Bellator is close to getting back into the women's MMA business.

They already got rid of their women's division once already. Between the UFC and Invicta, I'm not sure how much top talent could even be added to Bellator, especially with the wave of popular women who were signed for TUF 20.

I think they would simply look at cashing in on Carano and a couple of other still active names 145 at most, something with Viacom and Carano in a promotional deal tied in as well wouldn't surprise me. For someone like her, Viacom plays a significant role in negotiation's I'd imagine since they could find uses for her beyond the cage. This could also be a ploy to leverage a better deal from Zuffa if she actually is interested in going there, I've never been convinced that is the case really though.

She hasn't fought in years and got beat down against Cyborg in her last outing. Rather see UFC help build up what they have now like Holly Holm than go after someone who is really not all that interested in fighting except for a paycheck.

Step 1: replace current CEO with CEO of a fighting league that sold out to the ufc
Step 2: copy "competition" and remove all unique attributes from bellator
Step 3: build up big name fighters that may fail in the ufc
Step 4: sell bellator to the ufc and set up "super fights"
Step 5: profit
We will see where all of this goes but as soon as coker jumped on board things got fishy over at bellator.
