    lol, the last note I wrote on Palencia was that he was probably too boring to get signed by the UFC and would end up in Bellator.

    I predict dese tings.

    If you fancy a nap check out his LFA title fight.

    Its always an iffy sign when a 10-0 LFA guy isn't signed by the UFC, given their tight relationship.

    Eh if you look at it champ by champ it's more common then you might expect for them to sign with Bellator. An LFA belt nets most guys at best a contender series fight at this point. Some guys take the guaranteed Bellator contract over the contender series offer.

    Way more excited about seeing Lance Gibson Jr re-up then the Palencia signing.

    I mean it's a very crowd goes mild signing but she's an okay veteran gatekeeper who had a coin flip fight against Tracey Cortez her last time out who I'm modestly high on. This is the reality of WMMA outside of the for the most part. Few gems but overall it's not great. She's game, not afraid to crack and will probably have good fights with the likes of Watanabe, Lara, Bennett etc. Could also be a good test for some of the decent young prospects down the line. I think she loses to the top 5 though.

    You might also say it's poo though, if you get my drift.

    He's somewhat off a headcase, but this is MMA so it's kinda the perfect sport for someone like him

    I maintain Carvalho is shit but he's really tough and you've got to put him out out to finish him.

    Bellator do really well with the NCAA crossover guys. They've got the perfect platform for building them up, they can quickly go 5-0 fighting against 'local guys' signed for one show only and keep improving.
