Bellator 138 Betting Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, heavyweight Kombo Slice scored a come-from-behind TKO victory against a game Ken Shamrock.

Kimbo closed at -240 (Bet $240 to win $100) while Shamrock lost at +220 (Bet $100 to win $220). In a featherweight title bout, Patricio Pitbull defended his belt with a vicious second round knockout of Daniel Weichel. Weichel started very strong, winning the first round after hurting then dropping Pitbull before the champ was saved by the bell. The Brazilian bounced back, however, and floored Weichel early in the second round to retain the title. Pitbull won at -240 while Weichel lost at +220. In heavyweight action, Bobby Lashley pounded late replacement Dan Charles via second round TKO. Lashley repeatedly took Charles down and worked him over with strikes on the canvas, eventually finishing him mercifully before the third round could begin. Lashley closed at -570 while Charles was a +480 dog. In featherweight bout, former champion Daniel Straus handed Henry Corrales his first career loss. Straus handily won the first round, even dropping Corrales and then he finished the fight in the second after again hurting his opponent. Straus transitioned from body triangle to arm triangle to a guillotine to eventually force the tap. Straus closed as a -420 favorite while Corrales was a +375 underdog. In the opening bout of the main card, former lightweight champion Michael Chandler completely dominated Derek Campos in a crushing first round submission victory. Chandler found his range quickly, showcased improved striking defense and then pounced on Campos with a strong wrestling attack before latching on a rear naked choke to force the tap. Chandler closed at -605 while Campos finished at +505.
