In Topic: Lou is New Toronto GM

Really never expected this to happen but good for Lou. If he still has the drive and passion then I'm happy for him to get another opportunity. It will be interesting to see how things go in Toronto with the mix of new and old school voices in management. I think this was a nice clean break for Lou and the Devils. I'm happy for both parties.

About to watch the Scotland card in a bit. Going back to FN: Mir vs. Duffee, I gotta say that is why I love to watch heavyweights. Completely reckless but you know you are going to see a KO. Jouban vs. Dwyer was also a really awesome fight. Ferguson made a big statement in his fight and now has won 6 in a row and 8 of his last 9 since moving back to lightweight. Holm may have lacked the killer instinct but I liked the way she controlled that fight. No doubt she can learn a lot from this one moving forward. I just hope they don't rush here, let her steadily fight here way up the rankings.

Bellator 140 was really awesome last night. 9 out of 12 fights ended in a finish. The only letdown was Honeycutt vs. Bradley ending with an accidental headbutt and ruled a no contest. Koreshkov was methodical, but not necessarily exciting in winning the welterweight title. 2 of my favorite guys just because of their huge personalities, Michael Page and Brennan Ward had KO wins, though they didn't face the best quality of opponents. Still a lot of fun to watch.

I still got Legacy 43 on the DVR to watch after the UFC Scotland event. One Championship 29 too (gotta love soccer kicks!).

Luckily I was able to find a smooth stream for the 2 title fights and holy sh!t did they not disappoint!

Lawler - MacDonald was an instant classic! At one point it seemed inevitable for Rory to get the finish and belt. Great recovery and finish by Lawler in the 5th round when he was down on the judges scorecards! I have no idea what's next for Lawler but I hope we see Lawler - MacDonald 3 someday.

I honestly was worried that McGregor's showboating would come back to haunt him. Mendes had that first round in my opinion and was doing well to get his takedowns. Great job by McGregor to get back to his feet late in the 2nd and then finish him off with seconds to spare. I know McGregor talks a lot of sh!t but I really do think he has respect for Mendes, especially after tonight. Hats off to both fighters!

This event went from being a bit of a letdown with 5 decisions and some boring fights to start the card to an instant classic with 6 finishes in a row and 2 entertaining title fights!

Don't forget that the TUF Finale is Sunday night as well as UFC Fight Night: Mir vs. Duffee on Wednesday and UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Leites on Saturday!

Another awesome finish with Stephens over Bermudez. That fight looked good but my stream was really choppy so I missed a lot of it. I'll enjoy it more when I download the event tomorrow.
