While last weeks Light Heavyweight tournament was painful, this weeks Heavyweight masquerade at Bellator 111 has potential to put a whole nation to sleep. On the bright side, we have a Bantamweight title fight, with blazing fast striker Eduardo Dantas facing sub grappler Anthony Leone.
It was a night of local talent for us folks in New England as Bellator rolled into Mohegan Sun and put on their Featherweight and Light Heavyweight tournaments at Bellator 110. The card had potential to be solid with the Featherweights keeping our pulse going while the 205lbers worked towards putting us to sleep.
This coming weekend will see three live major MMA events take place in less than a 24 hour span. Titan FC, Bellator will be holding events on Fridays night, while the UFC is in China and their card will stream over Fight Pass in the early morning on Saturday.
It's been awhile since we've had Bellator rocking our airwaves, but Season Ten rolls out starting Friday, with a mess of tournaments at Bellator 110. Whether you like the format or not, there’s some decent fights to be had in this event, with the Light Heavyweight mini-tournament being the highlight of the evening.
Last summer I wrote a piece about the business of MMA, detailing all sides of the fight game as it pertains to the UFC and their fighters. As the topic continues to generate buzz, fighters continue to air their dirty laundry and key players in the UFC continue to curse their way into the hot seat.
Bellator will get their 10th season started in just under two weeks and with the new season comes five new tournaments. While Bellator has deviated a bit, the tournament format is still their bread and butter.
As last year ended we promised that we would be adding Women’s rankings to the monthly updates of the MMA Fighter Rankings and we are very pleased to finally bring them to you. Along with the top five fighter rankings in the Men’s Flyweight – Heavyweight divisions you can now get the Women’s top five from the Atomweight – Featherweight divisions.
If a friend asked you, an avid MMA fan, to describe the World Series of Fighting, what would you say? Honestly, a little over one year into the promotion’s existence, I have no idea what I tell them. And I’m not so sure the brass at World Series of Fighting would know what to say either. Pretty soon though, that uncertainty is going to become a problem. Lofty goals mixed with some financial backing can garner results for some time; but lacking a solid value proposition and true identity is a surefire way to ensure your downfall. Differentiation is vital in a saturated marketplace.
