I'm sorta in the middle of you two... Thier Heavyweight and Lightheavyweight divisions are by far the weakest, however they have taken steps to sign some unproven guys, one or two of which may turn out to be a stud. Nobody had heard of Joe Soto, Michael Chandler, Eduardo Dantas, Patricio Freire or Pat Curran before Bellator, but now their ranked as top 10 fighters in their respective divisions.

There's no reason why someone like Vitaly Minakov, Ruslan Magomedov, Alexei Kudin or Ryan Martinez can't be the next one on the list. I'm looking forward to seeing how the above 4 do against veterans like Jon Madsen, Brett Rogers & Thiago Santos.

Cole Konrad, Thiago Santos, Vitaly Minakov, Alexei Kudin, Mark Holata, Richard Hale, Ruslan Magomedov, and Blagoi Ivanov (if he can make a successful comeback) are far from bums or sucking. That's a mixture of solid and talented fighters. Everybody in a lesser organization/division is not lesser. It doesn't work that way. BFC's HW division has grown vastly in a short period of time, in point of fact.

Yeah all of those guys are very good up and coming fighters. I personally think they can probably fair in the UFC heavyweight division as well. Granted they need more experience in Bellator.
