It's time for Bellator #198 .....

It's 13 days out but ... Bellator # 198 isn't till Saturday April 28th at the Allstate Arena , Rosemont, Illinois.  But on a cold snowy day like today ,I figured its a good time to start getting "pumped" about it .

Since the the main event is the Heavyweight World Grand Prix  match of Fedor Emelianenko vs Frank Mir , it seemed like a good idea to revisit Fedor's last match in the Chicago area.  That match was Fedor Emelianenko vs Dan Henderson at StrikeForce's  July 2011 matches at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates.

Strikeforce July 30th 2011         Sears Center  Hoffman Estates , Illinois

Was not the best night for Fedor since he lost by TKO\RSC in the first round .....

Since July 2011 , Fedor has had 2 wins in 2011, one win in each of the years of 2012-2015 -2016 . On 6/24/2017 he lost to Matthew Mitrione at Bellator # 180 by a KO at 1:14 of the first round.

That event's "photog pit" was one of the worst I have ever seen ...Completely out of control ...

It's time for GLORY....Glory #50 slideshow of favorites and a link to the complete photo gallery posting

On Friday , February 16th, I had the honor to photograph the Glory 50 Kickboxing Championships at the UIC Pavillion in Chicago , Illinois.  For me and any Chi-Town Kickboxing fan the "fight of the night" was presented by one of the area's finest Kick boxing Champions  Richard Abraham and he didn't let his fans down ...It's always a pleasure watching Richard do his thing.

Hugh shout-out to Matthew Paul for his getting the "W"  over fellow Chi-town Robert Morrow , should be noted their match was the only Pro-Fight on the under card. Due to gig's I had earlier in the day, I arrived ringside as their match had just started.  Luckily I was able to snag a few shots of the match before Matt's  in the 1: 30 in Round 2 TKO.  Also a shout out to My Man ,Daniel Morales who may have lost the split decision  29-28 _ 29-28 _ 29-28  _29-28 _  30-27 ...But ALWAYS does a great job of representing Chi-town's fight scene.

Below the cover image of the UIC Pavilion panorama ,  there's a slideshow of a few favorite pic's of the night..............PLEASE NOTE THE SLIDE SHOW IS JUST A FEW OF MY FAVORITE PICKS, THE COMPLETE PHOTO GALLERY POSTING OF ALL IMAGES CAPTURED AT GLORY #50 IS RIGHT BELOW THE SLIDESHOW.
