Bellator's anticipated London card drops Friday ... sometime. 

I'm still trying to figure out when exactly this thing is happening, as it'll be tape-delayed for some inexplicable reason in the U.S. 

Anyone know what the deal is?

The deal is that Bellator(and the UK apparently) love tape delays.

Its because they not want it to be at 2 in the morning there in London.

Looks like theyre not even streaming the prelims live on the spike site... which means they wont start streaming them until after the main event has actually happened.

It looks like the UK version of spike is showing the last 2 prelims and then the main card is live on channel 5, which is surprisingly mainstream. So we'll get it before you guys.

@pillory we don't like tape delay here- its just belator obviously arnt as in to your lunchtime MMA as much as the fightpass european cards... which I supose being on a work day might have some reasoning

I hope bellator finds a network that doesn't air the fights on a tape delay soon.

@wiflet

Exactly.  If this was on a Saturday, Bellator would at least consider airing it live to the US from the UK.

Personally, I don't care about the tape delay.  I just want to be able to watch the event.

there was actually something of a delay on the uk broadcast too- I noticed the results being updated here (I don't know where those results we're coming from, did someone go live?) about 15 minutes before it came on my tv.

Daley showed how easily he can be dominated.

Brilliant match-making by Coker. Daley is a big name to MMA fans and Rory had a horrible style match-up for him. Rory looks fantastic in his debut and that's an easy sell for a title shot. Fun little division they've got there.

@Nirvanaguy,

"I hope bellator finds a network that doesn't air the fights on a tape delay soon"

Since Bellator and Spike TV are both owned by Viacom, I wouldn't hold my breathe 'till that happens.
