Logan Storley Betting Preview

Storley is looking to redeem himself after a unanimous decision defeat against current welterweight champion Yaroslav Amosov (his second loss against him) back in February of this year. This snapped his previous three fight winning streak dating back 2021.

His fighting resume shows that 14 of his victories consist of eight knockouts and six decisions. Six of his 14 knockouts have resulted in a first round finish and both of his losses have come by decision.

"Storm” has been a prominent figure in Bellator, going 9-2 and dominating the division. As mentioned, his only losses have been against Amosov, who is an animal (27-0).

This will be another quality test for him to get back on track. Based on his ability to end fights early by knockout, he will likely be trying to take some frustration out in this battle.

Brennan Ward Betting Preview

Ward is hoping to extend his three fight winning streak with a win against one of the best in the division. He is coming off of a second round TKO against Sabah Homasi back in February of this year.

His fighting resume shows that he has 17 wins that consist of 12 knockouts, four submissions, and one decision. Nine of his 17 wins have resulted in a first round finish and four of his six losses have come by submission.

“Irish” has some solid performances in Bellator, going 12-6 in his 18 battles. Currently, he is ranked seventh in the league but is 96th worldwide for best welterweight.

This is his toughest battle so far in his career and he has a lot of pressure to perform. With a victory here, he would greatly climb the rankings and set himself up for a title shot down the line.
