The State of Oklahoma and the nation of Italy will be linked in blood and violence this weekend, thanks to a Bellator double-header that has Bellator 202 and 203 hitting us one day after the other.
Bellator 202 has female featherweight champ Julia Budd defending her belt against Talita Nogueira, which is whatever. But the co-main event has former bantamweight king Eduardo Dantas taking on former UFC contender Michael McDonald, and therein will lie the majority of the bloodshed.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Bellator 203 will see featherweight king Patricio Freire clash with Daniel Weichel in the main event. “Pitbull” already took Weichel out in convincing fashion the last time they met, so this one could be a snuff film.
And further down the card, there’s former welterweight champ Andrey Koreshkov. He’s taking on a no-name in Vaso Bakocevic, so yeah, someone is getting their head lopped off for sure.
Good times, right?
