bean vs tengiz?

cool to see herb stepping back in though.. just watched his last fight from october .. he looked good coming out, gassed out at the end of the first, came out decent in the second.. his standup looks alright, he gets sloppy and loses his composure as the fight goes on though.. good sub defense though.. took homeboy four tries to get the keylock on him.. should be an interesting fight against legeno

TENGIZ!! A FELLOW GEORGIAN!! (im georgian)

my family (if possible) will be ordering this for sure

the rest of the card besides mario sperry and i guess herb dean is lackluster

Man I can not wait to see Sperry fight again, he's one of my all time fav's.. I was afraid he retired after his last fight.

Be good to see Lee Hadsell back.

Arguably Britain's pioneer in terms of mma.

Tough fight for him though.

This is an interesting line up. Looking forward to seeing the Bean against Tengiz though i do feel that Tengiz will take the fight. Looking further down the card, Broughton vs Turner should be a great fight, and Turner will find it much tougher against Broughton than he did against "Tank", although it will be a different style of fight.

If Herb's in any way a competent fighter, he'll be able to handle Legeno with ease. I really don't think he belongs in the sport, and has wins over the one-dimensional Kimo, and the aging Severn. (The Kimo fight was a farce)

It'll also be interesting to see how James McSweeny makes the transition from straight Kick-boxing to MMA. He did well in the 1st round against Michael McDonald at CR21, but after that, he seemed gas and ran out of ideas.

Ronnie Mann vs Robbie Olivier is my pick for fight of the night here, and i can see Olivier taking this, hopefully setting up a fight against the undefeated Alex Owen (who defeated former British FW champion Brad Fickett in his last fight).

I'd like to see perhaps another big name or two added to the card to help bring in the crowd, and there are more than likely to be a few more fights added (ATM there are only 11 announced whereas i think CR usually does 13) but nevertheless i'll be there, front row, centre.

Ive benn impressed with the last few CR fight cards. Obviously they arent up to UFC or Pride standards, but still a half decent card. Looking forward to seeing Mario Sperry fighting again.

Or any news if they're going to broadcast it on ION the following weekend like 21?

Is that proelite thing free? Do I have to download something for it? Do they have decent picture quality? Is it worth it?

What you have to do is just make an account and its free. You can watch it live and its pretty fun. Ive watched Icon-Trigg/Lawler...No Limits proving ground and 1 other on mine. They got a good thing going. My account is flyinghippo123 on there (dont ask)
