Welterweights kick off festivities, as Verchere (5-1) collides with
a fellow Bellator debutant in Camara (4-1) at 170 pounds. Mike
Beltran serves as your referee. The two men tap gloves, as they
ease their feet in to their respective accelerators. Verchere
staggers Camara with a left hook, then another, and establishes his
superiority on the feet early. Despite his five-inch reach
advantage, Camara fails to manage distance. Verchere mixes in leg
kicks and overhand rights to keep his countryman off-balance.
Camara backs Verchere to the fence with left hook-right cross
combinations and starts to gain a foothold in the match. In an
instant, Camara throws out a left hook and sends a straight right
crashing into his counterpart’s face. Verchere collapses to the
canvas in a dazed state and eats more punches, prompting Beltran to
act on his behalf.
