    Couldn't make 170, has fights at 205, has no hands at all and gets dominated by grapplers even slightly bigger than him

    They can keep him in bellator imo


    Oh... and USADA

    Bellator > UFC

    Shlemenko > UFC MW champ Bisping

    He's fine where he is.

    He beats Bisping.

    Being a champ in the UFC is about getting the title shot at the right time.

    And if Whittaker, Rockhold, Weidman, Romero, or Jacare are champ?

    Shlemenko's striking is dangerous af and he can strike with any MW in the world.

    If those fighters decide to stand with him (like Whittaker would most likely do), Shlemenko could win.

    Why do you think he could take them? I'm sincerely curious. I've never seen him beat anyone of significance, imo.

    My only point is that I will take Shlemenko (the one I saw versus Mousasi) over Bisping, and I think he can hold his own versus the Top 10 MWs in the UFC.

    Bellator has no depth, but it is beginning to look like their top fighters can be UFC champs or contenders if they were given the right fight at the right time.

    I read it. You just said he could stand with them and win. I don't think he outstrikes Whittaker. Possibly, you can point out something specific that makes him a threat on the feet.

    Yeah based on Bellators pay outs... I am sure he would like the money.
    Did he ever had an offer to "sell his soul"?

    He would never pass USADA. Popped for steroids in Bellator on a night of fight test, then went and kept fighting in M-1 during the suspension.

    On top of that theres way too many wrestlers in the UFC and his grappling is pretty bad. He would get trucked by Weidman, Jacare, Romero, or Rockhold very quickly, being submitted in minutes.

    In Bellator they give him almost exclusively good atyle matchups and let him juice. So he should stay in Bellator.

    He should stay in Bellator, where the competition is a littler tougher
