    But to them atleast getting the occasional big rating with these old guys keeps them off deaths door. even if it doesnt do anything for the cards after.

    But now it doesnt even look like the old fights are doing what they need them to do. But they have to try which is why they are talking to Chuck and want to do Wandy/Rampage in Brazil.

    They are desperate.

    There was a huge UFC event with two championship fights on that night. To be more precise: Light heavyweight and Heavyweight belts were on the line

    It doesn't help that I wouldn't know when the majority of their cards are on unless I see it here on sherdog.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Coker is a terrible promoter and an even worse match-maker. The guy has absolutely no forethought whatsoever.

    I don't think it helps numbers unless you have a Nielson box in your house.

    Rory is a decent draw but Fedor is not anymore and has not been for years.

    Why not set a season pass on your DVR, check the Bellator web site or a combat sports calendar instead of being so helpless?

    Who the hell wants to watch past due live content? Bellator themselves already spoil their own tape-delayed events.

    Imagine someone having to tell you to DVR a live game for any other sport, just in case you “accidentally” miss it. This is the type of nonsense only mma fans would justify.

    Rich Choi is the matchmaker, they run too many cards for the roster they have, they have main card fights with women who have 1 pro fight between them. Viacom own loads of channels, hell they could put 12 big cards on Paramount and 12 challenger series cards on say MTV2 That way you get to build up the cards, while still feeding new guys decent fights. MTV 2 us expected to draw shit ratings, they are now concentrating on Paramount, MTV, Comedy Channel, BET, Nickelodeon & Nick Jr, so those are the main networks.

    Paramount Network has lost several homes both with cord cutting & being put on a non basic cable package.
