I went to a local amateur MMA show here in New York City (as I tend to do) last night and ran into a trio of well-accomplished fighters you might have heard of: Bellator champ Marcos Galvao, UFC fighter Ryan LaFlare, and TUF winner Eddie “Truck” Gordon.
If you’ll recall, Galvao defeated Joe Warren via kneebar at a Bellator event on Friday, thereby making him the organization’s bantamweight champ.
LaFlare, meanwhile, just headlined a UFC Fight Night in Brazil, where he lost a decision to Demian Maia. (When I spoke to him, LaFlare said he was fine – not really injured except for a ouchie hand.)
Truck lost to Josh Samman back in December, but he was all smiles at this event.
