I kinda feel like this would be a good time for a new B-League thread. I accidentally clicked on the OP when seeing what's up (WAR GOOCH) and it's all like "Bellator is looking to fill the hole left by Strikeforce," and talking about that Yuiriy guy and Oplot.

It'd probably serve the community well to have a thread talking about Bellator, ONE, RIZIN, Invicta, various C-league players like Cage Warriors, going over recent freak show incidents like Bas's Bareknuckles and Golden Boy, and identifying a few key twitter accounts for following the b-leagues.

Thoughts? If someone helps me to develop an outline I'm willing to write it up.

I didn't know who Chatri Sityodtong was when he came up in the UFC thread recently so that kinda stuff would be helpful for an op

I've started working on something. In my usual fashion I'll take suggestions and correct the OP once it goes up.

I'm going to do larger writeups on Bellator, RIZIN, and ONE, a medium writeup on Invicta, a list of other promotions with quick facts (including "Fightpass" promotions as a category), and then a list of key twitter accounts to follow (basically the two gif dudes)

If you have gifs, images, gags, or facts that oyu want to include, let me know. I'll include them with a shoutout.

So my plan here is to post a bare-bones ("bare-bones") thread (scare quotes because it's 1327 words right now and I'm about 2/3 of the way finished the text) with two posts, and I'll just do my thing where I add any good posts and images on the first page, and I'll start working on images at that time too, I guess.

Hell, at 20 bucks, I probably would have popped for it, even tho I would have had to watch it on my iPad since my living room is still in moving boxes. But 40? Nah.

The lead up to the fight and the commentary during the fight are also to blame for keeping up the facade of Chuck sandbagging so Tito doesn't know his true speed knowing full well it was so dangerous to put Chuck in there.

Sure fight promoters do scummy poo poo all the time but everything leading up to it made it clear this was a terrible idea. It was rough to watch and I was just hoping Chuck wouldn't legitimately die in there.
