    Why wouldn't a fighter be able to choose what fights he wants to sign? Are you implying promoters should be able to force fighters to sign contracts?

    From a promoter's perspective it makes a lot of sense for Mousasi to fight Lima, it will sell more than Mousasi vs any MW in Bellator and Mousasi has a high paying contract.

    It was miss informed at first


    Born and raised in Connecticut, Newell (16-3 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) will get another home matchup when he takes on Zach Zane at Bellator 241. The promotion announced the booking in a tweet Thursday

    So this will be the same night as UFC 250 with the rumored headliner being Cejudo vs Aldo. Also includes the return of Werdum.

    I have a slightly hopeful feeling they might do Silva and Shogun on that card. We'll see.

    Not like you can't watch them both anyway.

    Nemkov might be the best of Fedor's pupils. Will be rooting for him!

    That's why this would have been a perfect time for a Bellator Middleweight Tournament. It would have given those Bellator Middleweight fighters much more exposure and Bellator may have discovered a new middleweight star from that tournament. Bellator even could have put in a bid to sign PFL Middleweight Tournament winner Louis Taylor and bring back Chris Honeycutt for a tournament.

    55 year old Werdum returning and 5'0 Cejudo fighting washed up Aldo is far less interesting than both of these fights in my view.

    I expect the UFC to add at least another couple solid scraps.

    Great fight.
    Rooting for Nemkov.
    Super cool humble guy, and an absolute beast.
    The first time I saw him, was at the Sambo World Championship in 2014. At the weigh in. He's quite a specimen (no homo).
    One of the guys from my team even commented "when I grow up, I want to grow up like that". Dude's got some rurik genes.

    Nice card!

    Hoping Nemkov knocks Bader out cold, but regardless this is a top tier LHW matchup.

    Hopefully Bader defends the HW belt next against Minakov.
