    What are some fighters you miss from the Bjorn era that you would like too see in Bellator now.

    Guys like

    Toby Imada
    Akop Stepanyan
    Mike Richman
    Rene Nazare
    Thiago Michel Silva
    Alexander Sarnavskiy
    Fabricio Guerreiro
    Shahbulat Shamhalaev
    Rich Hale
    Thiago Santos

    Who was that guy that got leg kicked to hell by Lima? The Russian?

    Anyways. Given where Bellator is now. What are some Bjorn era fighters you wish were back into the mix in Bellators current state

    Dan Cramer, Doug Marshall, and Christian M'Pumbu for some reason.

    Fuck it, I miss Hector Lombard in Bellator too. I hope Coker resigns him.

    I would say Emanuel Newton but he was somewhat prominent in the Coker era.

    I strongly prefer Coker-era Bellator.

    Stepanyan and Sarnavskiy are fighting for ACB so I don't really miss them because I can watch them. Also they are losing and winning fights, it's not like they are killing everybody to think "oh they should be facing better competition".
    Same with Frodo fighting for Akhmat

    A lot of the other guys are somewhat retired

    What about Julio Cesar Neves? He lost to Parsons and was cut, he is still beating cans in Brazil, 34-1 and only 23

    Holy shit Batman, you actually remember these guys or did you make love to fight finder last night to make this thread?

    I think two guys on the list even ring a bell in my head.
