Bellator Champ Newton: ‘Bellator Will Surpass The UFC’

“I just see Bellator definitely surpassing UFC. It’s already happening. [The UFC] is not very personable with the fighters.

“I’ve had the same opinion on [TRT], and the same stance on it since the first time I asked the question. I just never felt that the controls were tight enough to be able to allow it to occur. When guys use it it’s an unfair advantage. If you’re going to equalize the playing field,...

Rampage: ‘I signed with Bellator to beat the sh** out of King Mo’

“I knew I was never going to fight [Lawal] in any of the other organizations I was with, because I knew he wasn’t going to come. I think I can be 100-percent honest with you when I say that half the reason I signed with Bellator was because I was signing with Viacom — not...

“Honestly, he just can’t help himself. Unfortunately, we have a very insecure, bald man who uses TRT as the president of the UFC. When he sees a dude like me, who is 28 and all I do is rip tubes and kick ass, maybe some part of him doesn’t like me. I don’t know why,...
