Thanks for putting these discussion threads up, Mods.

Lately I've been working Saturday nights and these discussion threads with the results are like a lifeline for me.

Fastest I can recall was Terry Etim in ufc around 15-16 seconds, think he's opponent was called something like faalatto, maybe wrong on the name

When did Bellator go back to being on Paramount too? I thought main cards were being transitioned entirely to DAZN?

They've probably been getting about 250-275 views per card on DAyZinN so maybe that has convinced them that a change was necessary.

I support this.

Fun fact:

All of the compelling fights on this card are taking place on the pre-lims.

I don't think I'm going to even bother streaming the main card unless I run out of shit to do later.
