    Viacom executives get off your butts and put your Bellator preliminary fights on B.E.T. or M.T.V. or on the CBS Sports channel so you can expose your preliminary fights to a broader audience. And make advertisers want to use the preliminary fighters as walking billboards to help expose their businesses and to put some money in these fighters pockets. Or sell your preliminary fights rights to YouTube and let YouTube gave Bellator a larger audience. For the most part these salaries are PATHETIC. Fighters first my a_ _.
