Idiot logic. Askren fought the best competition available to him, Page didn't.
Speaking of idiot logic you just compared MVP performance against Lima with that of a top end veteran like Rory.
Despite your pathetic attempts there is no excuse for Askren, who at the time was claiming to be the best in the world but instead of testing himself chose to go and fight even lesser opponents at ONE FC
You were the one yapping about how much Lima supposedly struggled against Page despite being the heavy favorite to win the tournament. Rory is also in the tournament. I don't think you know what struggle or difficulty in MMA try is. Lima has had harder fights several times throughout his Bellator tenure.
Anyways. You've resorted to childish deflections now that I've been swatting away your laughable drivel.
Again showing your ignorance. Askren wanted to sign with the UFC when his Bellator contract ended but didn't because Dana is a manchild who refused to sign him. He went with One because they gave him a good offer. Are you going to continue posting Ill informed nonsense?
My beliefs on Lima being the favourite to win the whole tournament have more to do with Rory fight with Fitch then anything Lima did against MVP who he was always supposed to beat easily.
How can anyone justify scoring rd 1 to MVP ? Not a lot happened on the feet early, Mvp landed a few glancing blows whilst moving around a lot and Lima landed some solid leg kicks THEN with about 2.40 left in the rd MVP rushed Lima who then clinched MVP and put him on his back where he stayed for the rest of the round. Neither guy did anything whilst on the ground, mvp held on to Lima's wrists for dear life. Very impressive grip strength though BUT that is purely stalling the fight, he could have tried to get to his feet/land elbows on Lima or look for subs. On the feet it was EVEN and the ground battle HAS to be given to Lima as he took MVP down and kept him down for half the round whilst MVP stalled the fight ending the rd.
10-9 Lima imo. I don't see how you can score rd 1 to mvp.
It's irrelevant I guess as he got the KTFO but the fact is that the majority of the experts scoring the fight scored the 1st round slightly for Page,I can totally understand why you and some scored it for Lima as it was a close round despite what has been said in here
To say Page was talked up as this super exciting fighter he was involved in some real bore fests.
That hands down thing looks alright until someone knocks you out lol.
That's a false narrative you had been painting about MVP who had actually fought the best available opponents on the Bellator roster except for Koreshkov and the champ Rory
MVP had fought ONE worthwhile opponent in Paul Daley in about 9 or 10 Bellator fights up until his ko loss. There is ZERO reason why he couldn't have also had a few fights with guys like Lorenz Larkin, Jon Fitch etc etc. He also only just squeaked by Daley 3-2 imo. Half way through the 5th rd it was Daley's fight to lose then MVP reversed position, landed a few strikes on the floor to get the win. I've always enjoyed watching mvp fight myself but even his biggest fans know he was taking the complete pi$$ with his level of opposition year after year after year. Also don't forget the boxing nonsense fighting guys who are 2-12 etc etc. It turned into an absolute farce.
When he takes a break and fights again it had better not be average journeymen he faces.
Fitch only just signed up to Bellator not long after Larkin and both guys are ranked behind MVP,those are decent match ups now but my point stands about him fighting the best available on the roster
