    can You upload Zayats vs Sobral fight??? … Russian guy is well rounded, i liked his moves, probably bright prospect in Bellator, if King Mo lawal will not kick his ass…

    Dare I say, both Chandler and Pat Curran are becoming elite level MMA fighters. I honestly think Curran can hang with Jose Aldo and with his strong wrestling and submission game, his iron shin, his technical striking and head movement and his great conditioning can actually beat Aldo

  6. OppressedAnarchist says:

    I can’t wait until Curran attempts to go to the UFC and Bellator sues him.

  7. SundiMundi says:

    Chandler looks like Dos Santos but fights like Velasquez. Guy’s a beast.

    couldnt agree more, it really does make sense when you put it into perspective like that
    none of this “i am the #1 contender cause i talk more” nonsense…

    Seth is stupid. If you know your knee is messed up why would you go for a take down?

    Michael keeps beating all my favourite fighters 😀

    Whoever had the idea of putting the tournaments on television needs a pat on the back. They are hugely television-friendly, easy to understand, and give a greater sense of purpose to each of the fights. You know that, if this guy wins, he moves on to the next round of the tournament, and that the winner of this tournament will have justly earned their place as a title challenger. Beats the heck out of being thrown into the match by the promoter.
