Absolute truth. That's one thing that really scares me about Zuffa owning Strikeforce. They have COMPLETE control over the fighters. If the fighters don't play their game there is nowhere else for them to go.

Wrong. Bellator is going to be pretty big soon.



IMO they're 6-8 "big" names away from being a huge promotion, and many people already believed they were better and bigger than Strikeforce.

Dana should offer to pee in Josh's mouth for a shot at the UFC

Who cares about the steroid stuff of the past. Give him another shot! The UFC needs him as a fighter more than they need to ban him.

Those people wouldn't know what the **** they were talking about.

Bellator was barely making money and looked to have a toe in the grave at one point 4-5 months ago. This season will be critical for them.

SF was at least, if not growing that rapidly, established, on a big TV channel and was making money.

thats true, but now bellator got a sweet deal with mtv2! and at the end of the day fighters can make or break a org, if hendo, barnett, overreem, and other big names think the UFC is too terrible for them and they went to bellator, bellator would have a huge chance at becoming a really strong promotion

there will always be other promotions in MMA, MMA really resembles wrestling in a lot of ways, and many great fighters will come through smaller shows still, UFC will never have a hold of every org and every fighter

MFC is also doing pretty well

Well to answer your question---Almost Everybody! If it was just a one time thing people can overlook it! This man was busted three times. He's a repeat offender and will most likely do it again in the future.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
