MMAjunkie reader predictions: Make your picks for Bellator NYC at Madison Square Garden

We want your predictions for this week’s Bellator NYC event in New York City.

In late 2015, we expanded upon our traditional staff picks to include the consensus picks from MMAjunkie readers. Simply cast your vote for each bout below, and we’ll use the official tallies that are registered by Thursday at noon ET (9 a.m. PT).

Those MMAjunkie MMA reader consensus picks will be part of the Bellator NYC staff picks we release on Friday ahead of the event. Bellator NYC takes place Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The main card airs on pay-per-view following the Bellator 180 portion on Spike and MMAjunkie.
