    Bellator going on signings sprees. Looks like Coker will make good on his promise of having more European shows in 2018

    first fw champion Crawford and now lw champion Scope.
    This cooperation with Bellator doesn't seem to end good for BAMMA.
    I don't get why BAMMA is doing shows with them together. I don't think that they are really gaining something when Bellator adds their average european and american prelim fighters on this cards and watering them down on this way.

    Shared costs. It may not be a huge benefit but running a proftable promotion is hard so I'm sure every little bit helps.

    bellator signs plenty of young talent for those who actually want to pay attention.

    Coker wins partnerships.

    Partnering with DREAM brought Strikeforce to the next level. Didn’t do much for DREAM though. They did get a Diaz fight I guess.

    it does appear like that seems to be the case at first glance, but it could definitely make sense for BAMMA to do things like this.

    BAMMA is a smaller org. im sure they arent making much of a profit(if any). going on joint ventures with bellator allows for them to subsidize the cost of their events while holding events and expanding their brand. they are probably banking on coming back to ireland (or wherever they have co promoted with bellator) and see very healthy gates and numbers. if they need to lose a fighter or two, then so be it.

    it's more of an investment.

    no surprise.

    BAMMA and Bellator are bed buddies.

    finally Champions from other promotions, and not UFC rejects.
