No fucking shit.

This is a goddamn mockery.

Lowest common denominator.

I don't think the idiotic masses even will accept this shit, though.

Biggest joke of a card I think I have ever seen.

Don't underestimate the ignorance and simple thought process of the 'cage fighting lifestyle' fan base.

It is good that even fka sees the absolute joke which this card is.

When I saw that fka had just replied, I was concerned he would attempt to defend this card.

Due credit to him for not attempting to.

If fka can see the joke which this card is, I have a feeling it is going to be a flop.

Which is for the best.

What a fucking joke of a card.

Minakov is too lazy to have a fight, doe.

I don't see a problem with an occasional freak show fight and legends fight if they help ratings. I don't like them getting rid of Volkov and Sarnavskiy though. The match making needs some improvement.

I love Shamrock vs Gracie III. Don't really care about Kimbo but he gets high ratings. Having fights like this which bring in tons of eyes mixed with fights involving up and coming prospects is the way to go. You guys can complain all you want but cards like this bring in the biggest ratings for them.

Seriously, Bellator got worse than UFC in a matter of months..... How the fuck did that happen. Im not exactly a coker fan, but the dude was really good at matchmaking and promoting in SF what the hell happened to the guys logic?

Its like since he went to Bellator hes not the same person. I remember how SF had competitive fights with exciting Ko/subs every card they put. I had high hopes for Coker with Bellator , RIP

Your forgetting before strikeforce was a powerhouse they put on plenty of geezer freskshow fights.

Coker is following his strikeforce model i just wish hed fastforward the evolution.

This card is horseshit as it is right now...

Its american audience own fault though...if kimbo vs ken and titovs bonnar were failures we wouldnt be getting douchebag 5000 lol,but they both shattered records.

I enjoyed last nights fights and matchmaking im hoping for more cards like that ....only thing i can say is be patient.

Strikeforce was a geezer party but slowly the talent got recognized and things evolved....lets hope for the same.

PRIDE put on freakshow fights as well because they are good for casual fans (they help ratings and attendance and profits).  If the occasional legend and freakshow fights sell, like they did in the PRIDE model, let it be.  PRIDE also put on the best fights with the best fighters in MMA history.  The freakshows and legend fights are more part of the entertainment aspect of the sport.  Not a big deal and they have been a part of the sport from the beginning.

I completely agree with you bro the only thing is they shouldn't be happening as frequently and they shouldn't be headlining.

I didnt mind kimbo vs ken as i really didnt know who would win..

Ken vs royce gracie 3 as a headliner is dumb but i guess kimbo vs dada woulda been worse headliner.


Make freakshows co main at least imo.

They are a tv show so a ratings ploy is ok but they must retain some aspect of being the #2 mma company by the way they structure a card.

Any bets on what ratings will be?

Great points fka. You are right. They should not be main events and should not be this frequent.

I think the Gracie/Shamrock event will do good ratings. I think a lot of fans will tune in for that. Not sure what the number will be.

Frank shamrock was headliner multiple times against cesar gracie,Phil baroni,cung le,and nick diaz.

Tank abbott vs paul buentello was headliner.

Other fighters featured on early cards were vernon white,paul buentello,eugene jackson,Tony fryklund,Bobby southworth,Falinko vitale,Maurice smith,bill mahood,Jan nortje,bob sapp,Tiki ghosn,Drew fickett etc....just saying using known names even though they were aged isn't something new.

People only remember the gp and later on the stacked hw division and homegrown talent but dont remember the early growing pains that i do.

True, and many of those Shamrock fights were very entertaining. He was pretty solid for his comeback until Cung Le broke his arm with that kick.

What about the rest lol shamrock vs diaz was not competitive lol and cung le killed him too.

My point being is strikeforce was the shit....but it didnt start that way.

Bellator is still growing im not a fan of this card but acting like strikeforce didnt doit and rizin isnt going to doit is crazy.
