    As you all know now Patricky pitbull is out of the scheduled lw tourney final bout at BellatorMMA 120 and Held is in the process of getting a new opponent. With the summer series coming up and needing bouts this automatically can headline a card or be an excellent co main. Assuming Held fights and wins his next fight there's even more momentum going into the final. Patricky said he would be ready to fight in July. So a card with korshekov vs McDonough and Held vs pitbull as co main automatically is worth the watch no matter the other bouts that will likely be some great tourney fights.

    I agree. It was dumb that a tournament final was on a prelim.

    Speaking of Held is Dave jansen the most fucked over fighter in Bellator? Alvarez title shot 1st, then the rematch, now Will Brooks get the title shot. And I guarantee Winner of Held vs Pitbull gets a shot at the winner of Brooks/Chandler before Jansen does.

    I mean it'll make Patricky and Helds wait for a title shot less long at least.

    But Jesus Christ what the fuck does Jansen even do at this point? He has to wait for Alvarez to defend against Chandler or Brooks now.

    Hell I have no idea how it works but I assume his contract might even expire before he ever gets a title shot. If so I really hope he bails and the UFC signs him.

    Alvarez will get the winner, then Jansen, then Held/Pitbull winner.

    They had to do the trilogy, and they only get Eddie for two fights, how long can they make him wait? I don't know but considering the situation when the contract was signed there is probably a stipulation about how long they can have Eddie sit for.

    Sucks for Jansen but the Chandler-Eddie trilogy is more important.

    I just haven't heard news on him. The wait has been serious . It was like Bellator 99 right? Musta been a bad tear. He had a good shot at winning then idk now. I hope he gets back soon but who knows. That said you're missing the point of the thread

    Helds not ready for Pitbull. Bad matchup for him. The longer he can prepare, the better.

    Because it's not like they would've been tucked away on a corner of the internet. It would've been free on Spike. More people would've tuned in to watch it live on Spike than would've tuned in if it was on the PPV. It's really weird how dense some of you people are. You act like just because it isn't on the PPV it's somehow a diss. More people would watch that fight on free TV than they would if they had to pay for it.
