    Pitbull praying that the UFC does cross promotion. The reality is UFC is where the money is at. Chandler went to the UFC and is having a bigger payday than Pitbull has ever had despite KOing him. The UFC would never do that case in point their BW champ lost to Goochie twice. I have no doubt Pitbull would do well if not be champ but in the eyes of the world he will never be that. Moose dominated their WW champ and Bader got two belts in their promotion. I highly doubt Bader is champ in any division of the UFC. You can't take UFC rejects then have them do well and expect your few good guys fight against the UFC champs.

    This is a hilarious thought. The UFC is more likely to buy Belloltor before Hell freezes over and cross promotion happens.

    Not going to happen. It would be a great opportunity for Bellator but UFC has everything to lose.

    UFC putting/ forcing Michael Chandler on every headline and getting paid to be back up... asking Khabib on every interview what he thinks about Chandler.

    UFC making sure that Chandler got well paid, marketed the shit out of him.... as to basically say, this is what happens when you make it here

    Pitbull vs Volk and Nemkov vs Jan would be very intriguing and competitive fights. Any other divisions would be very one sided fights as far as cross over fights go.

    Cross promotion only works when 2 MMA orgs are equal to each other in competitive markets.
    Not when one organization is much greater than the other.

    The UFC gains nothing by cross promoting with Bellator.

    Dana is scared shitless of seeing his champs lose.

    Everyone knows why he will never do it again.
