how the f*ck Moegenburg got a shot in bellator?
I, being totally out of my competitive state and even having stopped training, would have chances to win against this guy. And on top of his mediocre skills this guy is fighting at 102.01 kg weight limit with 1,78m size.
Wasn't bellator supposed to be second best mma promotion after UFC?

@heinrich that's what Bellator would like you to believe, but I'd say there's better fighters in ACA, Open FC, KSW, Brave CF and M-1 Global than there are in Bellator.

Yes, that I meant, that Bellator is pretending to be second best. And has quite good media coverage and has comparably good TV contracts. But a guy like  Moegenburg is on a bellator Event really crazy.


>ACA, Open FC, KSW, Brave CF and M-1 Global 


Especially ONE. At least at the smaller weightclasses and women.
