Bellator has a great roster of non mainstream talent. I never understood the hate.

I will watch any bellator main event over any UFC card that features Ronday rousey.

bellator should consider competing head to head against the UFC on Saturday nights that the Ultimate fighting championship decides to show up with a half ass card

Nobody clicks on that shit. Pics of Tate's ass would get 100x more traffic than a Bellator thread. It's our own fault. Phone Post

The UnderGround, Mayor

We cover what people are interested in, not what we are interested in. I am interested in MMA technique, but there is next to none of that there because the UG collectively doesn't care. Same thing with WMMA and JMMA. Invicta finally turned people around to WMMA, opened their eyes, but it has been a long time coming.

There is not a lack of information in the MMA space, there is too much. The average news piece is not put up so that people will somehow therefore become interested in the subject. The average news piece is put up because people find it compelling.

People are not interested in Ronda Rousey's tweets because they are on the UG. Ronda Rousey's tweets are on the UG because people are interested in them.

We do do a large number of pieces simply because we believe in them, regardless of views. Regulation and legislation being a primary one. But I am not in the business of trying to get people to watch IFL or ProElite or Affliction or BoDog or Strikeforce or Bellator because it is fair and the UFC is too big and Dana White swears too much or whatever the reasoning is.

And, as Chris noted, there will be a full Bellator discussion thread. But there will not be for example a thread on Bellator weigh ins, because no one cares.

Disagree, how could you say people are not interested in Bellator on Spike when you don't cover it?

Isn't this a MMA site? You think Invicta will get more viewers than Bellator on Spike? Top 10 fighters fighting for titles on Spike isn't news worthy?

Eddie Alvarez is getting offers from the UFC and "intended" title fight and the guy who finished him is fighting this Thursday

^ this is all sad but true; same with the FO site, i used to spend ages putting Bellator previews together. Three people read them and two of those were accidental clicks; fuckin depressing

that said, i am heartily looking forward to tomorrow's event and the Chandler/Hawn fight especially.

You can't show me data that no one is interested I'm Bellator on spike because you haven't ran one story on them yet this week or last I believe

Eddie and his contract was big news, you got your "hits", I would assume people would be interested in the guy who beat him

To be fair, stickied threads could be buyable by gray names. I'm sure if Spike wanted a Bellator thread stickied, Kirik would do it Phone Post
Wow, I had no idea "stickied" threads were sponsored.

Do I even business?!? NO Phone Post
