With no UFC this weekend, Bellator takes center stage with an Octagon veteran in the main event.
Bellator 141 goes down Friday night from Temecula, California and the Pechanga Resort and Casino with Melvin Guillard making his promotional debut vs. Brandon Girtz.
Guillard has fought for both the UFC and World Series of Fighting before, joining a select list of fighters to compete for the three main MMA promotions in the U.S. Girtz has won 11 of 15 career fights, while Guillard is 32-14-2 with a pair of no-contests in his long career.
Other Spike TV main card bouts include Patricky “Pitbull” Freire vs. Saad Award, Justin Wren vs. Josh Burns and Raphael Butler vs. Lorenzo Hood.
The prelim lineup boasts fighters such as Marloes Coenen, Derek Anderson, Brent Primus and Curtis Millender.
