Nobody has ever called the Bellator HW division interesting but talking about the champ and the top five... the division is actually interesting. None of those top four guys have ever fought each other.

Fortune fights Johnson tomorrow.

Moldavsky fights Ayala tomorrow.

The champ defends his LHW title vs Nemkov in May.

Barnett fights Markes soon.

Kharitonov is returning soon I assume. He fights Rodriguez Jr. on Sat in something called World Total Combat Federation.

Fedor of course has his two last fights of his career taking place this year as well.

March 13th is the Barnett fight.

I expect both Fortune and Moldavsky to win tomorrow but they should not fight each other until one of them get a title shot as they are the two major contenders so one of them should not be killed off by the other.

Bellator..  What a disappointment.  

With UFC having 500 fighters signed... you can't expect a 2nd America/UK focused org to have very interesting cards.

They do a ok job giving fans two or three interesting fights per card and have started to have some good title fights in certain divisions like FW, LW, WW and MW.

This March 13th card is one of the best I've ever seen from them:

Bellator 241 Quick Card

Tyrell Fortune can walk right into the UFC Top 6!  He is by far the best HW Prospect and next big thing in ANY promotion!

 

Even Tim Johnson said so in his pre  fight interview! 

 

Those who know, KNOW!

UGers like to hate on me when I say how good Minakov is but look at how fast Minakov finished Johnson. Look what Johnson did to Fortune tonight.

Man huge upset tonight.

Moldavsky should be next for a title shot. 6-0 in Bellator.

Davion Franklin moved to 1-0 last night. Someone to watch as he is on a Bellator Jackson-Wink scholarship.

Moldavsky has already beat Vassell who just beat Kharitonov. Now beat Ayala who just beat Mir. Lets see if gets the title shot or has to fight again.

Not sure whats going on with Minakov but coming off a Johnson win is a good place to be.

Bellators HW talent pool is not as deep as UFC's but its better than fans give it credit for... Fedor, Barnett, Markes, Moldavsky, Minakov, Bader, Kongo, Johnson, Kharitonov, Vassell, Fortune, Mitrione, Mir, Nelson and Ayala.

I never saw the Mir vs. Ayala fight, but I saw the clip Bellator showed before Ayala's fight last night. Watching Mir get his face smashed and tapping to strikes..... It just tells you that when you have these huge guys who've learned some striking fundamentals almost anyone can get dropped by a single shot.

Bellator's and UFC's HW divisions: Who cares which is better? There are a lot of fun Just Bleed fights in store.

Fedor has already lost to Bader.
Kharitonov just lost to Vassel.
Minakov can't get his US visa straightened out.
Fortune just lost to Johnson.
Moldavsky just beat Vassell and Ayala. 4-0 in Bellator.

Moldavsky should be getting the next HW title shot.
