Yes, you read the title right: Bellator staff picks are now apart of MMASucka for 2018!

Later tonight, January 20th, Bellator 192 takes place from The Forum in Inglewood, California for their first promotional event of the year. The main event features the kick-off of the Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix eight-main tournament, seeing long-time veterans Rampage Jackson and Chael Sonnen battle in the first quarterfinal pairing.

The co-main event sees a battle between two of the best 170-pound fighters on the planet, champion Douglas Lima and challenger Rory MacDonald, for the Bellator Welterweight Championship.

The WINNER of staff picks will have a chance to receive a custom-made championship belt from ProAmBelts following completion of the 2018 calendar year! The 2017 winner was awarded to Wesley Riddle, compiling a record of 118-74 for main card fights. A visual of the potential-earned belt will be shown in a future staff picks article.

This year, our Bellator staff picks will come into play in part with UFC picks.

Check out our MMASucka main card staff picks for Bellator 192 below, as well as current records in 2018.
