Bellator recently announced it will hold a one-night, four-man light-heavyweight tournament that will crown a No. 1 contender for its 205-pound belt.

One snag Bellator hit with its tournament plans was a restriction on the total number of rounds the California State Athletic Commission will allow a competitor to fight. With a limit of five rounds in one night, Bellator decided to go with a four – rather than eight – men in the tournament.

According to MMAFighting, the field of eight includes Islam Mamedov (12-1), Mike Ricci (10-4), Joao Zeferino (18-6), Rich Patishnock (6-2), Jorge Patino (37-15-2), Brian Cobb (20-8), the winner of the WSOF 23 bout between LaRue Burley (6-0) and Brian Foster (22-7) and an additional two still-unnamed competitors. Seeding is not yet official.

WSOF officials declined comment on the particulars of the tournament at this time, including the rules and round structure, when contacted by MMAjunkie.

Yeah, you need the "classiness" of the ring where fighters can be like thugs by cornering opponents and fucking them up like muggers.

Yeah but cokers tournament is the best tournament Bellator ever put on.

Wsof sucks in general but uts obvious they bring nothing original to the table so they riding the hype Bellator tournament has generated.

Hes trolling peretti for constantly using the same posts over and over lol.

Also doing the same thing as peretti by targeting one flaw of a fighting platform and beating it to death.

Cage and ring both have flaws.

I agree with him. The cage got to go asap. Its not because of the rules its because the cage is a gimmick that shouldnt be involved in martial arts.

I dont agree....

I see both ring and cage as viable platforms for combat.

Ring just needs to be used in japan its not ever going to be the universally uses especially in america.

So your ok with unified rules.....its the cage that ruins fights????

You should talk to onefc about that lol.

Unified rules are the cancer....no one here can debate that...

One operates perfectly ....there is no example of a cage being a detriment using pride rules.

There are plenty of examples of unified rules ruining astronomical numbers of fights.

Unified rules sucks but my main issue is the whole cagefighting gimmick the sport has. You should see the douches in europe who think they´re mma fans. There are many finishes and good fights in unified/non unified cagefights and I don´t question that. I´m just 100% against the cage itself. I´m not against Bellator, KSW and ONE as promotions, I´m against what they represent with the cage.

Take KSW for an example. They went from epic to mediocre the moment they ditched the ring. I understand you like the way the sport is now but the majority of the users here want something completely different and we will keep fighting for what we think is right. For me personally mma is almost dead but I keep waiting for the tides to turn..

I support more tournaments but I don't really like WSOF so I'll be passing. None of those names really grab me anyways, Cobb is a solid journeyman and LaRue Burley is a promising up and coming fighter but other than that.. meh.

A ring doesn't make things "epic". The only reason people on this forum want it is because PRIDE had one just like the people here don't like the cage because the UFC uses it and popularized it. Honestly, a cage is much better than a ring regarding MMA. A ring has no business in MMA because it's not equipped to deal with grappling as you have too many cases of fighters nearly falling out of it or awkward restarts in the middle of the ring. With a cage, you don't have to worry about fighters falling out unless the door is not closed right and no awkward restarts in the middle.

As for the mugging stuff, that's more of a troll job because all I hear is a cage is a "dog cage" while the ring is classy. Honestly, nothing is "classy". It's fighting. Regardless of the environment, it's still two people in four ounce gloves beating the piss out of each other. I don't see how you make it "classy".

Props for the tournament, One night tournaments and yearly GPs need to come back.

The idea of the cage being that fence is so dumb. Makes about as much sense as putting bars stools in a ring to simulate a real fight. No class. I don't want to see a real street fight. Nobody wants to see a recreation of 2 crazy homeless people getting in a sreetfight using a fence as a weapon.

But I support the one night tournament

Hey the ring had it's place for awhile I mean it's still used in IGF. I clearly see the M-1 ring is the future image of MMA what more do you want. It has all environments of cage/ring elements and spectating friendly.
People need to be on board how excellent that ring is. It's the fix for all this cage vs ring debate.

Lmao of course cuz pride rules right??????

One has copied bellators cage if you didnt know so that statement is kinda contradictory.

I prefer circular cages period i dont like square,hexagon,octagon,decagons cages.

The seperate sectuins of straight fence allow for pinning in the corners where the circle enables more movement and allows for reversals.


Wsof is just lame tho
