Zane Simon is joined by Victor Rodriguez and Eddie Mercado to pick apart the main card of this weekend’s Bellator event in Thackerville, Oklahoma. We’ll have picks and odds for the notable fights, including the women’s featherweight title fight between Marloes Coenen and Julia Budd.

Bellator had a pretty fun looking card set for this Friday night in Thackerville, Oklahoma. At least it was until the weigh-ins happened. Bad misses by Mike Rhodes and Joe Taimanglo prompted the promotion to scrap their main card opener and co-main event. Francisco Gonzalez coming in 4 pounds overweight and his opponent Brandon Girtz coming in 5 lbs under makes for a strange welterweight spectacle. And A late injury to Wayman Carter means that even Rafael Lovato Jr.’s new maincard slot has a feeling of meaningless to it. The best laid plans… Still, Coenen vs. Budd should be fun.
