Bellator 252 Slate Includes Four of New England's Finest

Travis Lizotte "Full Contact Writer"

Once again, with fight day now less than 24 hours away, we check in to the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut as the tenant Bellator MMA continues to unleash star studded fight cards week after week. This week we find ourselves back in the saddle at Bellator 252 with the resumption of the Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix set to headline a talent rich fight card, littered with some familiar New England talent. New England fans set your alarms for 4 pm as Bellator 252 prelims will begin on the Bellator MMA YouTube Channel as Autumn welcomes the fitting return of Trevor "Scarecrow" Gudde (1-1) who will make his long awaited Bellator MMA debut against the man with the legendary lineage; Khonry Gracie (2-1) in a Welterweight preliminary bout. Cage Titans FC Standout Trevor Gudde has had Gracie's name in his cross-hairs for a few months now as Gracie was forced to withdraw from their original bout scheduled for Bellator 245 in September, forcing Gudde to postpone his clash with the son of Legendary; Royce Gracie, until tomorrow night.

Gudde told our Steve Domenico on The Room Podcast he is "So ready for this" adding, "even when it was rescheduled we were like; 'alright,fine, whatever, lets do this' as long a Bellator still wants us as long as its the same name, let's do this." Gudde went on to mention that he is a high level Brown Belt in BJJ and would not be afraid to test himself on the ground with the man who bears the founding blood of the sport. This is quite a big spot for Boston's Gudde, as a victory over the famed Gracie could send his stock into orbit both here on the local scene as well as nationally.
