Just noticed the phrase on the poster for tonight's event.
"Where title shots are earned, not given."
Not sure how long they've had the phrase, but it's true. Seems to be a common occurrence in the UFC these days where title contenders are sometimes judged based on their popularity instead of their actual track record. This is why I enjoy Bellator. Each title shot is a title shot earned through tournaments. I'll be heart broken if the UFC purchases Bellator in the future.
How do you guys feel about Bellator?
