Bellator 82 Quick Results

Bellator 82 kicked off last night and featured a pivotal welterweight bout between Lyman Good and Andrey Koreshkov.  Both fighters fought their hearts out, but it was Koreshkov who ultimately was awarded the unanimous decision.  Andrey just seemed to get the better of the exchanges on the feet, and even controlled some aspects of the grappling when the fight hit the mat.

With this win, Koreshkov is the welterweight season winner this year, and also will be able to fight Ben Askren for the championship later on down the road.

Also, former WEC light heavyweight champion made his Bellator debut last night against Kala House and delivered an emphatic KO in the first round.  Coming into this fight, Marshall wanted to make a statement because it had been years since he had fought in such a big promotion.

Previously, Marshall was champion under the WEC banner, defending his belt twice before being derailed by the heavy hitter Brian Stann.  Marshall has been known for his knockout power, and he certainly proved it last night at Bellator 82, knocking House out as he was moving backward.

Marshall is now 15-6 in his MMA career, and he will look to make a splash in the Bellator middleweight division.  The current Bellator middleweight champion is Alexander Shlemenko, and he is one of the most experienced fighter under the Bellator banner.

Marshall makes for a great addition to this promotion, and it will be interesting to see if he continue his climb in hopes of challenging Shlemenko for the title.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.

Ronda Rousey’s Coach Breaks Silence on KO Loss to Holly Holm

We haven’t heard much from Ronda Rousey or her camp about the loss Rousey suffered to Holly Holm in November. Sure Rousey recently hosted Saturday Night Live and briefly addressed her UFC 193 knockout loss in her monologue but as far as detailed comments on the fight there has been mostly silence. That changed earlier this week when Rousey’s trainer Edmond Tarverdyan spoke to ESPN. Tarverdyan took a lot of heat in the days following the fight. Most of that heat was generated when his fighter bloodied and breathing from her mouth sat down on her stool at the end of Round 1.

Dana White Responds to Jose Aldo’s Demand for Conor McGregor Rematch

On Thursday UFC president Dana White appearing on the “Opie and Jim Norton” radio show said “It’s one of those things; we made the fight the first time and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away. Plus Conor wants to be a two-belt champion so he wants to fight dos Anjos.” While White didn’t totally rule out an Aldo versus McGregor rematch his comments make the fight seem unlikely. McGregor’s next fight will take place on March 5 when he moves up to lightweight to try and capture Rafael dos Anjos’ title.
