Anyone catch some of the 2 Bellator events last weekend?

Rory looks shot as a fighter, he was soundly beaten by Douglas Lima and never really offered any real offense during the whole fight...….but he thought he won! Not a great fight too.

Paul Daley did what he does and won by KO. Patrick Mix looks like a real prospect, that's the second time I've seen him fight, and both times he looked great. Nick Newell got his ass handed to him by a guy who was signed to lose to him, sadly.

Frank Mir beat Roy Nelson into retirement. Phil Davis won a boring fight by KO! Ed Ruth won a robbery, Jason Jackson clearly won their fight, but Douglas Crosbie managed to see it otherwise. Bec Rawlings lost a proper fight......she should go back to fighting girls pulled from a local gym in BKB!

Mousasi took Rory's fighting spirit. You could tell in that fight he had zero answers for Mousasi and since then he's been super reserved and not into the fight if that makes sense.

Rory doesnt have killer instinct anymore, could be a variety of reasons, like Merc said Mousassi beat him badly, he had a close fight with an aging Fitch which I thought Rory would blow him away, he was fortunate to beat Lima the first fight also....He did find God which may have taken his will to fight away. He's only 30 but does have some hard miles on him....Interesting to see what he does from here, he appears to be damaged goods at this point.

I like Nick Newell and I certainly respect the dude for doing what he does with his handicap, however, I'm not sure he should be in the cage

Tend to agree now. He clearly has some talent, but he should not be facing any top level fighters. Not that he really is, but even those he is fighting now are beating him easily.

Yea, against an older and slower Roy Nelson. Very slow and plodding fight mir used some inside leg licks which was the biggest weapon in the fight, Roy obviously had the right hand ready to throw but didnt land too much as Mir was moving away quite a bit. Even Coker after the fight suggested Roy should retire which is surprising considering some of the guys he has tried to milk dry.

It's just that the sporthas progressed so far in terms of fighters training techniques etc......even mid level fighters should be able to do enough against Newell to hurt him

So does Mir continue or was that a last hurrah?

Listened to Mir's podcast today, he is 100% continuing to fight.

More than likely. He's hoping to get a rematch with Fedor though, that's not a terrible idea.

Yeah if I remember correctly, didn't he have Fedor hurt just before going to sleep?

As long as he fights in the Bellator senior circuit he'll be ok.
