    This is a great signing, there are a ton of great match ups for Musayev. He should be thrown into immediate contention.

    Actually looking at how I've got him ranked I have him at #26 in the world, which would also make him the best LW in Bellator immediately, so lets upgrade that to a great signing. Probably the best they've made in some time.

    Well he has a decisive win over the current champion, so there's no excuse not to put him straight in really.

    If he hadnt lost his last one, I would agree but Primus or even Satoshi make more sense. I would love to see Musayev ve Shabliy.

    IDK about the best LW in Bellator but he is a tremendous signing. I would put Primus and Goiti ahead of him.

    Knowing Bellator they'll book Tofiq Vs Nick Newell and Shabliy Vs Manny Muro.

    I got Primus up there.

    1. Tofiq
    2. Primus
    3. Patricky
    4. Outlaw
    5. Shab
    6. Islam
    7. Goiti

    Imo

    I fucking hate Outlaw, but I can't deny that he's hard to beat.

    EDIT - Forgot Islam who I also hate but is also effective.

    Well, this is still Bellator so dont be surprised to see Musayev vs Seixas.

    Lets just hope they fight each other and not some random dude. Goiti vs Outlaw could actually be good, btw.

    It could be, but it could also be incredibly annoying if Outlaw's positional control ends up trumping Goiti's more exciting BJJ and he just clings onto his back like he does with everyone else.

    UFC is beyond dumb for letting Musaev go to Bellator. What a great signing. UFC is an embarrassment. Hope he's getting paid.

    Great signing
    I wonder if others top foreigners of RIZIN are gonna leave? The restrictions hit some of them
    Musayev was asking for a fight in quite some time

    I think from their point of view he's just another no name guy from the Russian/Asian region that wouldn't stand out for them. He's a much bigger signing for Bellator than he is a loss to the UFC.

    Isnt Fiziev also from Azerbaijan? Maybe having both of them could open some doors for them over there.

    Fiziev has a Russian mother and Azeri father, born in Kazakhstan, but grew up in Kyrgyzstan. He is Mr. Soviet

    I don't think they're really interested in going to Azerbaijan tbh.
