Seven years ago, a heavyweight by the name of Daniel Cormier made his professional fighting debut on a Strikeforce Challengers event in Bixby, Oklahoma. Roma Lorenzo Pellegrini Jersey .Early in the broadcast, commentators relayed a story about Cormiers manager, Bob Cook, literally laughing at his fighters attempts to throw kicks in the gym -- his skills were that raw.What Cormier had going for him, however, was an Olympic-caliber wrestling background. Within three years of that debut, Cormier had won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament. Today, hes a UFC champion and one of the most recognizable stars in a sport that is constantly in search of them.And it all started with then-Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker signing a heavyweight with no experience.When we signed him, Daniel really had no skill in mixed martial arts other than wrestling, Coker chuckled. But he turned into a phenomenal fighter. When you look at the disciplines of this sport, if you have a good wrestling background, youre usually at a pretty decent advantage.Coker, now the president of Bellator MMA, is quietly applying the same strategy he used to find Cormier to his current promotion.Bellator has made a big splash with several free-agent signings in recent years, which include established names like Chael Sonnen, Rory MacDonald, Benson Henderson and Phil Davis. But in addition, the company has also invested in five standout amateur wrestlers who have never professionally competed in MMA.We call them the Fab Five, Coker said.Their names are Aaron Pico, Ed Ruth, Tyrel Fortune, Jarod Trice and Joey Davis. The first four attempted to qualify for the 2016 U.S. Olympic wrestling team, each falling just short at trials. Davis, an undefeated four-time NCAA Division II national wrestling champion, made his MMA debut for Bellator in August. He won by unanimous decision.Ruth, 26, is scheduled to make his debut on Friday at Bellator 163 in Uncasville, Connecticut. Hes a former three-time NCAA Division I champion at Penn State and trains out of MMA veteran Josh Koschecks gym in Fresno, California. Hes also represented by Zinkin Entertainment -- the same management group of Cormier.Whether or not Ruth, a middleweight, comes close to duplicating Cormiers success no one knows. But as he was with Cormier, Coker is in on the ground floor of his career. And in the business of MMA promotion, its always nice to hold a potential lotto ticket.I feel like the sky is the limit in this sport, Ruth said. You look at Conor McGregor, and Im not gonna lie, I love that guy. He was confident, knew how to talk and now hes making lots of money. I feel like every fighter comes into this sport thinking they can make astronomical amounts of money, and I feel the same. I feel my chances are great, given that Ive already done the hard work Im going to put in.Scott has a good relationship with my management team, and I really couldnt go wrong with Bellator. They are putting me in a position where I can take off.Fortune, a heavyweight and close friend of Ruths, also makes his debut at Bellator 163. His involvement in MMA began when he flew to South Florida to help former UFC champion Rashad Evans prepare for a fight. Bellator moved quick in signing Fortune, as he agreed to a deal with the promotion within a few weeks of Ruth introducing him to some of its executives.Even though Fortune has no record, he has already been courted by fight camps and promotions. He now trains out of Arizona but says his confidence grew during his time with the Blackzilians in Florida.Guys like [striking coach] Henri Hooft pulled me aside and said, Listen, I really think you have endless potential to be a champion in this sport if thats what you want, Fortune said. Hearing it from guys like that -- [UFC light heavyweight] Anthony Johnson, Rashad, [grappling coach] Neil Melanson -- I fell in love with it right away.One of the first things Rashad did was say, OK, wait, we have to make sure you have a chin, first. There are some people who, for whatever genetic reason, cant take a punch. So, he hit me in the face, kind of by surprise, and I took it OK. Thats when he said, OK, you got a future in this sport!Neither Ruth nor Fortune is scheduled to appear on the televised main card this weekend, which is by Bellator design. Coker said he wanted to book both to a real fight but spare them the additional pressure of fighting on live television. Both fighters understood the decision and said its in line with the relationship theyve had with Bellator to this point.When Ed was telling me about signing with Bellator and what they had to offer, he said, Theyre not throwing us to the wolves, Fortune said. Its very personal. Theyre not looking at us as an assembly line of athletes coming through the organization. I have a relationship with this promotion.Since Coker took over as Bellators president in 2014, the promotion has faced its share of criticism for circus fights, mostly those involving retired greats who are past their prime or a heavyweight bout between the late Kimbo Slice and Dhafir Dada 5000 Harris in February.But two years in, Cokers imprint on Bellators roster is finally taking shape and a focus on amateur wrestlers is proving to be a major piece of it. Time will tell if it produces another Cormier.I always feel the roster has to be built from the ground up and the top down, Coker said. Ten years ago with Strikeforce, there were more free agents floating around. We signed Fedor Emelianenko, [Antonio] Bigfoot Silva, Fabricio Werdum -- now free agents are few and far between, but were signing our share of them, as youve seen.We also have to build from the ground up, and thats how we built Strikeforce, and I think were doing that here with the wrestling group weve brought in. Authentic A.S. Roma Jerseys . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. Roma Edin Dzeko Jersey . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. http://www.cheapasromajersey.com/?tag=ro...-perotti-jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn is recovering from surgery to repair an abdominal muscle injury.Stars general manager Jim Nill said Friday that the full recovery time is six weeks, and that the surgery performed Thursday went as planned. It wasnt clear when or how Benn got injured.That recovery time frame puts Benn on schedule to be ready for the 2016-17 NHL season, but creates uncertainty about his availability to partticipate for Team Canada in the World Cup of Hockey that begins in mid-September. Roma Alessandro Florenzi Jersey. . Nill said Benns availability for that will be determined after the left wings rehabilitation process.Benn scored a career-high 89 points (41 goals, 48 assists) for the Western Conference champion Stars last season.
