His opponent is a human potato. He should win easily. If he somehow loses, his career is as good as over.

Missed the entrance, but saw the full fight. His opponent was indeed a human potato.

The main event on Saturday was a ton of fun to watch. Wish it was 5 rounds.

Yeah. I loved it. 

 

And I hated reading all the comments online about it being boring or underwhelming.

 

Like...what the *Censored* were people watching? Not the same fight I saw. :lol: Guess there wasn't enough dick-swinging, disrespect, or blood for some "fans". One of my favorite fights in a while.

I'm going with Daley in the Bellator fight. 

 

Flashy KO's vs small names, and theatrical antics do not a proven-fighter make. MVP probably goes for an unnecessarily flashy spin attack, and gets hit with Daley's bomb of a left hand.

So...that went about as I expected. MVP got clowned, and basically got exposed for what he is. Fight could have gone either way...and that's pretty telling in itself. Story of the fight was Daley trying to stay out of the range of Page's long limbs...but if he pushed a little harder, he could have taken it. MVP is probably the biggest example of "all flash, no substance" that I've ever seen. And it's especially funny that some of the same people who talk shit about McGregor can sit there and praise MVP...because McGregor is definitely a more rounded athlete in every sense.

MMA is severely lacking in young talents these days...and it's not for a lack of talented athletes (I know it isn't). But, for real...I'm tired of the only MMA news being about dudes who are past their primes. It hurts the entire industry to force "big names" into the spotlight just to make money. A guy like Josh Barnett ain't worth shit in 2019. And it's not just him. It's...all of it. It's the Bellator tournaments with a bunch of washed up has-beens, it's UFC ignoring their rankings to reward whoever they want...it's all of it. There are great young fighters on every side of the globe, I just wish we could start seeing them where they belong. We're getting lower quality fights, and paying more for it with shit like Fight Pass and ESPN+

 

I started watching stuff like Sumo and Muai Thai just for a palette cleanser...for something "real".

Think Zuffa selling to WME was the writing on the wall that the promotion peaked, Joe Silva quickly saw the writing on the wall that the company wants fights with exciting feuds and not logical matches due to rankings and that was the end of quality build up of younger talent. Now they just thrust young and exciting talent towards stardom and they lose a fight quickly and fall back down the card to never recover.

Nah...a beef plant, actually. :lol:

 

 

And he's not as hopeless looking as the last guy. Here's a better picture of his overall size:

Anyway...this is how someone should break into MMA.

 

Whether these people are below Jack or not, he's doing it the right way. Only difference is, a major company like Bellator is willing to book this, rather than a random indy fed (which would be the normal way of coming up). Props on Jack for grinding through the nobodies before he tries to pick a fight with even the bottom tier of somebodies. I really have to assume that he'll have an opponent with at least something of a name or image after this fight. There'd be no reason for him not to.

Dammit...why does Andrade giving Thug Rose an actual rose have to be so adorable? Was that meant to be a mind game or a death threat? I don't even know what I just saw.
