Don’t overlook Gaston Bolanos, Keri Melendez to open Bellator 206

There are some big names on tonight’s Bellator 206 card, so it might be tempting to overlook the first couple fights on the main card.

That, though, probably would be a mistake. You may not know a ton about Keri Melendez and Gaston Bolanos given their relative pro inexperience, but they’re potential future Bellator stars for a reason.

Melendez (2-0 MMA, 2-0 BMMA), the wife of former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez, takes on Dakota Zimmerman (1-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) in a women’s strawweight bout. And Bolanos (3-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) opens up the main card in a featherweight fight against Ysidro Gutierrez (3-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA).

Ahead of their bouts, check out some of Melendez’s early career highlights in the video above. Below, check out the ridiculous spinning back elbow that put Bolanos on the map – in super slow-motion.

Then don’t miss Bellator 206, which takes place tonight at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. The main card streams on DAZN following prelims on MMAjunkie.
