    I hope Bellator President Scott Coker is reading this thread because the way he conducts a Grand Prix Tournament is different on what we used to,

    And it is giving some massive confusion (especially the Welterweight Grand Prix).

    [​IMG]
    1st Event - 8 Man GP
    2nd Event - Semi-Final GP
    3rd Event - Final GP

    All the GP Tournament can be finish in 3 events in 1 year,

    And yet look at how stupid and confusing the Bellator Grand Prix.

    I hope they bring the original Bellator Tournament format on their next Grand Prix.

    This is how a tournament should be done.

    1st Event - 8 Man GP
    2nd Event - Semi-Final GP
    3rd Event - Final GP

    I don't think Coker needs to read this thread.
    Of course he knows that format is an option.
    But he is an EMPLOYEE of Viacom whom are both content providers & content distributors.
    They make the big calls

    I know, but for crying out loud I can't believe how they ruined the original tournament format.

    That is fair
    I felt the same way, but its not about tradition, its aboput spreading out the big names/fights

    Look at the MSG PPV they did
    they put a shitload of big names on one cards & lost millions bc the PPV bombed
    That had to tie Cokers hands

    I hope someone can send this to Scott Scoker (maybe Sherdog can).
