    I thought Kennedy was meant to be fighting Kai Kamaka?

    Anyway this is a better fight imo. Good to see Killys dropping back to LW too, he's too small for WW.

    Kamaka responded to the tweet with a fire emoji. I think he trains with Kennedy

    "There were some reports on Russia social media that one of the most overlooked fighters in Bellator, Alexander Shabily, would fight former UFC fighter Myles Jury next. I’m not sure if those reports were accurate or if something simply changed, but a promotion official tells me Shabliy (20-3 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) will instead fight Bobby King (10-3 MMA, 1-0 BMMA). The two will fight at Bellator 272 on Dec. 3, which takes place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn."

    OK, Shabliy shoukd definitely leave Bellator ASAP. They just dont know how to market top talent or what do with it. I have no idea why Bellator is treating Shabliy like a chump, but they have 0 clue about what they are doing. Seriously? Bobby fucking King? The guy who barely managed to eek out a split against Nick Newell...

    Lol reports from Shabliy himself that he was facing Myles Jury!

    WHY FUCKING BOBBY KING!!!! Like what does this matchup do for Shabliy. Like who gives a fuck about wins or losses, really, all the guys in the top 10 of the UFC have like 50/50 records in the UFC. Put on great bouts not this. Hope he leaves as well, but he has two more bouts, unless the next one is against the loser of Queally/Patricky and the last against the champ, he should leave. They fucked it up already since they could have gotten him into the rankings with the Jury bout

    Clown show going on. They have botched every opportunity to get Shabliy a decent fight.

    Imagine being promised a fight in Moscow and then that fight not happening. Then having the opportunity to fight against top opposition (Eldarov) just to get that fight blocked, so he can fight Bobby fucking King...madness.

    To be fair, I think the Eldarov thing was just supposed to be a grappling bout, but still. Like which opponents for Nallo and Shabliy and it would be better. Shabliy vs.Moret and Nallo vs. Bobby King are fine bouts

    Collin Huckbody is pretty good, weird bout rankings wise but it's competitive

    I personally think Eblen has his way with Huckbody but it's his probably his stiffest test yet.
