Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper, if the ‘Mr. Cooper’ in this scenario is Brett Cooper, involves getting violently knocked out by an uppercut with a kind of scary calmness reserved for surgeons, or kitschy oversized sandwich creators. Brett Cooper’s last loss was fifty Bellator events ago at Bellator 44, to the middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko. Since then, Cooper has been on a tear — knocking out three dudes and physically dominating another three, resulting in ‘Fudoshin’ making it to the Bellator middleweight tournament finals. At Bellator 95, Cooper will take on Doug Marshall in a fight that has a great probability of bringing a rawesomicity overload to the gray mat of Bellator, so Rick Lee took it upon himself to talk to Cooper about his quest for revenge against Shlemenko and Marshall who stands as the last trial before that goal.
