Not a bad match up for Cole. He's still green he could use more cage time and he would have a chance to add a good name under his belt. Favorable style match up and beating a former top ufc contender is not a bad thing. With the exception of Askren and the Goat I am a fan of most of the fights they gave their champs.

I like the idea of Bellator going after some big names.

But I presume it will be non-title.

This is good for Cole. I have a lot of respect for Buentello, but I don't like his chances here. Cole has such a bright future and I wonder just how long he'll stay out of the hands of Zuffa.

Konrad is gonna take Buentello to the floor over and over, Buentello can only win standing.
