    How does Dana allow Chael to be a broadcast partner while actively fighting in Bellator?

    On the business side of it. I just gives Bellator more views.

    I dont get it.

    Chael is good business. You do business with good business.

    Meh..... hes funny and well spoken. But he isnt well known. In this situation people will look him up to find out who he is. Bam Bellator gets more views.

    If I recall, the UFC brass loves Chael. He would've been on the broadcast team a while ago but Fox wouldn't have it (the PED bust). He also has great reviews and is doing well on ESPN, and his Youtube channel is taking off. He's a very popular dude and he knows his shit.

    He’s entertaining and can hold a casual’s attention as well without boring them or losing them in translation being too overly technical.

    What are you talking about. Anyone that would give enough of a shit to google an announcer already knows who he is

    In mma circles your right.

    For the casual your dead ass wrong.

    He isn’t well known? I don’t agree with that statement. Fought for multiple titles, numerous big names, feature bouts in multiple orgs, commenter on multiple networks... wtf do you view as “well-known” as it pertains to MMA? For cripes sakes the entire nation of Brasil still wants to extradite him...

    ESPN pays both UFC and Chael's bills.

    Dana has no say in this

    I don't know, my dude. I'm going to have to disagree. He's on ESPN a shit ton, always circulating in social media through huge networks, and his Youtube channel seems very casual. Check out the comments on most of his vids. They're not really what I'd call diehard. Seems like your average peeps that like MMA and follow it through people like Chael, which is what his purpose is really.

    I think he's quite popular all around and if not, he's good for the casual audience so he will be as time goes on; especially with the UFC being on ESPN now.

    The UFC don't have the same influence over ESPN that they did at Fox, otherwise Ariel wouldn't have got the job at ESPN at all.

    So if ESPN want Chael on the broadcast they will get it.

    Maybe I should have said isnt well know to the casual. Which is exactly who would look him up.

    I will take note of these factors you speak of. I will do some research and come back to this when im done. Lol

    But I maintain my stance that he is not so popular it is worth giving your competition free fans.
