As far as talent goes...Yup I sure do. They also appear to be a real classy organization. They know their place in the Promotional food chain as well which will serve them well for years to come.

Although I've heard of them for some time, in name only really, I've recently been watching it when it's on; which seems to be all the time.

I like the tourney setup a lot! Good fights.

I love Bellator, so many good fights!

Def enjoy it more then Strikeforce lately, but still Strikeforce has had a couple of awesome cards except for the last two.

Overall i like Bellator better but SF has the potential to set up more exciting individual matches.

I agree with the premise of this thread. I don't watch it religiously, but since it's basically on new every week, I try and catch a few fights. Every time I do I get treated to relentless striking, and very very active submission fighting.

Very good. I love the tourney style, because in my eyes it provides a sport-like structure MMA really needs to employ. Otherwise it's just opinion as to who should fight who.

I have to say that, agreeing with what some others have posted here, about the UFC & Strikeforce, Bellator seems more like a sport to me than the others. Which is something I've been waiting for MMA to attain for many many years!

Good stuff!

**apparently I've already replied to this thread... as a note, I woke up literally 10 minutes ago***

Yeah the tournament style does add a bit of a sports like atomosphere to the promotion. It's similar to the early UFC tournaments and the PRIDE tournaments. Not to mention the tournaments that DREAM and Sengoku now do.
