Bellator MMA 264 takes place on Friday, August 13 and is headlined by the middleweight title fight between Gegard Mousasi and #1 ranked John Salter.

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

Gegard Mousasi vs John Salter

Gegard Mousasi regained the middleweight crown with a convincing decision win over Douglas Lima last October.

He should enjoy a first successful defence of that crown in the Bellator 264 main event.

John Salter has earned the shot with a three-fight win streak but he just does not have the skill set to dethrone Mousasi.

The champion is the better fighter and can use his crisp kickboxing skills to light up and break down Salter.

Andrey Koreshkov vs Sabah Homasi

Andrey Koreshkov has gone 4-2 since losing the welterweight title in 2016.

There have been good performances and poor performances in that time, making it a little tough to predict what we will see.

But if the ‘good’ Koreshkov shows up he could have far too much for Sabah Homasi to handle.

Homasi has a tendency to get lured into slugfests and if he does that with Koreshkov it will backfire on him.

Raufeon Stots vs Magomed Magomedov

This could be the closest contest of the night – a fight between two talented grapplers.

Magomedov has made an early impression with back-to-back wins in Bellator and he could grind out a victory here.

Verdict

Mousasi and Koreshkov can be guilty of producing uninspired performances at times, but we may not see that here.

Both men can have their hand raised at Bellator 264, and we could see Magomedov continue his climb up the bantamweight ladder.

Best Bet: Winner Treble Mousasi, Koreshkov, Magomedov @104.00 at BetMGM - 1 Unit
