Bellator 194: A Look Ahead

by Brian Woodman Jr. on 02/05/18

Bellator 194 will be coming to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Feb. 16 and the main card looks promising.

The main event, a bout between Roy "Big Country" Nelson (23-14) and Matt Mitrione (12-5), will mark the start of the promortion's latest Heavyweight Grand Prix. But the rest of the card does not suffer by comparison -- the co-main event is a lightweight bout Patricky Pitbull (18-8) versus Derek Campos (19-6), while Liam McGeary (12-2) will battle fellow light heavyweight Vadim Nemkov (8-2)

But a women's flyweight fight between Heather Hardy (1-1) versus Ana Julaton (2-3) may be what really grab's people's attention. The fight will proceed a boxing math between the two that will occur at a later date.

The main card will also offer a featherweight bout between Tywan Claxton (1-0) and Jose Antonio Perez (0-1)

The preliminary card as of press time is:

Lightweight: Marcus Surin (4-1 ) versus Dean Hancock (3-1).

Bantamweight: Mike Kimbel (0-0) versus Geoffrey Then (0-1).

Welterweight: Vinicius De Jesus (5-2) versus Jesse McElligott (5-3).

Lightweight: Tyler Hamilton (1-0) versus Pat Casey (0-0).

Featherweight: Regivaldo Carvalho (4-2) versus Thomas English (6-8).

Catchweight: Peter Nascimento, in his professional debut, versus Kastroit Xhema (1-1).

Lightweight: Ross Richardson (0-0) versus Nick Giulietti, both in their professional debuts.

More information will be posted in the next two weeks.
