Miami Hustle: That Man From Cuba

Genghis Con continues his campaign to make you like Mondays, as the second episode of his web-doc Miami Hustle dropped right on schedule. This episode follows decorated Cuban wrestler Alexis Vila as he prepares for his ninth pro MMA fight at flyweight. The episode starts with the final stages of sweating just before weigh-ins, and ends with his fight with OKC-based Lewis McKenzie at MFA New Generation 4 in February. Vila is an impressive talent, and don’t be surprised if you hear his name pop up when people start talking about the UFC’s plans at 125 pounds.

As with pretty much everything Genghis Con does, this is completely worth the time to sit down and watch. The two camera men managed to catch some funny stuff, not the least of which is Vila’s girlfriend stunningly bad timing to start with the ol’ “I need to lose some weight” attention gambit. Considering that she’s talking to a wrestler — an Olympic wrestler at that — and a pro fighter who’d just weighed in hours before, she’s not going to get much sympathy about how hard it is to shed ten pounds.

Also keep an eye out for Bellator’s Zombifier-in-Chief Hector Lombard, as he comes to watch Vila fight and gift Jorge Masvidal with a big knife, and JZ Cavalcante and Jorge Santiago ditching training to go surfing. Slackers.

You can catch Miami Hustle Monday nights here at 8pm ET, but seeing as how you can barely remember where you left your phone and what pants you’re wearing, we’ll go ahead and remind you next week.

What a pig . . . People who think that since diet drinks have no calories --that it's healthy. It's some of the most toxic crap once can put into their bodies. Boil that bitch down for the lard.

Chromium >> Yup, he's signed up for season 5 at 135. That tourney is going to be packed.

I hate it when girls talk about losing weight. It's like "ok, what do you want me to say?". DANGER ZONE

I thought Alexis Vila signed up for Bellator's next BW tournament. That could keep him out of the UFC for a while if he wins. It's not like I blame him for wanting to make money now, the dude is 40 years old.
