I really think Bellator > Strikeforce not because of the fighters, but because of the difference in production and product. Although SF has the better fighters I really enjoy watching Bellator a whole lot better because of the commentating and just the general feel of the Bellator show vs. Strikeforce. Although the scheduling conflicts suck, it's nice to have an event every week and if/when they add the HW divison to the tourney it will make the season longer and more quality fights. All in all I've been pretty impressed with Bellator.

I agree with you on everything except for what you said on the heavyweight tournament. The heavyweights will be competing next season in the fall and it won't extend the season because they'll be fighting along with the lightheavyweights, the bantemweights, and the women!

Bellator is much funner to watch, and other than when Fedor is fighting, I look forward more to sitting down and watching bellator. I make sure to skip through all of the production on strikeforce. So regardless of the talent argument, (which more than half of belongs to DREAM, really) I think bellator is a better promotion with more potential and a much more solid base.

Unhappy Other Stuff

Yeah I hate to say it but Strikeforce's production team doesn't know what they're doing!

How does half of that talent belong to DREAM.... ?

I think the only fighters that have fought from that organization that aren't signed are Marius, and Shinya....

Mousasi, Manhoef, Ribero, King Mo..... those guys are all signed long term.

i coudlnt even name more than 5 fighters in bellator and tbh i dont even care. I watch it purely for fights and remember some of the up and comeres. They put on amazing fights but have little starpower. Makes for some really awsome fights to watch.

I just hate that I can't watch it live and there are no good downloads. There are alternatives (thanks Bobby!) but I prefer watching whole events while lying in bed over single fights while sitting in front of the computer. From what I've seen I can say that Bellator is definitely exciting. I'm not a guy who prefers one company over another though. Of course the UFC has the biggest names but if John Smith fought the guy next door on that channel nobody has ever heard about I'd still watch it.

i've found that season 2 bellator torrents are relatively easy to find, they are even at pirate bay.
