Bellator Fighting Championships 22
Are any bullies planning on watching the Bellator Fighting Championships 22? Details below are below. I don't know any of the fighters on tonight's card, except for Dan Hornbuckle, who I find to be a very talented and highly entertaining fighter to watch, with a track record of finishing. Watched a re-run of his fight with Nabil Khatib of Ottawa which was exciting. I am calling for him to win Bellator's welterweight tournament tonight.

Short version of some of the key fighters since you said you never heard of them:

Stephanie Frausto is the sister of Zoila Frausto. You might recognize Zoila for her Strikeforce fights where she throws striking techniques with the word "flying" in them inadvisable liberally. Also, not that you should care but since it always comes up, anyway, I consider the Frausto sisters to be the best looking ladies in the sport.
Demetrius Richards competes mostly in the circuit around my parts. He recently has a win against big name among NY fighters Gian Valenti, but it was considered kind of flukey as Gian got injured in a fashion that I doubt will ever happen twice. Boy isn't technically brilliant, but he does like to scrap and has a good scramble for a man his size.
