Photo of the Day: Jon Jones Helps Badr Hari Celebrate

Jones

This weekend's LEGEND 2: Invasion was a great example of a promotion that shows a lot of promise but still needs to work out the kinks in their production. Crazy T-100 NFL rappers with cheerleaders is cool and all, but having such things happen in between what felt like every fight tends to make everything drag on a bit too much. That's just me, though, maybe that is what Russian fans are really into, my finger isn't on the pulse of the Russian people.

Anyway, Jon Jones was paid a lot of money to fly out to LEGEND 2: Invasion, put on a seminar at the owner's gym and then basically hang out for a week. This resulted in Jon Jones photobombs of all kinds including this one of Jon Jones awkwardly dancing to help Badr Hari celebrate his victory with the Mike's Gym crew post-fight. If I were a young, inebriated UFC Light Heavyweight Champion I'd probably be doing the same thing.

LEGEND 2: Invasion Live Results

legend

Jesus christ this show. I don't even know what to say about LEGEND at this point. If you've been watching this, you know what I'm saying, as they've apparently spent over $3 million in making this show happen, yet they are publicly sharing links to Firstrow.eu to watch the event. This is the conundrum of LEGEND, which makes this whole thing just fascinating to watch. This show features a one-night tournament as well as Badr Hari because why not?

Programming Note: Peter Graham Fights Cheick Kongo Tomorrow Night in Bellator

Graham

If you would have told me in 2006 that Peter Graham would be fighting in MMA regularly and that he'd not only do okay, but do pretty well, I'd probably not believe you. Not because Peter Graham isn't an awesome fighter, but because I just couldn't imagine the man behind the Rolling Thunder navigating the waters of wrestling and jiu-jitsu. Peter has always been known as an exciting, no-nonsense fighter who isn't afraid to pull out all of the stops.

Well, here we are in 2013 and the 38 year old Graham is making a serious go at Heavyweight MMA as he'll fight his second fight under the Bellator banner this Friday night against none other than Cheick Kongo. Kongo is himself known for being an exciting striker with a Kickboxing past, but then again, he doesn't have a KO win over Badr Hari with a Rolling Thunder, now does he? Graham's hard work and dedication to MMA have shown in his recent MMA outings, with him picking up a decision victory over Eric Prindle in his Bellator debut. He also isn't at all deterred from Kongo's size or reputation.

"I know who Cheick Kongo is but I haven't followed his career. He's been a great athlete for a long time. He's got a bit of kickboxing and wrestling skill. It'll be a good fight and I'm ready to go. I hope he doesn't underestimate me. I know he's been famous and had a big name for a while and, when it comes to MMA, I'm somewhat of a newcomer. I've come from the worst record to one of the best heavyweight win streaks there's been. I went from going 1-6 to 9 wins a row with 8 of them being KO's over some really good fighters. I want to get to the top and I'm not there yet, but I'm relentless. He needs to bring his A-game, which I'm sure he will. He's got that inner strength to keep going but I have it more than ever and I've worked harder than ever to make every performance better than the last."

Now if only we could see a Rolling Thunder in the Bellator cage, I'd be a happy, happy man.
