Bellator MMA continues to add new fights to the upcoming Bellator 149 card.
The latest bout that has been added is Mike Bronzoulis (18-9 MMA, 0-2 BMMA) vs. Melvin Guillard (32-15-2 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) in a lightweight bout. This bout is expected to be on the main card.
Melvin Guillard (32-15-2) is currently on a two-fight losing streak. In his last six bouts, he’s 2-3-1. He beat Mac Danzig at UFC on Fox 8 via second-round knockout, but then his fight with Ross Pearson at UFC Fight Night 30 went to a no contest and lost to Michael Johnson at UFC Fight Night 37 via unanimous decision. He had two bouts while in WSOF, which he went 1-1. He beat Gesias Cavalcante at WSOF 11 by second-round TKO but then lost to Justin Gaethje at WSOF 15 by split decision. He lost to Brandon Girtz at Bellator 141 by split decision.
Mike Bronzoulis (18-9-1) is currently on a one-fight losing streak. In his last six bouts, he’s 3-3. He lost to Brandon Farran in January of 2014 by first-round TKO and then to Keith Johnson at TFC 29 by third-round TKO. He then ripped off three straight before joining Bellator. He beat Justin Reiswerg at LFC 37 by second-round rear-naked choke and then Johnathan Harris at LFC 39 by first-round TKO. He beat Dave Burrow next by unanimous decision to earn a Bellator MMA contract. He was choked out by Josh Thomson in the third-round at Bellator Dynamite.
The fight joins a card that already features a double main event — MMA legends Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie meet for a third time and Kimbo Slice will fight the man who has been calling him out since their friendship ended years ago, Dhafir Harris, better known as “Dada 5000.”
The event takes place on February 19th at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Tickets for this event start at just $30 and are on sale now at Bellator.com, as well as HoustonToyotaCenter.com, Toyota Center Box Office, and Houston area Randall’s locations.
