberts at Bellator 49. This fight could determine who may still have a future in Bellator and that fighter is going to be Brylan Van Arsdale.
The welterweight division will be highlighted next as Lucas Pimenta Borges (4-0-0) stands across the cage from Doug “Flash” Gordon (11-10-0). Lucas Pimenta Borges is an undefeated fighter who will be competing for the third time in just two months. Doug Gordon has only won one of four fights heading into Saturday Night, last defeating Jesus Martinez in December 2010. This fight is going to be the biggest test of Lucas Pimenta Borges young MMA career, but it will be a test that he passes.
We return to the middleweight division for the next contest as Levon “Da Maynman” Maynard (11-8-0) faces Chris “Red“Line” Wing (3-1-0). Levon Maynard is currently winless in Bellator competition, losing to both Rick Hawn and Giedrius Karavackas. Chris Wing is off to an impressive start in his young MMA career, with two victories coming in the Ring Of Combat promotion. This battle could be to avoid the pink slip for Levon Maynard, but he will be getting one as Chris Wing gets the victory.
Headlining this portion of the card is a middleweight division clash as Karl “Psycho” Amoussou (12-4-2) faces Jesus “Chavo” Martinez (6-1-0). Karl Amoussou is a well-traveled MMA veteran who made his Bellator debut at Bellator 45, losing to Sam Alvey. Jesus Martinez has only fought once thus far in 2011, defeating Chris Wing by knockout at Matrix Fights IV. The huge experience edge for Karl Amoussou will be carrying him to victory when this fight is put in the record books.
