The MMA Vivisection - Bellator 142: Dynamite picks, odds, and analysis

New, 48 comments

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are joined by the inimitable Dallas Winston for a very special breakdown of Bellator's MMA/Kickboxing supercard, Dynamite. Feature a 4-man, 1-night LHW tournament with Emanuel Newton, Phil Davis, King Mo, and Linton Vassel. The card will be headlined by LHW champ Liam McGeary defending his belt against former UFC champ Tito Ortiz, and feature the debut of UFC & Strikeforce vet Josh Thompson. Oh, and Kickboxing powerhouse Zack Mwekassa will be there too!

Wait, Dallas is back!? You're damn right Dallas is back. At least for one more Vivisection as he joins Connor and Zane to talk all the ins and outs of Bellator's big tent pole kickboxing & MMA event. It's a huge spectacle of fisticuffs as the Viacom promotion will run two rings side by side, one for MMA, one for Kickboxing, sometimes with a fight each at the same time. Add a 4-man, 1-night tournament on top of all that and you've got yourself some quality spectacle.

Liam McGeary will make the first defense of his light heavyweight title against legendary former UFC champ Tito Ortiz, and his next challenger will be decided when Phil Davis, Emanuel Newton, King Mo, and Linton Vassel put on 3 fights in one night to crown one true no. 1 contender. Oh, and Zack Mwekassa is going to try and avenge a loss to Saulo Cavalari and Serhiy Adamchuk and Paul Daley are going to throw bombs at their respective opponents!
