The MMA Vivi - Bellator 202 & 203 double-header

Get the Full StoryZane Simon, Eddie Mercado, & Victor Rodriguez of return to breakdown this week s Bellator events in Thackerville and Rome. With picks and odds for the main cards. Bellator takes a page from the UFC s International Fight Week this week, with back-to-back events on Friday & Saturday. Altogether what would make one really decent card gets spread out over two events, with Julia Budd defending her featherweight title against Talita Nogueira and Patricio Freire re-matching Daniel Weichel with the featherweight belt on the line. Throw former welterweight champ Andrey Koreshkov in a showcase and former bantamweight champ Edurado Dantas in against Michael McDonald and there should be plenty of action over two days.
