For Fight Night 11, Samson Bieri has stepped in to provide his predictions and analysis for the seven MMA bouts on the card.

Bieri holds an amateur record of 3-1 and is coming off a strong performance at Prestige FC 11 with a second round submission over Jay Whitford. Bieri’s next bout has yet to be confirmed, but there were rumours of him receiving a shot at the Prestige FC amateur featherweight title next.

Here are Bieri’s predictions for Fight Night 11:

Denis Puric (7-5) vs Terrion Ware (17-9): PRO Bantamweight Title Bout** FIGHT PREVIEW

“This is a tough fight as both guys come out hard. With Ware coming off a few losses, I think he’s going to be hungry for a finish.”

Prediction: Ware wins by TKO in the third round.

Shane Campbell (17-8) vs David Jordan (7-4): PRO Lightweight Title Bout** FIGHT PREVIEW

“Campbell has been fighting good guys for a very long time, and I think his experience will get the job done for him.”

Prediction: Campbell wins by submission in the second round.

Lucas Neufeld (4-1) vs Jose Johnson (10-5): PRO Featherweight FIGHT PREVIEW

“Neufeld will be fighting in front of his hometown crowd once again, and Johnson is taking this fight on short notice. You don’t want Neufeld on short notice.”

Prediction: Neufeld wins by submission in the second round.

Josh Hill (17-3) vs Gilberto Aguilar (17-17-1): PRO Bantamweight

“Hill’s proven to be a well-rounded fighter, and is looking to go on another streak. He’s beaten some the best guys on the regional scene already.”

Prediction: Hill wins by knockout in the second round.

Melissa Croden (0-0) vs Jolinne Dagenais (0-0): PRO Women’s Bantamweight

“When two fighters are coming in 0-0, it’s always a toss up. But with her dangerous striking, Croden walked through everyone she faced in her 5-0 amateur career, and I see her picking up right where she left off.”

Prediction: Croden wins by unanimous decision.

Kolton Menzak (5-5) vs Tom Theocharis (3-2): PRO Welterweight

“Theocharis has proven, so far, to be quite the exciting fighter. I think his dynamic striking and unpredictability will be too much for Menzak.”

Prediction: Theocharis wins by unanimous decision.

Derek Khosa (2-0) vs Dan Kovalchuk (5-2): AMATEUR Welterweight

“I’ve seen Kovalchuk fight a couple times, and each time it’s been with a very game opponent. I think his experience and heart will get him the win.”

Prediction: Kovalchuk wins by TKO in the second round.
