Bellator 130's Bobby Lashley: 'I'd lose sleep' over early-career criticism
Bobby Lashley feels like he was viewed as a sideshow when he first entered MMA in 2008. He believes people saw him as little more than another pro-wrestling crossover looking to surf the wave off Brock Lesnar’s momentum.

Video: Scott Coker re-brands Bellator MMA as 'Spikeforce'
I'll say one thing about Scott Coker, he certainly has a sense of humor (9:04 mark). The former Strikeforce CEO, who was hired to replace the deposed Bjorn Rebney as President of Bellator MMA, is asking the mixed martial arts (MMA) community to give him 18 months to right the ship, in which time the tournament format will be scrapped, new talent will be signed, and exciting fights will be promoted. Coker, who helped discover the next generation of stars including Ronda Rousey, Daniel Cormier, and Luke Rockhold, among others, is expecting the future to yield big numbers for Spike TV. But will you be patient enough to stick around for the results?

Scott Coker says changes coming to Bellator in 2015
It doesn't quite seem like it, but it's been four months since Scott Coker took over from Bjorn Rebney as the CEO of Bellator MMA. With one exception, changes when watching Bellator aren't that evident. But the feeling is there will be a different look come the new year.
