Keep in mind that this is a company who gave contracts to Warmachine, Brett Rogers, Falcao, and Paul Daley.

Lol true that. To be honest I had never watched Bellator before fight master started. I could never really take it seriously and none of the fighters got me excited. But its starting to make an impression now with a very well produced show and the signings of some big name fighters albeit some of them are has beens. Bellator is getting their shit together pretty fast its seems to me

I thought fightmaster was pretty lame (in all fairness, I stopped watching TUF awhile ago aswell) and it is not doing so hot ratings wise. Realistically, my dislike of fightmaster probably has more to do with Frank Shamrock than anything else, I cant stand listening to him talk. The guy has always seemed like a self righteous douche.

Honestly that's why I've enjoyed it thus far. Yeah the fighters don't seem to be very high level but I like that I'm just basically watching the fights. I don't care about the house nonsense.

I could see how people would think that, he is certainly a bit odd but the dude was an exceptional fighters, and is a great coach too from what I can see.

I agree as well on all counts. Honestly I think his oddness is what helped make him an exceptional fighter and a good coach. His coaching record certainly speaks for itself cause he got three of his four guys out of the first round.

Poor Frank Shamrock, he had his number 1 guy get crushed by the likely winner, he took on the lowest ranked fighter in the tournament and lost a close decision, and now his final guy who is a very good wrestler...is now facing the better wrestler that defeated him.

On the other hand it's going to be hilarious to watch Joe Riggs Murder-Kill-Death Joe Warrens last guy.

I have to say I was a bit skeptical about this show when it started but the fights have been fantastic and the semi's/finals should be amazing as it's likely Joe Riggs vs Mike Bronzoulis and Cole Williams vs Eric Bradley

I hope this show is renewed for another season cause if that's season one imagine what other seasons could produce. Obviously they should probably do a different weight class next time around. Another thing they might want to consider is other coaches.
