Samba Coulibaly vs Mihail Nica
Mihail Nica will be putting his undefeated 5-0 record on the line in his Bellator debut, however instead of facing his original challenger, the 6-0 Carrington Banks, Nica will now be dealing with the 11-4 Samba Coulibaly. Nica has yet to see a 3rd round in his young professional career, and by young, I suggest all 5 of his pro fights took place throughout 2016. Will Nica make a splash on the big stage and keep his ‘0’ intact?
Samba Coulibaly has a significant chance to gain some direct exposure, as he will be actioning in on brief to deal with Mihail Nica on the Bellator 176 main card. With 6 of his 11 wins coming over way of submission, do not anticipate Coulibaly to shy away from the ground game. Having 3-times as many professional fights to his credit than does his challenger, can Coulibaly pull from his experience, and offer the Bellator light-weight division something to consider?
