Well remember that Coker hasn't had as much time and he has built fighters before if you look at what he did in Strikeforce.

When Scott Coker took over Bellator, Conor McGregor was 2-0 in the UFC, last fighting on a Fight Night Prelims. How much time do you want the guy to have before he builds a single home grown star?

And before you mention MVP, he was a highly regarded fighter (fine, mostly by me) who was signed by Bjorn Rebny.

Not to say there isn't one or two guys in there that can't do something good. But with the insanely low fight frequency of most Bellator fighters, the lack of actual competition for the guys they want to push and burying most of the interesting guys on non-televised prelims on non-advertised cards...it doesn't look like they'll have any superstars any time soon.

Hell, just look at the comparison with the Gracies.

You ask anyone anywhere right now which Gracie they know more about, Neiman Gracie or Kron Gracie. Which one is being promoted better by their organisation?

Like I said it isn't perfect but it's possible.

Ahh, so instead of breaking down the points and making a point based on facts and opinion, you've opted to throw out a blanket statement which you refuse to defend. Coolio G.
