    Bellator Fighting Championships

    The all things Bellator thread..




    Really stoked for season 3 of Bellator to start. Got 4 title fights this season and 3 new tournaments in the 205 & 135 lb divisions for men and 115 lb division for women.

    The very first Bellator Fight I saw was a few weeks ago. Somebody dislocated their knee so badly that it looked like their shin slid up their thigh. it was pretty nasty.

    I'm watching it right now... I'm always glad to find MMA to watch in addition to the UFC. The women fighting they've shown in these last couple of weeks have been really exciting as well (Also nice to see female MMA fighting that wasn't Gina Carano.)

    I tend to stick to TV events when watching MMA so WEC and Bellator have introduced me to some new things MMA-wise.

    They've done a really good job of finding really talented fighters that aren't in bigger organizations. They've definitely created some serious prospects for the sport.

    Neil Grove has been added to the heavyweight tournament and Hector Lombard will have another non-title fight @ Bellator 24 (im surprised he's not tired from his 8 second win over Jay Silva lol).. against Herbert Goodman (?) .. whoever that is.

    15-8 record, pretty experienced. Biggest win is against Jordan Radev I guess. Should be a fairly easy night of work for Lombard.



    Beast..

    God he really is a beast. I'd love to see him get to fight some better MWs .. as much as I don't want Strikeforce to corrupt Bellator with their shit philosophy on MMA, I'd like to see Lombard beat on some of their MWs.

    Carter only fights cans and has a terrible record against them. I don't think I've ever heard of Torrance Taylor but my money's on him.

    I know, right? Lol. I'm sure that's what will happen. Bellator's been so good at finding this underground talent. This guy could be a total badass and Carter would never know.

    No-one would ever know; who the hell is he. At this point I'm fairly sure I'd beat Shonie Carter.

    Oh dear.

    He's 4-4 and on a 2 fight lose streak. How the hell does he get on Strikeforce?

    Well Jason Dent and Fabrcio Camoes aren't bad losses, but I've never heard of any of those other guys .. cuz Strikeforce is ran by chimpanzees.

    Bellator HW tourney shaping up ..

    Eddie Sanchez (12-3 MMA, 2-0 BFC)
    Scott Barrett (10-1 MMA, 1-0 BFC)
    Damian Grabowski (12-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC)
    Neil Grove (8-2-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC)
    Mike Hayes (12-3-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC)
    Rogent Lloret (9-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC)

    2 more spots to fill.

    Lyman Good was voted the Bellator champ most likely to lose his title .. that's who I voted for too. Askren is gonna grapple fuck his face. These results are pretty spot-on I'd say:

    56% = Welterweight Lyman Good
    23% - Featherweight Joe Soto
    12% - Lightweight Eddie Alvarez
    9% - Middleweight Hector Lombard

    Yup. Can't see Shlemenko having anything to offer against Lombard except 250 spinning kicks/punches.

    Soto/Warren and Alvarez/Curran should be the closest fights for sure. Good is a strong dude with some powerful striking so he could catch Askren, odds are he will be dry-humped to death though.

    Yeah, there's a good chance that Soto will have the same fate as Lyman. Warren and Askren are basically the same fighter.

    Curran doesn't seem like he should have a chance against Alvarez, but he shouldn't have had a chance against Huerta or Imada .. so who the hell knows ?

    I think Curran the younger has looked really solid. I doubt he can keep up with Eddie though.

    I'm not sure he can either, but I can't wait to find out for sure. That DREAM arcticle about expansion had someone from DREAM saying he thinks that Bellator won't be around much longer. I hope that's just BS talk. They've been putting on good fights and really showcasing some new talent.

    As much as I love them I think there's a bigger chance of DREAM going under before Bellator does. Japanese promotors will say that they're doing great and is ready to take over the world right up until they go bankrupt.

    Speaking of Japan..

    Yoshiyuki Yoshida has signed a three fight deal with Bellator. He will make his debut Aug 19 against Dan Hornbuckle. Tough first fight for sure.

    Brock Lesnar's training partner, Cole Konrad is no.7 for the HW tourney. Makes sense. He has won 2 non-tourney bouts for them. One spot left.

    Eddie Sanchez (12-3 MMA, 2-0 BFC)
    Scott Barrett (10-1 MMA, 1-0 BFC)
    Damian Grabowski (12-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC)
    Neil Grove (8-2-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC)
    Mike Hayes (12-3-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC)
    Rogent Lloret (9-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC)
    Kole Conrad (4-0 MMA, 2-0 BFC)

    LOMBARD and arguably the best pound for pound female in Fujii both fighting, should be good.

    Honestly, Grove/Sanchez should be good .. neither are really all that amazing, but they match up well.

    Apparently Pat Curran is injured, so Roger Huerta is gonna step in and fight Eddie Alvarez in a non-title fight @ Bellator 33

    That's an exciting fight and if Huerta can pull the win, he surely sets himself up to face the winner of Curran/Alvarez whenver it happens.

    Joe Soto vs Joe Warren is where its at for me. Love Warren and his fantastic wrestling. He fought Bibiano Fernandez in Dream and was caught in the deepest arm bar i have seen. They stopped the fight, but he wouldnt tap.

    Roger has an outstanding record and yes he is coming off of a loss, but it's not like he was finished or destroyed. He has major publicity behind him and was recently on TMZ shown defending a woman and doing something that every man in America wants to do: beat the living fuck out of an asshole who hit a woman.

    Bellator easily could have given Roger a title shot, but he didn't earn it. He didn't win the tournament and he is coming off of a loss. This is why Bellator's title's mean more than Strikeforce titles.

    Crushed him. Those last couple shots were murder death kill lol.

    I would definitely pay to see this guy against some of the more well known fighters in his weight class. Get some more world wide experience, hop over to Japan and then go to the UFC. I like Bellator, but they don't have the depth...not taking anything away from dude but it's not like he's fighting Wanderlai or Nate Marquardt, 2 guys I'd like to see him fight.

    Huerta could beat Alvarez, go do a move, come back and fight for the title and win. That'd definitely cement his status, Alvarez is respected, but again, another talent that I'd like to see in the UFC against BJ Penn, Gomi, Florian, and others.

    I know the guy who is ranked #1 in Wisconsin at 145 pounds. Just read an article where he stated he was offered a shot with Bellator, but told them it'd have to be after his next fight on Sept. 11th.

    nice quick fight between Steve Carl and Tyler Stinson .. a nice slam and submission from Carl. I was at this one. I'm amazed at how much they show the balcony area but you can't ever see me. Fuckers.

    They're really blowing their load on Bellator 33 ..

    Lyman Good vs. Ben Askren for the 170-lb title
    Roger Huerta vs. Eddie Alvarez 'superfight'

    .. figured they'd spread out their bigger fights as headliners.

    Yeah, I'm most excited for Huerta/Alvarez. Askren is good at what he does, but what he does is pretty boring.

    Tomorrow night ..

    Joe Soto on Joe Warren:

    "I think I'm a lot better rounded that he is. This isn't a wrestling, this is MMA. We don't know whose wrestling is going to be better until we get in there. I'm more well rounded - I'm going to kick his ass. It's going to take a different opponent for me to lose this belt - not Joe Warren. I've grown a lot in this sport, but I feel like I haven't gotten the opportunity to use all of my tools. Maybe Joe Warren will push me to use all of those tools. It would suck to lose to him; I never want to lose to a dirt bag like that."

    Man, what's up with all the fighting word today?

    Looking forward to this fight.

    Not sure if Joe is the baddest man on the planet but he may just be the fucking toughest. The mental strenght he displayed against both Patricio Pitbull and Soto is amazing, he got absolutely smashed by both just to come back like nothing had happened and kept on fighting.

    Warren's plan now seems to be to fight Omigawa at Dream.16, get a shot at the Dream FW champ (Bibiano Fernandez) and go after the 2012 Olympics. I'm guessing he would want to defend the Bellator title once or twice before going back to wrestling as well.

    As you guys probably know Bibiano is the only loss on Warren's record. Should be an interesting rematch.

    How terrible would that be for both companies though? To have Soto lose the title, to have Fernandez lose the title, and then the champion of both companies leave the sport for multiple years so he can fight in the Olympics. Total disarray in the title scene of each company.

    True. His return, however, would be huge.. I don't know that it would be multiple years. I think it would just be a little over a year.. and if its timed right, may not interfere. Who knows how all that shit works. Either way, the man is a little beast and I hope to see him again soon. He's been rolling through some really tough guys. Has a very impressive resume for having less than 10 fights. You gotta think though, for bellator .. they have to have another tournament to get him a challenger, so that buys them some time anyway.

    Fall 2011 to I guess August 2012.

    And yeah, just crown a new FW tournament champ and let him fight Warren for the undisputed title when he returns.

    yeah .. thats pretty much how I figured it in my head too. Crown a new champ while he's gone and then when he returns, you've got a big headlining fight already made .. espescially big if he is able to go to DREAM and take their title.

    God, I'd love to see him in the WEC.

    I was excited that I caught the replay last night, spaced off the event, but I got to see Warren/Soto. I had read the results prior, and it was an amazing comeback for Warren who is possibly the toughest 145er out there.

    Hmm, Warren/Aldo = Sonnen/Silva?

    I can see the similarities.

    Only problem is that Warren is undersized for FW, he's said himself that he is suited better for 135. I think that's his wrestling weight.

    I don't think Warren would be able to get Aldo down, just like he couldn't get Soto down .. and Aldo is a better striker than Soto. I think Warren would get KO'd in the early rounds.

    Soto is a way better wrestler than Aldo though. And Warren is a way better wrestler than anyone Aldo has faced in the past, Urijah and MTB are not nearly in the same league.

    Aldo is the huge favorite of course, but the match could also go the same way as Warren/Pitbull. Freire is very similar to Aldo actually.

    Did you see the fight after Warren / Soto .. that dude with the pink mohawk, Reddiger, had some sick BJJ and Gomez has limbs made of rubber cuz I don't know how he didn't tap.. I was cringing.

    All that's been announced for next week so far is:
    • Rich Clementi vs. Carey Vanier
    • Georgi Karakhanyan vs. Anthony Leone
    Clementi / Vanier should be an entertaining fight. Karakhanyan was supposed to fight Alvin Robinson, which would've been good too .. don't know who Anthony Leone is.

    Crazy to see big RICCO in Bellator.. they're really starting to get name fighters more and more.. name fighters on a skid or a comeback, sure .. but you gotta start somewhere.

    Great card last night for anyone that was curious..

    check out the Rich Clementi / Carey Vanier fight and the Matt Horwich / Eric Schambari fight .. both split decisions and both good fights.

    I kinda felt Rich got robbed. Not with the whole knee ordeal, but I thought he did more in the fight to warrant maybe UD with 29/28 across the boards. The last round looked like he lost, but the first 2 I felt Rich did more.

    Ricco actually looked really good. I hope he does come back to the UFC, I could see it happening within a year if he keeps winning. I think it said he's won 15 out of his last 17 fights, that's good no matter what level of competition you're fighting. Herman is no joke, it's a good fight for Ricco to display his skills on national t.v. The fact that he's a former world champion, imo beat Big Nog in Pride, and he's just had a really good career in general, looks to be back on the right path.....

    Bellator=good shit. Didn't get to see anything from last year, glad I get to now!

    I kinda thought that Rich was working more too, but thats why they say not to leave it in the judges hands cuz ya never know what they're watching for. Was a good fight either way and I agree.. I've really enjoyed Bellator and I like that name fighters are starting to make there way there.

    Wow .. Cole Konrad shouldn't be on TV. That was undoubtedly one of the worst, most boring fights I've ever seen. Top 5 easily. He is the definition of grapplefuck. Very, very green still. I hope Grove can put him down. I honestly think that he can because I can't see Cole lasting 5 rounds.

    And u can see Grove? Honestly, as weird as it sounds, I see Cole being more of a grinder than Grove because Cole is a really good wrestler and might not be Cheick Kongo built but he could go 5. Grove could knock him out in the first though I think cuz if he doesn't he's going to get taken to the ground and tire out then get TKOd.

    Sucks about Ricco though, that was going to be a huge fight for both men and I wonder if Ricco will even compete in MMA again.

    That's just it .. he can do it for 15 .. but it will be a title fight, so can he do it for 25 is what I'm getting at. He looked tired after that last fight.. now imagine him against someone who's actually good in Grove and having to go another 2 rounds .. I'm going with the Viking.

    The 2 shows that I've gone to had a pretty good crowd. The first one wasn't that big, but it was a good MMA crowd.. knowledgable. 2nd time I went, it was pretty packed. I'm excited for them to come back.

    I guess Ryan Thomas vs. Jim Wallhead is also on that Conrad/Grove card so that's cool. I like Ryan Thomas.

    GUTTED ..

    http://mmajunkie.com/news/20858/deta...retirement.mma

    Joe Soto has detached retina and may have to retire.

    Same thing going on with Alan Belcher, only his detached AGAIN after the surgery.. so he had to have another one. At least 6 months before he can even worry about fighting.. at thats just to get cleared to train.

    JESUS CHRIST, never have I seen a guy act that way after getting knocked out. Sorry Sean Jordan, but I don't think you're going to wake up fully from that.

    Fuji is amazing, I've seen her fight a couple times on youtube, first time seeing her on t.v. Amazing. She's a legend, what women 10 years from now will be compared to. She's going to dominate that weight class.

    Not too bad of a fight card, not sure about the 30-27 split decision win by "Warrior Princess", 29-28 maybe. Shitty judging. Excited for the finals.

    The guy he fought, Mark Holata, caught him with a mean right that connected and put him out. Now, that wasn't so unusual, except for the part where he was out but basically having a dream where he was in a fight. They had 4-5 guys trying to hold him and he was eyes-shut asleep. This went on for a good minute AT LEAST cuz they cut to a commercial right after.

    Now, I've seen guys out of it and try to take the ref down, but I've never seen someone who was in a state of REM sleep that was trying to continue lol.

    PS-Megumi Fuji, she's incredible.

    Dude, when I see this kind of stuff, all I wonder is what asshole politician is watching this fight and how will he use it to put the ban-hammer on MMA in this country? There's 2 kinds of knockouts, there's the knockouts like you saw last night on WEC with Korean Zombie and Manny the Armenian Money Train Stamboli and then there's the ones where dudes are convulsing, they're brains are jacked!

    Nah, I'm sure all the states that already allow it.. which is like all but 4-5 now.. enjoy the extra tax money they're getting from the events.

    Two top fights are extremely intriguing. Alvarez/Huerta is FOTY material for sure, this will be war. If Lyman's wrestling/TDD isn't up to par it will end up a five round snoozer with Askren winning the UD. If it is he will Molest Ben in brutal fashion.

    Very impressed with Konrad last night. Pulling off the submission in the 1st round .. excellent. Bantomweight fight wasn't really all that special.

    Yeah a lot of people I talked to thought Konrad would gas out from attempting to lay and pray on Neil the whole fight and Neil would catch him and put him to sleep. I was surprised that Konrad snatched the arm, but I'm more surprised at how few fighters go for armbar submissions like the kimura which I find to be one of the easiest submission moves to apply in a fight.

    It does kinda show how weak the HW division is universally when you look @ Bellator's HW division and the best guy they have is Konrad.

    The best guy they have RIGHT NOW .. but look at all their champs, Bellator is all about prospects. They're all gonna be unknown for a while. Guys like Joe Warren, Eddie Alvarez, and Hector Lombard are really building names for themselves though. It'll just take time. This was their first HW tourney.

    Prospect is really the best way to describe him.

    A one dimensional wrestler with a lot of drive and determination, but he knows how to use that wrestling to get the W.
    That's the description that comes to mind when thinking of Konrad. But it also fit Josh Koscheck when he first broke onto the scene.

    Ya know, that's honestly one of the things I like about Bellator. I just like to watch fights, so I don't really need a big name for me to watch. If its on and I can watch it .. I probably will. Anyway, though.. I kinda like the fact that I don't really always know who all the people fighting are. It makes it more interesting to watch in a way cuz I don't know what to expect from either guy and as tournaments progress, you kinda learn more and more about the fighters. I dig it.

    Do yourself a favor and check out Lyman Good v. Ben Askren for the Welterweight Title. It was a much better fight than I thought it would be.

    MMA Spot - On The Spot ~ Bjorn Rebney

    This Thursday, October 21, Bellator Fighting Championships will conclude its third season, live from the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pa. The event is sure to produce some fireworks as Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez will face UFC-veteran Roger Huerta in a lightweight super fight. Co-headlining will be the Bellator welterweight championship bout between current champion, Lyman Good, and season three tournament winner Ben Askren.

    MMA Spot's Jesse Denis recently caught up with the man that has become the face of the promotion, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney. Denis spoke to Rebney about the promotion, got his opinion on the controversy concerning Bellator's Fox Sports Net television deal, Eddie Alvarez versus Gilbert Melendez, and much more.
    ********

    Denis: You previously mentioned the signings of Joe Warren, Dan Hornbuckle, and Ben Askren. Bellator is specifically known for signing prospects and up-and-coming fighters, effectively setting yourselves apart from most organizations. While most promotions jump at the "UFC-veteran" tag, Bellator looks for new talent. Can you talk about this mindset a bit?
    Rebney: Absolutely, that is something I hope sets us apart for years to come. We've been very aggressive in going out and finding guys like Mike Campbell, Ben Askren, Joe Warren, Dan Hornbuckle, Eddie Alvarez, Hector Lombard, Joe Soto, and a lot of different fighters who are world class guys. They deserve to be in the top 10, but are brand new in the U.S. market. Although they don't have that history behind them, with UFC and Strikeforce, but they've done spectacularly well.
    ********

    Denis: Let's talk about the Alvarez-Melendez situation. Both men have gone on record saying that they want to fight one another. Scott Coker recently said the two of you have spoken about it, and had nothing but positive things to say. He did, however, say that an injury to Melendez's hand is keeping the fight from happening. Is this fight possible, or is it another MMA pipe dream?
    Rebney: It's completely and utterly possible. It's one of those things I've said many times. I like Scott, he's a heck of a good promoter. He puts on great shows, puts a lot of butts in seats. But promoters are unfortunately guilty, on a regular basis, of talking sideways about issues. You always hear statements to the effects of, "there's complications, issues that need to be resolved." I've said many times, there are no issues with this fight. Eddie wants it. Gilbert wants it. I would make the fight. It can take place on any network Scott would want it to take place on, and any venue he would like it to happen in. If he wants to do it on Showtime, and wants it to happen in the HP Pavilion, those are both fine with me. I'm more than comfortable going on the record saying they're fine with me.

    Eddie has got a very tough fight on his hands coming up in the next few days against Roger Huerta, who is virtually fighting for his MMA life. Once that fight is over, if Eddie is victorious, I'm more than open to doing that fight. Anytime. Anywhere. The only thing holding that fight up is Scott's willingness to make it.

    I had heard from Scott, that Gilbert has a hand problem and was getting married. Hopefully his hand is healing. I'm a big Gilbert Melendez fan. A) I hope his hand healed because he's a good guy, I love watching him fight. B) If that's the only thing holding it up on Scott's part, I would love to make the fight.

    I would love to get in contact with Scott again. Hopefully if Eddie is victorious we can make that happen.
    ********

    Denis: Let's talk about the Fox Sports Net (FSN) deal for a bit. There have been a lot of problems and complaints from the viewership side. Of course, I'm speaking to Bellator being run on tape delay, sometimes not even run at all, in favor of football, baseball, or other sports. Can you clear up the contract a bit for us? Will this be resolved, or is it even looked at as a problem?
    Rebney: It is absolutely an issue. Definitely a problem and issue that myself, the president of my company (Tim Danaher), and the people who worked out our TV deal have been working diligently to resolve. We do recognize it to be a problem. We're working very, very long hours to address it and fix it. We hope that when we're in position to make announcements for seasons four, five, and beyond, people will see that we have addressed that issue.
    Other parts of the interview touch on the organization's YouTube success, thoughts on Paulo Filho, Megumi Fujii, other prospects, and Bjorn's predictions for tonight's fights.

    I saw Hector Lombard and I thought he had the frame of John Cena on a midget's body, that dude is Overeem-big.

    Fujii losing by split, idk what to think of that. Not a fan of the warrior princess' performance, but she toughed it out against THE best female fighter in that division. I'd like to see a rematch but Bellator's format with title fights isn't something I'm a big fan of. It's entertaining, but it seems that the challengers fight a lot more than the champions do in a 12 month period.
