Bellator’s PPV Success Dependent On Former UFC, Strikeforce Stars

Just like that, the weight of Bellator MMA’s future on pay-per-view was placed squarely on the shoulders of two fighters who made their name in other promotions. Originally, the promotion wanted to focus Saturday’s card on the conclusion of the trilogy between lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler. That, though, was thrown by the...

Jon Jones Breaks Multiple UFC Records In UFC 172 Bout

It’s hard to argue against Jon Jones’ claim as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Even I can admit to being turned, seemingly overnight, into a ‘Bones’ fan and advocate. He’s pretty good guys. More impressive than his dominant title reign, is how he continues to break records, defy odds, and cement himself as...

Is Bellator Really Just A Poor Man’s UFC?

By Evan Stoumbelis In recent months, there has been more and more talk of Bellator competing with the UFC in terms of ratings as well as star power, and with Bellator getting ready to launch its inaugural Pay-Per View on May 17th, it’s only fair that we ask the question: Is Bellator a knockoff of...

What Happens To Jake Shields Now?

Former title-contender Jake Shields was released by the UFC on Monday, putting an end to a four-year stint with the promotion that spanned eight fights. Shields, an ex-Strikeforce and EliteXC champion, shouldn’t have much trouble landing work with another MMA promotion, and maybe it’s for the better. Sure, competing in the UFC – at least...

Cyborg: ‘Dana White No Longer Has Excuses’

Former Strikeforce champion and current Invicta FC champ, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino (formerly Santos), is one of MMA’s most feared athletes. Her reign of dominance has, so far, spanned the course of nine-straight-years. Let me repeat that. She hasn’t lost in nine-years!!.

Retired Forrest Griffin Says Body So Beat Up He Can No Longer Dunk

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Forrest Griffin, is six-foot, three-inches tall. He’s not a short man my any stretch of the imagination. Which is why it’s somewhat troubling to hear, that at just 34 years-old, he’s struggling so hard with a broken down body, that a simple athletic feat of dunking a basketball is now impossible...

Daniel Cormier Needs To Fight Ryan Bader If He Wants A Title Shot

If Daniel Cormier wants his shot at the UFC light heavyweight title, he needs to go through Ryan Bader. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying Bader is the No. 1 contender – or even a top contender in the division at the moment. Instead, it would appear that the former Ultimate Fighter winner...

Dana White is done hearing about Cyborg. With all of the recent back and forth between him, former Strikeforce women’s featherweight champion, Cristiane Justino, and UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, it’s actually been a little confusing keeping up with what may or may not be happening. However, Dana put the record straight in a...

World Series of Fighting matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz discussed an idea last week about a crossover event with Bellator MMA featuring 10 fighters from each promotion facing off in a pay-per-view event.
