Rad Martinez vs. Shahbulat Shamhalev
The Russians run comes to an end here. Rad Martinez has got to the finals of this tournament by applying constant pressure on his opponents and wearing them out. Shahbulat's cardio is not where it needs to be and he will crumble under the pressure that Rad will put him on. The only chance I give Shahbulat is in the first round where he is fresh and may be able to land a heavy shot but even then Rad has a great chin. Rad should be able to put a pace on Shahbulat that will exhaust him and ride him out to a decision win.

Muhammad Lawal vs. Emmanuel Newton
Another mismatch in the favor of 'King Mo'. Lawal has the advantage in literally every aspect of this fight and I expect him to win pretty decisively. Newton hasn't been finished with punches since his pro debut back in 2003 and I don't expect that stat to end here. Lawal will be dominant, but no finish.

I can't see a way for Lima to lose this fight. Lima is too good to lose this fight against Baker. He is faster, stronger, more technical, I guess what I am trying to say is that he is clearly the better fighter here. Baker has a tendency to gets hit lots, and Douglas Lima hits like a truck. I'm not so sure Baker will be able to last a round with Lima but I'll give him the benefit on the doubt.

Noe has impressed me while Zayats has not. I'm going on a hunch with this fight as I don't know either guy very well. Noe seems to have some power in his hands while Zayats has been finished with strikes on three occasions.
