I miss the days where every Bellator event had a part of a tournament.  It made it much more exciting.

Is Bellator really only doing 8 fights for an event that happens in 25 days?

Bellator has really sunk in its quality.

@rappinpapsoda Bellator is doing the best they can! In a difficult sport in difficult times! And selling out a few 10 thousand + capacity arenas while doing so

And theres the million dollar tournaments thats a dream win for any fighter, personally I would go for that chance over a UFC contract

However I don't agree with some fighters who were cut

yeah I would actually argue their quality has gone up since moving to showtime. they are second rate to ufc but not a bad promotion by any means

Bjorn Rebney and Scott Coker have done a great job building it up, and alot of fights have been fought in the Bellator cage now, heres to many more, and many more million dollar tournaments

Brennan vs. Lugo
Lucas Brennan, SUB, R1
C'mon Bellator, I get that Brennan is young but hasn't he already beaten enough middle-of-the-road journeymen? Are we really going to learn anything from this?

@rappinpapsoda sorry for talking down to you there, I just think its important to have alternatives to the UFC, and Bellator do a decent job

I see Bellator signed Tofiq Musayev the other day. Another good signing for them. And interesting built in story lines with him having a win over Patricky already.

Ryan Bader, DEC
ah and i had you picked, my friends say he's the softest 265 "titleist", im not scared, i'd out wrestle you, but i dont want a match, id rather have a disney channel duel in 07 bruh', rematch kongo if ever, a guy whom i tweeted for a fight with no response before you guys ever fought. had to repick bader. probaly just an extortiontist in my fathers shoes, i have a toy belt that i treat as real, but youre weak ryan.

According to Rosta this is the third time Cotton's pulled out from a fight against him. Romero don't want that "fighter with a pulse" smoke.

And now he gets a guy who hasn't beat anyone with a winning record since 2016! You might as well rebook him on another event at that point.
