Don't expect the UFC to cram another show onto its already busy end-of-year schedule to compete with Bellator MMA. Dana White told MMAjunkie.com there will be no counter-programming Bellator 106.

No need to. Its more embarrassing if (when) they fail on their own.

Seriously Belator...the one thing you had going for you was that you built your own talent rather than accepting the dregs of the UFC. What happened?

No counter means no excuses. Dana just provided the rope. Now it's up to Bellator to not hang themselves.

Yall act like bellator failing with this means their going under. Even if they fail it will just be a lesson learned for them.

Bellator isn't going anywhere.

This is Dana White talking. I won't be surprised if tomorrow he announces an event for that night. And then on Monday he says there is no event. And then on Friday there is an event. And then on Saturday Zuffa buys Bellator

Eddie, Hector, and Marlon were made stars elsewhere and no one minded that Bellator didn't "build" them.

Tito and Rampage are two legends who are past their prime. They're main eventing a PPV which is being done for legal reasons mainly, but also to attract new viewers to Bellator who are watching Spike. It's not like they cancelled tournaments or something

what legal reasons? Is it something in their contracts?

Kurt Pelligrino, Babalu, Brett Rogers (Strike force I know, still a wash out) War Machine, Roger Huerta, Seth Petruzelli, Neil Grove etc. I know thre's more I just can't think of them off the top of my head. This is nothing new for them.

Those guys got put into the tournament and treated like everyone else. They were there to stand on their merit as fighters, not stand on past glories.

Main eventing these guys is a joke.

I quoted the wrong post

To keep Eddie Alvarez (and other fighters in the future) they had to put on a PPV to match UFC's contract, which had potential PPV bonus money in it.

I doubt they'll do many more, if any.

That's true, I'm just saying that picking up UFC castaways is nothing new. They aren't getting a title shot with a win I hope.
