Honestly I think he went on a more round about way to get into Bellator. He's got sixty pro fights and went into a reality tournament. This is the equivalent of Roy Nelson going through the Ultimate Fighter in order to get into the UFC.

That is what I thought, I would have thought they would take him without going through that. Maybe they are paying him more or something to get some more name recognition in the show?

Well now that I think of it that winner of Fight Master does get money. His motivation may have had to do more with that then the actual Bellator tournament. Fight round and second round winners don't get that much compared to the grand prize.

Yeah but the guy is a recovering addict who is known for breaking mentally. Not the kind of dude you want to hand a nice contract to until you've seen he has really recovered. Looks like he has though

Honestly I would think this would be harder on him cause of the weight cutting. However, I do agree that this is a good way of testing to see if his issues are under control. I also agree it looks like they are.

The whole show feels rushed now like we don't even get a chance to really know anything about the fighters.

I agree it's got a really quick flow as compared to TUF.

To bad it was the only impressive thing he did after getting pummeled while his opponent didn't even look good while pummeling him.

Thats pretty harsh dude. The guy was outclassed and took a terrible beating but showed amazing heart to stay in there and pull off that submission
