Bellator 27 Odds Preview - Soto vs Warren

They are far from a pair of Ordinary Joes and either Warren or Soto will be the new Bellator Featherweight champ this week. Bellator Fighting Championships will be back in San Antonio at the Majestic Theatre and the Bellator 27 odds menu is a tasty one for MMA bettors. The card will feature a highly anticipated Bellator Featherweight Championship fight between current title holder Joe Soto (9-0-0) and 2007 Wrestling World Cup champion Joe Warren (5-1-0). The rest of the main card consists of three quarterfinal Bantamweight tournament matchups, one between Ulysses Gomez (6-1-0) and Travis Reddinger (14-2-0), another between Nick Mamalis (10-4-0) and Zack Makovsky (9-2-0), and the other pitting Bryan Goldsby (15-7-0) against Ed West (13-4-0). The Bellator 27 undercard then has five “local interest” fights for all the Southern California MMA fans.

Joe Soto became Bellator’s first Featherweight Champion in June 2009 after winning the Season 1 Featherweight tournament. Since then he’s beaten Diego Saraiva and Mike Christensen, but this fight against Warren will be his first defense of the title. Warren will also be Soto’s biggest test to date, and bookmakers are hovering between even odds to Soto coming in at -110. Warren brings elite wrestling skills and will be more than a handful for anyone at 135lbs. He forced the MMA world to notice him when he won his first two rounds of the Dream Promotion’s Featherweight tournament last year. He followed that up by winning the Season 2 Bellator Featherweight tournament, which got him the title shot this Thursday. Odds on Warren getting the best of Soto and becoming champion are -120. The most interesting Bantamweight fight on the card is the Gomez/Reddinger matchup. Reddinger trains under Sergio Cunha, and Cunha is responsible for creating champions like Anderson Silva, Mauricio Rua, and B.J. Penn. Both Gomez and Reddinger will bring a four-fight win streak with them Thursday night. Ten local fighters will throw down against each other as they try to climb the rankings and earn a spot in a future Bellator tournament. The local interest undercard shapes up like this: Andrew Craig (1-0) vs. Rodrigo Pinheiro (3-0) Aaron Barringer (4-2) vs. Gilbert Jimenez (2-1) Derek Lewis (2-1) vs. Richard Odoms (0-1) Joe Christopher (10-3) vs. Andrew Chappelle (8-6) Brian Lightfoot (2-2) vs. Shane Faulkner (4-2)
