    I wonder why smaller promotions don't allow this sort of thing more often? It think it would be a great thing if prospects were able to compete in multiple organizations instead of just be hammered down to one. Fighters would get valuable fight experience and for promotions that couldn't find fights for them regularly ,whether because of monetary issues or other reasons, the prospect could find a fight somewhere else for the time being. It gives prospects a chance to gain more money and popularity.

    I like that cause Bellator doesnt have a ton of room on their cards and if he lost his debut and they didnt cut him he might be on the shelf for a while so letting him fight in Japan and make money is cool.

    I hope this isn't an "Iron Nakamura" situation where see him fight once then never again.

    Coker is leaving no rock unturned.. dude is willing to co promote. Anything to get a leg up. Good for him..

    Something tells me these non exclusive deals will change once bellator starts reeally taking off.
