Johnny Eblen is a base fighter of quite a high level. He has been storming Bellator since 2019 and doing it quite successfully. There are no defeats in his career yet, and he wins, not to say bright and beautiful, but quite confidently.
Last year, Eblen became champion by beating Gegard Mousasi on points, and in February, he defeated Anatoly Tokov. The Russian was not bad, maybe only in the first round. He was already physically weak in the third round, and then he just survived.
In his last fight, Fabian Edwards won by decision over Gegard Mousasi, his third win in a row. He moved to number one in the rankings and earned a chance to fight for the belt.
Expert Betting Tips
Leon Edwards' younger brother is also a tough puncher, but Eblin has seen more brutal punches in his career. It's easy to predict the scenario of the fight. It will go how the champion wants; his game plans aren't specifically sophisticated, especially against guys who are good in standing.
Eblen will only fight on the feet until he has a chance to get a takedown. Once he catches the opportunity, he'll go for it and drive his opponent around the canvas until the final bell rings. Johnny treated even Tokov like a rag doll, so that will happen to Edwards. The reigning champion has a lot of stamina, and he doesn't chase beautiful submissions, he prefers to win for sure.
