    As for Cro Cop, eh why the fuck not. MMA isn't interesting at all right now, it's pretty damn boring.

    The live thing I'm saying there is mainly on value of the fight on this card, I could understand placing this fight on the card if the venue wouldn't sell out, but it would have anyway, and if it's not on PPV or live broadcast, it's not really needed to boost viewership too. If they want to spend a lot of money on Nelson and Cro Cop, book it where it's needed.
    It's hard to take anything serious as a legitimate sport when there is no live coverage of it, to most casual fans I think that smacks of low budget and unworthy

    It looks like Rampage-Wandy 4 might on Bellator's next senior circuit fight.

    Funny, they used to be able to though. You don't need to be Chael or Conor to be promotable/marketable, Randy and Chuck are polar opposites, and neither have charisma but both are/were very promotable. I refuse to believe that being a great fighter is not promotable. Obviously, we're not talking Conor/Ronda/Brock level's here, but they are outliers.

    Exactly, a casual fan will always struggle to really garner interest if they know the result before they see they action.

    Poor examples imo, Chuck and Randy had the IT factor.

    For some reason I can't see the rest of your message on my phone.

    As for MMA being a legitmate sport, it'll never happen imo, or at least not for a long time. As much as MMA fans and even certain extent, you guys, hate on pro wrestling, pro wrestling made MMA. MMA shares so many of the same factors, it'll just never reach that legitmate stage and if it does it'll turn into boxing imo.

    Oh my......apparently the headline for Bellator 196 is supposed to be Benson Henderson vs. Roger Huerta

    Jesus Christ.......surely it's time to demand better from Bellator, this is awful matchmaking. Huerta is nowhere near the level to be fighting a guy like Bendo now, or has been for maybe more than 7 years.

    For sure, I assume they must just want to feed a guy with a bit of a "name" to Benson to make him look good.

    Yeah, Huerta is way past his best before date for major competition...the only good thing is Benson won't hurt him too bad
