    I’d be down , but it’d feel like a waste having the first cross promotion for a bader DC match up. The only thing I could see worthwhile that bellator could do is get MVP the belt and do a woodley(or usman) mvp showdown. I don’t see moose/ whittaker or dc bader generating extra interest that a regular ufc title shot would, atleast with “casuals” anyhow.

    What ????
    I don't think so and if such a thing would happen it would be in middleweight division BMMA can arguably say they have #1 middleweight. No other promotion can stake that claim (well Dj- now at ONE)

    Bader would be healthy underdog to Daniel .Any combination of mousasi, whitaker (if this guy can even take the further stresses in cage fighting - not knocking his talent) and Romero would result in an opening betting line of 130 or less.
    Any talk of cross promotion (which obviously sounds like b.s) would be mousasi vs. someone..... and I don't see Dana or WME too confident in either match up so thats not happening.

    I dig this fight more than than a Brock Lesnar freakshow fight tbh. Also, diss the "super fight" all you want but so far the poll says 75% are in favor of it.

    But yeah, I also think it's never happening.

    I wouldnt call this floated, its a fantasy that will never happen and nobody from the UFC would consider this. Title is clickbait. Ts needs to be punished for fake headlines

    Actual Headline

    Coach: Ryan Bader can finish Daniel Cormier in champ-champ superfight

    Perhaps when WME buys Bellator and merges some of the fighters (see Pride/WEC/Strikeforce) with the UFC roster, then something like his could happen. But DC is gonna take the money fight next and head home, not wait around for a UFC/Bellator mash-up.

    Bader would have a real chance of winning this fight ad this would never happen anyway. Cormier is getting older could fall off any fight from now and Bader has a new found confidence he has never had before inside the UFC that's improved his fighting style.

    If it's actually true then Scott Coker severely underestimates just how big of a psychopath Dana White is.

    It doesn't even matter if you split the revenue 90/10 with Dana, he will NEVER give your promotion any exposure by using his. Dana don't care about win/win, you losing is the most important thing.

    Not really floated, but I get you need to get your hits.

    It is the lower promotion talking about fighting the champ of the higher promotion, with no response from the higher promotion. So, no news.

    Nobody cared enough to make it happen when Ryan was in the UFC.

    I would like to see it as a fight fan....

    But I don’t think the UFC does it for a few reasons.
    1. As DC is getting up there in age they couldn’t risk him getting beat by Bader and having them look like a second rate org to Bellator.
    2. They aren’t gonna split profits with Bellator. It won’t do as well as they think it will enough to garner split promotion and pay.
