Nice! War Barn Cat!
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.
"My personal opinion is that they didn't know how to use me," McCrory said. "I thought they would say,
^Over the next few years, I think we're going to see some fighters switch between both promotions.
They both definitely have their flaws.
Maybe Kimbo vs Royce next lol
More so I cant stand Belletors wwe like production, good for laugh though. They whole tito/bonnar thing with the guy coming out in the mask, what a joke
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.
Wait, so you mean to tell me this whole get your own sponsors and Viacom money thing isn't all that great unless you're already a huge name? Wow, who woulda thunk it?
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.
interesting why bellator wouldnt care for a guy like him
I remember him from back in the day, really slick ground game.
Is he still at WW?
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.
Cheers man, he was too skinny for WW i think.
interesting final statement. aldo immediately came to mind. they arent all losers bud.
I've been waiting for this day.
bu but wait a minute i tjough that if you could pick you own sponsors it means an instant +$100k CAUSE TIM KENNEDY SAID SO ???/
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.
Separate names with a comma.
