BELLATOR 195 PREDICTIONS 3/2: Grocke’s predictions for every fight


Bellator MMA makes its way to back to the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma for Bellator 195. The main event takes place in the bantamweight division where Darrion Caldwell defends his title against Leandro Higo. Caldwell will be making his first title defense after capturing the belt by beating Eduardo Dantas by unanimous decision at Bellator 184.

The co-main event features long-time MMA veteran Joe Warren, as he takes on fellow vet, Joe Taimanglo. Warren is 3-3 over his last six fights, alternating wins and losses. His most recent fight was at Bellator 181 where he decisioned Steve Garcia. Joe Taimanglo enters the fight riding a two-fight losing streak. His most recent loss came at Bellator 184 where he dropped a unanimous decision to Leandro Higo.

The four-fight main card also includes Kristina Williams vs. Emily Ducote in a women’s flyweight bout and Juan Archuleta vs. William Joplin in a battle of featherweights.

The prelims will stream on starting at 6 PM CT, with the Paramount Network taking over at 8 PM CT.

Here are my predictions for each fight.
