Archie Colgan Loved The Boos, Walks Away With Extra Cash

Paris – Bellator lightweight Archie Colgan made the walk to the cage serenaded by boos, but he took the win anyway over Thibault Gouti at Bellator Paris on Friday night.

“It was dope. It was cooler than had I just gone out there and they just cheered for him and did nothing for me,” Colgan told Cageside Press among other reporters at his post-fight scrum.

“When I walked out there and they said ‘Archie King Colgan’ I hit the stage and the whole arena booed…that sh*t felt so good.”

Colgan (10-0) dominated the fight against a very tough Gouti who missed weight the morning before. It did nothing but get Colgan some extra cash.

“I mean it gave me a couple thousand dollars, that was cool, and besides that…you can look at it as maybe he cut corners in camp or not. Or maybe he was trying to get himself a little bit of an edge by not cutting that little bit that everybody knows is the hardest,” he said.

“But to me when you spend your life dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s and living you life the right way two pounds isn’t going to be enough to beat me.”
