    Maybe those guys don't want to sign a long term deal. I think especially with Campbell, he's a Serra/Longo guy and they probably think they can get him into the UFC with a few decent wins (he's fighting this weekend on CFFC btw).

    lol well lets face it there wasn't going to be much competition for his signature.

    Just on cheer popularity I think there would be some interest, tbh. Apparently, the Irish are quiet fond of him.

    To be fair he gave an impassioned plea for a contract in his post fight interview. I can see guys who have already made some money, Soldic or Vartanyan types holding out for a UFC contract but Charlie Campbell is a young fighter who wants to pay his bills fighting.



    Doesn't strike me as a guy who doesn't want to fight in Bellator. Personally of the young Longo lightweights I'm more partial to Justin Montalvo but both guys have talent.

    Great re signing. Of all of Bellator's prospects I think Franklin might be the best in context. Dude has phenomenal potential relative to his weight class. Heavyweights that move like him that are built like a true heavyweight without fat are rare. Very rare. I hope he gets a veteran next and is in the title picture soon. If he's Bellator heavyweight champ before he has 10 fights I won't be surprised. You heard it here first.

    Hits like a truck and in his last bout, he blew out his opponents knee on the first oblique kick. I think he could be the Bellator Ngannou

    Good for depth, I guess. Georgi is not a bad fighter but has become the perpetual gate keeper.

    He's gotten pretty boring though. I can't remember the last fight of his I enjoyed if you discount AJ KOing him.

    Arm triangling Crosbie was pretty fun. But aside from that, yes he has become very a bit boring. I was almost falling asleep during the Bryce Logan and Myles Jury fights.

    This dude can't defend a takedown if his life depended on it but his striking is good.

    He's reasonable.
