Agreed. Bautista had trouble against some obese looking no-name fighter. He would get wrecked by anyone with real skills.

Just watched it on youtube, it was terrible. I also think Lauzon should just stick to fighting.

Seriously...if you're going to fight a fat guy, at least make it a big name fat guy like Butterbean or Tim Sylvia.

And that was just all around awful. Bautista's striking sucked and many he likes to punch the back of heads. Also yeah Lauzon wasn't great with that interview but outside of fighting, he's a nerdy gamer so what can you expect?

That was god awful. I almost stopped watching as soon as the fat guy started waving. Bautista will not go anywhere in MMA.

I'm not suprised hes awful. I laughed at the rumors of his "muay thai" background. Give me a break.

The invictafc 3 event was really solid last night. It is a good product. The fights are exciting and the girls really know how to brand themselves. I am looking forward to 4.

The fat guy was a late replacement, still a terrible fight though.

Good on Bautista for giving it a shot, I've watched interviews with him & he is doing it for the live of the sport.

I'm not gonna trash a guy for showing drive & attaining a goal, I'm not gonna watch his fights either though.

Let him fight Bobby Lashley next, there is some $$s to be made off the WWE fans.

This is just disturbing and sad. It seems like Mayhem is actually losing his sense of reality. I know Dana has said that he was on some meds before, most likely to do with mental/personality issues (pure speculation from me but based off DW's quotes after him and Mayhem's twitter altercation, seems to be accurate) but who knows whats going on now. I watched the whole thing and man was it hard to watch as a former fan of his.

This latest showing of Mayhem really has me bummed out. I wish more in the fighting community would reach out to him (already may have behind the scenes).

More disturbing than I anticipated, Ariel stays rather composed despite the subtle and not so subtle racial jabs. Mayhem has some really serious issues to put it mildly.

That was so awkward. I used to really like Mayhem, he was a quirky guy that was actually pretty decent in the cage. He seems to have completely lost it though. Ariel did an amazing job keeping his composure as that whole thing was just...weird.

Something really is wrong with Mayhem.

Before this him and Ariel were friends. Miller was one of the first fighters to support Helwani and even wrote letter to US immigration to help him when Ariel was applying for a green card. Now he is on the his show threatening him and making racial comments.


But if it was all an act someone he considers a friend like Helwani might be the most likely to be in on it.

It seems like an act to me, almost Charlie Sheen-esque. Mayhem is a really smart guy.

Ariel says he wasn't in on it....

@arielhelwani: Thank u for your feedback from today. All I really wanna say is if you think I was in on that in any way, that's quite hurtful. Had no idea.
This guy seriously needs help. He has never been funny and has always acted like a moron but this was just sad and pathetic. Making some racist comments, throwing stuff around, messing up Ariel's studio and set up, etc. What a bum.

Eh, that was odd but it was nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. Pretty boring actually. The first minute and the last minute are all that's worth watching.

Ariel and Mayhem go way back, really felt for Ariel watching the original 'interview' and especially after watching the aftermath.

Wow, I don't even know what to make of that interview. I think it's pretty clear that Ariel was not in on it if this was some sort of "act" from Mayhem. Helwani looked visibly uncomfortable throughout the interview but he handled it really well.

After the interview it looked like Ariel was about to cry.

How Dana was defending this guy just makes him a complete moron. How can you defend and try to get this guy out of jail?
