    Joe Rogan said on his podcast it was "a done deal" then Dana came out and said it wasn't. Dana always lyin though.

    Yeah me either. Cowboy is no joke though. It would be interesting to see what happens if he actually beats Conor. Conor still by far the sport's biggest star. But dude doesn't have a W on his record since 2016.

    Max vs. Tony is super interesting. Two of the most entertaining fighters in the game right now. I'm ready for Max to come up and challenge some of these lightweights. I really hate that we got robbed of Max vs. Khabib. He has the skillset to really hurt Khabib before he can get him to the ground.

    I’d have to take Connor over Cowboy but it could be a good fight.

    Hard to pick against Max against anybody at this point.

    Considering Bellator isn’t even the AAF equivalent of MMA promotions, there’s not much reason to at the moment.

    If you watch any of these other promotions and compare it to even BAD ufc cards... you’ll be hard pressed to choose one of the smaller guys. The skill is clearly in the UFC right now.

    Bellator could be a good promotion if they would quit having these main events with old washed up fighters.

    They have to fill the roster with pro quality fighters... something they are struggling with.

    Bellator doesn't have the resources the UFC has but I think it's a damn good product, especially as one that I don't have to pay for. Not to mention they routinely put on tournaments. They don't have the top talent, but they have an interesting enough roster to put on entertaining fights. I do agree that they need to lay off washed up main events though. They have been able to poach top tier guys like Rory and Gegard though.

    The tournament set up is about the only thing they have that makes the promotion interesting. You might get quality fight per card with them though.

    I’ve paid $60 for a UFC ppv and it was a snooze. Bellator is free freefty

    But reality is... even fight nights (free) are typically better than bellator
