    It's good, but not quite 'dynamite.' Also, you should list the names of the lhw tourney fighters. Makes the card look a little better on paper.

    Bumping this up just saw the Bellator weigh in stage they are using. Looks really bad ass. Got to say this is the first event that feels really like a big deal to me.

    The Shamrock/Kimbo and Bonnar/Tito shows sort of felt like they were shit on more as gimmicky than anything. This feels like a big deal for the first time ever to me in Bellator.

    Media seems to care, big weigh ins. It should be fun.

    For a Spike TV card, this is excellent.

    Bellator bringing it with the free MMA.

    It's a HISTORIC event np matter how you look at it. And an amazing card! There seems to be a lot of AKA guys on here with Diagne, and Victor Jones making his pro debut.

    Good card, I don't know the kickboxers but they're in title fights so I assume they'll be good.

    Honestly, I think it looks like crap and does not deserve the "Dynamite" label. I have no clue who those kickboxers are. The most interesting fight on this card to me is Kerri Anne Taylor-Melendez's fight.

    Honestly would rather they ditch the kickboxing and just do mma card.

    Liam/Tito
    LHW finals
    Davis/Newton
    Mo/Vassell
    Daley/Gonzalez in mma instead of kickboxing
    Thomson/Mike B

    How is it gonna work, is card gonna be 4 hours? Are they gonna air prelims on Spike since its basically two cards/orgs so do they give it more time on Spike to air preilms cause if not its gonna be alot of unaired fights nobody sees cause nobody watches prelims on Spike.com.

    WOuld hope for this one show atleast they give it a 6 hour block on Spike to air majority of these fights.

    Hope they kill it in the ratings so they can justify doing bigger shows.

    Not bad, will watch.

    I like the hybrid MMA/Kick-boxing cards, remind me of Japan.

    Now this card needs some HW's, did they use James Thompson after the Houston Alexander debacle?
    That would be a cool freakshow for this one.

    And seriously, why don't they use MVP on this card? Page is their best "homegrown" MMA guy with huge star power, he is already older than Jose Aldo/McGregor and they still feed him a couple lower top 50 guys on unimportant cards instead of using opportunities such as this one, shitty management FTW

    This card is already overbooked to the maximum effect.
    -Bellator Title Fight
    -2 Glory title fights
    -4 Man one night tournament
    -Paul Daley Kickboxing fight
    -Josh Thomson debut
    -Giblerts wife debut


    I do agree with your main premise tho, I want to see MVP asap.
    Put him on the next tentpole Bellator 145 to make it a fully homegrown event!

    Pitbull(c) vs. Strauss 3
    Brooks(c) vs. Held
    Lashley vs. Thompson
    Chandler vs. Caveman
    MVP vs. Jobber
