Fair to say that it's exceeded most people's expectations? I didn't think they'd be able to do a title fight or tourney final almost every week, but they did and the season finale is legitimately stacked by any measure for a TV card.

For some odd reason they have tournaments ending before the previous tournament winner has gotten his shot at the title. Doesn't make sense since the champion should be ready to defend his title as soon as a tournament is over. They are getting backed up title defenses in some of the weight divisions. But whatever, keep on setting up the tournaments and we'll eventually see who the real champ is.

I thought that Zack Houston who got hit in the nuts harder than hell...had some serious balls! Compare that to Spiritwolf's fight ender last week... lol. Props for him getting back up after about a minute and finishing his fight! Phone Post

My guess is they want the tourney winner to heal up and fight the champ at 100%? I'm pretty surprised how they get the guys through the tournament pretty quick!

I am stoked for Brett Cooper vs Doug Marshall next week!

Cooper was in a war his last fight and it'll be less than a month since for his final. Should be great :) Phone Post

Bellator has always been quality, the tournament format is superior for all sports

Now they have much more talent than in the past and can run more tournaments to keep there champs busy, BW and HW will be done this summer so that should clear up there last division issue

Great format and the production is looking more professional.
I really wish it was working guys up to the ufc though rather than being directly competitive with them.
Hate seeing guys so far ahead of their competition with no where to go to test their skills at the next level. Phone Post

Was there last night.

Much bigger crowd than last time they were in town.

Great energy, good fights, fun time.

I also met John Dodson. Very nice guy and talked to anyone who approached him and took pics with everyone.

I was there live at Pechanga in Temecula, CA for Brett Cooper vs Dan Cramer event... and it was awesome!!!

I took a few people to the fight that have never even watched MMA and they were fascinated! The tournament REALLY helps as I let them know who will fight who next etc. Now they can't wait for Brett Cooper to smash Doug Marshall...lol. Phone Post

letsgobois -

I agree. Even though I just started watching Bellator consistently since they started having a show on spike every Thursday, I feel they put on a good show. I would have never known who fighters like Saad Awad or Emmanual Newton where before, but I watched all their tournament fights up to the finale. And I'm excited to see Rickels get destroyed by Chandler. But I do think that Dave and Busters commercial is stupid as fuck.

I can't wait for you to eat crow punk ass
