Bellator is back this week with a card to match the UFC on Fox 20 show in quality, which is to say, not something that's going to excite the hearts and minds of the casual fan, but with just enough on it to keep you junkies around. They're headlining the program with a bantamweight bout between Darrion Caldwell and Joe Taimanglo, while David Rickels vs. Melvin Guillard serve as the co-main event. Add on a LHW bout between Philipe Lins and Guilherme Viana and a featherweight contest between Daniel Weichel and Emmanuel Sanchez and you've got a fun action card to keep you occupied on a Friday night.
