David Bielkheden Highlight Video:


  1. he looks pretty tough,maybe he will beat diegos ass and he will move down to 155 where he is better off.

  2. Patrick89 says:

    Strongass ground and pound, but he has submissions also. He's 12-5 and he has never been stopped in a fight, this should be pretty good.

  3. hell yeah this fight is good and fuck diego always fights haed fucking ppl and i hope he gets a win

  4. don't know anything about this guy…if he wins Diego will drop to 155 and if he loses then i think its a impressive win for Diego from what i've researched about Bielkheden

  5. david who?????? diego better win this fight. now that ali somona is out of the picture, diego can now deal with his real demons.

  6. This guy looks tough. Thanks for the vid because I didn't know who this guy was. He looks agressive like Diego and probably stronger so I'm looking foward to this one already.

  7. He does look strong and aggressive, but the level of competition he's facing also plays a factor in that. I don't think he'd look as tough while fighting Fitch, koscheck, or Parisyan. I don't think this will be a GREAT fight. I think Diego is going to walk away with this fight.

  8. dane drebin says:

    a large healthy diego wins this fight in round one
