I haven't watched the prelims but the main card was terrible. The Riddle fight was OK but the rest sub par. Lombard was a huge disappointment after all the hype i had heard about him (i don't watch Bellator that much). Aside from a puncher chance there is no way in hell that this guy beat Anderson Silva none whatsoever (some people claimed he could be the guy). He's too small , doesn't move his feet and would get counter striked to death. He would get KOed/TKOed in the first two rounds.
Faber vs Barao wasn't THAT bad but it wasn't that good either. Pretty average technical striking battle with Barao being clearly the superior guy. Was disappointed by Faber , he didn't seem to know what to do and had no answer at all on the feet. I knew he was done when he couldn't bring Barao down.
As i said haven,t watched the prelims but as far as the main card is concerned i'd give it a 3/10 and i feel like im being generous.
Damn, I forgot to make my picks for this one. That might be a good thing though since I would've went 4-7 on the night.
Like everyone else said, just a ****** ppv. I liked the Ridle/Clements fight but everything else sucked. A couple good finishes on the prelims at least.
The announcers mentioned that Ebersole is already cutting weight to move down to 155 and that might be the reason he looked so lethargic out there. I hope that's the case as I've enjoyed his other fights in the UFC.
Has Lombard answered any questions regarding his health or gameplan? Anything specifically about his footwork or not moving forward? His performance was one of the most baffling things I've seen in recent memory.
