Bellator season 9 review: What worked, what didn't and what to do next
It was perhaps the most pivotal and controversial season in Bellator's history. From an ill-fated moved to pay-per-view to a run-in with their former (and now current) champion to record ratings and one of the year's best fights, Bellator had quite a ride in season 9. I've watched all the events. I even attended one of them. We've read all the interviews, seen all the sights, heard all the talk. In review of season 9, here's what worked, what didn't and an assessment of what's next...

Brandon Thatch taking time off to heal, retool fighting style
It happened quickly, that Brandon Thatch took the UFC’s welterweight division by storm. With first-round stoppage wins in his first two fights with the promotion, including a “Knockout of the Night” win in his debut, the Coloradan is admittedly still soaking in all the buzz from his fast start – which includes eight straight wins before signing with the UFC. But now Thatch (11-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) is ready to sit back for a moment, nurse up and come back healthier – and, he hopes, even better...

Heath Herring starts fight promotion in Argentina
For the last five years, it’s become increasingly hard to tell Heath Herring from a red herring. The "Texas Crazy Horse" spent a dozen years in the cage facing the full scroll of heavyweight giants in Pride and the UFC before a vague contract dispute with the latter sort of sent him off like a tumbleweed down the 101 freeway towards Hollywood. Since that night five years ago in Minneapolis, back when he was bull-rushed and battered by Brock Lesnar at UFC 87, he has been cast as the prototypical bad guy in every kind of B-film known to never touch the silver screen. He went onto the World Series poker circuit, and ebbed and flowed with the cards that came down the river. He became a stuntman...

John Lineker cut 11 pounds in one week with Dolce Diet
John Lineker could have earned a shot at the flyweight title with his fourth consecutive victory inside the Octagon, but the fact that he missed weight in three of his five UFC fights played against him. Lineker scored three knockouts in a row in 2013, the last one over Phil Harris at UFC Fight Night 30 in Manchester, England, and he guarantees you won’t see him miss weight anymore.

Bjorn Rebney considering Daniel Straus-Pat Curran 3 for next Bellator 145 title fight
BETHLEHEM, PA. – Daniel Straus avenged one loss earlier this month, and he’s on track for a shot at avenging another one, as well. But that’s only if Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney doesn’t flip the script on things just a little bit. Straus (22-4 MMA, 8-1 BMMA) won the Bellator featherweight title at Bellator 106, outpointing Pat Curran (19-5 MMA, 9-2 BMMA), the man who handed him a loss in April 2009. As champion, he’s scheduled to face Patricio Freire (21-2 MMA, 9-2 BMMA) next after “Pitbull” won the Season 9 featherweight tournament a week ago.
