What is dana trying to do? he wants to let Bellator have a turn up the top?
Call me crazy, but I'm starting to think this is EXACTLY what Dana wants, especially after saying he was sure Bellator would pick up Fitch, saying he had no problem with Rebney airing Bellator commercials during UFC events, & mentioning "Bellator" a lot lately.
I think Dana wants to get Bellator big, then buy it out just like WEC & SF to sign the best fighters to UFC & keep Bellator going as an excellent UFC-feeder organization with their tournament-only format for determining title fights, being PERFECT to groom and help separate outstanding young fighters...
This would be like a TUF on steroids running year round to develop up-and-coming fighter for Zuffa!
