    Ok I know bellator wants to do their own thing but get better camera angles and would it hurt to play a little music?

    Pumped for tonight. Pashak's did you see their prime time show entitled the "Russian invasion"? It was pretty good.

    Awesome seeing the two Missouri boys fighting back to back!

    This is a great card! I'll be watching it over teh weekend, so I'll have to hide from the forums or at least some of the threads.

    I actually believe that in few years, Russia will be a very very big potence in MMA. Bellattor already has some very good russian prospects, and there are a couple of Dagestanis in the UFC that look like solid championship material.

    Askren is considered to be a (very boring) beast, and is definitely the favorite to win. But Koreshkov is not a joke, and if he loses, I hope that he makes a good fight.

    My bjj instructor says askren plays the disc gold barefoot.

    Can't wait for these fights. The askren fight will be interesting. Schlemenko has some killers coming out of there.

    Ben Askrin was on team Discraft and has placed 2nd (2011) in a US amature championship tournament and 9th (2009) in the amature worlds.
