Bellator 149, which is one of the promotion's "tentpole" events, will be taking place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas this weekend.

For some, Bellator 149 is a "freak show" card featuring some fights that really don't need to happen (namely, Royce Gracie vs Ken Shamrock). For others, Bellator 149 will be an entertaining night of fights featuring some very recognizable names.

The co-main event of the card will pit Kimbo Slice against DADA5000, aka Dhafir Harris. Both fighters made their names in the backyard fighting world, and both fighters have had limited success in the world of professional mixed martial arts. Kimbo Slice enters this fight with a professional MMA record of 5-2, while Dhafir Harris has even less experience with a professional record of 2-0, with his wins coming over the unheralded Tim Papp and Cedric James.

Harris and Slice have a very healthy dislike for each other, which has added to the fight. In addition, there is no question that the fight will be contested on the feet, as neither man has anything even remotely resembling a ground game. Having said that, there are some who think that Slice might use his experience advantage (I use that term lightly) to try to take Harris to the ground, where Harris will likely have absolutely nothing to offer.

Based on his experience advantage, Kimbo Slice (aka Kevin Ferguson) is the clear favourite to win on Saturday night:

Kimbo Slice, -450
Dhafir Harris, +325

According to these odds, a successful $450 wager on Slice would yield a total return of $100, while a successful $100 bet on Harris would return a total profit of $325.

If you can find a sports book that is offering an over/under 1.5 rounds on this fight, I would slam the under, as there is virtually no chance that this fight will last more than a round. Both men are going to be swinging for the fences early, and there is a very good chance that one of the two men will connect and end the fight within a couple of minutes.

Given how the fight is likely to play out, I think that Harris at +325 has some insane value.
