God tito is so annoying. Everytime he talks I cringe, stg I hit mute halfway thru his post fight interview.

Liam vs davis is an interesting fight, I predict a close 5 rd battle
post #12992 of 34212
Looks like fedor actually signed to bellator that card last night caught a little bit was very entertaining
post #12993 of 34212
Liam slick as hell off his back. Tito is just WAY out of his league trying to compete today.

Wrestling is his weak spot so Davis will be tough and Davis is not an easy sub if memory serves. Though I can barely remember any of his fights laugh.gif

Could Fedor make LHW? Wasn't there some talk of that since he's slimmed down? He looked lean last night.

I thought he signed to Bellator too but he didn't. He signed with an upstart organization

 

Disappointed to say the least that he couldn't work it out to sign with the UFC. Would have been cool

post #12995 of 34212
That was strange. Coker came in at the end but it looked like another org, announcing their launch and partnership with Spike, in the middle of a Bellator card.

So I'm guessing Coker/Bellator are involved and there is some cross promotion potential?

Or dude from Pride and his org will be Bellator International kind of? So they can start doing overseas cards.

So Fedor would still fight Bellator fighters if so.

Curious to see how it all unfolds.
post #12996 of 34212
Probably doing something similar to how Strikeforce and Dream used to let fighters fight in between both orgs, like with Diaz, Overeem, Aoki, etc.

What they really need is the right scouting though. Coker did a great job with the talent he got into Strikeforce back in the day. Hopefully he can do it again with Bellator.

I have less confidence in the Pride owner being able to make big fights but who knows, he could make things interesting too if his bankroll is big enough.
post #12997 of 34212

seeing both the cage and ring was cool

 

weird seeing thomson there, went from fighting the top of the top at the highest level to fighting some nobody

Pride had great talent back then. Especially on the international circuit.

So the guy probably has a great network if he did good business.

I think what you said is kind of what's in play here. Maybe if he has the $$ behind him, they think he can do great things for them overseas.

LOL bellator's LHW has nothing to offer for Davis. He will be reigning champ until some ex-top 10 UFC comes through. If UFC does not do something w/ this whole reebok deal, we're gonna see alot of fighters not renewing their contracts when it's up. That's why this whole Diaz fiasco is ****** up and we need the whole MMA community to rise against that. UFC is headed into a weird direction right now.

And who tf is fighting fedor? what heavyweight is gonna even step in there and give him a fight? Ain't no heavyweight relevant outside the UFC :lol

post #13000 of 34212
Which is exactly why I'm wondering if Fedor can fight at LHW.

Never been a Davis fan.

So I'm happy to see him fight McGeary and Lawal and prove he's even minor league championship caliber as an MMA fighter for all that talking he was doing when he was in the majors.

I'm just now watching the Bellator event. Lots of big names in the house. Gil, GSP (coaching), Cain

 

Not really hyped for the next UFC card at all (Nelson vs Barnett)

YO. Faber WENT OFF on Ludwig today. JESUS. Said dude has racist tendencies and every thing else. I can't imagine this going over well with TJ

Give me a time stamp on the shade pa, not trying to listen to 77 mins.

There is literally so much. But if you scroll down, it's all in the article. Granted, it's a long *** read :lol

 

Basically, according to Faber, Ludwig is

 

-Racist ("jokingly" told blacks to get in the back of the line, told blacks to stay 25 feet away from all females)

-A bully (put hands on a UFC exec for not getting him free tickets and guilt trips fighters into giving him their bonuses)

-Unstable when it comes to contracts and money

-Unreliable (would leave at weeks at a time to do seminars outside of the team)

-Charged fighters for private lessons, including TJ

-Was bitter when Faber didn't get him any sponsors

-Cried daily, like literally cried to Faber whether he was happy, mad or sad

Bellator usually gets 892,000 viewers but he only got 800,000 for last weekend's card

I bounced back and forth between that and the Mayweather/Berto replay.

Maybe I wasn't the only one?

Not surprising, he's probably been cheating most of his career. Look at his body in those old clips of him fighting Wandy. Ridiculous :lol

 

Plus look at how close he came to beating Bones, he ripped his arm out

 

Dana probably didn't care as much back then. Now if that stuff happens it's a problem

I'm positive he used steroids in those days, but I'm sure 95 percent of em did. Cuz of that I think he got on trt
His trainer from those days was on stuff and died as a result of iy, I think rogan mentioned it before

Far as the armbar that was just jones being lazy with his arm, more so technique and experience but he did look jacked in that fight too
