    I'm sure your mind was made up before the show.

    Overall, it was a solid card with the flaws being the gaps between fights and too many promos...at the same time, i give them credit for putting so much effort in the hype packages.

    Terrible pacing of the card, the main event didn't deliver and the judging was awful in the only other fight anyone cared about.

    If the card is a total bomb and this is it for them, then as a fledgling promotion eh, they did better than Bodog but not as good as Affliction.

    Seriously, and I thought the Affliction ppvs had production issues. At least they put on good fights.

    They went over the time limit, that pisses the PPV people off. They have to do another PPV though or they breach Alvarez's contract. They are fucked.

    sure, the brooks fight was amazing, back and foward action and it showed the flaws in chandler's game. the guy should fight in FW

    very bad. Bellator doesn't have the names to run PPV's.

    Card wasn't terrible, wasn't great. It had it's entertaining moments for sure, upsets, some good action on occasion, Page/Mo was disappointing but the decision aftermath was pretty comical... worst part was the downtime, too much filler, take a page from UFC and show a short prelim fight and get to the next one asap.

    It was a good card, I was way more interested in it than 99% of ufc cards in the last couple of years. At least every fight had a name guy in it. First Bellator card I ever watched completely.

    I hope not. UFC needs more competition and this is a good start.
