Just saw this. Big blow to Bellator imo and basically their UFC equivalent to losing Rogan.Not fighter related, but former Bellator color commentator Jimmy Smith just signed with the UFC. Like many, I've been a fan of his work for a long time. He's going to be great in the UFC.
It's really weird. He's short and always looks like he's out of shape, but he owns the ring. DC inside the distance was the only fight I put money on tonight, as a pretty sure thing. I figured Stipe would probably win too but there was a chance that he might get clipped in the first couple minutes.He's a fucking animal, the shit he does given how he looks is so odd. He almost threw Barnett out of the cage in Strike Force.
Yair Rodriguez had similar hype to Ortega when Edgar dominated him, but Ortega is a different fighter. I get that his jiu jitsu is some of the best in the world but I can't see Frankie getting into a position where he gets caught. I'll say Frankie wins a dominating decision.
I was just catching up on the UFC recaps from the London fights. Don't have fightpass. If anyone saw it, could they please explain how the fuck Paul Craig locked in and got a submission tap in under 10 seconds before the bell?
I read it, but still can't picture it. I'm not sure I would believe it if I saw it in a movie. I know luckiestman is a bjj guy and I'm sure there are others around: can cutting off the air and/or blood really have that fast of an effect?
I enjoy watching MMA, but I'm ignorant. I'm curious how close that guy could have been to going out. Understanding of course that this is all pure speculation.
You haven't been choked? It's not that scary in a controlled setting. Things get dark and then you pass out. No pain. Luckiestman prob got tapped 10 times yesterday in his "wrestling like sport"Always wondered what that feeling was like. I don’t actually wanna know, but I’m curious.
