    BAMMA is probably why no one heard of him. British MMA is too hard to watch. Don't mean the show, I mean the availability of the show.

    Oh yeah for sure.......but I'll admit, if the Firekid is fighting, I make sure I'm watching, he's great to watch.

    I saw her get tapped out my a blue belt in competitions so that's not very good, she also always looked lost when she is on her back so that isn't good either

    She's coming off of wins over Eye and Davis, which are both pretty big. If she could beat one of Zingano or Pennington next, which are both winnable fights for her, I could see her getting the next shot after Pena/Schevchenko winner. Or who knows, maybe she decides to move up to 145, where both Holm and de Randamie are both very winnable fights for her.
    McMannhas looked horrible and incapable of using that wrestling against decent competition....I don't see that ever changing

    There's been a lot of stuff going on there for the last 6-9 months. Remember talk of Rashad leaving a while back, and Glenn Robinson said he was sick of financing the team......and I heard recently that head coach(or maybe ex head coach) Henri Hooft has pretty much left the team except for training Rumble. Just too much drama, all the signs of a team about to collapse.

    1 down, and 2 very close to being marked off too.........

    Blackzilians have officially died, WSOF have cancelled their next, only announced, event.......and Megan Anderson won the Invicta 145 belt last weekend, UFC title shot coming soon.
