TeamRenzo4Life - Randy Couture did what Dana and The UFC always feared a fighter would do: He got REAL representation who told him straight up how bad the UFC contract he signed was.
Cindy O and MMALOGIC can spin it any way they want, but UFC contracts are fucking horrible. Randy held out and got the respect he deserved and now he's a pariah.
Big surprise.

LOL! No son, Randy has had Sammy Spira in his corner and advising him on his career for years (inc. UFC contracts). You may have seen in in the late '80's flick "The Little Dragons" as Sammy was the little dragon. Sammy begged the UFC for work too... for years, and they weren't interested in working with him either.

Soooo, you were saying...???

As far as any contract, I really don't give a shit what they say once a fighter signs one, and I don't care which promotion it is so how can that be spun, dumbass?

Your opinion carries no weight here, shill.

MMALOGIC - you gotta wonder what this means for bellators budget. Viacom is gonna divest heavily out of mma at this point... but to what extent?

will they keep it around in a late night timeslot? the only timeslot bellator would work on spike would be on thursday nights at 11pm to 1am - but even that's a stretch.

I expect Rampage to start complaining any day now. Randy Couture must be kicking himself right about now.

STFU you stupid, ignorant jackass. This is not some show they picked up and would cancel after 2 episodes.

They BOUGHT Bellator for 10's of millions and are going to do everything they can to make it successful. This might make them put MORE money into advertising.

This forum is boring and sickening because of fucktards like you. You are like a gaggle of jerk-offs who show up at a college party, start lighting your farts and then all the girls leave.............


HP, you need to get laid. That is all.

I used to watch Strikeforce and WEC but just can't get into Bellator. I don't really love the tournament idea and can't picture them as real competition for UFC.

They're comparable to TNA Wrestling because they'll do we'll enough to survive (bring owned by Viacom helps) but will never be a top dog. Phone Post 3.0

Is 450K bad for a largely unknown promotion ?

I thought they'd be pretty happy with that.

What numbers should they have been doing?

Big surprise.

Interestingly enough, Bellator contracts are based on the UFC model and feature most of the same clauses.
By based on, don't you mean photocopied? Phone Post 3.0

Lol, are referring to when bjorn asked ken pavia explicitly in an email for a UFC contract to copy and ken agreed and provided it?(allegedly) ;)

I seem to remember some sort of fallout after that came to light. Wasn't someone blacklisted from new zuffa signings for life? Hmm who was that...

Bellator only having 2 events for the summer series instead of the usual 3.

You're a piece of work.

Unfortunately 2 SS shows was their plan before the event did poor in the ratings. If you listen to the MMA Report with Jason Floyd, it was reported there. And why do you think they announced DURING THE EVENT that the BW tourney would start at the beginning of the fall season?

The reality is, with the 4-man LHW and HW tourneys concluding the next SS event, plus their dependence on the seasonal concept, there wasn't much to show on a 3rd event as a result. This was the first time they've had only 2 SS events, which coincides with the first time they had 4-man tourneys.

It reflects poorly on Bellator for a different reason, that being they aren't accommodating their roster, especially their BW's, but it has nothing to with putting stock in this rating. You may not want to hear that, because it doesn't fit the agenda, but that's the truth if you pay attention to the situation you purport to be informed about, yet aren't as usual.

I'm glad in this thread you're finally getting widely exposed as the shameless whore you are, ZUFFAlogic.

the_sandman - Great KO by King Mo.

Still don't understand the Fightmaster format - but I missed the first 10 minutes of the show. I don't understand how Shamrock is going to get a full team? Do the last fighters up just get stuck with him?
Great KO, but made no sense at all during his interview when he was trying to explain how he got knocked out by a running away sissy spinning backfist...that sissy backfist sure did drop his ass Phone Post 3.0

MMMALOGIC said Bellator was dead like 2 years ago, now he gives them another 2 years or 3, he just keeps adding on, maybe one day he will be right and can say "See! I told you!", what a prophet!

Stannis Baratheon - We all need to stop worrying about who's working for who and worry about winning me the kings throne of westeros.

That's all that should matter to all of you. Phone Post 3.0

break up with your red headed girlfriend. shes no good for anyone. the woman is a witch!

A WITCH!

Robert's bastard (the welder boy) has a stronger claim to the throne than you do, Stannis.

Give it up, dude. You tried to invade King's Landing and you failed. Besides that, you're boring, you have a shitty, dull personality, and you lock your daughter and wife in a fucking dungeon.

You're no king. Phone Post

You tell em GSPFan!  Stannis is the brother of a man who injured himself from a boar! what kind of man is this? How can the Baratheons rule the 7 kingdoms when they cannot outwit a simple 4 hooved mud pig!

Dude, he died from a boar because he was poisoned. Robert was set-up yo. Phone Post 3.0

oh but that hog wasnt just a regular pig my fine feathered friend. That boar was the secret bastard son of Rob Stark and Jamie Lanister.

No the Hawks scored twice in the last 20 seconds or some shit to win the cup so no game 7 on Wed.

As for the ratings Bellator ratings are always crazy, they could pull 900k next week, you never know.

How much of the first week was NFL and a new night?  Now that its been on and people know it was on and on Wed night more people could watch.  Or  NFL, the new night could have meant nothing and people just dont care about this show and it does 450k viewers again. 

I would think it goes up a bit, maybe 600k but we've seen with TUF the first episode is usually the big one and then its downhill from there but this show did terrible out of the gate so you figure it has nowhere to go but up.
