Didn't even know there was a card tonight, guess I'm something of a Zuffa fanboy.

You have just under two hours to make some picks for Bellator. If you want to.

I only know 2 guys on the card, would just be throwing mud at a wall.

Same here. I know the Bellator guys train and fight hard, but it's like watching the minor league of a pro sport.

Thank you modmins for greenlighting well before the prelims start. I hope this becomes a trend on fight nights.

Pretty much. But much like watching minor league baseball, it can still be a lot of fun. Bellator is like AAA ball: a mix of journeymen who will never make the bigs, those who were in the majors but are on the ends of their careers, and young prospects who might make it some day.

Even the smaller promotions (like NAAFS here in Ohio) can put on exciting fights. No UFC level fighters, but still lots of fun to watch.

I want the Gono who submitted Mousasi and decisioned Lombard to show up

I can't remember the odds but that would be a pretty big upset.

Where else are the up and comers going to get the experience ? When you see the new guys on TUF that already have 5-10 pro fights to their name they got them in places like Bellator, Victory Fighting and Gladiator challenge. Support your local cagefighting league if you have one and you might get to be an MMA hipster and claim you've seen the last season's winner of TUF before he became famous. Then you can hate on him for selling out and being popular.

O'grady kinda sucks on the ground.

uh.. nevermind.

Nice transition to the armbar. Thought he was going to run out of time.
 
2012-05-04 07:18:01 PM  
Being dismissive of your opponent is often a recipe for losing.
 
2012-05-04 07:19:05 PM  
I'm looking forward to this one.
 
2012-05-04 07:24:52 PM  
Not so dismissive now is he ?
 
2012-05-04 07:28:45 PM  
Good sprawl for a kickboxer


France surrenders pwns
 
2012-05-04 07:28:47 PM  
Yeah, you weren't getting that takedown.
 
2012-05-04 07:28:56 PM  
Taleb swarmed all over him. Nice TKO.
 
2012-05-04 07:31:10 PM  
Taleb is a dead ringer for Shane on TWD
 
2012-05-04 07:32:57 PM  
I'm liking the way they don't waste any time starting the next fight. I wish the UFC was this fast paced.
 
2012-05-04 07:35:56 PM  
LMAO. It always amuses me when fighters complain that their opponents refuse to fight to their preferred style.

Oh, and Big John McCarthy rocks.
 
2012-05-04 07:44:13 PM  
Nelson's left leg is going to get kicked off into the crowd.

violentsalvation: Nelson's left leg is going to get kicked off into the crowd.


At the very least he will be unable to walk for several days.
 
2012-05-04 07:48:52 PM  
If he's lucky he'll qualify for handicapped parking
 
2012-05-04 07:49:03 PM  
Holy shiat look at that knee!
 
2012-05-04 07:49:53 PM  
Oh jeez. That knee is farked.
 
2012-05-04 07:53:28 PM  
Nelson gets credit for toughing it out, but then Alexandre never really went for the KO.
 
2012-05-04 08:10:03 PM  
I wonder where everybody else is at.
 
2012-05-04 08:10:49 PM  
Whoa! 50-7-1

Maybe forgot, since there was no Bellator last week.

Or possibly watching basketball playoffs or Avengers...

Friday is not a good night in general west coasters are still driving home and a lot of the Fark MMA crowd are TUF noobs. If it ain't UFC it doesn't exist.
 
2012-05-04 08:21:09 PM  
Yeah, it's true, some people pretty much dismiss Bellator as not good enough, and also the start time sucks out west.
 
2012-05-04 08:22:38 PM  
What did I miss?

I am still here, just took a phone call. I'm looking for the Saunders fight, i always liked his style. He's got some badass muay thai.
 
2012-05-04 08:23:31 PM  
HEY! there are HD Net fights on tonight too, now I'm glad this started early.

Wow. That was a big surprise. Ford gets the k
nockout after being dominated in the first.

Santos should have been more aggressive instead of coasting when he had him hurt.

The prelims were pretty good. Some of the upcoming fights look interesting.

He's going to regret not taking his back. It was wide open for 2 whole minutes.

Oh, and a knee swollen like a grapefruit due to multiple leg kicks from hell. Hope they replay that one during the main card.

Yep. The rear naked choke was there for yhe taking, with lots of time to sink it in.

Yeah I wanna see that.

Gonna be in and out of this thread. The woman is leaving for Scotland tomorrow, gonna be spending some time with her.

Grabowski moving straight back is a mistake. Side movement!
