This one looks like a pretty good card on paper, with several interesting fights. Co-main is Meisha Tate vs Liz "The California Kid" Carmouche, plus familiar names such as Cowboy Cerrone, Edson Barboza, Thiago Alves, Pat Healy and Khabib "Try to Pronounce it" Nurmagomedov.

Oh, by the way, with the early UFC card, if you still want to watch some fights afterward, there is another even streaming live at 10 PM ET,  It's a low-level event called Battle at the Bay VII, from Anacortes, Washington.  About half amateur and half pro fights.

The show was awful in general. Too many bad fights. My scalper was late so I missed the first 2 fights. They didn't even come close to filling the Mid America Center. The curved parts were curtained off. I'd guess maybe 2500 asses in seats out of maybe 6000 available.

Sat in front left of sec 215 which was closest to the walkout tunnel. I don't think I was ever on camera though. It was a show that was fun to heckle and to quote Macklemore "But shiat, it was .99 cents".

And that was NOT me booing.

The thing about a live show is you never hear the commentary during fights or interviews between them. They ran a commercial for the Rampage vs King Mo fight and the crowd around me lol'd when they heard it was going to be a pay per view.

I'm the only one that thinks Carmouche can beat Tate ?

Nah, I just picked the hotter one, though Liz has a much better personality.

I like live shows, but it sounds like Bellator doesn't run things well/has an inferior product (well, inferior in the sense that they're trying to compete with the big boys and not the smaller regional shows). Or maybe the arena sucked.  Bellator tends to run a lot of shows in Indian casinos instead of the bigger places.

In some ways, not hearing the commentary is a plus. You don't get the inevitable bias that would come from the commentators.  Certainly a different experience than watching it on TV.  Both are good, but in different ways.  Did the venue have plenty of screens so you could see replays? That helps a lot.  The UFC is really good with having big screens (at least at the events I've gone to.  It probably varies by location), and even a few Pro-Am events I've seen at least made an effort to put screens around the venue for the fans.

There a few big screens which helps when you have seats low enough to be obstructed by the fatass camera man. I'm pretty sure Bellator is playing to the TV audience instead of the live one. I went to both UFC shows that came to Omaha and they did try to amp up the live crowd.

Gonna miss the card until 5, hockey and chores.
 
2014-04-19 03:44:07 PM
I'll take the perfect.

Neither of those behemoths looked to be UFC caliber.  Seems like with so many shows, they're having to sign cans for the prelims.
 
2014-04-19 03:46:59 PM
I'll take two evenly matched cans like that over some ambitious lay and pray guys. That was a good fight to watch.
 
2014-04-19 03:47:59 PM
Here at the show. Made it from Jacksonville just in time for the first fight.
 
2014-04-19 03:50:57 PM
Whatever happened to Todd Duffee?
 
2014-04-19 03:51:54 PM
bah, missed the deadline.. stupid fight pass prelims..
 
2014-04-19 03:52:57 PM
also, gotta green these threads earlier
 
2014-04-19 03:54:07 PM
I'm not buying the Travis Browne hype yet. he gets elbow TKO when fools try to hold on after turning the corner on a TD against the fence. I expect Werdum to not do that. I also don't find his stand up all that.

Is Overeem actually moving to train at Jackson's MMA? Really?

Ouch.  Illegal knee

Illegal or not Bektic was gone after the first knee
 
2014-04-19 04:14:35 PM
Takes a point from Skelly.

9-9 Skelly with the deduction. 19-18 Bektic

Picking Browne to sub Werdum?  Ballsy.

You can get "Browne by sub" at +4600 in some places.

wtf?  Only 1% looking forward to Werdum and Browne yet 65% want Tate vs. Carmouche?  That's bizarre, considering one of the fights has title implications and the other would be a loser leaves town fight expect for the fact that it's such a small division they can't afford to let any of their stars go.

Richard Green (Barthelemy hometown decision in 2013) and Richard Bertrand (The old FL Ath Director) are all over this card tonight as judges.  All I got to say.

You should go all-out and call Browne Sub in round 5.
