MMASucka staff picks are in for Bellator Birmingham. All of the action will take place this afternoon, May 4th, from the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, England. The four main card fights can be watched on Paramount Network through tape-delay later this evening. UFC Fight Night 151 staff picks are also up for this double-header weekend; you can check out those fights here. Due to a miscalculated date, ONE Championship picks from Friday morning’s card will not be counted this weekend. We apologize.

THE FIGHTS

In the main event, former Bellator lightweight champion Brent Primus looks to get back in the win column against England’s Tim Wilde. Primus earned the title in June of 2017 after a first-round ankle injury for Michael Chandler resulted in the fight being called off. Primus would look to defend the title against Chandler in a rematch in December but would suffer a unanimous decision loss. Wilde, a long-time competitor under European banners such as BAMMA and Cage Warriors veteran, looks to extend his current win streak to four in a row. Notable victories on his resume include the likes of Mickael Lebout, Martin Delaney, and Damien Brown.

A potential war between Derek Campos and Pedro Carvalho will take place in the co-main event slot. Campos looks to snap his two-fight losing streak while Carvalho hopes for a fifth straight victory in the past year and a half. The two remaining Bellator Birmingham fights can be found further below.

STAFF PICKS

Throughout the year, staff picks will be composed of four different MMA promotions: UFCBellatorONE, and RIZIN. Main cards will make up both UFC and Bellator picks, while the biggest fights to make up ONE and RIZIN events will be used. The WINNER of staff picks will have a choice between receiving a championship belt from ProAmBelts or a championship chain from Championship Chains. The 2018 winner was awarded to Michael DeSantis, compiling a record of 202-101.
