Triad Combat
Triller Fight Club’s Triad Combat came and went and while I write this, whether or not it was a success or failure remains to be seen. The rule set created is meant to even the playing field between MMA fighters and boxers and I don’t know if it did that.
Coincidentally, we had Sean Wheelock on Coast-2-Coast Combat Hour just before Triller announced Triad Combat. If I had known ahead of time I could ask him how he came up with this rule set. If you’re unfamiliar with the rules, check out his explanation here:

We didn’t know what to expect so the week of, Matt Hawkins and I went over the card which seemed to add a team concept the week of the event. When it was over, I have to say I was pleased with the pacing and the fights. But, I found out some things afterwards that said fighters were not allowed to check the triangle shaped ring. I know that’s something fighters like to do to prepare mentally for where they are going to compete so that not being permitted should probably change.
Sorry for not issuing a newsletter last week but I lost a friend. If you follow me on Medium I wrote it about it, but if you don’t you can read the post below:

Back to Business
Bellator’s final card is this Friday and with Kyoji Horiguchi returning it almost feels like it’s a sign of us getting back to normal if you know what happened with him just before COVID-19 hit. If you don’t, I wrote about it over at MMA along with the fight card info:
