BELLATOR 188 PREDICTIONS: Grocke’s updated odds and predictions for the main card


After the chaos caused by Conor McGregor at Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland last week, Bellator MMA continues on with their overseas tour with a stop in Tel Aviv, Israel for Bellator 188. The original main event of Patricio “Pitbull” Freire vs. Daniel Weichel had to be scrapped due to an injury suffered by Freire. The co-main event of Noad Lahat vs. Jeremiah Labiano now moves into the main event spot.

The new co-main event takes place in the welterweight division where Hain Gozali takes on Arsen Faitovich. The main card rounds out with Jason Radcliffe vs. John Salter and Jessica Middleton vs. Denise Kielholtz.

Bellator 188 airs on tape delay on Spike Friday at 9/8PM CST.
