Tate blasts Bellator on Twitter

source: mmamania.com
 

In late August, Bellator made a big deal about the return of its women's champion, Zoila Gurgel.

Turns out it may not be that big of a deal after all. That's because "The Warrior Princess" has been relegated to the un-televised portion of the Bellator 78 fight card, which goes down this Friday night (Oct. 26, 2012) from Wright State's Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio.

And that makes former Strikeforce Women's champion Miesha Tate mad:

"I cannot believe [Bellator] would allow [its] champion to be placed on the UN televised undercard in her hometown. A champion is a champion regardless if she is fighting up a weight, u use her image to promote the posters & then put her on the undercard?! Blows my mind. This is the 2nd time too you have done this I tell you what I would rather never fight MMA again then fight for u under @BellatorMMA banner.... The amount of disrespect you have given @ZoilaGurgel is disgusting."

As an organization you have always got to put your champions on display.. They are the cream of the crop in your organization and you want people to believe they are the best champions in any organization. The way to do that is by always having them on the main card. To do anything else is poor business.

Their shows are small comparatively speaking. I dont care how small their shows are, I like to watch good fights - it's an added bonus if they're free. I caught BFC 76 a week late, but it was better than 90% of the shit fights Ive seen lately. On topic, ZF shit talked her org. It's no wonder she's on the undercard. If she was in the UFC and did that, Dana would have erased her from the UFC lol.

Zoila's hometown isn't in Ohio, she's from the Central Valley/Fresno. I know she's a Gurgel, but still.

lol @ all the people who talk shit about how the UFC treats its fighters and then praise organizations like Bellator   The way Bellator has handled the entire Zolia situation has been nothing short of pitiful.  They really showed their true colors with this.
