I was wondering what happened to this guy, saw his war against Karl Amoussuo and loved it. IDK why he was cut from Bellator after one spilt decision loss, but I am pulling for him this season!




WAR SMILIN SAM!!

Leo Kuntz (14-1-1), 28, Bismarck, N.D.

Does anyone know if he is related to Seymore?

I don't know if Dana is trying to hype it up by saying Roy was a pain in the ass or if they really clashed. I'm sure it will be interesting to watch though.

I just moved to Murrieta, so I guess that means I should also go for Alvey... Or something.

Alvey lives/trains in CA now, but he's from the glorious little city of Manitowoc, WI. My hometown. Man it's shitty here, lol. Win it for Manty Sam.
