    Glad the UFC resigned McCrory. He's right about Bellator not building talent as well, look at their MW, HW, BW, and to an extent WW divisions, they're ghost towns. I really miss the Bjorn era because at least he signed talented prospects. All Coker cares about are ratings and freakshow fights.

    I was thinking that Viacom have more money than Zuffa, and that fighters in Bellator are earning a lot of money from sponsors.

    ^Over the next few years, I think we're going to see some fighters switch between both promotions.

    They both definitely have their flaws.

    That was right the fuck outta TNA Wrestling. TNA has cheesier storylines now as opposed to the WWE which is slightly less cheesy.

    But yeah, that pulling off one mask to reveal another one underneath then pulling that one off was pretty sad. Would have been funny to see them go at it though, throwing chair shots, throwing the state officials over the top of the cage and doing a 450 splash from the top of the lights. Shit would have been EPIC.

    :cool:

    He says Bellator didn't give him enough money, but also says he doesn't know half the fighters in Bellator. Guess, what, he's in that 50%...

    It's a shame he and Ben Saunders aren't in the same weight class. A fight between those two would be nuts. Glad he's back in the UFC, either way.

    Makes a lot of sense. A guy like McCrory is better off fighting in the UFC with the Reebok deal than Bellator with independent sponsors. The opportunity to get bonus money and become a contender is better than the shit Bellator pays and he's not going to get any lucrative sponsor deals due to his look/charismatic shortcomings.

    He always had a cult like following b/c of his nerdy looks. Plus his nickname is one of THE best ones out there.....The Barn Cat! lol - awesome.

    He's also put on a fair amount of weight/muscle. Does anyone know if he'll stay at MW coming to the UFC or if he'll cut back down to WW? To answer the previous posters question. He fought at WW in the UFC and returned to fight in Bellator at MW. I assume he'll stay at MW, though both MW and WW are brutal with competition right now.

    Why would you think that? Bellator gets poor ratings compared to UFC and their fighters barely fight. No sponsor is going to pay big money for a random Bellator fighter.
