Bellator 222 odds, predictions: Top MMA expert picks MacDonald vs. Gracie

A stylistic clash highlights the main event of Bellator 222 on Friday night as Rory MacDonald faces Neiman Gracie in the semifinals of the Welterweight World Grand Prix at Madison Square Garden.

Before you lock in your MacDonald vs. Gracie picks or Bellator 222 predictions, make sure you see what SportsLine MMA analyst Kyle Marley has to say.

Just last week at UFC 238, Marley advised SportsLine members to back Calvin Kattar (-170) against Ricardo Lamas +150 in an undercard lightweight bout.

His selections included accurately predicting that Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (+110) would pull the upset of Al Iaquinta (-130) in the main event.

Afterward, MacDonald told a stunned crowd that because of his newfound religious faith, he was struggling with the idea of continuing in a profession that forced him to hurt other human beings.

Gracie, 30, knows his name carries weight because of a family lineage that has seen thousands of pupils, amateurs and professional alike learn jiu-jitsu from one of its famed members.
