Yeah, Mauro is a freaking beast. His problem is his age, maybe they dontd wanna invest time and money on someone who's 35.

That's a shame, though, since UFC HW division stiknk badly.

So you're sayin my running joke of "the only good Italian fighter is Georio Petrosyan, and he's from Armenia" is no longer funny?

@Zulizani: Yeah, we got plenty of good fighter here. Still a funny joke, though! :)

Roberto Allegretti (6-0) steps in on two-week notice as he face former UFC and Cage Warriors' veteran Nicolas Dalby (14-3-1)  tomorrow at Cage Warriors 96.

Roberto is a huge underdog here since he was (almost) retired and Dalby, instead, is a proved veteran of the European scene.

The Danish fighters said on his social media the he's going to eat Italian again. Too bad he had an indigestion the last time! :)

Tidbit – Allegretti is the coach of 2x CW vet Orlando D'Ambrosio.

As expected, Dalby won, but hey! Roberto went through a full 5-minute round! :)

Let's focus on the future, now. Next in line is Valeriu Mircea:

Mircea (21-5-1) is going to face former UFC and Cage veteteran Anton Kuivanen (26-10) at Cage 44 on 8th September.

Valerio is a freaking beast, is relentless! He's going to have his 28 bout in just 3 years of pro career (in 2016 he fought 12 times!!!). It'll be the fifth match in 2018.

Valeriu Mircea improved his record to 22-5-1 as he TKO'd former UFC fighter Anton Kuivanen in the 2nd round of Cage 44's main event.

I predict big things coming in Valeriu's future.

First Italian woman to sign with UFC Mara Romero Borella got suspended until 2044 by NADO.

Still unclear if that will harm her MMA career.
