he's decent..but he wasnt goin anywhere in MFC, after failin to win the WW belt 2 times..Bellator is definitely a big step up for Ford..i dont really see this goin too good for him..Bellator WW divison is f*ckin stackd with awesome fighters (whom i believe 50% of em will end up in UFC one day)..he wont beat guys like Hornbuckel, Hawn, Killa B, Hieron..Ford has a pretty record, but like i said Bellator has alot better fighters than the ones he been fightin lately..when he has step up competition, he lost (Lima, Healy)..i give up on this guy long ago, when i realized he evolved as much as he could..he's strikin hasnt changed, he has decent TD's..and thats it..

To be fair he lost to the same fighter in 2 of his losses and he smashed a lot of okay guys.
