Moving to New York tomorrow, to focus pretty much exclusively on the MMA marketing for DAZN. Bricking it. But, too good of an opportunity to turn down I guess! If streaming of live sports is

Was a wonderful night, Magic. I remember at one stage during the 2nd round of the Scope/Queally fight, my nephew turning to me with a look of panic in his face saying "It's going to get stopped" but

They have released quite a few European fighters over the past few days. So it looks like they will be scaling back the Euro Series series. Makes sense, given that they plan to only run 2 shows per month from now on. 

Also, Julius Anglickas, Steve Mowry, and Karl Albrektsson vs Viktor Nemkov have all been added to next week's card. Can we just skip to that card already please?

Coker said last weekend that we would soon hear something about Lima's next title defence. I was a bit worried that MVP would get the title shot over Amosov.

But this Tweet sounds promising:

For anyone wondering why I get such a hard-on over Amosov, I highly recommend watching his fight with Storley, which I have linked below. Keep in mind, that Ed Gallo (The Fight Site's wrestling expect) accurately predicted beforehand that Storley would be a tougher match-up for Amosov than Ruth. Gallo argued that Storley's style of wrestling has translated to MMA better than Ruth. Storley's takedowns are more intentional, and when he gets his opponent to the mat he is generally better than Ruth at keeping them there. 

Yet, Amosov was able to comprehensively shutdown Storley's wrestling for the first 2 rounds, and also managed to do so for much of the third round. Granted, Storley did rally late at the end of the 3rd frame and almost submitted Amosov, but over the 15 minutes I think Amosov more than did enough to deserve the decision. I genuinely think that Amosov is the best wrestler at 170lbs with the exception of Usman, and will have few issues with Lima who I think is made for him style wise.
