    "Ten of the promotion’s best at 170 pounds will be featured in the bracket, including current champion Rory MacDonald; former champions Douglas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov; undefeated welterweights Michael Page, Neiman Gracie, Ed Ruth, and Yaroslav Amosov; and former UFC standouts Lorenz Larkin and Jon Fitch."

    First fight will be Lima vs Koreshov at Bellator 205. The 10th participant has yet to be named.

    Will be interesting to see how far MVP gets. Also sorry if this is old news i just saw it

    How are the brackets going to work with 10 people? After those fights you'll have an odd number left and someone without a fight?

    Am I just being dumb here?

    Pretty awesome. Surprised they are throwing MVP in there though.

    And there should be one forum for UFC and Bellator discussion. Bit stupid having separate subforums.

    It's a stupid sherdog thing, imo Bellator/UFC should use the same forum tbh

    Probably Paul Daley. He should fight MVP in the first round, but I doubt that's the plan.
