I thought Galvao was dangerous enough on the ground attempting submissions in the 1st to get the round, but yeah it wasn't an overly eventful round.

Terrible rating. Hopefully this is a one off, or Bellator is officially ****ed.

Warren will beat Pitbull in a 5 round fight. And I am a huge Pitbull mark.

Entertaining fight between Linderman and Hale. I personally had it 29-28 for Linderman, but am not at all surprised Hale got two rounds from two of the judges. I would be interested to see which round each of those two judges gave him. I'm guessing the first, since it looked like he rocked Linderman at one point.

Yeah, I enjoyed the main event. A really weak card on paper though, losing the main event hurt. Hale is intriguing to me with his size though.

Their ratings rebounded in a major way, though. They have some seriously weird ratings.

So Jay Hieron somehow gets two brutal decisions in a row.

Good jorb Bellator.

Only there can you lose your last two fights in the tourney and advance to fight the champion.

What a ****ing joke.

Yeah, Bellator should totally fire their judges and hire some sort of commission to do it!

The announcers made some sort of comment about how the judges were hired by the reservation, not the Oklahoma state athletic commission. Seeing as nearly all their shows take place at casinos on reservations, that probably means this is the case for most of their cards. They're going to have to change that part of their business model or they're going to collapse. Fans can only take so many poor decisions before they give up.

Blaming a particular organization, Bellator in this case, doesn't make any sense. The problems obviously run much deeper, regardless of where the judges are coming from or whose supplying them. They've had questionable results wth experienced guys as well recently, so where the judges are coming from doesn't seem to matter.

I've always suspected Bellator venue shops in order to avoid commissions prone to giving out medical suspensions (for quarter and semifinals in their tournaments).

I guess that the judging problems have been an unfortunate side effect of that.

For the followers of MFC, looks like Bellator found next seasons WW champion.

This is great news, Lima is such an entertaining/skilled fighter.

For sure, hopefully a stint on the bellator stage attracts the eyes of the UFC.

Lombard with another clean, somewhat highlight reel KO last night. This time it was somewhat of a step up in competition for him, though Falaniko Vitale's best days are certainly behind him.



Now that Strikeforce has been snapped up by Zuffa, his options are pretty limited in terms of good competition. Some of the guys from Strikeforce can probably still compete for Dream, so unless he's content fighting cans, or walking away from the big-fish-small-pond setting, his manager needs to work something out with them to keep him relevant.

There's a ton of great defensive fighters in the UFC who would easily stifle his run-and-gun style en route to a decision, and I wonder if he realizes this and is leery about making the jump. That said, I imagine he'd have some fun fights with guys like Leben, Silva, Stann, and Bisping; guys who will stand with him. Of course, I'm sure he's enjoying making a good amount of money without really breaking a sweat in Bellator as well.

UFC already has enough boring fighters. He needs them more than they need him.

You think Lombard is boring?

Anyways, good show last night. I actually had Round 2 for Pitbull, but I would have to watch it again since I was in the minority.

Schlemenko vs. Cooper was an awesome fight.

Lombard is definitely not a boring fighter.

Good main event with a surprising outcome. I thought the Pitbull brothers were both gonna win their tournies. Very close score, thanks to the repeated ball kicks, but I don't think there was much doubt what would have happened in an OT round.

I have no problem with Chandler getting the win but I have a huge problem with the 30-27 score(ignoring the point deduction), he didn't post a goose egg. Bellator's judging continues to be a problem.

Awesome KO by Lombard, I loved the wave after the shot.

First fight was awesome last night.

Definitely thought Pitbull won his fight, but absolutely not 30-27. He didn't do jack in the 1st round

Good showing my M'Pumbu in the 1st and 3rd rounds.

M'pumbu is definitely one of my favourites from this season. Dont know how much of a future he has but damn, dude has some heavy hands.

I remember them saying he walks around at fight weight too. No weight cutting.

And ya, the first fight was sick. It looked like someone slaughtered a steer in the cage. Lots of heart shown by that guy (dont remember his name).

He fought a weird fight last night. He did very little other than his shots that dropped Hale. He wasn't active at all but he made the shots he threw count.

How did Pavelich take the news? I can only assume he went on a foolish tirade!
