      What’s the word on UFC/ Monster? Is Attack poker still sponsoring Bellator or did they decide not to renew like a lot of their other sponsors lately? They got a new sponsor, but it’s not a big one. (Draft OPS) I can’t believe Tap Out is gonna sponsor the WWE.

        At this time, the only sponsors that I know are advertising with Bellator are Miller Lite and Dave and Busters.

    Attack Poker isn’t sponsoring Bellator anymore instead it’s Draft OPS. So many Sponsors are dropping Bellator. Prolly chose not to renew.

    Dana said that McGregor is the most marketable fighter of all time and that Aldo vs McGregor would be the biggest fight of the yr. I highly disagree with him on both of the things he said. I think these are bigger fights than Aldo vs McGregor: Jones vs DC/ Silva vs Diaz/ Weidman vs Belfort/ Gusto vs AJ/ Lesnar vs Mir 3 if it happens, ect. The best fight well we’ll have to wait and see on that.
