Bellator doesn't care about giving title fights precedence, so why in seven hells is this happening?

    Julia Budd over Dantas vs McDonald? This is outrageous! Budd should be on the prelims!

    Good question. Dantas vs McDonald is a good fight on a card I would otherwise skip.

    Dantas and McDonald couldn't draw a dime between them

    Cro Cop is the dime king

    from what i have read Paramount has large female audience. could it be Bellator trying to attract them by putting wmma on main spot?

    That would be my guess.

    I think they'll see if they can get a spike in ratings with it.

    201 and 202 look shit so far, might be a good opportunity to try a bit of a change and experimentation in promotion on cheaper cards

    Bellator has been terrible lately in basically every way except that tournament lol. We'll see how things go in the next few years but I feel they make mistake after mistake and in general nobody gives a shit about their cards anymore. People got more hyped for them when it was nobodies fighting in tournaments.

    Name recognition over quality:

    Julia Budd has been on a decent card or two and Nogueira is a. If name in MMA.

    It's marketing... not rocket science, forget common sense, t doesn't apply here.

    On what planet does Julia Budd have name recognition?

    Dantas has been a champion and headlined several cards and McDonald is a UFC fighter and former title contender who has also headlined UFC cards. Name recognition goes to the latter.

    I long ago stopped caring about match order on MMA cards.

    It will just upset you if you put to much thought into it.
