I'm looking forward to the tournament with or without Daley

Not negative, more of a realist imo
I'm hoping we see him smashed bahahaha but him pulling out is a big possibility

He didn't even want to take the Rickels fight and preferred to carry on boxing, but Coker told him he had to do an MMA contest. Crazy. The fact that they reset him in boxing so he could fight a bunch of cans really gets on my nerves too .. it wasn't necessary. You could understand for someone like Kimbo Slice because his standup was never that good anyway and he even struggled against some of the cans he faced, (well at least 1) plus he'd been KO'd by a jab in MMA .. but MVP? he needed a challenge not just someone for easy target practice.

Hopefully this tournament is going to force his hand, but can you imagine if Coker did match him with Gracie, MVP won then pulled out citing a hand injury :mrgreen:

it's on!!

Rory MacDonald vs. Jon Fitch

Paul Daley vs. Michael Page

Douglas Lima vs. Andrey Koreshkov

Neiman Gracie vs. Ed Ruth

*Lorenz Larkin vs. Yaroslav Amosov


I can't believe they went with sensible matchups.
