Bellator prelims link:  http://www.bellator.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=23600&ATCLID=20539 4 931&KEY=

Can't find the link at Spike.com . Don't know if I'm just missing it, or if they wait until closer to show time to post it,

Might have overthought things.  I ended up taking quite a few underdogs.

Aaaarrrgh! That's what I'm trying not to do right now.

I know. I've been in a slump lately precisely because I talk myself out of my gut feeling.

Tonight is the night I'll be bumped out of the competition.

I had forgotten you were leading in the Bellator Season 8 competition. Good luck. You have a 200 point lead with four events remaining. Still a long way to go, but leading at the halfway point is a good start.

My crappy picks for Bellator 87 put me way down the list.

Yeah, it caused me to overthink and second-guess my picks. The 200 point lead could be helpful because I don't feel all that confident with my picks.

You'd have to have monumentally bad picks to drop out of the top 5 tonight , though, so the only 8 fight card works in your favor,

Oh, I finally registered at Sherdog after 5 years of lurking. I wanted to wait until the place got less derpy, but after 5 years I decided it just ain't gonna happen so screw it I'll sign up.

Sherdog is the /b/ of MMA discussion.


May Helio Gracie have mercy on your soul

There are a few people there who make good discussions, but they're outnumbered by the morons.

Is there a good reason to join Sherdog? I'm honestly asking, I only know of the forums there and they are full of some serious jackasses.

I joined a few years ago. The forum section is a cesspool, but the articles on the main page are OK. You don't need to join to see those.

Occasionally Sherdog will do a live stream of an MMA card. I don't remember if you need to join to see it, though.

Did this kid's mom sign a permission slip so he could fight tonight ?

Spike.com now has the prelim stream link.  http://www.spike.com/shows/bellator-mma/live/

Don't see it mentioned here, but UFC won in court a few hours ago and will now be able to hold events in the state of New York effective immediately. They'll have to use third-party sanctioning, but the November event (rematch of Weidman/Silva after Weidman smashes him) looks to be a go.
 
2013-02-14 07:39:24 PM
... the November event will be at MSG, is UFC's 20th anniversary event.

What do you guys think of Sean Wheelock-Jimmy Smith?  Probably my favorite mma broadcasting team.
 
2013-02-14 08:04:29 PM
This one must have been a late-notice fight to fill out the card.

They're pretty good. I prefer Rogan and Goldie, though. And Duke Roufus was cool the few times I've heard him call fights.
 
2013-02-14 08:08:15 PM
10-9 for the poorly-tattooed Maldonado.

I'll forever be a fan of Todd Harris-Frank Mir back in WEC.  Not that Harris was anything special, but Mir taught me more about MMA than any other commentator I've ever heard.

I'd like to hear Dominic Cruz call a fight. He's really goox at explaining things in the studio.

I'd love to see more of Mir as a commentator.  As far as ex-UFC fighters commentating, he's my favorite, then Sonnen, then Bonnar, and way way way last is Florian.
 
2013-02-14 08:15:04 PM
Make that good, not goox.

10-9 Maldonado. 20-18. Can't believe he didn't sink that RNC that Goodwin gave him so easily.
 
2013-02-14 08:18:11 PM
Nice spin to his back.
 
2013-02-14 08:21:04 PM
10-9 Maldonado. 30-27. Not very exciting. Goodwin had nothing.
 
2013-02-14 08:30:29 PM
10-9 Mierzwiak. Interested to see if Buck limps.
 
2013-02-14 08:34:10 PM
These prelim guys are trying, but they've got a lot to work on skillwise.
 
2013-02-14 08:35:47 PM
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
 
2013-02-14 08:36:43 PM
10-9 Buck. 19-19
 
2013-02-14 08:38:20 PM
NUTSHOT!
 
2013-02-14 08:41:38 PM
This is a good round
 
2013-02-14 08:43:35 PM
10-9 Buck. 29-28 Buck.
 
2013-02-14 08:45:04 PM

psychicdeath99: 10-9 Buck. 29-28 Buck.


Agreed.  The grappling was fun to watch.
 
2013-02-14 08:46:32 PM
What was the controversy?

I missed it.

And the judges even got it right. Three clear rounds, first for Mierzwiak, last two for Buck.

libranoelrose: What was the controversy?

I missed it.


In the first, Buck was in a leglock. Jimmy Smith thought the ref asked him if he was OK. Buck shook his head no and the fight continued. Turns out the ref actually aked Buck if he was done... so a no answer makes more sense.
 
2013-02-14 08:52:56 PM
Sweet freaking pass!
 
2013-02-14 08:54:05 PM
10-9 Pacheco
 
2013-02-14 08:54:54 PM
LOL HOLY SHIAT, that cornerman is pissed
 
2013-02-14 08:55:33 PM
Was that cornerman an NCO at some point? Sounded just like a few sergeants I've known.
 
2013-02-14 08:59:28 PM
Oh Snap!
 
2013-02-14 08:59:42 PM
Elbows put his lights out.
