    Thought this was a good read, they sort of became infamous for the video of Pat Cummins beating 0-3 Ricky Pulu prior to the Cormier fight.

    Neves also. But he looked pretty impressive in his Bellator debut. So while records don't tell the whole story, they don't tell the whole story either. ;)

    Reinhardt and Neves are mentioned in the article.

    On one hand, I don't necessarily feel like it's the worst thing in the world to bring prospects along slowly but this organization really doesn't do that. It seems to just mainly be mid level fighters repeatedly getting easy first round stoppages over winless opponents before getting signed to Bellator or the UFC with no decent competition in between.

    The problem is that out on the Indian reservations, they do whatever the fuck they want so it's really up to the fighter to get himself ready for the next level before moving on. In the meantime, the guy who runs Xplode will continue making bank while many of these undefeated fighters will have a hard time even getting sanctioned for a fight against someone decent because a real athletic commission will actually look at their record.

    He's a boxer, and people are surprised he's padding his record against absolute cans?

    It then begs the question if the ufc matchmakers did their due diligence, or if they just simply thought it wouldn't be noticed?
