It's too bad Mark can't get over himself, he's got a great thing going with the MFC. If he'd just shut his mouth and continue to put forth a great product he'd gain far more legitimacy, IMO.
More than anything, he just strikes me as someone whose a bad boss and not someone I'd want to work for. He's had success but he takes every business move against him as a personal insult. I like the product MFC puts out but I would be surprised if fighters ever show a lot of loyalty to him with his attitude.
Konrad/Buentello is one of the worst fights i've ever seen in my life
It didn't seem like Buentello even wanted to be there. Kind of like a number of his recent performances. Dude needs to hang up the gloves. It was good for Konrad to stand up with him for two rounds and get some in-fight experience striking. He's still extremely raw, but I thought he did show some talent. If can learn to land that jab, it will be big for him. It was really quick.
The opening round of what might be their best tournament to date goes Saturday (busy night for the MMA fan).
Location: Atlantic City, New Jersey
Venue: Ceasars Atlantic City
Broadcast: MTV2 and Spike.com
MAIN CARD (MTV2)
Dan Hornbuckle vs. Luis Santos (welterweight-tourney opening round)
Chris Cisneros vs. Ben Saunders (welterweight-tourney opening round)
Chris Lozano vs. Brent Weedman (welterweight-tourney opening round)
Steve Carl vs. Douglas Lima (welterweight-tourney opening round)
I hope Lima can carry his MFC success over to Bellator, he was such a beast in the MFC. The rest of the opening round should be good, Lozano, Hornbuckle and Saunders generally put on exciting fights.

I should've known about Bellator running over the 2 hours and adding extra on my DVR, rookie mistake. Between Bellator, Strikeforce on HDnet, and having a brutal time finding a consistent online stream for Strikeforce it was a bit overwhelming trying to figure out ways to catch every second of MMA.
