In this edition of Leave The Memories Alone, Samer Kadi and I discuss this past weekend’s Bellator PPV; how Tito Ortiz actually won a fight in 2014, Rampage vs. King Mo, and booking their next PPV. Plus, we’ll talk about the NBA Playoffs and how Scott Brooks is still terrible, debate John Stockton vs. Isiah Thomas, NBA coaching trends and more.
There’s an article on ESPN titled, “Bellator ready to deal Ben Askren to UFC.” When I read this, my sports fandom kicked in and I immediately thought that Bellator was going to trade Askren to the UFC. Maybe they’d get some future TUF prospects, cash, a couple of depth fighters, who knows. I just know that I was excited because, as my twitter followers can attest to, I love trades. Unfortunately, this article didn’t mention any trades, but it did give me the idea for this column.
Let’s pretend that the UFC and other organizations could trade fighters. UFC has too many fighters and some bad contracts that I’m sure they’d like to offload and other organizations could use some depth or name fighters that can’t compete at a UFC level anymore.
Thoughts on the half year in MMA.
My thoughts on Bellator’s debut on SpikeTV and what the future holds.
Jade Bryce joins the Man Cave to talk Bellator MMA and her charity work. We’ll talk about Bellator moving to SpikeTV and Jade’s favorite fighters before discussing her trips overseas, how she was chased through the jungle, her plans for a book, and all the great charity work she’s done over the years.
The Keith Olbermann of MMA, Samer Kadi, joins the Man Cave to preview UFC on Fuel TV 3 and talk about various news items from around the MMA world. We’ll quickly rundown this Tuesday’s UFC card that has a relevant main event between The Korean Zombie and Dustin Poirier, a fun fight between Donald Cerrone and Jeremy Stephens, and then a bunch of fights that might be good but are lacking interest. Then we’ll talk about the poor UFC on FOX 3 ratings and Lorenzo Feritta’s bad excuse plus King Mo’s new deal with TNA and Bellator.
