I've been out of the loop with my Bellator news. What's up with them? Why are they waiting until April to put on a show?

@Meers222
They have a news conference Feb 9 where there will be a "big announcement". My two guesses are they either got a broadcast deal with a network for April and want to wait to capitalize on that or they sold the promotion.

SOLD

I also feel like they got sold. April Big News. Those 2 things are odd and all the employees like Chael not saying a word. When did Chael Joe Rogan etc. sell out. **** Bellator Chael just tell us whats up????

wont be surprise if they sold bellator, they never found  a way to devellopt there own prospects and UFC only lets go the olds guys.

I mean, Patricio Pitbull, Diego Lima, Vadim Nemkov are all good but did anyone not working for bellator think one of them can beat a top 5 in is UFC weight class?

For a time I believed Illima-Lei could but at the moment she faced a tougher test she lost and I wont be surprise if Julliana Velasquez can't get past Carmouche.

Machida is one of those guy many think he is good because he had win fightat tthe time MMA calliber was weaker (like Rua, Wanderlei Silva, Belfort...)

Bader kick is ass by dominant UD or by KO not doubt about it.

Just shut up dude, they no pre requesent of watching tape to talk about fights. A majority  of people here don’t watch tape, As that **** time consuming and would rather watch new fights. Also don’t be a **** because someone don’t agree with you on a pick, and espacaly if they didn’t give a explanation. Just makes you out to be a massive bell end.

Why don't you talk like you graduated 8th grade for God's sake! Maybe you can have an adult convo then. And I can tell barely anyone does tap study on tapology. Almost everyone has under 50% predictions right. Completely embarrassing. Do tape study and you don't look like a bone head with terrible picks.
