Bellator Fighting Championship, broadcast on ESPN Deportes every Saturday evening and also available from their website http://www.bellator.com/ delivered their most exciting and talent-ridden card yet—we saw the favorite Eddie Alvarez to rise to the occasion with his amazing wrestling to control the fight and end it in Round 3 with a rear-naked choke while Jorge Masvidal got choked out by a reverted triangle choke (first time I have ever seen that kind of finish in MMA fight).

So if you haven't seen Bellator fighting yet—I strongly recommend to visit bellator.com coming Wednesday to check out all 8 finishes.

That said, what I really wanted to talk about is the Heavyweight fighter Dave Herman whose nickname happens to be "Pee Wee". But with 14-1 record—all victories coming via vicious stoppages—he is no joke—see the video in the next page from Bellator V - to see what one vicious knee from that guy can do.

But what is most mind-boggling about Dave Herman is that he just started training in MMA gym this year (after his loss to Mu Bae Choi)—all his previous 13 KO/TKO wins have come from pure talent and wrestling background, FiveOuncesOfPain has an extensive interview with him on this topic: http://fiveouncesofpain.com/2009/04/30/dave-pee-wee-herman-nobody-ever-showed-me-how/

So that being said—I did see that Dave Herman has learned from his loss, still needs more training on cardio and boxing defense, but once he puts it all together—heavyweights you better watch out for "Pee Wee"—like the saying goes: "Name does not make the man, The Man makes a name for himself"

Hope you liked, page 2 will contain videos from Bellator V, and page 3 will contain highlights from Dave Herman's previous fights, including the destruction of the beast they call Ron Waterman ;)
