    Cindy Dandois? Why does Bellator keep doing this. She is TERRIBLE.

    Good main event, Davis/Nemkov is very good. Other two fights suck.

    Anyone who has seen her fight knows this but people keep saying how UFC needed to sign her pretty much cause she's like the only FW out there.

    Theres a reason she didnt even make it on TUF. Dont care what she's ranked or that she beat Anderson a while ago, she's just not good at all. Her lone UFC fight was one of the worst ever.

    Couture - Haim 2 could be fun due to their low level of striking, if they choose to keep it standing. If the fight goes to the ground they both are well versed on the ground so should be kinda fun.

    She's a great grappler, but yeah, her striking is a throwback to Severn's.

    Still, it's not a bad signing for Bellator at all considering that Cindy is one of the best FW's out there, for better or for worse.

    For the hope that one of the most famous Israeli fighters wins the rematch in front of the home crowd.

    Rubin is green, but if she beats Dandois, some WFW waves are going to be created

    So terrible that she has beaten Marloes Conen, Jorina Baars, Megan Anderson and King Reina. You may not like her style, just like people don't like Jon Fitch's style. But they win, consistently with their fighting styles. And Cindy Dandois is a name in Women's MMA.

    Every time Bellator takes a step forward, Patricio Pitbull Freire vs Emmanuel Sanchez, Phil Davis vs Vadim Nemkov, Cindy Dandois vs Olga Rubin, Scott Coker and the Bellator staff takes a big step backwards, Ryan Couture vs Haim Gozali, every single time. Not one fan was asking to see a rematch of that fight. But Scott Coker and the Bellator staff puts it on a card anyway. I really hope Couture or Gozali pulls out because of injury or whatever.

    You don't know Israeli MMA fans.

    Haim Gozali is one of their most famous fighters, and they would love him to avenge his loss..

    Couture trying to live a legacy he will never be successful at. Hope he doesnt take another KO.

    Doubt that, Gozali is not really a striker. He is, like most Israeli MMA fighters, a one-dimensional BJJ specialist.

    She has Aoki level striking, but once upon a time, everyone here was jerking off to his rainbow [email protected] pants, when his striking was at its worst.

    Kinda sad how low his ceiling is. He was the reason why I watched Strikeforce Challengers just to see how good Couture's boy is.
