    Would have liked to see Ward get a bigger name or a better step up in competition but this should be entertaining while it lasts.

    I can read the name Evangelista. My WTF is WTF are they doing throwing him in there with Ward.

    Starting to wonder if Coker legitimately thinks it's 2010

    Make sense to have him on the same show as Benson to build him up. He should be fighting better dudes. But if he's smart he will be in the cage talking shit to whoever wins the main event.

    Ward has the tools to win but hes so inconsistent.

    I expect complete carnage.

    Santos was shot years ago and has little TDD. Ward could easily take him down and pound him out if he wants.

    I bet that Bellator's matchmaker is a japanese freakshow/squash match lover

    They also added Macapa vs Patricio Pitbull. Macapa via SD. Just kidding, I think Patricio works him.

    Can't believe this matchup... I really like Cyborg... Im from a small town and he's the only Pro fighter ive ever met in all my life (he's from the same city as I)...
    Dude was fine as a MT coach, couldn't understand why he unretired... And now he gets a dude at his peak on 4 fight winning streak that comes from a victory againt an ex-undefeated dude that's also at his peak? WTF???

    The event is on earth day... It makes sense to have a human fight a Cyborg.. think about it...

    Cyborg looked decent in his comeback fight, He beat Young, who is about the same level as Wards last few opponents (Hasegawa excepted)


    It's on the same card as Bendo vs. Korsehkov. I guess they want Ward to have an exciting and dominant performance, to help hype Ward vs. Bendo/Koreshkov winner.

    Ward had some problems with Hasegawa so it's maybe not a bad idea to give him an easier fight to get his confidence back up before his title-shot. Brennan was next in line before Bendo was part of the picture.

    They just refuse to give their WW contenders like Daley, Ward, and Page any solid opponents. Or have them fight for the title. lol BELLATOR

    Might be in the minority but I like it. Should be exciting. Cyborg's no scrub.

    It looks to be a fun fight on paper, but what does it do for Ward? I think he should get better opponents at this point in his career. I feel like Bellator is going the boxing route of padding records. Which Ward doesn't need.
