MMA Vivi - Bellator Newcastle: Pitbull vs. Scope
The MMA Vivisection, Bellator-Newcastle, Pitbull vs Scope

Zane Simon, Eddie Mercado, & Victor Rodriguez return to break down this week’s Bellator event in Newcastle, England. With picks and analysis for the main card.

The UFC isn’t the only promotion putting out a somewhat sub-par effort this week. Bellator returns with another European fight card that - while actually a general upgrade from their normal prelims, and an upgrade from their normal Euro events - is still pretty much a one-fight event. Former lightweight title challenger Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire returns for his first bout of 2019, against former BAMMA lightweight champion Ryan ‘Big Baby’ Scope. In the co-main event, reality TV star Aaron Chalmers takes on the man who beat ‘Baby Slice.’ The rest of the event is a mix of decent UK prospects and regional veterans.

Oh, and it looks like the only way for fans to watch the event in the US will be on the Bellator mobile app. But, if you want to watch the YouTube video version of our podcast, you can find it right here.
