Bet Bellator 181
Main Card (Spike TV)
Brandon Girtz vs. Derek Campos
Girtz is 14-6 in his career, while Campos is 18-6. Campos won the first meeting between the two by unanimous decision, while Girtz won the second by TKO. Campos has won his last three fights and told KCBD TV in Lubbock, Texas that he is very confident.
“Mentally and physically, I am at the top of my game right now,” Campos said. “Physically I only have to cut a few pounds, and the idea is to be as close as possible to weight. If you are conditioned, and training as hard as you need to be. Then cutting the weight to get into the weight class, should be nothing. Everything leading up to the fight will seem hard, but the fight itself will be easy.”
Girtz has not won a fight since beating Campos in 2015, as he was beaten by Adam Piccolotti late last year at Bellator 165 and Girtz lost to Fernando Gonzalez at Bellator 174 in March of this year.
I will take Campos to get the win in this fight.
Valerie Letourneau vs. Emily Ducote
Letourneau is 8-6 in her career, while Ducote is 5-2. I will take Letourneau in this bout.
Joe Warren vs. Steve Garcia
Warren is 14-6 in his career, while Garcia is 7-1. Warren is 40 years old but he said to the Orlando Sentinel that he is not done yet. Warren lost a bantamweight title bout to Eduardo Dantas in December. “My base is wrestling; it always has been,” Warren said. “Dantas stayed at a distance, used his footwork and caught me sleeping. I knew I needed to evolve, so once this old man figured out how to move his feet, I’m ready to go get that belt again.” I will take Warren to get the win.
Kendall Grove vs. John Salter
Grove is 23-16 in his career, while Salter is 13-3. I will pass on this one.
