Despite losing the main event the day before the show, Bellator 150 still trudges on with a card that is still worth checking out. The event will now be headlined by a heavyweight division bout as Cheick Kongo battles Vinicius Queiroz. Also, David Rickels faces Bobby Cooper and a pair of female flyweights will be kicking off the main card.

Queiroz has only competed once in the last two-plus years, which was a win over Ewerton Teixeira at Bellator 143. Kongo will want to hold Queiroz against the cage wall and decimate him with strikes on route to a decision, which is exactly what will happen.
