Bellator 160

  • Benson Henderson may officially be the most boring high profile fighter in MMA
  • This, try not to lose approach, lost him his last fight and looked like it may cost him at 160
  • UNTIL Henderson opened up with a fury of leg checks
  • Yep
  • Checking leg kicks
  • Patricio Freire lost to Benson Henderson after quitting due to injuries resulting from Benson checking leg kicks
  • Benson will now square off against Chandler for the Lightweight Title
  • Can’t wait to see what method of “don’t hurt me” allows Benson to win the title
  • Also Fighting at 160 was
  • Derek Anderson who won by unanimous decision
  • AJ McKee by second round guillotine
  • Georgi Karakhanyan first round KO over Bubba Jenkins
  • No one cares what you wear when you lose Bubba
UFC Fight Night
  • Demian Maia whooped Carlos Condit with a first round rear naked choke
  • Condit never had great take down defense, but are you kidding me?
  • Once the fight started, Condit looked like he was sleep walking
  • Maia is world class and not taking away from how good he is
  • Buuuuuttttt….
  • Condit is too experienced to get taken down and give up his back the way he did
  • Then he gave very little defense to stop the choke
  • Kudos to Maia and I hope he fights the winner of Woodley and Wonder Boy
  • Pettis won… Yes older brother Anthony Pettis is back in the win column
  • It took him 2 plus rounds, but Pettis pulled off a guillotine in the 3rd to end his losing streak
  • Paige VanZant won with a 2nd round TKO over Bec Rawlings
  • I’m soooo glad that happend! I almost forgot she could fight!
  • Jim Miller took a split decision victory over Joe Lauzon
  • And Sam Alvey dominated Kevin Cases winning by second round KO
Did you hear?
  • Joe Silva is expected to retire by years end
  • I wonder how much he made from the sale of the UFC
  • Oh and we know someone’s happy to become the new UFC match maker
  • Dana White, call Joe
  • November 5th, UFC Fight Night will feature welterweights Kelvin Gastelum vs Jorge Masvidal
  • Kelvin is coming off one consecutive fight of making weight and a recent win over Johnny Hendricks
  • GSP coming back to fight in the UFC sounds as likely as ever
  • GSP has expressed an interest in a number of people
  • Eyeing 206 with Woodley, Diaz and Maia on his short list
  • We hope GSP fights the urge to do any more acting after seeing his recent performance and death scene against Steven Segal – ACK!
  • Now that we know Conor vs Diaz 3 will not happen in the near future
  • Rumor has Conor vs GSP at UFC 205 – Really? Well let’s entertain the idea
  • If this really happens, I can only hope GSP is in peak shape
  • If Conor goes another fight not defending his title, he needs his title stripped
  • Donald Cerrone wants Robbie Lawler at 205
  • WOW, 205 has the making to be better than 202 and 200
Quick Hits | Last Weeks News… yeah yeah…
  • It’s official!
  • WME-IMG now owns the UFC and the Ferttitas brothers were not at UFC 202
  • Whoa… How can they just cold turkey like that but… then again selling the company means they are OVER IT
  • Dana White is thinking Anthony Johson versus Jon Jones would be a better match up FIRST
  • Rather than DC and Anthony
  • I’m gonna say I’m with Dana on this one
  • And I’m ALSO gonna say, Anthony please make quick work of it like you did against Glover
  • PLEASE
  • Puff puff passing along some new tricks
  • Jon Jones taught Snoop Doggy Dog about the spinning elbow…
  • For Yeezus sakes!
  • Wanna talk about what happens when Paparazzi punching hot head Kanye West finds ear biting Mike Tyson in his seat at UFC 202
  • Absolutely nothing! Mike moved
  • Why am I let down on so many levels by this…
  • Another one bits the dust hey!
  • Well… potentially
  • After two consective losses in the UFC, Rory McDonald is headed to Bellator PEOPLE
  • I’m loving FloCombat.com as a new resource for MMA News
  • Just sayin’
