I'm not sure who Bob Sapp's management is, but they are absolutely magical. After consistently turning in some of the most highly suspect main card performances in recent memory, it seems that overseas promoters still love Sapp.

I'm absolutely stoked that Megumi Fujii is fighting on another Bellator card. Mega Megu meets Jessica Aguilar in a fight pitting the #1 and #4 ranked women's straw weight fighters (although the bout will be contested at 125).

Jesse Taylor gets a shot at the Cage Warriors Welterweight Title when he meets Gael Grimaud in Bahrain at Cage Warriors Fight Night 6. I'm pushing for JT to get this win and possibly get back into one of the big shows, and dropping back down to 170 after fighting all the way up at 205 is a good sign.
