Re: The Official Bellator Thread

I'd love to see MVP vs. Adesanya. I'd favor Adesanya since he's a little more physical, but that would be sick.

I thought the fight with Daley was alright. I'm a bit different than most, I don't mind long periods of inactivity when I can see the thought process. They didn't do **** in the first round, but they were both reading each other. Neither provided the other with much of an opportunity to do what they wanted.

I don't know if it was the $1,000,000 played a part in how he fought, if it was a respect for MVP, or a combination of both, but I was shocked to see how Daley approached the fight. It was actually a smart gameplan because he would've won the fight if he didn't give up his back in the 5th, but nobody is tuning in to see Paul Daley wrestle.

Rory v Fitch now.

I think Rory wins this fight, probably by outstriking Fitch while avoiding TDs. Rory's experience with Mousasi probably evolved his grappling game further. Fitch is a legit wrestler, so if anyone can test Rory's wrestling again it's him.

Re: The Official Bellator Thread

Some decent fights on the Bellator card tonight. I'm very excited to watch MVP vs. Lima. They both have shown a ton of respect towards each other. These are my favorite type of fights. No **** talking needed, you're both nice, let's just see some skill in there and see who the best man is.

Re: The Official Bellator Thread

The Bellator main event tonight is fun, but for me like most Lima v MVP is the main event. This fight will tell us if MVP can really handle higher competition, he's been brought along very slowly... probably longer than most anywhere. I mean both MVP and Adesanya debuted in 2012 but Adesanya has lapped him already in terms of accomplishment and level of competition.

Lima is a decent favorite. The threat of the TD is already there. DALEY had success with MVP's TDD. Lima is a legit BJJ black belt. Lima seems to have more stylistic advantages. But I think what could make a difference is MVP going all in on this fight.

MVP knows what everyone thinks about this match up. I'm sure he realizes this is make or break for him. I think he will overachieve in this fight, tho I feel Lima is a safer bet- I think MVP will win by DEC.

I like Lima but I'm hoping Page wins so people can stop calling him a can crusher.

HOLY ****! That was an insane trip than uppercut. Lima was on game the whole time, Page didn't have much success.
