I hate all these people freaking out about Bellator going there though. The sport of MMA is legalized and they think only the UFC can go to NY. It's so stupid.

I'm glad it's finally legalized. I really thought it never would be.

Theres lots of New York based fighters in both promptions. For Bellator 2 of their current champions. Undefeated Liam McGeary (LHW Champ, First/Only British MMA champion of a major organization) and Marcos Galvao(BW champ) theres others but those are the big 2

For ufc there is Chris Weidman, who lobbied hard for mma in NY. His teammate Sterling, lots of guys.

And there's some free agent "legends" and pioneers and veterans of the sport that would be big sells and would love to fight in NY. Like 'The NYBA' Phil Baroni, and Matt Serra.

so

Arguably the best female fighter on the planet. And the Pound 4 Pound best female MMA fighter in the world Cris Cyborg is finally making her ufc debut. Against someone completely unworthy of facing her but cyborg really wanted to fight in brazil so good for her for doing so.

I hope she is making millions cause the stuff zuffa said about her was disgusting. So cruel and uncalled for.

As much as I dislike Broner, he got the job done. Would not want to see him fight Mayweather.
Also Robert Easter has a killer right hand.
OOH super excited about Pacquiao vs Bradley 3, I want Bradley to retire Pacquiao. And don't get me wrong I like Manny, but he's been in wars and I feel the only way he'll step away from the sport is if Bradley beats him down, and I think he can do it with Teddy Atlas in his corner.

That's a good fight, and there's history there as well. Why would you not want to see that fight?

How did teddy atlas work out for him? I don't know why after the first 2 fights you'd think Bradley would win.

Because I dislike both of these fighters as people, moreso Broner. And I think it's best for Boxing if Mayweather stays retired. Besides Mayweather would beat Broner easy IMO.

LOL Oh man what a frustrating fight to watch. After the Valdez and Ramirez fights I was so pumped for the main event. I thought Bradley would win for 4 reasons.
1- Age favored Bradley. I figured Manny's age would catch up to him.
2- I thought after the Way Bradley closed the show against Rios, Atlas would keep Tim focused enough to follow his game plan, which was sound.
3- Manny had just recuperated from shoulder surgery and I doubted he'd be at %100.
4- I thought Bradley would have been hungrier than he was.

Fact of the matter is Bradley laid an egg. Having a good trainer is only good if you listen to him and follow a game plan. His issue was more of a mental thing (Use lateral movement, use combinations, go to the body, don't go straight back, things that he only did for 3 out of 12 rounds.) Honestly this was Bradley's worst showing ever. Congrats to Manny either way.

Congrats to the Warriors for beating the 96 Bulls record with 73 wins.
And good thing the Bulls themselves were eliminated from making the playoffs so they don't go 4-0 against Lebron in a playoff series.
Also Errol Spence vs Algeiri sounds like a good match-up. I favor Spence by decision but am not counting out Algeiri due to his scrappiness and height. Also Glowacki is fighting again after that awesome win over Marco Huck.
What are your thoughts on those fights turtlefanforever?

Did you catch Spence though? Kid is gonna be a beast, and Glowacki had a good showing. This weekend I'm looking forward to GGG kicking ass along with Chocolatito Gonzalez

GGG is slowly becoming the biggest star in boxing.

i'm more looking forward to the BellatorMMA debut of Benson Henderson this weekend on SPIKE. fighting Koreshkov for the title at WW. lots of good fights on that card.

Bellator Kickboxings first event plays directly after the conclusion of that fight. so should be a good fight weekend.

I Agree

The snippets of Bellator I watch are pretty good. But Wade vs GGG is what I'm looking forward to.

off to a good start

the kickboxing fights didnt bring all the action i was looking for but they were alright. the BellatorMMA card was good. Koreshkov dominated Henderson from start to finish. Very impressive. and kudos to Benson for not getting knocked out cause he took countless power shots right on the jaw. the ww division is looking great.

Chocolatito Gonzales had a good solid test against Mcwilliams. Still pulled a one sided victory.
GGG absolutely DEMOLISHED Dominic Wade in 2 rounds. When asked about fighting Canelo or Kahn he straight up said "I don't care who it is, I just want my belt."
That man is on a mission.

Bradys suspension re-instated. They'll prob find a way to overturn it cause the pats get away with everything but it'd still so funny to see pissed of pats fans.

Leicester City one win away from winning the Premier League football title.

That's like (almost) the Cleveland Browns going on to win the Superbowl next season...

It's even tougher to win when it's just a series without any playoffs.
