We glanced at this poster and though M’Pumbu’s nick name was “TomTom”. Like he hands out directions. Also, just seeing if you notice anything odd about this…. (PicProps: Bellator.com)
Remember when Bellator inked that deal with MTV2, and it was supposed to make BFC more accessible? Stable time slot, easy to find, no more worries about pre-emption? Yeah. We remember that. It was a Tuesday, we’d finally gotten all the Christmas cards in the mail, and it just felt like this was the best MMA news we could expect in early December. Our beloved Bellator was movin’ on up to the East Side. Fast forward three months, and we’ve cursed at our DVR so much that it’s now started to nervously record old re-runs of ALF and anything related to the Pro Bull Riders circuit in hopes of making amends. If you’re not manually setting, checking, and resetting your recording device of choice, catching a full episode of Bellator is an exercise in futility and frustration. Thanks, MTV2!
That said, Bellator has been making it more than worth your while to tune in the past few weeks, and last night’s light heavyweight tourney in Tunica, Mississippi was a prime example. Fun fact about Mississippi: couples have to be 21 years old to get married there without parental consent. Yes, we were shocked to hear that as well. If you’re young and madly in love in Mississippi, you’re going to have cross the border somewhere to declare your devotion in a legal fashion.
Come on in past the jump and we’ll share even more shocking tales about things you probably wouldn’t believe, if we couldn’t prove it to you with witnesses and video. There may possibly be cake.
