If Conor signs with Bellator, would Bellator overtake the UFC as the #1 MMA promotion in the world?

    UFC will end up like MySpace.

    How many true stars do they have these days? Two or three and one is returned from many years ago. The owners are slippin.

    Viacom owns Bellator and they have way deeper pockets than WME. If they wanted to commit to a bidding war over Conor they'd stomp Ari and company (who are 5 billion dollars in debt).

    After GSP's PPV dud, only selling like 500k PPV's in the US, I think it's safe to say that Conor runs the game.

    It's rare. Yesterday's card wasn't and most of the time they have it on tape delay. I've seen it on only a week later before.

    Hell no! Not even close!
    The UFC can send over Conor McGregor and Cain Velasquez, and Bellator would still have a shit show production.

    Face it young man, Bellator is an amateur league.

    It'd be a huge boost for Bellator, but no. Big Money Conor only exists with UFC (and Maywether, but that's a once in a lifetime kind of athlete). The promotion, the perception that UFC is the highest level of MMA, all the interactions and fight possibilities you can tease fans with when he's around other fighters - it all comes into play to boost him into stratosphere. Conor is a big deal, but 50% of that is UFC and everything that comes with it. They give him the fuel he can't get on his own or somewhere else.

    Yes I think so, McGregor being there would attract lots of other UFC fighters to move to Bellator
