so, i don't follow Bellator. i think the last event i watched was their PPV. i did catch the Shamrock/Kimbo fight tho.

 

anyway, out of morbid curiosity, i looked them up on wiki to see who their champs were (i was surprised that the Newton fight wasn't listed as a title bout). Anyway, what's up with their heavyweight title? their champ hasn't fought for them in almost 2 years but fights on random Russian cards? is he still under contract? what's the deal?

 

will watch this for Shamrock/Gracie III because i'm a glutton for punishment. anybody on the prelims worth checking out?

Unless you love stories about pygmies, there is no one on the undercard of note. Just mostly all regional guys and Justin Wren.

 

Yeah, Minakov is under Bellator contract. Anyway, I think Minakov is *suppose* to be working out a deal with them to come back but who knows what that means. Those Fight Night cards are on Fight Pass now so he has been on more UFC sponsored broadcasts than Bellator ones. I think the problem is that Minakov is one of their least priorities. He is their HW champ and like the sixth or seventh most known HW they have by virtue of not being there for two years and being the champ of their most garbage division. There is no way in the world that he fights people like Shamrock or Kimbo. So basically what's the point? It would be easier for them to just vacate the belt so Lashley can win it. That way you at least have an excuse to main event shows with Bobby Lashley instead of him being third from the top. Otherwise, it's just dudes like Lashley, Sergei, and Mitrione (if he chooses to sign with Bellator) having random fights along with the freakshow element.

MMA just got set back 50 years with that fight.

 

Embarrassing as hell but lets be honest this is exactly what Bellator wants.   People will be talking for this disaster for years and years and that is all that matter

 

If you think this is the last we will see of Kimbo in Bellator you are naive as hell
