Based on early reactions, it certainly seems as if fans and media members are split on the design. Either way, though, it’s an interesting step to take, and it further raises the stakes of these upcoming matchups.

Prior to the acquisition, these promotions were seen as two of the biggest in North America outside of the UFC. Regardless of whether or not you agree with that, nobody can deny the impact this sale has the potential to have.

PFL are the ones who will be overjoyed to have the Bellator roster at their disposal. In equal measure, we’d imagine Bellator will be happy to simply have the lights on.
