Great card this weekend.

The Bryan Allen postfight commentary pissed me off. Treating Daukus like he’s some scrub (that you barely slipped by) and saying poo poo like, ‘I had an off night’ doesn’t engender you well to fans (me). Don’t think anything he did gets him a shot against Heinisch, but on the off-chance that does happen, I look forward to watching him get starched.

I saw that as someone who is very personally critical, it was ugly. I don't think his competitor even entered his mind.

You know I disliked Mike Perry at first because of the whole racist poo poo in the Leech fight, but then it turns out that he fired those cornermen and went off to be an enchanted wanderer, so he's back in my good books.

mike perry has never fought the leech li jianliang

he fought the ace hyun gyu lim when presumably alex nicholson said the racist line "he can't even open his eyes"

but mike also did that racist native american video before the cowboy fight, plus all the times he uses the n word and general homophobia

he's still a profoundly ignorant dude

Thinking back to the Porier / Hooker fight - how is Hooker's ground game rated? It seemed from watching and what I've heard about his background that his strength was really in his standup. He did hit quite a few takedowns, but once he got the fight to the ground he didn't look threatening at all, either from a grappling or ground and pound standpoint. Did Porier just handle him really well, or is groudwork a known weakness in Hooker's game?

Huh, I've never heard of the cornerman incident, I just assumed all his racist bullshit was his own.

Li Jianliang vs Mike Perry actually sounds like a fun matchup, I think Mike would get his rear end kicked though.

oop my bad. I didn't go back and look at his record. I remembered that it was Alex Nicholson though.

I forgot about the video for the cowboy fight. That was pretty bad. Moving him back to "cautiously neutral and slightly negative" on the basis that I believe that he's too dumb to understand most of this poo poo.

imo we need to book a Dom Cruz vs. Cormier/Bisping/Felder gauntlet match and they can take out all their frustrations from commentating with him. as a surprise at the end, Jon Anik gets to come out and kick him in the nards

The first fight was good, the other 3 were great. The whole card is only 10 fights unlike the usual 12-13 and the only bad fight was probably Greene vs Villante which was just really trashweighty, so if it went to decision I'd say you could skip it, but the finish was so loving funny you might wanna see how they got there, also it was Villante's first time at heavyweight so that might just be worth seeing in general, if you care about that sorta thing.

I unironically loved the Greene/Villiante fight. Featured some of the most effective and NY/NJ cornering possible, a fighter improving all 3 rounds, and then a hilarious finish.

I rank Fitzy pretty high, but only because he has satisfied the requirement of all Boston media personalities to at some point demonstrate their suppressed Boston accent.

That was a really weird situation, it was like they picked him up for a year so that Bellator couldn't re-sign him, then by the time his contract with the UFC was up, Bellator already had Big John and Goldie locked in, i.e. The Worst Booth In Modern MMA.
