    If you were Scott Coker what would you do to change or add to boost ratings? Do you think they could ever compete with the UFC? Should they stick with Spike? Should they attempt a merger? Should they attempt PPV again? Thoughts.....

    A fight like Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock in 2015 = ratings.

    PPV is a bad idea. Fighters need TV to get the exposure.

    Yeah, Bellator does not have the fighters that can generate enough revenue to justify a PPV. However, a good enough Bellator card could possibly do well on CBS for greater exposure.

    Coker just needs to keep signing free agents that defect from the UFC or WSOF.

    dude is doing everything right; its not pretty, but he is doing what he has to. his ratings are up, and he also mentioned how gates are up.. his operation is going to be ugly and take some time but he can get it done. give reebok more time to set in, as well as give fighter time to fight out their contracts and we will see jumps from org to org..

    we all know keneddy wants out BAD.. coker could def. use fighters like this.. use his military past to promote him a bit, and we might have the next middleweight champ at bellator.. bendo might test the waters when his contract is up as well.

    What are the rules regarding Cruiser weight and Super Heavyweight from the AC's. Get these going and you can have names defect who would be getting to fight in a more comfortable weight and do so for cheaper rates.

    Get the W-Feather n Fly going. Other divisions to look into W-Atom, Men's Straw.

    I hope both of y'all are joking. The last thing Bellator needs is MORE divisions. Build up what you already have first!

    I love the Dynamite show with the kickboxing bouts and and the one night LHW tournament. Coker should keep signing American, Canadian, Brazilian and Russian prospects plus veteran fighters of note and make the most interesting cards possible.

    Depends, they are packing to do more shows. Also if they dumped a week division it could be adavantageous.
