Bellator 133: “Manhoef vs. Shlemenko” takes place TONIGHT (Fri., Feb. 13, 2015) at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California. It’s the second of Bellator MMA’s new format of monthly shows, as “seasons” and “tournaments” are now gone.
Bellator 133 Quick Results
The main event tonight promises to be an explosive middleweight showdown. Melvin Manhoef is coming off a knockout loss to Joe Schilling at Bellator 131, and he’s looking to prove he’s still one of MMA’s most feared strikers. Shlemenko suffered an equally devastating loss to Brandon Halsey, losing his Bellator middleweight title in the process.
A win for Shlemenko would help him with his campaign for a rematch.
The rest of the card is stacked with intriguing fights. Former featherweight champion Pat Curran looks to reassert his dominance in the division facing a streaking and very game Daniel Weichel. Women’s featherweight fighter Julia Budd makes her Bellator debut against Gabrielle Holloway. Impressive wrestler and striker Chris Honeycutt moves up from the prelims to face Clayton MacFarlane.
