that's like saying Tiger should of kept all his bitches quiet, impossible. The media always finds something to talk about, and this is an MMA forum, I was a fan of his at one point. He's wasting all that potential, I wanted to see him fight Anderson a few years ago.

Not impressed with Lombard's ground game from one Bellator fight i saw. He still seems to rely on power and not much finesse, am i wrong?Filho also has extensive judo background iirc but is a pretty well adapted judo/bjj mma grappler (when he was on top of his game).

This could've been a good fight if it weren't for the fact that Filho has been a walking wreck for quite a while now.Hopefully some day the guy manages to get his shit back together.

I'm still trying to find the one I saw on Twitter that is a close up of Santore's head. Again, he got Freddy Kruger'd...

Honestly I don't think Hector would even be given a chance in this fight had Paulo not had those problems.
