I think the brothers will make it to the UFC.
what i like about this kid is that he headhunts but he does it the right way. he’s always looking to put one of those hooks on the temple of his opponent. he aims them very well.
Both the Pitbull bros are similar to Dos Santos in they seem like they want to do serious damage with every strike they land, and they usually do. But just like Aldo they come with serious bjj credentials but usually end up abusing opponents in the stand up portion of fights.
Glowing praise aside, we need to see how they fare against a rassler, seing as lil pit got his first L from joe warren.
I haven’t been keeping up with Bellator I admit. That fight was the first time I saw Patricky Pitbull fight. That guy is a bad man. Looking at Fight Finder quickly, I take it that Patricky uses his KO power more and Patricio uses his BJJ more? These guys will get into the UFC eventually (haven’t seen Patricio fight but he made it to the featherweight finals of Bellator and lost to Joe Warren, who is no slouch at all). I don’t think they will be champions though. The UFC is a wrestler’s world. With the exception of Anderson Silva (who probably would lose if he faced a wrestler with decent submission defense. GSP is too undersized to take the belt at 185 so not him) and Jose Aldo, you have to have a wrestler base to succeed in the UFC these days.
The days where BJJ guys can kick ass at the top level are almost over now. Jose Aldo and Anderson Silva just need a top-notch wrestler that can take them down, keep them down, avoid subs and dry hump for 5 rounds. That’s the UFC way. That sounds like a tall order but wrestlers dominate every other division. It’s not unreasonable to think that Anderson Silva and Jose Aldo could be exploited if the right wrestler came along.
Fester–>younger bro is a Muay Thai beast. This is the 1st time I saw older bro & that knee was BROOOOOOTAL.
I made my wife rewatch it 5x last night.
GOOD FUCKING NIGHT OF FIGHTS!! Too bad it ran long & my DVR only caught 1st 2 rds of Alvarez fight.
^DVRd an extra 20 minutes and it cut off about 5 seconds after the final bell. I thought Bellator had better time management. I was a little disappointed Alvarez didn’t finish.
Nah dood…..Curran improves every time I see him.
Yeah just because Pat Curran doesn’t have a name doesn’t mean he sucks. He did beat Huerta (what he’s a bum for losing to the top 155 contender and a two-time 155 contender?) If Curran was in the UFC, the Zuffa cocksuckers would be sucking his dick. After the Alvarez loss, I think Curran should head to the UFC. He made a little name for himself in the Bellator season 2 155 tourny and hanging with Eddie for 5 rounds. Now it’s time for him to go to the UFC and try to progress his career further. After Patricky fights Eddie, Patricky should go to the UFC too (unless Patricky beats Eddie and gets stuck with the champion’s clause.. Which is possible! This guy is a stud).
I’d imagine that Curran and Patricky wouldn’t have much to lose by leaving Bellator for the UFC. Maybe the situation is different with Eddie. I’d imagine that Eddie would benefit going to the UFC. But hey I’m not the one with the inside scoop with the financial details. I’d hope that Monte Cox knows what he’s doing with Eddie’s career (Tim Sylvia’s career went to shit so I question Monte’s judgment but he did get Timmeh a $800k payday for the Fedor fight…)
