Chromium -
RKing85 - be a strong number 2 and give fighters options.

That's all I ask for from Bellator.

The problems are that 1) it's not a "strong" number 2, just a passable one that has yet to make it into the black, and 2) the option it give fighters is that if you're successful enough in Bellator they will trap you there forever, even if you've fulfilled all the fights on your contract. The UFC, despite their position as the world's premier promotion, does not actually do this (for the record, Randy Couture still had fights on his contract when he tried to leave).

Bellator is not benefiting the sport (or themselves even) the way an ethically run #2 would, which is a shame because their format legitimately helps it stand apart, and their has more talent than they usually get credit for.

I honestly hope you have the same opinion in a few years and Bellator doesn't fuck you over as they have other fighters. Phone Post

So you admit that their champions (all of which faced plenty of adversity coming up through the Bellator ranks) could be UFC champions, but yet you choose to call them the minor leagues. That makes absolutely no sense. High level fighters are high level fighters regardless of where they fight.

a lot of champions have had rough starts or lost a few fights before getting into their groove. Phone Post

THey have some really good guys over there. They aren't as deep and don't have as many top guys but they aren't some tiny org. They have tv deals inked and a nice crop of fighters. I like watching some of their events.

And it's great for fighters to have options outside of the ufc. This an important thing for fighters. Phone Post

ufc fans desperately want a zuffa ran mma monarchy for some reason, a lot of people shit on bellator just because its not ufc or try to belittle it because they desperately want to be in the in crowd or something. all im saying is mma fans support mma not the bald white guys running mma.

NastyNate420 - It will never compete with the UFC. Bellators champions could come over and be competitive, maybe even win a belt, but lets take it for what it is, a minor league. I enjoy Bellator, but lets not get any grandiose delusions about its existence.

minor leagues lol! bellator only been around like 5 years and its got every major tv deal ufc has ever had, it also have top ranked fighter so who's delusional? Bellator is major league bro the only differents between ufc and bellator is ufc has ufc fans and bellator has mma fans.

I'm willing to bet 95% of the people here that talk shit on Bellator have either not watched the product or they have and never gave it a fair shake. There is a lot of young, hungry talent in Bellator. The fights are very exciting. Are they at the UFC's level? Of course not but they are a young company with plenty of time and resources to grow. Being "Team UFC" is fucking retarded. They put on free fights every Friday. Just enjoy it and don't be so cynical. Phone Post

Still doesn't change the fact that it comes off as feeling "amateurish" . Firstly they should have hired "Good night Irene" Micheal Schiavello to be the color commentator and them cross promoting with TNA wrestling IMO was a bad move. Like it or not it starts to being into question MMA's legitimacy. It's one thing to have a former "wrastler" become an MMA fighter, its another to have ACTIVE MMA FIGHTERS on a "sports entertainment" show.

At least some of the fights are entertaining, use to love the tournament format but Bellator themselves are undercutting their own belts.

Will see how their first PPV turns out.

Dude, you are smoking some really good stuff.

Most of Bellator's talent is terrible. It is worse than watching the Tuff fights to get into the house.

My girlfriend was laughing her ass off while watching some of the fights last night because the fighters were so bad.

It is fun to watch, but the skill level is no where near the UFC.

Just calling it as it is...
