MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Bellator 159 lightweight David Rickels as he prepares for his upcoming co-main event this Friday night (July 22, 2016) against Melvin Guillard at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kansas.
The lightweight veteran knows his opponent has experienced a rough patch, and he’s certainly not going to be taking him lightly:
“On this one, I’ve been out at Team Elevation. I did six weeks straight this time. The mindset we have going into this fight is to be ready for 15 minutes and most likely that’s not going to happen, but we plan on a 15-minute battle. Plan on the best Melvin Guillard and prepare for war.”
