Rama Set to Take on Lopez at Battle for the Border 3

By:

BFTB Rama vs. LopezSmealinho “Prince” Rama (7-1) has agreed to face former KOTC World Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez (33-14) in a Heavyweight contest at Battle for the Border 3 in Cranbrook, BC on April 12.

Rama enters the bout on the strength of a Unanimous Decision victory over highly touted Olympic Wrestler and top ranked prospect Steve Mocco at WSOF Canada: Ford vs. Powell. “Prince” Rama rebounded from his first loss against Anthony Hamilton following an undefeated 6-0 start to his career and has cemented himself as the undisputed¬†#1 Heavyweight in Canada. Already touted as a top ten prospect by some, Rama will look to move one step closer to earning a UFC contract with a victory over Lopez.

Tony Lopez enters the bout having lost 5 of his last 6 contests to the likes of Trevor Prangley, Alexey Oleinik and Nick Rossborough. Lopez however is very tough and durable foe and has only been finished four times in his fourteen losses with most of his opponents needing the full 3-5 rounds to get the win. ¬†Lopez’s most recent win came with a bit of controversy when he submitted Andenilson Clementino by rear naked choke. Lopez held the choke well after the referee attempted to pull him off and delivered a hammer fist to the face as he stood up.

    BOO BOO,

    Have yeah ever seen Rocky 3? when Mr T ” mad dogging ” his wife? and how awesome it was to see him come back an knock the guys ass out?..

    Honestly lol..we talked to Tony about the incident, and he knows he fucked up.
    BUT everyone makes mistakes, AND the cali commission lifted his suspension an forgave em… so why not us as well?..
    and PLUS! man… this guy has never been TKO or KO in over 50 FIGHTS.. thats bad ass, AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE IF RAMA CAN DO IT!..

    Tony is a great fighter and what he did was horrible as you can basically not to anything worse to an unconscious person than hit them again in there defenseless state,

    and no offence but if indeed this guy was maddogging his wife??

    1)why did he not handle it right then as that is far more “manly” and understandable than hitting an unconscious guy after you have had time to think about it and already broke rules by holding the choke far to long

    2) was holding on to the choke far FAR longer and ignoring the ref until the guy was out cold not payment enough?

    again i can see holding the choke a bit longer out of anger for something like that I just think the punch after fight over and guy already out is pretty nasty no matter what the situation and have no idea how a commission could not make a fighter fulfill the full suspension for that

    TRYING TO HURT A GUY INTENTIONALLY AFTER THE BELL IS WAY UNCALLED FOR .

    I DONT GIVE A FUCK WHAT HAPPENED BACK STAGE , YOU TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN THE BELLS !

    ONCE THAT HORN SOUNDS ITS UP TO THE PRO TO BE A PRO AND NOT ACT LIKE A FUCKING SAVAGE !

    THERE IS NO EXCUSE WHATSOEVER TO INTENTIONALLY HURT ANYONE INSIDE THE CAGE AFTER THE FIGHT IS CLEARLY OVER .

    IF THERES A PERSONAL PROBLEM , LEAVE IT OUTSIDE THE CAGE SO THE SPORT CAN CONTINUE TO GO FORWARD INSTEAD OF BACKWARDS LIKE IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO !

    Ya the punch was bad?….but BJ,Babalu,Royce,Paul Harris, some very good fighters have held on to long and in the case of BJ and Royce, didn’t even get in shit over it? Babaul got burnt bad as did Paul H but Its still not right, but no one cuts BJ for holding on to Pulver(after he was tapping and out) Plus the ref was ‘yanking’ on him the hole time to let go. As far as the fight goes I like the match up, and hope Rama can stop him, but its a tough fight.

    I fought Lopez – nicest guy. Whatever he did, it was wrong but he did not do it without reason. Rama will have his hands full.

    Lopez’s dirtbag opponent got exactly what he deserved when he choose to become a sexual predator. It’s even more disgusting listening to cowards defend such a person. Everyone had made it clear why they can only talk on the internet and much too terrified to fight anyone, anywhere, anytime
