Bellator welterweights, Myles Jury and more: Welcome to the Friday talkback thread (Cagewriter)


Welcome to your weekend talkback thread, where you are welcome to hang out, enjoy the atmosphere and discuss the weekend's fights.

On "The Ultimate Fighter," Al Iaquinta will try to break the Team Faber losing streak against Myles Jury. According to Dana White, this fight is even on the board in a Las Vegas sportsbook. "FYI, TUF Live on FX 2 morrow nite Al iaquantia +200 Myles Jury -250 you can bet it on line or at the The Las Vegas Hilton!!" White tweeted. TUF airs on FX at 10 p.m. ET.

Bellator's welterweight tourney will kick off on MTV2. Karl Amoussou and Chris Lozano had to be separated during Thursday's weigh-in. Raul Amaya will face UFC vet Ben Saunders, David Rickels will take on Jordan Smith, and Bryan Baker will fight Carlos Pereira.
