It’s the special return of Carson Commentary this week, as HOF host Bob Carson takes on some of the top issues – and top contenders – in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
As you may know, Nick Diaz recently no-showed the so-called “best grappling match ever” against Braulio Estima – but what does the now re-christened “biggest disappointment ever” mean for the historical legacy of the elder Diaz brother? Why is it that Nate can meet his promotional obligations (including showing up to compete) but Nick is unable to?
What about the most recent Bellator event? Would Carmelo Marrero have been able to compete with more complete fighter Seth Petruzelli who was scratched from the card at the last minute? Did fate save Marrero from an almost certain loss, even against a version of “The Silverback” with audible lung rattling symptoms? Carson breaks down the non-evolution of many wrestling-based fighters and their potential savior – pure grappler Ben Askren!
