Nothing like a good tag team match to get Impact Wrestling Bound For Glory Preview excited, and this could develop into a couple of different matches in one.

Since ending the North’s year plus winning streak at Slammiversary, The Motor City Machine Guns have ignited an intense rivalry not only with the former champions, but with fellow newcomers, The Good Brothers.

To add to the MCMG’s headache, Ace Austin and Madman Fulton have also been chasing after them, though with less success than the other teams.

The four teams will meet in what looks to be an epic clash at Bound For Glory for the Impact Tag Team Championship.

As with most matches on the card, this has a little of everything with power, speed, athleticism, and technique.

As any match involving any of the eight participants have shown, this is going to be a brawl.

Not to mention it’s going to have plenty of out of control moments as each team will look to take home the gold while dishing out their fair share of punishment.

The participants

The breakdown for this match seems to favor the Good Brothers facing the Motor City Machine Guns more than anything.

Especially after Karl Anderson his Alex Shelly with a cutter on Impact Wrestling, and then followed that with he and Doc Gallows hitting the Magic Killer on Chris Sabin to close out the broadcast.

While the North and Austin and Fulton can’t be ignored, the latter duo are still working to establish themselves in the Impact tag division.

Impact Wrestling Bound For Glory Preview has noticed that while Austin and Fulton have had some success, they seem to be more on the receiving end of losses.

To be fair, they’ve been so close and tend to only lose by inches that their winning this would instantly propel them to the top and make them a force.

It’d be the typical underdog fighting and scraping to reach the pinnacle story, but it doesn’t feel right for them to win the Impact tag titles at this time.

Though it would be a fitting and surprising end is Austin manages to sneak in a pin while Fulton holds any potential interferers off.

The same goes for the North. In our opinion, Ethan Page and Josh Alexander were awesome champions and remain one of the best tag teams in the world, but it feels too soon for them to win back their titles.

Back to the top two choices

This brings us full circle to the MCMG and Good Brothers.

We’d give Anderson and Gallows the edge in a standard match simply because Gallows could make the difference with his size and strength.

But in this case, we expect him and Fulton to bear the brunt of the exchanges from each other and the rest of the field, which will leave Anderson alone and vulnerable to Shelley and Sabin’s double teams.

In the end, if Austin doesn’t sneak in and steal the win, we expect the MCMG to prevail with a pin on Anderson.

How do you think it’ll play out? Let us know in the comments below.

Paul Daley vs. Jason Jackson set for Bellator 260 co-main event – MMA Fighting

Published

on

Paul Daley isn’t done with the sport of mixed martial arts just yet.

Promotional officials announced on Wednesday that Daley will face Jason Jackson in the co-main event of Bellator 260 at a catchweight at 175 pounds. The fight card takes place June 11 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. and will air on Showtime.

“Semtex” will make the walk less than two months after his thrilling Fight of the Year contender against Sabah Homasi at Bellator 257, where Daley earned a second-round finish. After dropping three of four to Michael Page, Jon Fitch and Rory MacDonald, the 62-fight veteran has won three straight, which includes a decision win over Erick Silva and a second-round TKO of Saad Awad.

Jackson has won his last four fights after dropping a controversial split decision to Ed Ruth in the start of his current run with Bellator. “The Ass-Kicking Machine” bounced back with wins over Klichi Kunimoto, Jordan Mein, Benson Henderson and Neiman Gracie to land him at No. 3 in the current promotional rankings at 170 pounds.

Bellator 260 will be headlined by a welterweight title fight between Douglas Lima and Yaroslav Amosov.

Is the LW division in Bellator the only

Published

on

I didn’t say anyone from this list can beat all 10 ranked guys

If they make 10 fights head to head and choose the matches carefully, I can see the unranked fighters beating them 10-0. For example the two weakest fighters from my list against Moret or Queally (I think they can beat them), then put Khabilov against Piccolotti, there you go another win :D Usman can beat Jury, Mamedov can beat Outlaw etc etc

Shabliy will prove it against the ranked Alfie :D

If they did the opposite and choose the good matchups for the ranked guys against the unranked, I really can’t see it going 10-0 for them. The unranked guys are better, imo.
