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?

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.



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.

Interesting, thanks!

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.

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.



After Rampage beats Tito I wouldn't be surprised if Bellator tried setting up King Mo versus Rampage if Mo gets by Newton, especially after all the trash talking they've done about each other. I'd be okay with that as long as Mo got KTFO, or at least battered for 25 minutes.
