He was one of the few Bellator guys I always tuned in to watch. I served with his cousin so always rooted for him.

Honeycutt has been cut? I'd be surprised by that but then again, I expected him to do much more in Mma than he has. He has stagnated

If it wasn’t for COVID-19 there would be some solid guys there for anyone wanting to put a show together.

We are from the same small city and I see him around from time to time.

Wow. Some really surprising names there for a company that is not huge on star power.

I suppose if he wants to go after Werdum, Barboza, Dodson, et al., Coker needs to free up some cash.

Crazy they cut Ricky Bandejas and Joe Schilling. For many like these two they just released them of their fight contracts and want to renegotiate.  Its a financial move but not going to sit well with fighters and fans alike.
