    We Got Next | A Fired Up Danny Sabatello & Victorious Vince Morales

    We Got Next | A Fired Up Danny Sabatello & Victorious Vince Morales

    With the Bellator bantamweight grand prix recently announced for 2022, one fighter in particular feels like he deserved his opportunity to vie for the world title and $1 million.
    This week on We Got Next, Bellator 135-pounder Danny Sabatello (3:08) reacts to being left off of the bracket, discusses why he believes James Gallagher is the most egregious name in the eight-man slate, not being impressed with Sergio Pettis’ last two fights or his recent spinning back fist KO of Kyoji Horiguchi at Bellator 272 this past Friday, how Bellator’s bantamweights match up with the UFC’s, being ready to be an alternate if called upon, and wanting to welcome Gervonta Davis to MMA.
    Vince Morales (28:07) recaps his KO win over Louis Smolka this past Saturday at UFC Vegas 44, talks what being the first to knock Smolka out means to him, not getting a bonus, what has changed since his loss to Chris Gutierrez and why he was thankful for that experience, 2021 being his breakout year for a number of reasons, his callout of Nathaniel Wood, and his goals for 2022.

    Fighter vs. Writer: Beneil Dariush ‘Frustrated’ He Was Somehow Forgotten In Lightweight Title Picture

    Lightweight contender Beneil Dariush joins the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer as he prepares for his return to action in February for a showdown with Islam Makhachev.
    With seven wins in a row, Dariush climbed near the top of the rankings at 155 pounds but after he took time off to welcome his first child into the world, he’s grown somewhat frustrated after being nearly forgotten when it came to the title picture in the lightweight division.
    Dariush will address the fight with Makhachev as well as Justin Gaethje getting the next title shot as well as his take on the upcoming showdown at UFC 269 between Charles Oliveira and Dustin Poirier. All this and much more on the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer.

    On To the Next One | Matches To Make After UFC Vegas 44

    On To the Next One | Matches To Make After UFC Vegas 44

    The timeless Jose Aldo has made a compelling case to fight for the bantamweight title once again following his big win over Rob Font in the main event of UFC Vegas 44. While a title shot in his next fight may be unlikely, a title eliminator fight with T.J. Dillashaw seems to be the next logical step in the eyes of many. What happens if Dillashaw chooses to decline that fight in hopes to get a title shot against the winner of the probable championship rematch between Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan?
    That topic is discussed, along with what could next for Font after a tremendous effort in defeat, Rafael Fiziev, Jamahal Hill, Clay Guida, Chris Curtis, Alex Morono, and more following Saturday's event at the UFC APEX with MMA Fighting's Mike Heck and Alexander K. Lee.
