Famous JiuJitsu Guys/Women Complain About $$$.....don't show up to do cash events

Hard to put much stock in their complaints when they a dearth of them live nearby and simply don't show up. 

Weekend MMA Round-Up: UFC Japan Friday, Bellator Saturday

Lots of good stuff this weekend. Despite Shogun's unfortunate pullout of the event, OSP will face Okami, Takanori Gomi (yes he still has a job) will face Dong Hyun Kim (once upon a time it looked like he'd fight for the belt), Saki will make his UFC debut after an insane kickboxing career, and given the short list of real contenders, Andrade faces Gadelha because a few wins is all it takes for a title shot in some of the women's divisions. 

Saturday we get some solid Bellator action with Benson Henderson facing Patricky Friere, Roy Nelson punching the clock, and for the 3 minutes it will last, shell shocked Paul Daley facing Lorenz Larkin....and Aaron Pico will try to not get guillotined sub two minutes.

All sarcasm aside, I'm sure the underwhelming rosters will still produce some stoppages as a number of these guys are shopworn or simply prone to getting stopped at those stage in their career.

Heather Hardy gets debuting Pro fighter with 3 amateur fight bkgrd

Gotta love watching someone with double digit pro boxing experience fighting someone with 3 amateur mma bouts to their credit. 

Seeing her struggle to put away her opponent in on the Bellator PPV last time around was a less than auspicious debut for mma pro level but at least she didn't get Aaron Pico'd. Fortunately she fought a woman with literally no wrestling acumen whose main gameplan was to walk forward I guess?
