Bellator 206: Betting Odds and Picks

Bellator 206: Betting Odds and Picks

Bellator will set up shop this Saturday at the SAP Center in San Jose, California with a champion vs champion bout headlining the card. The main event sees welterweight champion Rory “Red King” MacDonald moving up to middleweight to challenge for that belt against Gegard “The Dreamcatcher” Mousasi. Also on this card is Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva and the first fight in the welterweight grand prix between Douglas “The Phenom” Lima and Andrey “Spartan” Koreshkov.  

Gegard Mousasi vs Rory MacDonald

Rory MacDonald (+195) looks to become the first two-division champion in Bellator’s nine-year history when he makes the jump from welterweight to take on current middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi (-250). These two warriors have some bad blood since joining Bellator and it is a classic striker vs grappler contest. Mousasi has a 44-6-1 professional record with 25 wins via knockout with 21 of those coming in the first round. Meanwhile, MacDonald has a 20-4 record with seven wins coming by knockout, seven by submission and six by decision. Rory and Gegard are two of Bellator’s biggest stars and it is surely going to be a war when they enter the cage on Saturday.

Gegard Mousasi vs Rory MacDonald Betting Odds

Odds as of September 26 at Bovada

  • Gegard Mousasi -250
  • Rory MacDonald +195

Rampage Jackson vs Wanderlei Silva 4

For the fourth time, Rampage Jackson (-315) and Wanderlei Silva (+245) enter the cage in what will be yet another standup battle. Silva claimed two wins within a year over Jackson when the two fought in Pride between 2003 and 2004, with The Axe Murderer winning both of those fights by T/KO via knees. However, Rampage and Wanderlei met at UFC 92 and the bout went in Jackson’s favor as he scored a first-round knockout. Now, 10 years later, these two veterans are set to do it again. Silva is 35-13-1 with one no contest, earning 25 wins by knockout, while Rampage is 37-13 with 18 wins coming by T/KO. Don’t blink when this fight begins because of the vicious knockout power these two fighters possess.

Quinton Jackson vs Wanderlei Silva 4 Betting Odds

Odds as of September 26 at Bovada

  • Quinton Jackson -315
  • Wanderlei Silva +245

Douglas Lima vs Andrey Koreshkov 3

The first fight of the welterweight grand prix has a trilogy fight between Douglas Lima (+110) and Andrey Koreshkov (-140). The two former champions battled at Bellator 140 when Koreshkov won the welterweight championship in a unanimous decision. They played it back at Bellator 164 in 2016 when Lima avenged his loss with a third-round knockout.

Lima is extremely well-rounded, with 13 of his 29 professional wins coming by knockout, 11 by submission and just five by decision. Since 2009, The Phenom is 17-3 with his only three losses coming against the current welterweight champion, Rory MacDonald, and former welterweight champions Ben Askren and Andrey Koreshkov. The 30-year-old has exceptional power both from his hands and his kicks that keep his opponents guessing throughout the fight.

Koreshkov is more of a knockout specialist rather than a wrestler. Of the 21 professional victories for the 28-year-old, 12 have come via knockout and his only two career losses came against Douglas Lima and Ben Askren. The Russian has bounced back from his defeat to Lima at Bellator 164 with back-to-back first-round knockout victories.

Expect fireworks when these fighters enter the cage and whoever wins definitely is in contention for reclaiming the welterweight belt at the end of the grand prix.

Prediction: Douglas Lima (+110) via knockout

Douglas Lima vs Andrey Koreshkov 3 Betting Odds

Odds as of September 26 at Bovada

  • Douglas Lima +110
  • Andrey Koreshkov -140

Aaron Pico vs Leandro Higo

A big step up in competition looms for rising star Aaron Pico (-550) when he takes on Leandro Higo (+375). Pico began his professional career with a first-round submission loss to Zach Freeman. The 22-year-old rebounded from that defeat with three straight first-round T/KO victories and has his sights set on extending that streak vs Higo. The Pitbull is much more experienced than Pico, having 22 professional fights, and has 10 submission victories to his name, which is the kryptonite to the young brawler. Higo has dropped two of his last three fights, but at +375 and with his great submission skills, he may be worth a wager on.

Prediction: Aaron Pico (-550) via knockout
