    I'd be embarrassed as fuck going from the ufc, off of a win streak, and joining the joke that bellator clearly is after a night like this. Money be damned, it's nice but it's not everything.

    No he's probably laughing his ass off at this shit. He gets paid no matter what.

    He can only help. I think the next few Bellator events up to his own fight are a lot more serious and hopefully will be more eventful. But he's paid, he'll be alright.

    The really sad fact of the matter is that Bellator will probably have better ratings with a Kimbo fight than a Benson fight...

    PRIDE had it's fair share of freak fights. UFC had this:

    and UFC has this:

    They are all embarrassing to some extent. Bellator pays him the most.

    Out of hundreds of fights, you can cherry pick a few examples like that from the UFC. However, freak shows are the modus operandi for Bellator.

    Don't see why he would care.

    Hes getting a light snack for the WW title in overrated Andrey plus hes raking in a few hundred thousand a fight + his sponsor money.

    Why would he really give a shit? Its just a shit card. He will make bank regardless.

    Nope I doubt it... He's still laughing his way all the way to the bank!!
    I bet he was on the phone with Coker and it went something like this...

    And knows he easily can be champion in Bellator for a LONGGG time.

    he's probably happy since he knows bellator would do anything to keep legitimate talent which means $$$$$$

    it's all about money now. no one can talk trash about his legacy since he won the WEC and UFC belts and defended each of them multiple times.

    Must suck knowing he'd play second fiddle to whatever fossil they dig up for a main event if he's on the same show.

    He sure as fuck should, and I was applauding him for it before. Freakshows are great and all, lets be real that's what separated Pride from UFC (that and yellow cards). But if Bellator's stalk didn't take a metric fuckton loss after tonight, I don't even know. I mean fuck sans the Newton fight the rest of the card was solid, but nothing will eclipse tonight's embarrassment main events.

    Money be damned? Money is everything. He's not going to be UFC champion any more, so why not get paid? The bigger jokes the other guys in Bellator are the easier the money will be for him, he's going to laugh to the banks now.

    Yeah, but Bellator consistently puts on freak show fights as their main and co-main events, rather than a bit of a filler like Pride or the UFC.

    I don't think he is going to regret having his bank account lined with that Bellator money, no.
