    0-12 isn’t so bad. It’s all the way you look at it. I mean with just a simple juggling of the numbers she could be 12-0. It’s perception.

    How could anyone ever think an 0-12 fighter would get sanctioned. I mean that’s almost as ludicrous as thinking an 0-0 boxer would get a license against a 49-0 boxer.

    Yup. If we look at both of Punk's fights:

    Mickey Gall (2-0) vs CM Punk (0-0)

    Michael Jackson (0-1) vs CM Punk (0-1)

    Gall had a 3-0 amateur record and Jackson a 1-0 amateur record. Punk did not have any amateur fights.

    That is nowhere near what Bellator is doing by attempting to put a 2-1 amateur against an 0-12 amateur.

    Thank fuck for athletic commissions.

    This was ridiculous
    But I’m old enough to remember the UFC giving #1 contender Chuck Liddell a 20-25-2 fighter Vernon White. White was 0-2-1 in previous 3 and the win gave Liddell another title shot at Couture.

    So you are comparing 2019 Bellator to 1995 UFC? Thanks for proving OP right once again.

    Yes I’m comparing and 11 year old ufc 1993-2004
    To a 10 year old Bellator 2009-2019

    Also I said it was ridiculous

    It is ridiculous to compare a company that started on the coat tails of the company that started it all. They don't even try to pull that shit in Legacy.

    I wasn’t trying to make any point. I was simply poking fun at the Phil Brooks experiment, not trying to defend Bellator. I want a good product regardless of the promotion.

    the biggest fight show, imo, should get grief for their shitty decisions. all the smaller shows need to be supported to help them just break even and stay in the game. when they are a true rival to the ufc, shit on them as much as you like :)

    Oddly enough that's basically how their champ was discovered by the MMA community early in her career as well...

    I’m just saying that beating up people that shouldn’t be in the cage may be a great measuring stick.

    I think there's definite upside to feeding young fighters with massive potential cans, you just have to be more realistic about it. Whoever thought '0-12 amateur record fits the bill' fucked up and rightfully got called out on it.

    I have spent at least 20% of my adult life at Club Liv.

    This chick is not very hot.
