    Dominates is a more appropriate term, outpoints is an understatement.

    Quite a boring night of fights by Bellator’s standards, the Sandro fight was surprisingly bad.

    Caught half of Marx vs. Ueda which was okay, third round was basically one guy coasting since he has the other two rounds. Nothing special.

    Was pretty hyped for Sandro vs. Bezerra and got extremely let down. The commentators summed it up perfectly – it looked like a sparring match, a slow and calm one at that. Bezerra went into the third losing and hurt Sandro decently a few times but let him off the hook and looked like he wanted to part in finishing the fight. When fighters don’t go out to win and finish, exactly how Bezerra acted in the third, I don’t care about them losing.

    As expected, another decision from blanky Askren. I don’t mind when someone like GSP doesn’t finish fights because he is completely dominating the best fighters in the world, not unknown and unranked fighters. GSP was finishing when fighting lower talent but he needs to be careful when going against killers like Penn, Alvez and Shields.
    Once again Askren shows he is wasting his high level of potential.

    Forgot to note about how stupid Bezerra fought in the first round. It took me, and the commentators, about 30 seconds to find out his gameplan. Wait for Sandro to come in and swing the left hook, that’s it. I remember seeing him throw it 3 times in a row at one point, I was honestly confused at why he was making it so blatantly obvious that he was only interested in landing a counter left hook, not much else mattered.
    To be fair to the guy he eventually changed it up in the 2nd but the 1st round was a joke from him.

    Sandro fight was entertaining. That kid put up a fight. But Bellator should have made Popo fight Sandro in the end…seriously wtf kind of scouts do they have when they have these two fighting…and its not in the finals.
    they should have known this kid was good. What a waste

    Askren is soooo boring, and this guy is calling out GSP? Feed him to Ellenberger and his Afro will leave the cage an hour before his body.

    Ummm, right. Call me crazy but I consider the results of a fight to be “news”. This site isnt called myvideofight anymore in case you havent noticed. If you don’t want to see the results yet, go somewhere else.

    If you don’t like grappling, why not watch boxing or kickboxing?

    Umm….I have a Chael Sonnen Av….

    Why would I hate grappling if I like watching Chael Sonnen fights?

    It was a grapple f**king of epic proportions, cant deny it. It doesnt always have to have a negative connotation. I mean it in neutral connotation. It is what it is
