    We just know only

    Douglas Lima vs Andrey Koreshkov

    Which other fights would you like to see?

    Mine:

    Rory MacDonald vs Lorenz Larkin
    Michael Page vs Paul Daley
    Jon Fitch vs Neiman Gracie

    reserve bout: Ed Ruth vs Yaroslav Amosov

    The unknown fighters: Amosov, Ruth and Gracie have very nice records.

    All good potential matches.

    I fucking love Scott Coker as a promoter.

    I thought they already announced all of those matches (except Rory vs Larkin, but they are the only announced participants left).

    Except I think Fitch vs Gracie and Ruth vs Amosov are ‘play-in fights’ (basically tournament qualifying bouts).

    Personally I would have made it:

    Rory [BYE]
    Fitch vs Larkin
    MVP vs Daley
    Koreshkov vs Lima III
    Gracie vs Amosov (reserve bout)

    Ed Ruth would be built up slowly for the duration of the tournament and be ready to challenge the winner.

    How close is Bellator to surpassing the UFC?

    All I know is MVP vs Daley absolutely HAVE to be in the first round.

    MVP should have fought Koreshov or Lima to get his ass finally exposed, I would love also to see Fitch vs McDonald

    With it being a 10 deep field it's likely that two fighters will have their opponents come from the winner of the "play-in" bouts that Coker alluded to.

    My guess is that with Lima/Koreshkov already being announced and Daley/MVP being the obvious fight, the opponents for Larkin and MacDonald are TBD and will come from the already announced bouts of Fitch/Gracie and Ruth/Amosov.

    I would say do MacDonald/Fitch-Gracie winner and Larkin/Ruth-Amosov winner.

    It's filled with killers. Really amazing tourney and I think they will have multiple fights per card.
