    Face it. You can't refute other people's perspectives. You just slap your own down over and over again till it sticks...which is fine. I'm no hater.

    But don't get butthurt and act like I'm some bad guy. I have a very different perspective which you cannot disannul.

    I just follow logic and reason. I knew after talking with him a couple weeks ago he parroted his own views rather than engaged in logical conversations.

    It is what it is.

    Meltzer:
    Bellator will also be running seven or eight shows in 2019 in the U.K., which will be comprised of mostly U.K. fighters, and air on Ch. 5 live in prime time. At this point these shows will not air either on DAZN or Paramount, but Bellator will stream them on their own site in the U.S.


    They will also run other European shows, probably four of them, outside the U.K. as combination kickboxing and MMA events, that will count as four of the 22 events. Those events would air live on DAZN, but be taped delayed for prime time viewing on Paramount. There is also the issue on the West Coast. Paramount doesn’t have a staggered feed, so on the West Coast, Bellator’s North American events air on a three-hour tape delay, to maximize the ratings by having the events on West Coast prime time.


    All of those events will be available live on DAZN.

    copycats? he saves us money for not having to subscribe to meltzers newsletter and tons of time going through it. Have you ever seen one of Dave Meltzers newsletters? it's all prowrestling shit you have to weed through to get anything about mma.

    Just tell Frankie thank you and shut the fuck up.

    Different territories have different deals,some of Europe might have these but might be blocked in the US, NFL & NBA don't have any online rights to give out, so you won't be able to watch it, I think Amazon Prime has NFL rights and the NBA has a game a day that will be available on bleacher report Live as the parent company runs NBA TV. MLB, MLS & NHL will run only one game a week on ESPN + and none of these games are post season or televised.

    @AGEZ909

    Additional Info:

    It is a 3 year deal with a 2 year option.
    Meltzer said the deal is for $33m per (average)
    if that is true than its an incredible financial deal for Bellator

    Dave is usually spot on with Bellator stuff because he is from San Jose & know Coker personally
    He was also friends with the old SF owners

    Didn’t notice that you mentioned me in a post. Have me in mind ;D

    Seriously though, the two year option will be very telling.

    Wishing Bellator well.

    You done a great job ITT my man
    Reminds me of someone on another board ;)


    I think if DAZN succeeds, Bellator will be fine
    DAZN has taken bigger risk elsewhere

    DAZN are investing a shitload, so odds are they have a plan & vision & hopefully it is a solid one.
    They seem more entrenched outside of US than inside though because of the volume of network options in the states.
