    I mean, I'll root for Downey anyways because he's a wrestler. But he is a headcase, and he's also 29 already so if he doesn't fight at a Cody Law pace, he'll be old by the time his record/experience is adequate to take good fights.

    Somewhat of a headcase is far to kind. I'm a bit of a fanboy of all the NCAA guys but Downey is every bit the nutjob of Jon Jones without the talent, upside, and ability to get in front of a crowd and still claim to be a good guy.

    Bellator officials confirmed to MMA Mania that it had locked down the services of 170-pound contender Michael Lombardo to an exclusive multi-fight contract, adding some depth to a weight class that is currently spearheaded by a division champion, Yaroslav Amosov.

    Really good signing as well. Lombardo looked very good in his PFL bout.

    At least now I can use Lombardo > Caceres > Kamaru Usman to trigger the UFC shills, joking :p

    Coker rejecting Kevin Lee looks very funny now. "We're happy with our roster". Then proceeds to sign 10 fighters lmao

    I mean Kevin Lee can now fight guys like Diego Sanchez in EFC.

    Depends which version shows up. Remember his Contender Series fight with Kuppe? Probably the most boring performance in the history of the show.

    Should be pumping out fights like Law for these next 2 years and then he got a 3-4 year stretch to see if he's the real deal

    Chookagian seems like a classic Bellator signing. Carmouche 2.0

    She is boooooooring AF. Nobody, absolutely nobody wants to see Valentina vs Chook 2. I guess there are some match ups for her at Bellator, though.

    She's probably Chook the shit out of most Bellator girls tbh. I think Kielhotlz is probably the most difficult for her if she can keep it standing. Velasquez would be interesting, I have no doubt she'd give Ilima Lei the Chooking of a lifetime.

    Yeah, she is a horrible match up for Ilima lei. Kielholtz and Ithink GOATmouche would also be a tough match up for Chook.
