    I think it was pretty obvious Henderson won. He had octon control the entire fight. Frankie didn't display any control from the few takedowns he landed and he is a volume puncher that doesn't land with any power. Frankie has mad heart, but he really got beat up.

    Frankie landed punches but he was too little. He kept catching Hendersons leg but the kicks were landed first. That up kick was nasty and the bell saved him

    the thing was Frankie kept catching kicks but u dont get points for just catching kicks. Frankie never capitalized. After getting kicked in the face Frankie was also unable to take bendo down again after that...which also dont get you points.

    Bellator HW Blagoi Ivanov stabbed in the chest

    Postby doyousukadaweena » Mon Feb 27, 2012 9:12 am
    Bellator heavyweight Blagoi Ivanov was stabbed in the chest in a pub in Sofia, Bulgaria early Sunday morning and despite successful surgery, things are still very dicey for the Combat Sambo world champion. The Sofia News Agency passed along the unfortunate news today:

    Bulgarian MMA fighter Blagoi Ivanov, who was stabbed early Sunday morning in a pub brawl in Sofia, is still fighting for his life, announced doctors.

    Ivanov has sustained a deep knife wound in his chest that reached to his heard and is currently under artificial respiration at the intensive care unit of Pirogov Hospital in Sofia.

    Surgeons have carried out a life-saving operation on their patient, but say his life is still under a real threat.

    Sunday night Ivanov and two of his friends had just occupied their places in a bar on Graf Ignatiev Str., when a group of 8 persons armed with bats and knives came in and attacked them.

    At 5.10 am police came in to find the attackers escaped and Ivanov with a deep stab wound under his armpit.

    Ivanov (6-0, 1 NC) is probably best known for defeating Fedor Emelianenko in the finals of the 2008 Combat Sambo World Championships. He was signed by Bellator last year and went 2-0 in the promotion. His last bout was on Christmas Eve in Russia, where he defeated Ricco Rodriguez by controversial TKO.http://mobile.bloodyelbow.com/2012/2/26 ... g-for-life

    God Damnit Yves... Hopefully the UFC gives him another fight.

    Jeremy Stephens has the worst haircut in the UFC besides those gay-ass mohoawk guys.

    As soon as Barboza gets a shot - everyone will forget about the rest of the "stacked" lightweight division.
  • iKingGodGivBiziKingGodGivBiz Batman With Prep Time Posts: 20,137 Regulator
    Barboza isnt even top 10 in his weightclass yet he hasnt fought a top 10 guy yet or a wrestler with good striking.

    SMH @ this shit here...


    Thiago Alves gains nearly 30 pounds in three hours after UFC on FX 2 weigh ins
    4xtav_large.jpg
    By the time Thiago Alves steps into the cage tonight (March 2, 2012) to face off against Martin Kampmann in the main event of UFC on FX 2, which emanates live from the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia, he'll likely be doing it as a light heavyweight.

    Not that it matters, but his contest against "The Hitman" was contracted at 170-pounds.

    Celebrity dietician Mike Dolce, founder of the famed "Dolce Diet," was "Down Under" this week to help "The Pitbull" make his mark. The Brazilian has been inconsistent in successfully cutting weight throughout the course of his career, but based on a recent tweet by Dolce himself, he doesn't seem to have any trouble putting it back on.

    27 pounds in just three hours, for those of you keeping score at home.

    Alves weighed in at 170.5 at Thursday night's weigh in event, and Dolce later tweeted that he was already back up to 197.6. By tonight, who knows what the finally number might be.

    Star-divide

    I don't want to get on my soapbox here, but weight cutting has been known to be fatal, killing everyone from college wrestlers to professional bodybuilders. The sport of mixed martial arts, still in its infancy, seems to have an air of invulnerability to it, likely based on the simple notion that "Well, nothing bad has happened yet."

    Yet.

    Fighters cut weight. It's part of the sport and it's not going away. When a weight cut begins several weeks out from a fight and peaks with a few pounds the day of the weigh in, there is little, if any risk involved. But these massive fluctuations -- to go from 200 to 170 and back to 200 -- over the span of a couple of days, puts fighters at risk.

    Dolce tweets it like a badge of honor.

    Let's also take into consideration the exploitation of the system. A 200-pound fighter is not supposed to be fighting a 170-pound fighter. While it's highly unlikely that Martin Kampmann will show up anywhere near 170 (and may be closer to middleweight), there are plenty of fighters, like former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar, who compete just a few pounds above the contractual limit.

    Are we inadvertently punishing them for not doing a better job of exploiting the system?

    Let's get some thoughts here, Maniacs, am I missing the mark on this issue (pun intended)? Or do trainers and dieticians have an ethical obligation to tell fighters not whether or not they can cut so much weight, but whether or not they should?

    Opinions, please.

    legally nothing, but ethically and health wise?
    Dolce is gonna make a killing off destroying these guys liver and kidneys.

    if thiago doesn't go up a weightclass or drop the retarded amount of muscle for a striker, then his fighting years are going to be cut in half, i give him up to for more years before his organs start crapping out on him.

    Dolce is the new age dr kevorkian.
