On Friday, October 3, 2014 Bellator MMA will head to the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, CA for Bellator 127. This will be the company’s fifth event of Bellator MMA: Season Eleven and its main card will be aired live in prime time on Spike TV.

This season has been an exciting one for Bellator thus far, but this card isn’t nearly as stacked as the others fans have been treated to. With that said, Bellator is known for their ability to under-promise and over-deliver.

Scott Coker and his team know how to match fighters to make the most entertaining bouts, but there are two fighters on this card who no matter whom they face, they make for an exciting fight watching experience.

Karo Parisyan

Karo Parisyan’s career has been a roller-coaster ride, to say the least, but no matter what is going on he always brings his “A” game when that cage door closes. Since dropping his Bellator debut to Rick Hawn at Bellator 95, Parisyan has bounced back with consecutive knockout victories over Ron Keslar and Phil Baroni.

Parisyan has competed with some of the sport’s most elite fighters, and he has a number of impressive wins under his belt. Now that he is getting his personal life back in order, Parisyan looks reinvigorated in the cage and at just 32 this experienced veteran has a lot of fight left in him.

Daniel Straus

Bellator’s featherweight division is one of the most interesting divisions in all of MMA and former champion Daniel Straus is a big reason why. Between current champion Patricio Freire, former champion Pat Curran and Straus, Bellator has an exciting trio of young featherweights who will be passing the title back and forth for years to come.

Straus is coming off of a loss to Pat Curran at Bellator 112 in which he lost his title, and he is looking to rebound in impressive fashion to send a message to the Bellator brass that he is ready to fight for the title once more. Straus’ blend of speed, athleticism and wrestling make him a dangerous foe.
