Bellator 137: Fight Card, Start Times For Friday Night

kendall grove

Bellator is back this Friday night, as Bellator 137 takes place from the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California.

In the Spike TV main event, Brandon Halsey puts his middleweight title on the line against Kendall Grove. Halsey, unbeaten, won the belt from Alexander Shlemenko and has fended off comments about alleged steroid use by Grove over the recent week.

Halsey (8-0) has subbed four foes and knocked out another, including two straight submission wins with Bellator. Last September, he choked out Shlemenko in just 35 seconds to claim the title.

Grove (21-14) earned his second Bellator win when he submitted Christian M’Pumbu in October. Since 2012, he is 7-4 overall with five finishes.

Also, Mike Richman meets Eduardo Dantas in a key bantamweight affair, Fernando Gonzalez squares off with Curtis Millender and Darrion Caldwell battles Rafael Silva.
