Does the bantamweight Grand Prix winner get a title shot or something?

Sylvia's not a mainstay in Asia which is probably why he's on the prelims.

This isn't a freakshow promotion trying to gain fame from washed up ex UFC bums. This is a promotion trying to build MMA in South East Asia, Tim Sylvia is nothing over here.

They may not be a freak show promotion but you can't say they haven't used freak shows before. Rolles Gracie vs Bob Sapp and Arlovski vs Sylvia 4 were definitely freak shows. Granted neither of them were main event fights but they aren't above freak shows.

They tried it, it didn't work. I believe they have learnt from their mistakes and we'll be seeing this in the coming year. They are all about developing Asian MMA.

That obviously their main focus but I believe they still want western audiences. As a result they will get fights from outside Asia. If that means they put together freak shows every so often then that's what they'll do to get viewers for their shows.
