lol I think this is kind of stupid. L2 has been phenomenal since I've been on here, I love the combo cards. It gives you a way to actually look out for new talent, remember about what events are on and if you can maybe find a stream, and it makes it so we dont get 1 L2 card every month as previously mentioned.

You guys are doing a great job, and I'm 100% against what that guy wants. Seriously, that would mean only L2 cards when Bellator is on because its the only MMA outside of the UFC that guy seems to watch lol.

considering bellator is mainstream now id like to see an all bellator card at some point.

all fighters were unknown at one point so i dont know what the big deal is.


i will say though that i dont participate much just because i hate waiting all weekend for results. no biggie though :D

I think secondary should just be WSOF and Bellator moving forward. I haven't been able to watch or follow a good deal of the secondary league fights and it takes away some of the fun.

I know the die hard fans like it the way it is but you should consider extending the poll to the main page. I'd imagine a lot of the casual players would also enjoy a bellator\WSOF secondary league. It could bring up the participation.

I love secondary league
I just think L2 would be better if we could have more fights on L2 that are watchable (online or on tv) as to NOT being able to watch any.
I also think having 5 to 6 events on one card is a little much.



Whats the difference if its 1 event or 5? Id rather have the recognizable names and fighters that to do research there is some information on. Its not like the cars are weeks apart, the 5 cards are all on the same weekend.

WSOF is every 2 months or more apart. That was the main complaint of a shit ton of members about the secondary before its current model, that the cards were few and far between.

whats the difference between the point you just made and when the UFC isnt holding an event for month and a half?

Im still in favor of bellator joining the main game. How big does it half to get before its added? Its already on spike and is bigger by leaps and bounds than all of the other promotions not named UFC.

I mean come on this isnt a Fantasy UFC site is it?? No, atleast i didnt think so. Pride was apart of it and it wasnt even as easily accessible to American fans as bellator is.

And im positive the secondary league will survive without bellator.

How often does the UFC hold an event a month and half apart? Once a year?

im not sure on the number of times but im sure its more then once a year.

i know you want things to stay the same and thats fine im just saying the point you made can be said about the UFC as well maybe not the extent of the WSOF but we go through pretty decent sized waits in between "events"

Hasnt happened in 2013 yet. Once a year in 2012 and 2011. Happened twice in 2012, but that was only because of the 151 cancellation. Longest lately is 3 weeks.

dude we just had a long spell. 3 weeks is just a week shy of a month. like i said its not to the extent of wsof, thats not the point im trying to make. Its the inclusion of something other then the UFC in the primary



all fighters were unknown at one point like i said in a previous post. it goes against the logic already stated as to why not to include some fights because the fighter is unknown. All of that talk is subjective. Just because a majority of people dont know who a fighter is doesn't mean somebody else or a group of members dont either. Now of course that would put the people that do know at an advantage sort of, but wouldnt the people that dont know be doing the same thing by not including the unknown fighters??


the subject is too convoluted at this point, and it reallly pains me to be going "against the grain" but i just dont think the best logic is being used secondary or primary league wise. Dont misconstrue my statement, thats not to say good logic isnt being used because it is, just not the best logic

Where's the option to vote for more fights on the cards of lesser known fighters?

Bellator has a weekly schedule, albeit it has seasons and WSOF looks to be putting together regular monthly fights. Between the two I think there would be enough events. Plus, I'd rather be following the new talent of bigger organizations than the wash-ups of the smaller ones.
