Why Isn't Bellator on Spike a Sticky?

Why don't we have weigh-in threads? Why isn't there no interviews of their fighters on the UG news feed? Will there be a discussion thread or threads for each fight?

Why does Invitica which is streamed get more of a presence on the UG than a promotion taking UFC's place on Spike?

Why is this the also the case with WSOF or AXSTV promotions? This forum was built on people trying to "support the sport" - why has it been hijacked to where the Mods only sticky and promote certain promotions?

I really want to know. What benefit is being conferred to have such a bias?

Kirik? Chris?

Please let me know.

Sincerely,


PB Phone Post

Kirik already said no one cares about Bellator and he is not running a charity

the UG is one of Zuffa's outlets to condition the fans toward accepting their propaganda. Bellator needs to throw some cash around in good faith to bribe management into making "uncle bjorn" more popular, that is unless Dana threatens/makes it worth their while to have them blocked behind the scenes.

You cant make people care about things, people care more about what color Ronda's bra is than they do about Bellator.

I don't think people don't care about Bellator. There isn't as much drama and discussion so the threads fall flat. I think a lot of people don't know about it, and the ones who do don't have much to say about it.
A thread about Bjorn being an asshole gets a lot more traction than any thread about Bellator's fights. Phone Post

There has always been a sticky for live results and there will be one tomorrow. UFC live event sticky never goes up until day of either. Phone Post

Shitty that fans are talking about how they dont care about bellator. Plenty of quality fighters over there that at times seem hungrier than a bunch of the point fighters in ufc. Ill bet if fans start generating more interest in bellator they could rise to actually give the ufc a run for their money. And seriously what other promotion is as easy to follow as bellator? Almost everything they put on is free Phone Post

Its Funny that people keep saying no one cares but these threads keep popping up, I guess people do care, the anti Bellator group is just much louder so I guess that's what sticks

The UG better jump on board, the Bellator train will be rolling weekly on Spike, choooooo choooooo

Thanks for the response Chris. I just noticed last Invitica there was like 8 UG news threads the day before/ of and I've never seen anything like that for any other promotion besides the UFC. It's not like the bellator/wsof/mfc etc stories are not out there, it just seems selective what makes the UG news.


This is the top place I have always come for MMA interaction and news... It would just be nice to see the UG support everyone else like they seem to do with the promotions Zuffa holds a stake in. Phone Post

That's all I think we were looking for, instead of dancing around about the number of views, interest and blah blah blah, thanks for the honest answer
