"Bellator" must translate to "past prime"

Besides Lima and a few more, what's the point, Bellator?  Are they going to wheel out Fedor and talk about how he was/is the goat some more?  But yeah, he beat Crocop and Nog...yeah, and also Zulu, lol.   Some of these fights are on par with the Pride freak fights of the mid 2000s.

I'd rather watch LFA at this point.  At least most of those guys are just former shells of themselves and are striving to be a world champion still.

 

You know Overeem, Cain, and Oleinik are still in the UFC HW rankings right? Arlovski just fell out.

Anderson Silva is the 14th ranked UFC MW.

Lil Nog just fell out of the LHW rankings and Shogun is still in them.

Did you catch the last BJ fight?

Brandon Vera is headlining ONE's biggest show ever in October.

Its not just a Bellator issue.

If you want to see the best of Bellator, watch the two shows with the opening round of the FW tournament that go down in the start and end of Sep. Thats the good side of Bellator.

Tired of seeing all of these CTE cases KEEEEEEP fighting. Shogun hasn't fought since Dec 2018 at least.

BJ should have never been allowed to keep fighting, imo...same with Little Nog.

No desire to see Vera.

Mr Anderson has won 1 (legally, one) fight since 2013, but has lost 6. 

 

It's funny how the people that would shit on anything UFC would also go nuts for a random Bellator card.

 

"Fuck Zuffa!  OMG...King Mo is fighting Ishii!"

Im pretty sure Bader, Gegard , Benson,  kharitonov , red king etc would be ranked highly on the UFC roster. Sure their are some names past prime in bellator but they still have credibility. Bellator didnt make Lidell vs Tito. They probably could have but their is a thin line of not OK and OK fights to make. I think coker is working the bellator roster Ok....

I think Bellator could be a fairly competitive promotion if they did three things:

- Focus on the lighter weight classes, from BW to WW, where there is the deepest worldwide talent pool.

- Focus on tournaments, and don't run the tournaments longer than 6 months.

- Quit putting mismatches on their main cards to promote would-be stars (e.g., Valerie Loureda, Pound Shop McGregor a/k/a Insta-Meme KTFO'd Gallagher, etc.)

Bellator just had a wildly exciting card this weekend. Great matchups. ZERO decisions. 

And Lara. Lara fought. They need to match her up with Janay Harding.
