Mir’s Broken Mouth Tops Very Short Bellator ‘Hawaii’ List

Frank Mir

Bellator 212: “Macfarlane vs. Letourneau” went down inside Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Dec. 14, 2018. The Paramount Network-televised card saw Michael Chandler improve to 19-4 and regain the Lightweight title in a one-sided victory over his rival Brent Primus, who fell to 8-1 after his first career professional mixed martial arts (MMA) loss.

Medical suspensions for Bellator 212 (courtesy Hawaii’s Boxing Commission) are in and it’s a surprisingly short list, which is unsurprisingly topped by Frank Mir. The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight champion tapped out because of strikes after losing his mouthpiece and having his alveolar ridge fractured. Mir has been ordered to sit out for no less than 30 days, as is Kaeo Meyer, who suffered a first round technical knockout loss to Tywan Claxton.

The following night, Bellator 213: “Macfarlane vs. Letourneau” happened in the exact same venue, this time airing exclusively on DAZN (watch it). Ilima-Lei Macfarlane kept her perfect MMA record intact (9-0) in a Flyweight title defense against Valerie Letourneau, who fell to 10-7 in her first Bellator loss. From that card, the local commission ruled that Kona Oliveira will be medically suspended 30 days following his third round technical knockout, while Kala Hose is suspended 60 days after his first round loss to Marcus Gamble.

At this point I’d usually say “the complete list of injuries and suspensions is below,” but that’s it. Indeed, no other fighters were flagged or given any medical suspensions — not even a mandatory minimum seven days. That’s Hawaii for you, I suppose.

Greg Hardy Plus Rachel Ostovich Equals a Very Interesting UFC Card

Greg Hardy likes to beat his women. Rachel Ostovich was beaten up by her man. Both are UFC fighters, and guess what? It appears both are going to be on the UFC on ESPN+1 card.

If you’ll recall, Hardy’s appearance on the Tuesday Night Contender Series drew a lot of ire from fans because, well, Hardy has a bit of moral baggage he carries around with him. You know, the whole domestic violence thing.

Ostovich, meanwhile, just had her orbital bone broken courtesy of her husband, but is overcoming that domestic violence trauma to be able to face Paige VanZant.

And the UFC has put both an abuser and a victim on the same card.

Some argue that this is kind of tone deaf on the UFC’s part.

Sure, maybe it is. But it’s not like Ostovich is going to be in danger of Hardy attacker her, is she?

What do you think? Is this much ado over nothing? Or definite weak sauce by the UFC?

Khabib Nurmagomedov Is In Some Very Hot Water… With His Dad

Lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov beat the stuffing out of Conor McGregor at UFC 229 on Saturday night, and after his win, jumped the cage and fought in the audience.

Mayhem ensued.

Understandably, the Dagestani is facing some serious repercussions. It’s unclear what the UFC might do to him, but the Nevada State Athletic Commission is certainly going to drop the hammer. That could take the form of fines and suspension, it could take the form of a public lashing (okay, not really)… who knows at this point.

But perhaps the greatest consequence of his ill-advised actions is waiting for him when he gets home.

Khabib’s dad is totally going to kick his ass.

This was alluded to in the post-fight presser, but apparently Pops Nurmagomedov has spoken to the local Dagestani press – and he’s not happy with his son.

As per BloodyElbow:

Speaking to Russian media, Abdulmanap revealed that he plans to punish his son for his role in the brawl.

“I will impose a punishment tougher than the UFC’s. I warned him. For me, discipline comes first. You do whatever you want in the Octagon, [but] outside — this is the border of civilians, where there are children, women, strangers.”

”Financial issues have not been resolved,” Abdulmanap told tass.ru. “He does not know what is going on. He was supposed to fly out of America on the 9th. I do not know what date, at what time [he will return from the United States to Dagestan now].”

If we see Khabib with a pair of black eyes and a distinct limp when he walks, we’ll know his dad don’t play.
