Anyone think Chandler will keep his damn hands up in the third fight, jesus that was difficult to watch, Eddie never actually landed something he set up he just got to land on Chandler because his hands were at his hips the whole fight.

Can you blame him, he dumps Konrad, he's trying to get rid of Askren now he's stuck with Daniel Straus.

He gives away a FOTY for FREE and if Alvarez wins again he loses another champion.

King Mo has gone from being the company's posterboy to the belator's next real poster boy Roger Huerta.

But hey at the very least you have a half dozen Russians who none will be able to tell apart for years to come.

I really thought last nights card was worth the money

I figured Curran would win. I hoped Mo would lose. And I thought Chandler vs. Alvarez was awesome. Regardless of the winner. Chandler was on the hunt and kept coming forward. Alvarez gave him a fight. Chandler should have kept his hands up and maybe less strikes hitting his face would have made a difference for the judges.

Regarding Bellator as a whole, I've always been a big UFC/WEC follower, but didn't know much about Bellator. Recently with some cable changes, now all I can see is Bellator. I have to pay to watch any UFC, even ancient fights. So I'm quickly becoming a Bellator fan, and I really like the tournament structure. Obviously the average skill level is lower than the UFC, but still I find the events somewhat entertaining. Kinda like Leonard Garcia....not a lot of skill, but almost always entertaining. I hope Bellator sticks around because MMA needs a minor league for UFC's roster cuts, and also a place to groom fighters in preparation for the UFC some day. Chandler and Alvarez could easily make the jump.

I had the 2nd, 3ed and 5th for Alverez. He clearly took rounds not by volume but by landing big shots IMO.

Round One.

Round Two.

Round Three.

Round Four.

Round Five.

Its a close fight, but I didnt think it was as close or controversial as others.

Imo all 5 rounds had a clear winner.
I call it BS decision because to me, Chandler won 3 rounds very clearly while Alvarez clearly took 2.
I get what you are saying, but in this fight i can't agree.

Good card, some very competitive fights, probably won't shut up the anti mma shills though. Thought Eddie won the fight 2, 3 and 5. Great fight, a real FotY candidate. What a setup for a third fight, could be the best trilogy in the history of MMA, already the best two fight series. Newton beat Mo, barely I thought, and made LHW in BFC a lot more interesting for MMA fans who watch Bellator. His style is confusing and frustrating to stand with and he showed some good take down defense. Newton is beter then I gave him credit for. Straus is better then I gave him credit for as well, his fight with Curran was nice, a tough battle. 145 is no joke, tough to win in at that weight. Glad Diesel got the win and payday. Real good card, FW, LW, and LHW titles all changed hands in close competitive fights, says a lot about their depth and the talent that is built with their prospects through the tournaments.

Good card? I thought the card was horrible, the timing was bad, the long ass video game commercials for that roman game killed the feel of the card repeatedly. I thought it was one of the worst cards Bellator has done in a long time as far as production goes and in general the fights sucked, if it wasn't for an epic main event it would have been an epic failure.

Well this stuff isn't for everybody, but I'm sure you have a show with great production timing and commercials that suits you.

Any card witb commercials and three title fights is destined to fail. As Chael Sonnen said, "I don't want to do anything for 25 minutes no matter what it is. I love ice cream but I don't want to eat it for 25 minutes." He's got a point that watching three long ass fights is just too much even of they had been entertaining.
