  1. Sorry guys love the show but you have to watch wonderboys punches in slo mo… darren was evading them at the end of em kinda like rolling with em but backwards barely landed any and tills face was proof, not a scratch on him. With that said.. boring fight. Both of them shoulda went harder

  2. Is this women one of Darren’s exes or something, dam she is salty. It was a close decision win no massive controversy so stop hyping it up like it is. Give Till some credit for a great performance I mean how many people have you seen knock down your precious Stephen.

  4. It's been four years for Bellator under the Scott Coker regime and it's been way past time for MVP to be matched up with a Bellator step up welterweight opponent. Match him up against Andrey Koreshkov or Douglas Lima. Or even Lorenz Larkin or Jon Fitch. Even constantly disappointing Brennan Ward would be a step opponent for MVP. Chidi Njokuani moved up to middleweight after losing to Andrey Koreshkov in August 2017.

    • Ditto. I so agree. David Rickels is normally a lightweight fighter. That was so set up for MVP to win. Its like MVP has been cuddled his whole career. he spent majority in Bellator. He is something like 13-0 and 9-0 in Bellator. I dont know if its me but his shtick gets old after a while.

    • Joseph Boza David Rickels is basically a MMA fighter susceptible to getting knocked out when he steps up against better opponents in his Bellator career, twice to Michael Chandler, once to Patricky Pitbull Freire, and once to Melvin Guillard, which was ruled a no contest, but the cutting off of his brain still actually happened, and now MVP. The only measure of Michael Venom Page against a tough opponent has been against Fernando Gonzalez, which MVP didn't want to engage for the entire fight. It was just a pitiful performance.

  5. Karyn you and Michael bisping remind me of how me and my sister are. Constsntly bickering and giving eachother a hard timw. But you can tell you guys really like eachother. Is this a correct assumption?
