as always in bellator, the dogs could all be barkin'
lookin forward to yr UFC thread, bro
I was on Thiago Michel fairly big in his win over Nazare, but I was not impressed with him at all. He was way too passive, and was very lucky to get the split decision victory.
Weedman is normally fairly aggressive, but his game planning/fight IQ is mind boggling at times. He makes a lot of poor decisions (past examples include not pouncing on a rocked opponent, wrestling the f*ck out of a guy in round one, then stands and bangs for the remaining two rounds while attempting zero takedowns and loses a decision, etc)
Bottom line, based on skill set, I would lean Weedman as he is the better all around fighter, but I think it is best to stay far away from this one...
