Some of the best fighters in the World are in Bellator and if it wasn't for contract BS the UFC would snatch up a good number of those guys in a heart beat. There are plenty of fighters in Bellator that would be instant contenders and instantly in the UFC top 10 rankings. Anyone that thinks Michael Chandler and Pat Curran aren't elite world class fighters doesn't know what they hell they are talking about.
it seems that you have more faith in their talent than they do themselves, because they're still putting tito vs rampage as the main event of their first PPV

they do have talent, but with this main event they're basically trying to cash on washed out names, putting them ahead of what they have best.

so basically the message is: "UFC dropouts are better than genuine bellator talent"

it's like nobody down there ever heard of PR and communication.

AND, while promoting it, they basically mention the UFC more than themselves, which is, again, counter productive if they want to legitimize their own talent and brand.

look at how little Dana speaks of bellator, pretty much never, because he knows that the more he speaks of them, the more he'll promote them and put their name out there, the more it gives them significance. Dana doesn't do that, he's pretty much a PR genius when you really understand what PR is.

Bellator is not even near that level.

They were pretty legitimate a couple years ago, now they're the company people make fun of. and with tito vs page, they're making it pretty easy.

I watch Bellator and I enjoy their shows, but this is what I can't understand. You put Tito vs Rampage over Chandler and Alverez. Their first fight was awesome and this is not the main event?

Isn't Chandler/Alvarez a title fight?

In the UFC that would automatically be Main Event, not two has-beens punching it out.

Well one is a Interim title because King Mo needs a second chance.
