Bellator is back in Oklahoma for the first of back-to-back shows this week, and a middleweight fight headlines the card.

Bellator 210 takes place Friday at WinStar World Casino & Resort in Thackerville, Okla. The main card airs on Paramount and streams on DAZN following prelims on MMAjunkie.

(Click here to open a PDF of the staff picks grid in a separate window.)

In the main event, Chidi Njokuani (18-5 MMA, 5-1 BMMA) stays at 185 pounds to take on John Salter (15-4 MMA, 5-1 BMMA). Despite Njokuani’s recent win in the weight class, it’s Salter with a fairly big 9-4 lead in the picks from our 13 MMAjunkie editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers.

In the co-feature, Bellator veteran and fan favorite David Rickels (19-5 MMA, 13-5 BMMA) takes on Bomba Vasconcelos (10-5 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) at lightweight. “Caveman” Rickels is carrying an 8-5 lead in our picks.

Also on the main card, Juan Archuleta (19-1 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) is a near unanimous choice over Jeremy Spoon (21-4 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) in their featherweight bout. Only one brave picker is going with Spoon. And to open the main card, Kristina Williams (2-1 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) has a big 9-4 lead over Bruna Ellen (4-1 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) in the picks for their women’s featherweight bout.

In the MMAjunkie reader consensus picks, Njokuani (62 percent), Rickels (75 percent), Archuleta (85 percent) and Ellen (54 percent) are the choices.

Check out all the picks above.
