Nice signing for Bellator. As a fan a Mayday i wish him the best. UFC screwed up when they let Higo slide over to Bellator. This is arguably their best, most talented division. A case can be made for FW and LW too, and now WW. Props to Bellator for signing these guys; Mayday, Higo, Larkin, Rory, Meathead. They are doing well in some areas but there's still a lot of work to do.

Maybe give Mayday an easy fight against Joe Warren, and id like to see him fight the loser of Dantas/Higo.

Seems like an odd request win a fight and then get the loser of that next one but that would be the fight I'm looking most forward to for Mayday!

hopefully with all this talent coming over to Bellator they will abandon the MMA senior tour route they were heading.

No kidding! Unfortunately the real hard core fans like that kind of stuff. They like the WWE type trash talk and all that stuff.

Its a shame Sonnen vs Wandy is the Main Event. I'm liking Lima/Larkin the most myself. I think Larkin wins a competitive fight there.

They unfortunately have nothing but positive data supporting the old guy fights.

They are slowly getting better ratings from pure talent cards but when the old guy fights pull millions of viewers its hard not to keep feeding the fire.

Im hoping they get enough talent to where these freak & senior fights get further and further between.

Bellaforce coming along nicely tho....war coker!!#

It will be interesting to see how this PPV sells.

It's one thing getting people to tune into a freak show (I don't really think Wandy/Sonnen is a freak show but I had no better term) for free, but it's another thing entirely to hope they'll pay for it.

My guess is the PPV will underperform their last one, but the live gate will more than make-up for it.

I also think their TV ratings will improve over the next year with the addition of legitimate talent throughout their roster.

Hopefully they start paying the undercard guys a little better now. I think they're getting paid in Dave and Busters gift cards presently.

Lima/Larkin is a hell of a fight. I'd prop you but I have to spread the love.
