    Once the PPV's start poppin, ther'll be no stoppin.
    Bellator is gonna overrun the UFC. UFC's days as the premiere MMA org are getting numbered. Bellator is on the rise, nothing can stop them.
    The only thing i can see buying time for the UFC is TUF.

    While I disagree completely, you did correctly predict that Tito would destroy Storm so perhaps you have a gift.

    Once Bellator buys out wsof or just takes their fighters, you'll have some merit

    That's exactly what they said to me in 2005 when i told them about UFC overtaking PRIDE, but i wasn't wrong then was I? You watch as the UFC gets crumpled and absorbed by the Bellator behemoth in three years time.

    I seriously doubt that. If UFC drops in popularity its cause MMA dropped in popularity as a whole, including Bellator.

    If Viacom keeps opening their pocket book, anything is possible

    Can we all agree this promotion vs promotion nonsense needs to stop?

    Bellator and UFC both have great fighters, and great fights. Period.

    No need to be diplomatic, bruh.

    Pick a team and let the battles lines be drawn!

    Strike force was literally about 3x better than Bellator and it got bought out.

    Bellator doesn't have anywhere close to 1% of a chance to do that.

    Bellator has a clearly inferior talent pool. And with the exception of Rampage who I think is still a top ten (but not top 5) LHW they are only able to pick up UFC fighters who have been cut due to losses.

    Does Viacom have the money to change that? Maybe, but MMA is still something of a niche sport that is dominated by the UFC, it would take a substantial financial commitment to change that, and I don't think MMA is high enough on the priority list to change that.

    The question for the ts is, why do you think this will suddenly change? There seems to be zero momentum for it.

    You cant make PPV off Tito,Rampage and Alvarez-Chandler everytime. Most of their guys are unknown.
