UFC and Bellator overlap tonight, so there should be fights from 4:30 PM ET to around midnight ET.

The UFC Fight Night is pretty weak.  It was originally supposed to be Meisha Tate vs Ketlen Vieria, then that was cancelled a few weeks ago when Tate got COVID.  Then it was Holly Holm vs Dumont, but Holm got a knee injury 10 days ago, so they put in Aspen Ladd, who had a fight cancelled at bantamweight two weeks ago for a bad weight cut.  This one is at 145, so she made weight.

There have been numerous other cancelations and changes in the past few weeks, including a fight dropping off yesterday for unspecified non-COVID health reasons.  At the moment, there are 10 fights remaining. The biggest name is old man Arlovski in the co-main.

Interestingly, Loopy Godinez is fighting again, after winning a fight just last week.

Then there's Bellator 268, including the light heavyweight tournament semifinals, with Nemkov vs Anglikas and Ryan Bader vs Corey Anderson.

An oddity is former WEC and UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson is fighting on the main card while his wife Maria (who has a 1-0 record) is fighting in the first prelim.

If anyone is interested this early, there's an event from Russia currently airing live on Pluto TV channel 726.

There was a bunch of domestic violence-related MMA news this week.  Jon Jones was temporarily banned from the Jackson-Winklejohn gym until he straightens up, Chuck Liddell was arrested for domestic violence and then filed for divorce, and Luis Pena (Violent Bob Ross) was arrested for domestic violence and then cut from the UFC.

In happier news:

Looks like it will finally be happening on November 5th.

I'm not confident in my card at all.  But with the canceled fights and being short $100 for the card I wanted, I had to make some improvisations.

There will be No Nonsense in this fight.  Keith is on the job.

... Canrnelossi's taking us to the gun show

Hey FFFFU Crew!
WEAK card tonight today, but sometimes those are the most entertaining...regardless, YAY DAY DRUNK!  I'm eating some Chinese, leaving most for later then pouring me some DRANKS!

Agarista: never understood gambling


Thank GOD it's not one of my (too many) vices - even though my some of my vices have vices, too, such as my Drinking Smokes.  Crappy luck is good for something because it means I don't even bother gambling!

Carnelossi is a tank.
 
2021-10-16 4:45:28 PM  
You don't often see shoulders like that on a woman.
 
2021-10-16 4:48:24 PM  
very close.  slight edge to Nunes 10-9
 
2021-10-16 4:50:33 PM  
Many fences were grabbed this day.

LOL, I kept reading that as "Camel-Toesi" and now I find it's a woman! xD
Holy shiat!  That woman is farking DIESEL!

Anyway, first Kodi plugin was being a biatch.  Second one found a stream but it's a bit behind a certain stream of.....shall we say Crystal Blue Persuasion? (you're welcome for the earworm!)

I'm always a little more skittish about betting on the women, because I feel like there are more upsets there at the lower levels.

The biceps are what are super impressive to me. I have a friend who is a bodybuilder and she is ripped, but looks nothing like Carnelossi.

another close one  10-9 Carnelossi    19-19

For sure, they usually get lots of points tho so that was my angle on this one.  The card this week was tricky.
 
2021-10-16 4:55:53 PM  
Even Bisping and Fitzgerald dont sound very enthusiastic about this card.

That's true. A lot more wrestling usually.

Her biceps are indeed impressive, but GOD DAMN! Her shoulders are so big, she ain't got NO NECK!!!

Like I've said MANY a time:  "I find it oddly sexy if a chick can kick my ass two out of three times" but the corollary is "3 out of 3 times is RIGHT THE FARK OUT!"
 
2021-10-16 4:59:00 PM  
She was about to pop her head right off there.
 
2021-10-16 5:02:20 PM  
Carnelossi did well to get the sub.  If it had gone to decision, the scores could have been all over the place.

That's pretty cool - The Mongolian Fighter moved on from one of the singles to some B side by The Hu.

Came REALLY close to trying this Chinese place's Mongolian Beef but they had it listed as super spicy for some reason.  I ain't a'feared of spice, but usually Mongolian Beef just...ain't!

/Ended up ordering Peppered Beef and while it's SUPER tasty, it doesn't really have the consistency of beef...

I can't get past how Arlovski's dribbling Silva's head like a basketball in that promo clip.

Wait, I saw Batgirl's KO then I did my 20 pushups, then I immediately went to switch out the water filter on the fridge-a-ma-rator.  Was there another fight that I missed???

Nope, just talking to fill time after a quick finish

No, it's been promo clips and vignettes and such.

LOL - EVERY woman in that division may as well have the qualifier added "and lost to Amanda Nunes".  May as well have a Champ*** of the Division! ***Not including Amanda Nunes xD
 
2021-10-16 5:30:16 PM  
Excellent!  Thank ye kindly, fellas!  I chose....wisely for a change!  I figured after 2 very quick finishes that there'd be time to kill...

I don't know the ladders in the various divisions, so when they were doing the "she's got the makings of a potential champion in the future" my first thought was "sure I can see that as long as she doesn't have to fight Amanda Nunes, who will shred her down to atoms."

Yes, I distinctly recall Loopy Godinez winning against a woman with some TIG ol' bitties last week!  What promotion was that in?

Flipped on the baseball game during the intermission. 

Sox up 8-0 in Bot 2. 2 grand slams. lol.

ARGH!  How grossly disappointing!  I've no whiskey left!  The chip's bottle side means only Voddy n Sprite this week.  Gonna have to re up all my supplies for next week...

/OH MY!  Who the hell was that giving Brittany a run for her money?!?

Muay Thai girl has a big size advantage. Let's see if she can use it.

It didn't even look like she tried to keep it at range. She seems pretty clueless in general.
