So sounds like Bellator will have exclusive events on this streaming service. Kind of sucks I liked the freebie Bellator shows. Thoughts??

We're entering a world where you need all this if you want to watch all the MMA:
- Fight Pass
- Cable TV or Streaming bundle (I use Sling TV)
Getting a little overwhelming. I don't see how all these services can stay in the MMA game and suspect in a few years there will be consolidation.

Here's the simple truth;the market isn't big enough to accommodate them all. That is to say, there is simply not enough human beings willing to fork over hard earned cash for MMA out there. That's the long and short of it. The situation now is basically akin to if, hypothetically, 12 different fast food chains entered the market to sell nothing but various forms of Jellied eels. In direct competition with an already established Jellied eels fast food vendor that is known and trusted and has cornered 85% of the market.The UFC has a virtual monopoly on the industry. Really everything that isn't it is just scraps and crumbs, and that includes Bellator. It's a stranglehold that won't be shaken off easily.
