Since we're out of a major MMA event for the next two weeks and Bellator's PR department intentionally makes it difficult for anyone in the media to get in touch with their fighters, we have to fill in MiddleEasy with exclusive content or fights on smaller promotions that you may mildly be interested in. Later today, LayzieTheSavage is going to spend some time with Dan Hardy, so that essentially takes care of our exclusive content. As far as bouts that will go down in the immediate future, get ready for Tank Abbott vs. Scott Ferrozzo II going down October 30th in Dayton, Ohio at the Dixie Cowgirls Night Club.
The venue is an old strip club and the 'dance stage' will be converted to a cage. The fight will use UFC 1 rules which essentially means the two fighters can headstomp, eye gauge, knee to the back of the spine -- pretty much all of those rules that were placed to prevent a fighter from being fatally injured in front of a live audience have been removed. According to Joe Show Radio, the fight will only be stopped if one fighter is about to die.
The venue has been selected, money is in escrow and the entire event will apparently be streamed live. Basically what we're trying to say is the match is the closest thing the world has to Supremacy MMA, which is available worldwide right now -- so pick it up. [Source]
