    DEFINITIONS

    By seniors, both fighters must be 40 or over (excludes Fedor Emelianenko vs. Randy Couture).

    By freakshow, one of the two fighters must have a significant disadvantage in skill, age, weight, or some other discrepancy between them and the other fighter.

    I think you forgot to mention that it also needs "mass appeal" otherwise bellator won't do it

    It's super hard to sell someone like Severn since fans have no idea who he is


    Freakshow -

    Tito vs Kimbo is the freakshow money fight right now I think as Tito is way ahead in skill level and Kimbo would be a huge underdog. This would be the biggest money maker that Bellator could put on right now

    Masters -

    Frank vs Gracie THE NUTSHOT REVENGE is the money seniors fight to make

    That has a great story coming into it mainly the Shamrock-Gracie rivarly and it builds up nicely on the recent fight.

    Besides Frank is closer to Gracie's natural weight so it would be more fair

    Frank would take it to upstage his brother and Gracie needs money so I dont see why they would not do it

    Kimbo vs. Herschel Walker is going to happen

    It's going to be awful and embarrassing, but it's going to happen

    After last night's loss, I think Joe Riggs vs sakuraba might actually be a fair fight

    Kimbo vs Royce would be the next fight I could see them doing but I think Kimbo vs Walker is the fight to make.

    Obviously Kimbo vs Rampage is the biggest ratings fight but after what we saw from Kimbo if they actually booked the page fight they should go out of business. I would hope no commission would sanction it.

    But the ratings on that fight would be through the roof.

    So Kimbo vs Royce or Hershel Walker should be next.

    Kimbo is a heavyweight. No one is going to sanction that.

    Bas would kill him. Royce was the only fight left for Ken.

    Kimbo vs Royce, then if Kimbo beats Royce they can end the Kimbo freak show by feeding him to a potential prospect or something like Wren or something and boost a new guys stock up, giving him some big exposure. I think Kimbo could do a LOT better than that, easily the worst performance of his career. He looked better in his losses to Mitrione & Roy then he did against DaDa.
