RE: Bellator: The MLS of mixed martial arts

in #sportstalk2 months ago

Bellator has never really caught my interest. I was excited when Roy Nelson went over there but like a lot of the UFC throwaways they seem to actually get WORSE when they make the move, almost like they have this feeling as though they don't need to train as hard since they are now in the minor leagues. I agree that they are the MLS of MMA and that is very unlikely to change since UFC basically has a monopoly on the sport and as long as Dana White can start to have some actual sincere rules on who gets to fight for the belts I don't really have a problems with that (IE you don't get a title shot just because you can cut a good promo or have a massive twitter following)
