Underestimated Bellator Consistently Delivering Fan Pleasing Finishes

The sixth season for Bellator is just starting but fans have already been reminded of what the underestimated MMA promotion brings to the table each and every week. Aside from the obvious tournament aspect that draws fans into the drama that unfolds over three separate events, Bellator more often than not delivers crowd pleasing Finishes.

Last night’s Bellator 61 was no different. In the opening fight of the televised main card, Brian Rogers knocked out Vitor Vinna with a flying knee that sent Vinna crashing to the canvas and Rogers into the semi-final round of the middleweight tournament. Vianna had made it to last season’s middleweight tournament and was posed to get back there before Rogers turned out the lights.

Just a week ago at Bellator 60, Pat Curran defeated Joe Warren in the night’s main event with a brutal knockout to capture the featherweight championship. It was all started by yet another knee that sent Warren backwards and widened the eyes of Curran, who poured on the pain as the referee watched (a bit too long).

But its more than just brutal knockouts, Bellator has also given fans great submission and several fight of the year candidates over the last three years. Whether it’s an inverted triangle choke submissions, flying knees or Michael Chandler and Eddie Alvarez going right at each other for 25 minutes, Bellator seems to give fans something to remember every single event.

As Bellator prepares to move over to Spike TV in 2013, the promotion now finds themselves passing Strikeforce on their way to the #2 promotion behind the UFC.

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
