5 Cross-Promotional Events That Will Never Happen
It’s been about two weeks since Bellator shot down the hopes of MMA fans everywhere by not accepting the challenge served by the World Series of Fighting. Yes its true, none of us honestly expected it to happen, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t want it to Bjorn! That tiny part of our brains that still held on to smallest of childish hope was crushed and we were sent back to the real world to watch our normal, singular promoted, MMA events.
We will go on. After all, we will always have UFC [insert number]: so and so vs. that guy, or Bellator [insert number]: this guy we kind of know vs. this guy we do know because he used to fight in the UFC. Life is not so bad; however, with the failed cross-promoted event and the realization that nothing like that will ever actually happen, it is a little boring.
To spice it up a bit, here are 5 cross-over events that will also never happen even though we might really want them to. THANKS A LOT BJORN!
