Ralek Gracie (3-0-0) vs. Hisaki Kato (7-2-0).
Gracie will be making his Bellator MMA debut in this fight and this will be his very first expert MMA fight in nearly seven years. Kato will get in the fight riding a two fight winning streak, defeating the duo of Yuta Watanabe and AJ Matthews. Gracie’s last fight came at Dream 14 in May of 2010, where he defeated Kazushi Sakuraba by consentaneous choice. Kato has only seen two of his 9 pro MMA bouts go past the first round, the longest MMA fight of his career lasted 5:34.
Predictions: Gracie hasn’t combated in a long period of time and his only opportunity is to ground Kato, however Kato has remarkable striking and he rapidly completes Gracie in the first round with strikes.
