  6. Sucks that Chemelli lost. Two illegal knees and two points off for intentional fouls. Chemelli continues in front of his home crowd when he may have escaped with a DQ win or a no contest.

    The doctor should not have allowed that fight to go on… Chemelli was wobbling around in the corner while he was examining him and it seemed the only thing keeping him up was the cage. Gotta give it up to Chemelli for his show of heart wanting to continue but his health was put in jeopardy by that doctor.

    @Loyd Cummings

    I am flattered that you are trying to impersonate me. But I feel that you are trying to mock me. Thats fine. But you sir, are actually correct.

    Sheldon Westcott could beat Tim C and Lopez in 1 night. This used to happen all the time during the MMA tournament formats. Tho I do think he would win by submission. You are also correct that Complete MMA is the best MMA gym in North America and you are also correct that Cam Yallits is the best MMA trainer in the world.

    You are also correct in saying Sheldon will be the UFC Champ at WW and MW.

    Im glad a have a fan! Impresssion is the sincerest form of flattery!

    No matter. You will all soon……

    Hey Lloyd

    I saw Sheldon at the fights this weekend. He looked good, cornered a winner, and was in good spirits. I’m looking forward to his next fight and predict he’s going to have his best performance.

    I wanted to go over and say ‘hi’ for you but didn’t get the chance.

    Also I’m not 100% sure but he might not be a big fan of mine so he might tell me to go f^ck myself.

    Cheers Lloyd keep flying the flag man I got your back.

  15. Chemilli is a good regional fighter who unfortunatlly does not have the talent and ability to go beyond the limits of the smaller shows such as kotc, unified,etc. If his expectations were different he then did the right thing in announcing his retirement.
