Friday night's Bellator 135: Warren vs. Galvao event from the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma is the focus of this week's MMA Vivisection.

Davis in the co-main. Former UFC middleweight Francis Carmont also makes his promotional debut in a light-heavyweight bout with Brazilian prospect Guilherme Viana and lightweights Ryan Couture and Dakota Cochrane kick off the four-fight Spike TV card.
