I fucking hate MTV. They make you pay for another channel to watch anything other than Jersey Shore or pregnant teenagers.
I picked Jared Hess to win it from the begining, I'm sticking with that pick, and it's the only one I'm making.
EDIT- I hope Shlemenko wins too so Hess can get that loss back.
This was an awful event. The only fight that wasn't terribly boring was the Shlemenko one. Hess seemed like he was out on his feet almost the entire fight, and I couldn't believe that he didn't get knocked out. I think Baker needs to work on his jits so he can actually finish the anaconda choke next time.
I guess the correct response is to have a greater appreciation for the skill level of the fighters in the UFC, Strikeforce, and Dream, but it's going to be hard for me not to hate Bellator after this shameful display.
