Browser Crasher:: Bellator 72 Happened

Karl “The Psycho” Amoussou taps Bryan “The Beast” Baker with a sweet inverted heel hook to win the Welterweight Tournament final.
Amoussou – Submission, :56 of Rd. 1

The savvy Amoussou will now get a shot at dethroning Bellator’s current welterweight kingpin, Ben “Funky” Askren.   This couldn’t have played out better, as Amoussou’s skill set could provide the biggest challenge to date for the wrestling phenom.

 

Paul Daley smashes journeyman Rudy Bears in his promotional debut.
Daley – TKO, 2;45 of Rd. 1

Unfortunate Donkey Kong hammerfist to the back of Bears’ head, but nobody seemed to care.  Yeah he was pretty much (completely) done at that point, but it should have been acknowledged in one of the gajillion replays, instead of Sean Wheelock just calling it a hammerfist.

Ben “Killa B” Saunders finishes Brian “Mr. Unbreakable” Warren in true Killa B fashion.
Saunders – TKO, :22 of Rd. 1

Saunders did what you’re supposed to do with a gimme fight.  Destroy your opponent in quick order.  Killa B back in the win column after losing a unanimous decision to Bryan Baker in the WW tournament semifinals back in May.

Check out the gash on Warren’s eyebrow from what shall now be referred to as KNEEPOCALYPSE.

other notables from the event…

Nothing really.

-Attila Vegh won a very questionable split decision over Emmanuel Newton.

-Travis Wiuff Sonnen’d his way to victory over Tim Carpenter.

-Marius Zaromskis won a timid decision over Waachim Spiritwolf.   I’m sorry, he won a very smart and technical decision over Waachim Spiritwolf.

-Didn’t see the other fights.

    As someone who half heartedly watched this card Grappo’s summary is apt.

    good god, why do i keep checking in on fightstinker?… post sh*t days after it happened, post lame ass jokes, no good analysis… oh right, only reason is because they are linked from mmafighting.com.

  • Grappo

    haha, a guy who puns “fightstinker” is complaining about lame jokes

  • Letibleu

    I watched the event and grappo summed it up with dotted t’s and crossed i’s.

    The bellator game is available for download somewhere if you have what they called microsoft points. I have powerpoint 2010 does that count?

    I really wish zuffa had kept KillaB.

    I know he was on a little bit of a skid, but when he’s comfortable and on he’s more fun to watch then 60% of zuffas current roster who I dont give a shit about.

  • Blackula Jonez

    The other funny thing about J’s post is that Grappo posted this within hours after the event.

    I think its safe to say that when I need my mma fix that bellator is the methadone that bridges the gaps between that sweet sweet UFC black tar heroin.

  • Letibleu

    kinda like watching intervention to feel better about yourself

    Thanks, now I don’t have to feel guilty about not even downloading it post-fact.
