Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Fitch has a long way back to getting a title shot, and has to start finishing fights.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Fitch would have to dismantle 3-4 top 10 guys in a row to even be considered at this point, imo.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Yeah I was really happy for Alvarez. They were no selling him by putting him in the blue corner and not having the commentators butter him up as usual, Bellator obviously know they aren't keeping him so didn't bother. Was great to see Eddie win in that fashion then do a Jose Aldo.

Btw, Dana tweeted Eddie "@Ealvarezfight congrats Bro!!! Let's talk "

Imagine a Lightweight division with Eddie and if Strikeforce folds, bring in Melendez, Josh Thomson and KJ Noons and you have probably the best division in MMA by far.

Eddie, Melendez, Thomson, Masvidal, Noons, Evangelista, Healy all signed by the UFC. That division would be stacked as hell, especially now that Diego Sanchez moved down. I see why Edgar & Guida left, too much talent.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Something else that hurts Fitch is that two years ago, GSP had picked the WW division clean. But now there are a bunch of new guys that are in title contention. Condit, Diaz, Hendricks, Kampmann, and Ellenberger are all 1 or 2 impressive wins away from getting a crack at the title.

Not to mention guys like Marquardt.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Really liked the very little we saw from Maia @ UFC 148. Didn't attempt to show off his "striking", just went right in and looked for the takedown. I miss the Demian of old. The way he he manhandled Sonnen made him look amateurish. Not a fan of Rick "The Bedtime" Story AT ALL, so hopefully Maia gives us an awesome finish.

Also, Alvarez really needs to work on his defense. He's a lot like Frankie in that they're both very quick strikers with good footwork, but both leave a lot to be desired defensively. Chins up, hands very low. It's why they both keep getting tagged and hurt in their fights. I'd say Alvarez has much more power than Edgar though. That finish last night was absolutely brutal.

Bellator seems to be losing a lot of their top guys. Nothing weird about that though. Their contracts are incredibly restrictive and their champions are barely fighting at all. The tournament format works to an extent but you can't keep these champions on the shelf like they have been doing. They also can't keep booking these "super fights" that are just downright laughable. Chandler vs. Gono.. really?

Bellator needs to embrace the fact that their top fighters will want to make more money, fight more often, and want to fight on a bigger stage. Trying to imitate the UFC's business model isn't likely to work again especially with the level of recognition the UFC's name/brand holds on its own. Spike & Viacom starting a Bellator reality series could be good or bad. I'm leaning towards bad. For one, they have zero drawing power in any name chosen to coach on the show. Two, Spike doesn't have a big ratings puller that can air in front of it. The UFC had the benefit of Chuck and Randy (already big names at that time) and the fact that RAW was airing prior to it. I can almost guarantee Spike will chose to air the show after IMPACT.

At least King Mo and Babalu will liven up their light heavyweight division. I like the fact that Mo has the opportunity to make some big money by appearing for both TNA and Bellator. But it might be a big no-no. He's already had serious problems with his health and knee. The chance of hurting himself again just grew enormously being that he'll be pulling double duty from here on out. Which is terrible for Bellator if he gets hurt because they'll be looking to use his name for the LHW tournament - which Mo should absolutely win. And the Bellator/TNA talent exchange? Come on now.....

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Sorry for the incredibly long first post. I've been following MMA since 1997 and it's a big passion of mine, not just the fights but also the way the organizations operate.
