    So, Rory saying he gets less sponsor money in Bellator.......not all that surprising though, he had an exclusive Reebok deal in the UFC which would likely have been quite lucrative.

    Watching Kongo do what Kongo does these days and that's near nothing.....doesn't use his standup anymore he is a transformed wrestler.....wall and stall and TD attempts.

    Another boring SD win for Kongo, hardly even uses his standup anymore which is crazy, his opponent was outclassed but he is still afraid of being ko'd again so he smothers his opponents while being booed big time from the crowd.

    Linton Vessall had little problem with Liam Mcgeary taking him down both rounds before getting a sub.

    Rory looked good tonight doing what he had to do , taking down Daley and not trading in the standup much with him before subbing him in the second.

    Awful fight. It's so frustrating watching Kongo........it's clear if he just trusted his striking a bit more, he would have won this fight easily, and most of his fights really. Now though, he is intent on just holding someone to the cage, in an attempt to get the TD.......but even when the guy slipped and ended on his back, Kongo was afraid to go to ground with him........he is so indecisive.

    I think McGeary's problem is that he's finally fighting guys who are good on the ground.......he's never been afraid of the TD previously, so lets them have it because he usually manages to finish them from his back. But now he's fighting legit wrestlers who will control the fuck out of him. In the stand up he looked to have a massive advantage over Vassell, in the little time they were standing. Quite interested to see how Vassell will do against Davis/Bader winner.

    As for Rory, it was really a fairly easy fight for him. Daley is fun as hell to watch, but his ground game is still nowhere. Hell, he lost easily to Yakovlev a couple of years ago, who has done nothing on the UFC. That said, Rory looked good and he will be the Bellator champion.

    On a separate point........James Gallagher and AJ McKee. These guys are allegedly warring with each other, even had Gallagher on the broadcast talking about it........but it's all fake. There were tweets floating around last night with both guys getting on well behind the scenes, but then publicly having heat........they forgot if you go kayfabe, you gotta stay kayfabe...........and I have a feeling this Daley/Page thing is similar too.

    Baby Slice looked decent, kid has good hands, needs some more technique and diversity, but that'll come with time.
    Just because I can NEVER remember how to score my points!
    6 points for winning fighter, then another 2 if you guess the method, then another 2 if you guess the round

    Baby Slice is not a bomber like his dad, but he does have some decent hands on him. Like pointed out, he needs some tightening up in his game but he should be alright. I'm sure a decent camp would be willing to take on the name, help them get some exposure.
