Pitbull was victorious as a -180 favorite while Couture was a +168 dog. In the opening bout of the main card, light heavyweights Tony Johnson Jr and Raphael Butler slogged it out for nearly the full three rounds. Johnson Jr was the superior wrestler and he wore on Butler, eventually wilting the former boxer as the ref stopped the fight with about 30 seconds left with Johnson Jr draped over Butler on the ground near the fence.

Bellator 148 Underdogs that Won In the co-main event of the evening, veteran Paul Bradley derailed top prospect Chris Honeycutt’s hype train with a shocking first minute TKO. This bout was a rematch of a no contest from 2015 which had ended in the second round due to a headbutt. This time, however, Bradley clipped Honeycutt early, then hurt him badly as he got back to his feet and swarmed the previously undefeated fighter with punches until the ref put a halt to the action. Bradley surprised onlookers as a +325 underdog while Honeycutt lost at -360.
