Fight Night 39 is a daytime event in the States due to the time difference between the US and Abu Dhabi.  The main event is Roy "Big Country" Nelson vs Antonio Rodrigo "Big Nog" Nogueira.  Also on the card are Clay Guida, Jared Rosholt and Ryan LaFlare.

Prelims stream on UFC Fight Pass at 12:15 PM ET, with the main card beginning at 2 PM ET, also on Fight Pass.

Bellator has its usual Friday evening event, featuring the heavyweight tournament semifinals, with Lavar Johnson vs Blagoi Ivanov and Alexander Volkov vs Siala "Mighty Mo" Siliga.  Prelims stream at 7 PM ET, and the main card begins at 9 PM ET on Spike TV,

I didn't realize I needed to make picks tonight, I will do Bellator later, sober. I need to get UFC Fight Pass, I feel silly that I used to gripe about east-west time zones, the company is going global. But I'll always gripe about Bellator's time slots.

I think Fight Pass is running a 7-day free trial for now, so you can check it out before you buy. Several of the "alternate" sites have been carrying the non-televised daytime events, but the picture quality and stream stability are a lot better on Fight Pass.

Bedford looks pumped
 
2014-04-11 12:25:29 PM  
Wow.  Quick KO for Bedford.  And the replay shows it was an accidental headbutt that did it.  Too late since the ref stopped it, TKO Bedford.
 
2014-04-11 12:27:06 PM  
Ah, ref figured it out and declared it a no contest
 
2014-04-11 12:28:55 PM  
Bedford is acting like an absolute tool
 
2014-04-11 12:29:12 PM  
And now Bedford is screaming that he won the fight.  Jerk.
 
2014-04-11 12:30:54 PM  
There was nothing wrong with that decision, it was the right call.  I hope Bedford calms down later on.

Ah, glad someone else is watching the daytime fights.

And here's Zombie Prophet's gif of the headbutt.

I hope after he sees a replay, he'll realize no contest was the right call.
 
2014-04-11 12:38:47 PM  
Bedford was acting like a big, stinky, brown mookystick right there.
 
2014-04-11 12:42:23 PM  
close round.  I have it 10-9 Omer
 
2014-04-11 12:43:44 PM  
Close round coudl go either way
 
2014-04-11 12:43:54 PM  
nice reversal
 
2014-04-11 12:45:39 PM  
OH SNAP
 
2014-04-11 12:45:44 PM  
This is a really fun round
 
2014-04-11 12:48:51 PM  
with the heat in the outdoor venue, the heavyweights are going to be moving in slow motion unless it's a quick KO

Another close round.  I have Alers by a hair.  19-19
 
2014-04-11 12:50:46 PM  
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
 
2014-04-11 12:55:06 PM  
10-9 Alers. 29-28 Alers, but that was a really close fight
 
2014-04-11 12:55:33 PM  
Hard to score that one, both guys had a lot of good moments

Not a good move gunning for McGregor

McGregor is a good striker but some people hype him like he's the combination of Anderson Silva, Fedor and Don Frye's mustache

True.  He's not among the elite yet, but I would say he's at least a few levels above Alers.

I agree with that.  Alers probably wants to fight a name guy because that would send him straight to the main card instead of prelims

Plus I think Alers was looking to fight Mcgregor before Conor left Cage Warriors for the UFC

Leites has got to be a huge favorite today

Yep, just checked... they were scheduled to fight in Dec 2012.  Alers had to pull out with a hand injury.

2009 me can't imagine that there's a scenario where Big Nog gets cut.

Well, for Roy, "shape" is relative.  But yeah, he looks a bit less tubby than usual.

I like Big Country.  He's fun to watch, except for the few fights he gassed hard.

Phil Davis vs Rumble could be a fun fight
 
2014-04-11 01:28:55 PM  
Yep.  He's blowing out his arms while Rosholt works the body.
 
2014-04-11 01:31:33 PM  
10-9 Rosholt
 
2014-04-11 01:37:12 PM  
was he planning to sit down into guard, or is he just exhausted?
 
2014-04-11 01:37:48 PM  
10-9 Rosholt.  20-18
 
2014-04-11 01:44:14 PM  
10-9 Rosholt.  30-27.

Not exciting, but effective
 
2014-04-11 01:50:57 PM  
Refs need to make more standups in fights like that.  Rosholt did virtually nothing while on top.

Klippoklondike: Bedford is acting like an absolute tool


Takeaway from that fight is Bedford is an asshole.
 
2014-04-11 02:07:53 PM  
Darn it.  Was sitting here waiting for the main card to start, before I realized fight pass had a separate feed for the main card.  Didn't miss anything though.
