Bellator 276 | US | Saturday

Featherweight, Adam Borics (17-1)

The 26-year-old from Hungary has a background in Thai boxing and karate but is more effective on the mat. On the feet, Adam Borics is explosive and has good extension on his strikes. His takedown defense isn’t where it needs to be, but he is excellent at locking up the triangle with three of his five submission wins by triangle. Borics is a dangerous fighter no matter where the fight goes. He fights Mads Burnell (16-3).

Middleweight, Johnny Eblen (10-0)

Eblen has a background as a Division I wrestler for the University of Missouri and he’s absolutely dominated with takedowns in MMA thus far. On the feet, Eblen bounces in and out throwing the outside leg kick well. Eblen times his shots very well grabbing the single leg and pressing his opponent against the cage then dropping levels executing the double leg. He’s a relentless wrestler and a dang good one. Eblen’s hands are improving displaying knockout power. He fights John Salter (18-5).

Featherweight, Jay Jay Wilson (8-0)

The Kiwi has displayed beautiful jiu-jitsu and has showed that once he gets the back he has a fantastic rear-naked choke. His wrestling is good and his overall ground game is high-level. On the feet Wilson just throws with the flow and has a nice overhand right. Everything is to close the distance to get where he’s most comfortable at. He fights Gadzhi Rabadanov (16-4-2).

Featherweight, Cody Law (5-0)

Law has looked outstanding in his short pro career thus far. Law is light on his feet, and throws frequent combinations as his hands are improving along the way. Law has top-notch wrestling and the work he does on top is impressive. He has smashing active ground and pound, good positional grappling, and has a dangerous ability to attack the neck. He fights James Adcock (7-4).

Welterweight, Roman Faraldo (5-0)

Faraldo is mainly a striker as he is hardly ever on the mat. Faraldo has knockout power, precision, and timing. He can overextend on his punches but has never been caught. For the most part, Faraldo will sit on the outside with long punches and the jab and catch his opponents coming in. At any time he can explode and shut the lights out with his hands, kicks, and knees. A very dangerous guy to watch for. He fights Kelvin Rayford (5-3).
