    did goldie forget he works for bellator? this guy has been promoting UFC fighters every chance he gets tonight and mentioning UFC stats as if they are relevant to bellator

    why don't they tell him to shut up with that stuff?

    Why didn’t the UFC tell him to stop name dropping the NBA when he called Travis Lutters BJJ Jordan-esque?

    Bellator...Strikeforce...EliteXC. etc have always purposely name dropped the UFC or UFC fighters to make their viewers feel they are on the same level of competition...or close. To legitimize their organization.

    I've yet to see a bellator show where they didn't in some reference the UFC multiple times

    They want to blur the line between them and the UFC as much as possible imo while the UFC look to do the opposite

    i see yoou all but the way goldie talks it's like he just makes the UFC fighters sound way better talking about jon jones being a master of reach and GSP landing the most strikes ever etc

    UFC is the only promotion that won't talk about other organizations, because they don't want you to know other promotions exist. They want you to think UFC is the sport. Other promotions have no problem talking about fighters experiences and accolades elsewhere.

    This is where MMA fans shows their roots as smart mark pro wrestling fans. As if mentioning UFC is breaking kayfabe and they’re trying to fool fans into thinking that UFC happens to promote the same sport and at one time or the other the same fighters. As if the majority of the fighters in the main card didn’t have extensive and extremely notable careers in the UFC.

    Just because UFC wants to monopolize and pretend that nobody else exists, doesn’t mean others should in what is supposed to be a legit sport. You don’t think Bellator would look kinda silly pretending the UFC doesn’t exist? That’s a luxury only afforded to behemoth orgs. Razor Ramon doesn’t become Scott Hall if he moves from UFC to Bellator. It’s the same universe and Bellator figures there is no use playing stupid like the UFC does when Eddie Alvarez comes in making top dollar And one fight away from a title shot but they pretend that the reason he makes top dollar and is one fight away from a title fight doesn’t exist...or Ben Askren for that matter.

    Besides, if UFC mentioned Bellator they would probably have to mention their main event winner tonight Jack Hermansson was a two and out scrub in Bellator. A non-hacker but improved via UFC glove
