    I mean I'll believe this fight is actually going to happen once they're in the cage together, but we'll see.

    Not to toot my own horn but i sort of predicted this, although I thought it would go down in September/October. I fully expect Queally vs Patricky II, too. Also, im sure there will be a separate England event with MVP vs Lima, Larkin, or Jackson.

    Im actually impressed they are going forward with this IN Ireland AND they announced it way in advance. Have they gotten tod Myles Jury, yet? Could this be the end of an era? Im actually afraid we wont be seeing much of Gareth A. Davies, anymore...

    Glad to hear they're going back to Ireland. Now instead of filling it out with a bunch of Irish filler put the Irish/European guys left on your roster in meaningful fights.

    Mix/Gallagher
    Bak/Queally
    Kavanagh/McCourt in a winner gets fed to Cyborg fight

    Etc. You get the idea. Also any Russians with visa issues who have trouble getting into the US. Minakov/Vassel maybe?

    I don't know if they'd find it much easier getting to fight in Ireland tbh.

    Oh no? I thought since it was within Europe it would be. You tell me though, I'm not especially informed on the subject.

    Russia isn't in the EU that's all. It'd be straightforward for any fighters who are from EU countries though.

    Gonna be a nice little run to end the year for Bellator with shows in Ireland and Russia. Hopefully we’ll get one in England or maybe even somewhere else in the UK. Nice to see things opening back up.

    Yeah absolutely. I more meant stragglers who weren't on the Moscow card for whatever reason. I should have specified. I'm still waking up lol.

    We need to see if Coker is alive. They are announcing events and fights ahead off time, I'm afraid he is dead in his office

    Not only that, but Liz Carmouche was not immediately announced as the next title contender and they probably released Myles Jury...

    This is the card that Johnny Eblen wanted to get on in a fight vs. Charlie Ward haha. If he fought Edwards or Van Steenis on this card that would also make sense.

    Long would make sense for Joey Davis, but I'm really hoping he fights earlier than that. Maybe a bit steep for Crutchmer, but hey, maybe that's the kind of steep that he needs to spice things up and get his stock back up. Hughes would be a great way to bring Nick Browne into the promotion. Or if they haven't found anything for Shabliy by then. Fisher could be an opponent for Pico or Justin Gonzales.

    I hope they don't do Ward/Eblen. Ward is a bum and should be fighting someone like Fabio Aguiar or Khalid Murtazaliev so they can take his spot in the rankings. Eblen/Ward is a squash. I want Tokov/Eblen for the next title shot in Moscow.

    I doubt they book all the Irish guys to lose, that's not usually the way they do it.

    Poor Charlie Ward LMAO everyone wants a piece of him to get into the rankings. I like Gavin Hughes vs Nick Brown, that would be solid. Im afraid Andrew Fisher will be thrown in there vs Saul Rogers or something like that. Also, hopefully we see Oliver Enkamp again.

    Tokov might be too steep of a step up for Eblen but there isnt anywhere else to go for him.
