Bellator 262 Predictions & Tips


Bellator MMA 262 takes place on Friday, July 16 and is headlined by women’s flyweight title fight between Juliana Velasquez and Denise Kielholtz.

Our tips for the night’s action are provided by expert MMA analysts and tipsters.

Juliana Velasquez vs Denise Kielholtz


Juliana Velasquez can make a successful defence of the women’s flyweight title.

Velasquez has firmly established herself as one of the top female fighters not currently on the UFC’s books.

She boasts a great all-round game and her background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu will be key here.

Velasquez can take kickboxer Denise Kielholtz down to the mat and grind her down for the win.

Tyrell Fortune vs Matt Mitrione


Matt Mitrione is Tyrell Fortune’s toughest test to date, but it is a test that Fortune can pass.

Mitrione has not won a fight for three years and is clearly on the downward turn in his career.

Fortune, on the other hand, is on the up. He can take down Mitrione and finish him with brutal ground & pound.

Johnny Eblen vs Travis Davis


Johnny Eblen is one to keep a firm eye on in the middleweight division and he can continue his rise.

Eblen is a superb grappler with fight-stopping power in his hands so he could be too much for Travis Davis.

Arlene Blencowe vs Dayana Silva


Arlene Blencowe’s record does not leap off the page but over the past five years her losses have come against the very best.

She is 3-1 in her last four fights (the loss was to Cris Cyborg) and can make it 4-1 by edging what could be a close fight that goes the distance.

Verdict

Velasquez’s stock continues to grow and she could be too much for Kielholtz on the ground.

Fortune and Eblen can also add to their growing reputations, while Blencowe could make a return to winning ways.
