Ive seen many post saying independed fighter, stuff like that what or how does that work? are the fighters who train etc at home and do they get many fights? And is there any well known 'independed fighters?'
from what i've experienced there are two types of independent fighter;
type A: a guy who doesn't train.
type B: a guy who trains at many gyms and doesnt want to tied down to 'fighting out of' a specific gym.
i dislike both because of type a.

Who is matching this boy up??? Seriously after watching this video above its plain to see that boy shouldnt have been in with those guys. Thats bad for the sport and gives the critics of mma some serious ammo :-(
Whenever I hear a fighter is independent, I always assume they have a limited ground game and that the trained guy will blast him out on the floor. Doesn't always happen, sometimes they get blasted on their feet
That's glib, but it really seems to make sense to join a team before competing if you possibly can. Fair play to fighters who can do well without any team backing.
'maybe on reflection that was a genuine grievance and not a gimmick. '
Damian Grabowski i technically classed as an independent fighter as he trains with many camps, remember him saying that at the MMC press conference. So in that respect, it is possible to get to a high level without tying yourself down to a specific team. However, on the whole, independent guys are usually shocking.
It's worse when you see established pro fighters being matched up with him.

Please correct me if I am wrong but were you not the chap on another thread sticking up for Mike Persil fighting? Yet you seem to be having a dig here at Allen.
