I've really enjoyed Bellator so far, but have been a little dissappointed with season 3, mainly due to the weightclasses - even the normally exciting Bantamweight division hasn't been amazing. Season 4 is expected to have the 4 original weight classes again - Featherweight, Lightweight, Welterweight and Middleweight. Here are the fighters currently expected to take part in Season 4, some are returning from previus seasons and some are new.
Pittbull Freire (14-1)
Wilson Reis (10-2)
Georgi Karakhanyan (14-2)
Zac George (20-3)
Eric Larkin (3-0)
Carey Vanier (10-3)
Toby Imada (25-14)
Brent Weedman (17-5)
Ferrid Kheder (18-5)
Marcin Held (10-1)
Rob McCullough (19-6)
Dan Hornbuckle (22-3)
Steve Carl (11-2)
Rick Hawn (8-0)
Chris Lozano (6-0)
Michael Chandler (5-0)
Jim Wallhead (20-5)
Bryan Baker (16-2)
Eric Schambari (15-2)
Brett Cooper (12-6)
Dragan Tesanovic (7-0)
Here are the 2 fighters i'd most like to see in each of the 4 weightclasses....
Chris Weidman (3-0-0) - He's a two-time All-American wrestler and did fantastic at the 2009 ADCC submission championships, notably against Andre Galvao. In his last fight he beat the previusly unbeaten ROC champion Uriah Hall by 1st round TKO. Possibly the best prospect in all of MMA.
Tom Watson (13-4-0) - The Brit has been dominating the smaller organisations for a long time now, and its time he got a shot with a major promotion. Holds wins over Matt Horwich and Travis Galbraith.
Gunnar Nelson (8-0-1) - He has finished all of his fights, and 7 of the 8 in the 1st round. Beat previusly unbeaten Eugene Fadiora (9-0) in his last fight, and Danny Mitchell (8-1) before that. Still just 22 years old.
Paul Bradley (14-2-0) - The American wrestler has been fighting all over the smaller organisations, and submitted Johnny Rees in his last fight.
Lukasz Sajewski (8-0-0) - He's just 20 years old, and in his last fight Sajewski handed fellow prospect Marcin Held (8-0 at the time) his first defeat. He's finished 6 of his 8 fights.
Matt Veach (14-2-0) - UFC vet Veach got released after his loss to Paul Kelly at UFC 112., but has since racked up 3 straight wins over good competition.
Mark Adams (6-0-0) - He's the English BAMMA featherweight champion and recently beat Alan Omer (14-2 at the time) to defend his title. He has a good camp as he trains at Team Kaebon with Terry Etim, Paul Kelly and Paul Taylor.
Doug Evans (17-7-0) - UFC vet Evans dropped to featherweight afetr leaving the UFC and has been successful, becoming the shark fights featherweight champion. He lost the title in his last fight in a contraversial split decision to Ronnie Mann though.
How about your idea's for fighters to compete. Remember, they must be unassigned from one of the major promotions!
