    Bellator shows/ events after it airs is on my PS3 for 2 dollars an episode and 15 bucks for SD for whole season and HD 25 bucks. Or 20 bucks for HD something like that. But they don’t have the tent poles tho. I bought a few episodes and some in HD which is like a dollar more.

    Pride wasn’t called Dynamite, Dream was. If Pride comes back I heard Scott is gonna co promote with them and lend their fighters to Japan. I think after a while Viacom should buy Pride 2.0.

    There’s 8 fights on the Bellator 141 prelims. And 5 outta the 8 are good fights. Including Primus vs Anderson and Sordi vs Mathews. Do you know what’s the 4th fight on the main card? It’s a solid card for Bellator.

    Some ppl like Luke Thomas think Bellator isn’t a true alternative to the UFC. What do you think Jason, you agree? I disagree bc I think Bellator is the only competition to UFC in MMA and their ratings are somewhat similar.

      Also they’re in 500 million homes worldwide and in over 140 countries. Backed by Viacom and on Spike. Hell yeah they are a true alternative to the UFC.

      Depends on what you consider competition in business. I understand where Luke Thomas is coming from and I can see your point as well. Overall, Bellator is a competitor to the UFC. However, many fighters do not consider Bellator a true competitor.

    Bellator’s last few hw signings were Tony Johnson jr, Kimbo, Shamrock, Hood, Gormley, and now Justin Wren. I just don’t get signing Chase Gormley and Justin Wren. I would’ve signed Jon Madsen instead if I were them. Their hw div is terrible and it keeps getting worse and worse. What do you think of their recent signings and matchups?
