Bellator MMA Thread - Bellator 212/213 (Dec 14th/15th)

Recommended Posts

heres the lineups for another double bill this weekend...im yet to see 210/211 but i will get there:

B213_1920x1080_announce.jpg?quality=0.85

Brent Primus vs. Michael Chandler - Lightweight Title Fight

Frank Mir vs. Javi Ayala

AJ McKee vs. Daniel Crawford

Derek Campos vs. Sam Sicilia

Alejandra Lara vs. Juliana Vasquez

prelims:

Tywan Claxton vs. Kaeo Maya

Robson Gracie vs. Bryson Bolohau

Brandon Pieper vs. Chris Avila

Toby Misech vs. Edward Thommes

Paul Lopes vs. Nick Bandis

* The main event is a long time coming. Primus beat Chandler to win the belt in June 2017 but has been out since. Bellator aren't quick to strip people but Primus had to be close. The first fight ended when Chandler suffered a freak leg injury. Cant see anything past Chandler retaining.

* Rest of the card is a great mix of veterans, Bellator mainstays and prospects. The prelims continue to have some interesting additions. Not sure if Bellator are trying to encourage people to tune in but Tywan Claxton is there and hes one of the most exciting new guys on the roster, strange to see these guys take steps backwards in terms of fight placement.

Nick Diaz' mate Chris Avila is there too, looking at his record though hes lost 5 on the bounce.

Here's 213:

B214_1920x1080_announce.jpg?quality=0.85

Ilima-Lei McFarlane vs. Valerie Letourneau - Womens Flyweight Title

Lyoto Machida vs. Rafael Carvalho

Neiman Gracie vs. Ed Ruth - Welterweight Grand Prix

Mo Lawal vs. Liam McGeary

Kona Oliveira vs. Nainoa Dung

* 213 is a DAZN flagpole type event. Some quality there as well, the show being in Hawaii is great too. Never understood why the UFC never tried to get back into that market, one of the pioneering MMA hotbeds.

Jam packed weekend.

Patricky Pitbull Friere (not the FW champion one, that's his brother Patricio, both called Pitbull) is fighting former BAMMA champion Ryan Scope (11-1) in the main event of the Newcastle show, Aaron Chambers of Geordie Shore co-headlines, this won't air on TV in the States (unless DAZN pick it up), it's a regional western Europe series, they will do 10 in 2019 on 5Spike that aren't part of the normal Bellator circuit.

 

yeh im liking the idea of those shows, they've also announced a February one in Dublin with James Gallagher headlining. Take a known ticket seller, put him on top or in the co-main event of a Bellator branded show and you'll likely do some good business. Scope & Chalmers in Newcastle, Gallagher in Ireland, and they do similar stuff in Italy with Alessio Sakara.
