Now that Bellator has signed 19-year-old Julio Cesar Neves, let's look a recent bout from his 28-0 career

Now that Bellator has signed 19-year-old Julio Cesar Neves, let's look a recent bout from his 28-0 career

His MMA record reads like an unlockable character in Tekken. Back in February he knocked out a dude with a flying knee in just thirty-seven seconds. Earlier this year he TKOd a guy at CTA Combat in just over a minute. In fact in his last nine fights he finished all of them. Wait, there's still some more of your mind to be blown, I see it there -- cowering in the back of your skull. He's already fought seventeen times this year and he's only been past the first round only once in 2013. In his 28-0 career he's only been to the judges twice. That's twenty-five finishes in a twenty-fight career.

Julio Cesar Neves -- we would like to believe he's a real person, but for all we know this could be some sort of super-elaborate troll job. At least that was until Bellator announced they signed the Brazilian to their promotion this morning. He began his MMA career on October 1st 2011 in which he finished Maicon Gregor with a flying knee in the first round. In fact, the dude has six flying knee KO wins.

Let's have a look at one of Julio Cesar Neves recent fights and props to Bellator on the huge signing.

The UFCs scouting system is fucking retarded. Instead of filling your roster up with half ass TUF noobs and disposable fighters of all sorts, they should be scouting real talent globally. Why would they not have picked this kid up? Just one of many.

Youre exactly what is wrong with fight "fans" in general. Every fucking body needs to start somewhere. This is the case in all major sports. Minors, get drafted etc.

The bottom line is, he has (at a very young age) faced 19 other human beings, and came out victorious. Regardless of their records, it is 50/50 once they are locked in. Who's to say if he faces tougher competition he wouldnt succeed? He obviously knows how to win. Perhaps you are right, he may be overwhelmed initially, but thats how an athlete develops. If the UFC would match him up with TUF noobs and other various bottom feeders the org. has lurking around, im sure he'd do fine. But now, he has to survive Bellators contract once the UFC decides "wait a minute".

They seem to be more interested in keeping a bunch of lower tier fighters to feed to the upper echelons rather than stack their roster with the worlds best.

That guy is like the godfather of can crushing.
Don't think he will make that huge of an impact.

I have been wrong before but just saying, I'd rather pick someone who fought some damn monster and has some losses, than a unbeaten can crusher.

Your buzzworthy headline is of a fighter who's gone unbeaten in his last 10 fights against fighters with a cumulative W-L record of 33-38. More like MiddleSnoozing. com...DERP ladies...DERP

When a kid gets scouted out of college for football or baseball do you question the record of the teams he played against?

You have to start in some sort of farm league and I would say it's very impressive for a 19 year old regardless of the win/loss record.
