Bellator also struck with a dose of teh awesome

The Gods of MMA smiled down upon us this weekend – it was a great three days of human cockfighting from start to finish. What kind of world are we living in where the Fedor fight is the most meh fight of the weekend??? Above is the Eddie Alvarez vs Michael Chandler fight from Saturday’s Bellator event. Lemme just say it holds up even against the Dan Henderson / Shogun Rua fight.

    ^ Winnebago Boy also claimed Alvarez was the #1 lightweight in the world.

    I like Bellator, and Alvarez/Chandler was sick – but speaking of sick, I’m kind of getting sick of their organization as well. The lighter weight classes are awesome, but who cares about Ben Askren or Hector Lombard when they’re fighting (or in Ben’s case, just squeaking by) scrubs in strange non-title, not-so-super fights once a year?

    The tournament format is great, but it keeps most of their fighters shelved for long periods of time and the champs actually fight the least as they have to wait for the tourney to conclude. THEN when you have a dominant champion, they are locked into a permanent contract and forced to sit out while they should be moving on to real competition in the major leagues. Hector has been on a great streak, but Chris Leben would be too if he was in Bellator fighting the D level competition that Hector has been facing. Meh.

    I laughed my ass off when Bjorn claimed the only man who could possibly beat Hector is Anderson Silva. Lombard’s last three opponents were Trevor Prangly, Jesse “Pee Pants” Taylor and Joe Doerkson. AND THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST FIGHTERS HE’S FACED. EVER. Double Meh.

    ^^I heard them say that & laughed out my face hole.

    Yeah Bellator’s problems have surfaced. Alvarez is one of their biggest draws and he just got smashed by a no-name. It was a good wild fight but the champ lost to an unknown. I guess he can redeem himself fighting Aoki lol. And it’s too bad I really like Alvarez.

    Someone PLEASE give Lombard a test. (in the ring, not PEDs…)

    ^^If you haven’t seen it you should at least watch the first round of this fight^^

    I’m at work, but I can’t wait to watch this later.

    Munoz would probably crush Lombard.  Just make him look dumb.

    Eddie may have gotten beat by a no name, but how many people knew who the hell Frankie Edgar was before he beat BJ.

     

    Hell looking at the recent ppv numbers I would think most casuals STILL don’t know who the fuck Frankie is.

     

    I am just happy that we got 3 events from the 3 major orgs and they were all jam packed with ultra violence. I can care less about which fight was the best, just happy to see exciting fights.

    I love bellator. I’m normally more excited for bellator then the UFC. But the champions are all a joke they never fight in Championship fights. I think it devaluizes their whole Org. 

     

    Check out Bellator’s Wiki where the champs have defened their belts. Its actually pretty funny all 0’s
