    It looks like Bellator Lightweight Champion Will Brooks is starting to get a little frustrated over not having a scheduled fight. Bellator has a history of putting healthy champions on the shelf for no reason.Will Brooks is one of Bellator's top young fighters and I would like to see him fight again soon. What are your thoughts?

    Bellator wanted him to headline Bellator 141 vs. Marcin Held for the title. Unfortunately Held declined because he got married last month and did not have time for a training camp. Bellator officials now want to schedule the fight for either the October show, Bellator 143, or wait and put Brooks onto the December tentpole as the co-main event.

    Marvin held is legit. That's a great fight. Guillard headlining a show makes Bellator 155 look pretty sad. Should have at least been Guillard v sarnavski or something that would have been really fun. Honestly, I don't even remember who he's fighting. I barely care.

    I love this guy he needs to sign to the UFC at least then he will be given competition. I think he could hang in the top 5.

    How many fights does he have left in his contract?

    He should go to the UFC.

    Shame to see a dude this talented be on the shelf. But it has to be Held, hope they get the fight set up sooner rather than later.

    Talent wise I think Brooks is the best fighter in Bellator.

    Seems like more and more guys are complaining on not getting fights on Bellatorforce, just like they did in Bellator and WSOF, starting to think some guys will try to force their way out.

    I thought he looked really bad in his last fight.That other guy looked gassed after 1 round,was throwing some weird sh** and Brooks didn't look that superior.

    Aoki ain't going to fight brooks lol I doubt it'll ever happen. Aoki doesn't want a 7 on his record. him and his management are going avoid it at all cost.

    That's why it's good to have top talent scattered in different organizations.

    :(
