Why have 2 belts on the same card then??? It’s dumb and pointless. I don’t want to see showcase fights, I want a nice evenly matched battle between 2 high caliber guys (or 1 mid level guy and a fraud). It’s not Bellator vs Rizin which is exactly why it sucks. Russian promotions gonna Russian promotion I guess

Because it is a CO-PROMOTION. It’s a showcase of the best fighters from the two promotions. They won’t fight each other because they’re tied to their respective promotions via contracts. Idk why you’re so worked up about them not fighting.

Nobody’s worked up but you buddy, it’s just stupid ****** matchmaking. Who gives a **** if it’s a co promotion or not? So is Bellator vs Rizin, and they’re making their top fighters fight each other cause theyre not record padding scammers. Idgaf if it’s a co promotion, your “champion” fighting a 10-12 can is GARBAGE no matter what
