Is Bellator MMA done or what?

It would suck to be a Bellator fighter right now.  They are locked into a contract and there’s not even a light at the end of the tunnel.  

What are the chances fighter’s can get out of their contract and come to UFC?

 

I’d say about 0...

I assume it comes down to a DAZN issue or something?  It can’t be the live gate cause I’ve been to 20+ Bellator events and half the crowd is always family and friends of the fighters, and cornermen, especially on the Indian ground events.

Sucks for them because they are tied into a contract and can’t compete for upwards of 5-6 months at least it seems.  I haven’t heard many Bellator athletes complaining so maybe they are fine with the monthly salary.

Hopefully, they take advantage of this break and reboot/rebrand.

They are owned by viacomCBS...  if the UFC was also owned by another snowflake company like say espn/disney they too would be shelved until the woketards say its ok to come out. 

this is also a good opportunity to step back and reassess the strategy by the new guy in charge stephen espinoza.

lots of challenges Bellator is facing in this environment.

no gate revenue/casino site fees.  Dazn not looking to renew.  Sponsorhip/Advertising spend dropping like a rock...thats potentially more than 50% of their revenue gone.

Get rid of Coker. I really liked Bjorn’s Bellator. They built unknown guys up and the tournament format was exciting. Coker turned it into a circus and a graveyard for careers on their deathbed. Fucking non-USADA Bader is your heavyweight champ. Seriously?

I don’t think they care about the gate.  But other stuff are solid points

I actually liked Bjorn too.  I met him several times and he was always encouraging to the fighters.

You raise some excellent points although Coker is good to the fighters. This is rare quality

Coker fucking ruined bellator before covid came into town.

Coker lost his money from DAZN for trowing fights like Hooters girl Vs Instagram model, and to 50 year old dudes who can't move and one goes down off a jab!
