    What do you think of the UFC commentator that said Will Brooks dominated the regional scene for years? They give no respect to Bellator. They think Bellator is a regional promotion. Even though they do see them as competition.

    Do you think Brock Lesnar will leave the WWE and go back to the UFC to finish his career there?

    What are 3 fights between now and the end of the year that you wish absolutely happens? For me it’s: Alvarez vs Gaethje, Overeem vs nagnou, and Cyborg vs Holm.

      I am actually watching the UFC fight card right now and have not gotten to the Brooks vs. Lentz fight yet. Generally speaking since I have not heard exactly what the commentators said, the UFC is never going to say the word “Bellator” in their broadcast. And if I was in production with the UFC, I would tell my commentators the same thing. Why would you mention your competition on your own broadcast? You don’t. Plan and simple. No different in the terrestrial radio world where I started my broadcasting career. You never mention your competitors signal or call letters.

      I do not rule out Lesnar coming back to MMA. But if it were to happen, I think it’s in the next hour. Age is not on his side (turns 41 next year).

      3 fights that I’m looking forward to seeing: Alvarez vs. Gaethje, Ponzinibbio vs. Perry, and Overeem vs. Ngannou. Other fights that I am interested to watch the rest of the year (no particular order): Swanson vs. Ortega, Cyborg vs. Holm, Elliott vs. Scoggins, and Lovato Jr. vs. Honeycutt.

        The commentator said Will brooks dominated the regional scene. They think Bellator is a regional promotion. And Bellator always mentions UFC in their broadcasts and press releases. I hate that and I don’t understand why they do it all the time.

        Can you believe UFC refers to Bellator as a regional promotion? Man does UFC hate their competition. They hate competition period.

        I just wish Bellator would stop mentioning the UFC on their broadcasts and press releases. They even mention WSOF and other lower level MMA promotions.

    What do you think of the UFC going head to head with Bellator on January 20th on their debut on the Parmount Network? And Bellator announced that date way before UFC.

    Also do you agree with Matt Mittrione that he is Bellator’s best heavyweight?

    • Jason Floyd

      When Bellator decides to run a Saturday show, they have to understand that there’s a good chance that the UFC will be running a show on that date due to their television contract with FOX Sports.

      As I stated on recent podcast, Matt Mitrione is my favorite to win the heavyweight tournament.

    Why do ppl say that Rizin’s next show is their 9th? It’s actually their 10th show.
