If Douglas Lima can get by Ben Askren, I'd say he and Curran are the most promising talents in Bellator.

Bellator actually has a really nice Featherweight division, overall.

I'd love Lima to smash Askren.

Problem is, the top guys will be tied into stupid contracts.

Really interesting interview with Rebney. Basically said Santos has no clue about nutrition But more importantly says Konrad Vs Prindle could only be weeks away.

Let's hope Konrad has shifted some of his gut.

Same here, and Prindle won't be able to keep him off long enough to bang him out. But, fair play for Bellator getting the ball rolling and hopefully they'll have someone rounded enough to force him to actually do something, or get rid of him.

On paper, he's amazing with top credentials. He looks like a tough American hero. Then you realise he's a bigger Roy Nelson physically, and he really is a slob in terms of his gut. And then you see him fight

Is Shlemenko an M-1 fighter? Because there's hope for Fedor yet to fight in the States if genus, and this Bellator division would be safe enough competitive waters for him at this stage IMO. The purse wouldn't be enough probably, but Bellator need to add to HW more than any division IMO, it's dire going on memory.

Well M1 just sued Vyacheslav Vasilevsky for breach of contact, so I don't think the relationship between M1 and Bellator is very good.

Dave Jansen vs. Jacob Kirwan has been a great grappling match so far.

Bjorn needs to have Tara and Marianna in the 125 tournament.
I don't think Lozano has the wrestling to cause Karl problems, should end in a brutal KO.

Curran is exactly that , promising , i believe Chandler and Eddie Alvarez to be way more advanced that Pat Curran in most area's , Curran is technically very sound , he has excellent composure , well rounded , he's huge for the weight , seems very athletic and physically strong , for me the only area he is lacking is his actual skill set , with all of the above in mind , he should get better and better , he is a promising fighter , but he's not there yet

****** should be down as low as 125 if he could make it , he would be a force to be reckoned with down in either of the lower weight classes , with the level of wrestling he has , if he could safely make 125 , he would without doubt be one of the premier fighters of the sport

Chandler really impressed me against Alvarez , and given his credentials he could be one to watch in the future
