No.

But for sure I'll be taking a more active interest in Bellator cards containing these fighters.

Bellator have had Jimmy Wallhead, Ronnie Mann, Neil Grove and Greg Loughran all fight for them in the past so it might be more to do with scouting actual unknown and cheap talent rather than looking to expand into a UK market that, honestly, doesn't exist.

I just can't feasibly imagine where there is any kind of significant profit to be made for Bellator here, other than gates from live events.

I have no idea how much money Viva have paid Bellator to show some events, but i bet it doesn't pay the show money for one Paul Sass fight.
