    I keep seeing some people using Kimbo vs Dada5000 to highlight how unprofessional and awful Bellator is, but not mentioning UFC having a fighter debut who has less fights than both of them. Really can't insult one without the other, but bear in mind that UFC is the big leagues, and can almost be held to a higher standard. I'm not defending yesterday's farce, but people need to judge it on its own bullshit, and not as a comparison, because they both wrong.

    Both things are ridiculous

    There is no need to mention both in order to acknowledge that either is disgraceful.

    While I agree with your point, I'd bet that CM Punk will look a lot better than those guys come fight night.

    Yeah, because nobody ever disses on the UFC for signing Punk.

    CM Punk hasn't fought yet so let's not judge until he has.
    SureLy he can't be any worse than dada 5000

    Plus, I can't believe people were encouraging overeem and sterling to go to bellator, after last night I think they have lost all credibility

    That fight almost seemed like it was staged. It was brutally horrible. I'm pretty sure Kimbo knows what to do in full mount and the fact that he gave it up so easily......

    Artem Lobov is probably only a decent amateur fighter. Awful pro and HORRIBLE UFC fighter.

    Both are jokes. But I feel Kimbo vs Dada was the bigger joke. At least CM Punk is gonna come into the fight in decent shape. No matter how novice he looks. He will be able to go the 15 minutes if need be wthout suffering a stroke. We can give CM Punk and Duke Roufusport that much. CM Punk will do better because hes performed on the largest stage before as the main event several times. Yes it was in fake fighting. But real things and injuries do happen. The show must go on. Prowrestling don't get multiple takes like in the movies. They get one take to get it right. So I don't feel nerves would be enough to gas Phil out.

    I think you can only legitimately complain about Punk if he ever actually fights in the UFC, which seems increasingly less likely.

    I agree that CM Punk is a complete joke. Kimbo and Dada 5000 are actually fighters.

    As they should, but I'm targeting people that use this fight as a way to say UFC is great, and Bellator has no credibility based on last night. Shit, there are some in this very thread

    Wait, people haven't been shitting all over the UFC about Punk since he signed with them?

    You must be new here...

    We've been crapping on the UFc's decision to bring in CM Punk since it was first announced.

    What makes you think that.

    As primitive as both guys were - at least they've fought. CM just keeps hyping himself up, verbally fighting with fans and media, and backing out.

    Because the 2 main events were freak show and awful. Dada and kimbo looked like 2 drunks and gassed after 2 mins, plus dada had a heart attack.

    In the main event it was 2 old aged pensioners stumbling around the ring, one of them had 2 knee braces on.

    If you think that's a good advertisement for bellator then you are wrong
