    IDK is anyone actually looking forward to see this fight?:rolleyes: Couldn't Coker and Company come up with a better opponent? This is not Bellator moving forward.

    Awesome. Gives him a chance to rebound and get back on track pretty quickly. Really unsure how that show is supposed to work though.

    You have two Glory title fights, Daley/Gonzalez. The three LHW tourney fights, and Tito/Liam.

    Not crazy to think this may be a prelim? Or is this a five hour show.

    It should be a good one! I'm looking forward to it. Bronz is on a 3 fight win streak. Undefeated at LW since dropping down. He's only actually made LW one time though and that was the title fight. Dave burrow is a solid win. If these two were under ufc contract I could see the ufc putting on this exact same fight. Gonna be an entertaining scrap!

    This is what's funny about Bellator, and its hardcore fans.

    "Josh Thomson is legit top 5-10 LW fighter, Bellator have got a real coup by signing him"

    Then he debuts against Mike fucking Bronzoulis. I'm surprised they didn't pay Josh Burns

    This is a lack of respect towards the fans! Not that long ago Josh was complaining with the top ten rankings and now he faces Mike bronzoulis? Lol...bellator has become a joke sadly! They have the power and money to be putting stacked events but they have chosen the wrong path.

    I'm fine with this, Thomson needs an opponent to get him on track. It's not like it's Melvin Guillard vs Brandon fucking Girtz as main event, which is stupid because Melvin isn't on a 3 fight skid..

    To those questioning this. It's a fight that is happening in a month. And not like Bellator has a ton of depth yet. They are top heavy. It's a solid fight for a show happening in a month.

    Its not a fight I care about, its not a good opponent but its a month away and they didnt sign Josh to match him with someone good so he loses 4 in a row.

    They want to get him a quick win and then move on with bigger fights.

    So in that sense its fine.

    The Punk SHOULD be able to sub The Greek in the 1st round. Mike is a BIG LW who relies on his size in the clinch and power strikes on the feet, has OK TDD, but is terrible off his back. I dont think Mike can KO Josh, but I've seen crazier things happen.

    Its the right move, its why I dont think Kos/Daley happens next, that fight isnt going anywhere, get Kos a win.

    Bellator doesnt want these guys with huge losing streaks to keep adding losses on them. They had to sign these guys cause they are names and Bellator isnt good and building stars. But once they have them they need to erase that losing streak, get them a win and then they can move on with bigger name fights and make them feel bigger and promote them properly.

    Definitely a solid fight considering Josh is on a 3 fight skid and the bout is in a month.
