I actually e-mailed the writer of the article at mmadiehards and he replied saying Roger Hollett told them. So i'm guessing he has been approached about fighting in a lightheavyweight tournament, and Bellator is currently deciding on whether to hold it in season 6 or in the summer as a summer series event.

Of the other middleweights, Trey Houston is a great prospect, and although he's too green to win this thing, he'd be a great addition (though i've not seen his name mentioned to do with bellator anywhere except wikipedia). Obviously Marquardt would be a great addition. And i'd actually be happy with Parai9sy - yes he was awful on TUF, but since then he's actually looked reasonably decent, and he has a good record. Cooper would be ok if they paired him with O'Donnel or Rogers, he could put on a fun fight, don't think he'd offer much against Vasilevsky or Falcao.

Trey "That Just Happened" Houston is on Bellator's official roster. http://www.bellator.com/Fighters.dbm...IGHTER_START=9

They might give him a couple preliminary fights before he joins a tourney so there isn't such a huge step up in comp at once.

I checked the dude out, and you're right, he does seem to have a lot of ability. Well-rounded and a sick grappler. I'd much prefer him over JT Money or Paraisy. Maybe even Cooper. He has the talent to win the whole thing.

Cooper doesn't have the talent to be a champion in all likelihood, but I disagree that he wouldn't offer much against Falcao or Vasilevsky (who I don't think of as the faves even). I think he offers a lot against anyone. Look how tough of a fight he gave Storm. Fudoshin is well-rounded himself and has a ton of heart. He's 5-1 at MW w/ that tough loss to Storm and some solid wins. 3 of his 7 losses occurred when he was 18. Wish he would have gotten a spot over Victor O'Donnell. I think Cooper could pull the upset against a 1-dimensional wrestler type. His sprawl and brawl is textbook.

Well most fighters in Bellator normally make it on the preliminary card before going into the tournaments. At least a good portion of them anyways. Not all of them start on preliminary cards.

You just have that perception because those are the only fights you can see.

In all seriousness, it probably depends on how much they like a fighter and what his demands are just like when the UFC signs a prospect. I doubt the UFC wanted Papy Abedi to debut against Thiago Alves, but that's what he requested, and he's a heck of a talent, so they accommodated him. Who knows how he'll bounce back from that beating he took. Similarly, I wouldn't want Houston starting out against someone with Falcao's experience level and ability. But if that's what he wanted I'd potentially bend to that demand so he signs w/ my organization.

Featherweight tournament pairings were announced today. Sandro v Vargas, Mann v Fabiano, Bezerra v Da Silva & Straus v Spoon.

Some good fights there, i'm going with Sandro, Mann, Bezerra & Straus to win.

Sean McCorkle has signed with bellator for season 6. Should be a good test of where he is at.

So overall this should be a good season to say the least. Once again unfortunate I don't have cable.

He's fodder for a HW tourney, nothing more, nothing less. He definitely isn't a contender.

I hate when these ignorant people, like on FiveOuncesofPain, say every UFC reject is going to end up in Bellator and start mowing everyone down in their organization.

Firstly, Bellator is rather selective about which UFC cast-offs they sign long-term. A high majority of the time they needed to have been cut for disciplinary issues or unfairly.

Secondly, even in their heavyweight division, Bellator has at least 3 guys who would be good anywhere; Konrad, Big Monster, and Ivanov. That's not counting Grabowski, Prindle, Madsen (unjust UFC cut), Tony Johnson Jr., etc.; who are solid. McCorkle would be lucky to advance through one of those fighters, let alone 3. Even a Mark Holata level guy would be tough for him. Holata KO'ed Shawn Jordan in Bellator, Jordan was subsequently cut, and since has beaten Lavar Johnson in SF and has an upcoming fight in UFC.

There are plenty of former Bellator fighters who've looked solid in other organizations when given the chance like Masvidal, Herman, Stinson, James, Pineda, Jordan, Wallhead, etc. And outside of Herman, who didn't ever fight at a tourney level, none did all that well in Bellator.

This clown named David Castillo submitted a Bloody Elbow article about how Melvin freaking Guillard, a guy who should be 3-7 (got gift decisions vs. Tibau and Stephens) against current members of the UFC roster, would tool Chandler and Alvarez. That's rich. Unlike Mel, Alvarez beat their one common opponent in Neer who has fared pretty well in his comeback and Chandler is a good wrestler who has subbed the likes of Held and Alvarez, as if he couldn't get it done against Guillard who has lost 8 times by sub in the 1st round alone.

There's a mystique about being a UFC fighter, and that's why I make a killing betting on Bellator. Pellegrino was a favorite against Patricky Pitbull. lol

Well heavyweights unfortunately aren't that common to come by. Personally though I do agree that you would think UFC rejects would mow down Bellator that doesn't happen. Look at all those guys that have gone from the UFC to Bellator, they lost!
