I'd still like to see Bellator use a ring.

Until they change they will always be a copy of the ufc and the cagefighting lifestyle.(the very things that have infected and damaged the sport)

Rizin was awesome and I can't wait until the next event.

Bellator...well..it's ok. I don't get super excited about it though.

Great signing for Bellator.  Yesterday Benson, today Sergei, and now they are trying to get Reem.  Would be crazy if they got Reem too since he has a win over the UFC HW champ and just beat their top contender JDS.  
I hope to see all these guys in both Bellator and Rizin in the future.  Some great fights can be made.

Regardless of where Reem ends up, the fighters must be loving this competition between promotions.

Best thing about this signing is it means at the very least fedors next opponent could be sergei.


Bellator may use a cage but its a north american company looking to overtake the ufc,say what you want but its the ONLY org in direct competition on home turf and beyond.

Bellator supports a fighters union,sponsorship freedom ,rizin federation,hybrid cards.....

Literally only thing to cry about is cage which isnt even an octagon.



Love bellator been here since day 1!!!

Like McDonalds. I'm lovin it. Kharitonov should be bring some fun and a name to the heavyweight division. Say what you will about Bellator but their heavyweight division is not a joke anymore.

Minakov, Johnson, Kongo, Sakai, Spartan, Ayala, Butler, Wren, Teixeira, Thompson, Huddleston, Sosnovskiy, Charles, and Lashley. Now if only Minakov would return, we can rock n' roll.

I think you kind of described exactly how I feel. What I'm really happy about is seeing global Mma start to rise again, and what I mean by that is non-UFC MMA.



This is yet another great signing, and just as the president said this is just the tip of the iceberg !

Love bellator been here since day 1!!!

I agree with this opinion as well, I'm torn between taking a strict purist posture versus a progessive-mma thinking one On this issue.


One thing is clear though, and when I say this I believe everybody on this board or the majority at least feels the same way, we would like to see UFC taken over and MMA improve as a result because we are Real fans of the sport and it's fighters and not just a simple brand !!!

Agreed man
I understand some people only like ring mma but realistically north american mma was founded by cage mma.

Some see cage and only see zuffa version of the sport but one must take into acount the entire picture.Bellator uses a cage but not same as Ufc,they also are leading the way in north america by showing one night tournaments,hybrid cards,broadcasting rizin to Americans and fighter sharing showing them the alternate options priming their minds for Rizin.

Bellator is all about respecting legends of the sport,copromotion,world cup style gps,a fighters union,sponsorship freedom,hybrid cards,tournaments,entertainment value,and overall the fighters and fans.

Cage will never be gone from mma but it doesn't have to be 2 versions can co exist when the leaders in the sport work together for the betterment of the sport.

UFC must die!! Once bellator is #1in america we will see the true golden age of mma return.

Rizin Alliance was formed with the help of bellator dont forget that!!!

War FEDERATION!!

That's right. That would be a great fight to see. Bellator is really stepping up. They are building up the best version of MMA with all those things you listed.

A Bellator takeover working with RIZIN and K-1 and the entire RIZIN Federation would be unreal. Hope this happens. This is best version of MMA by far with JMMA, US MMA, cross-promotions, fighter sharing, fighters choosing sponsors, JMMA rules and gear in RIZIN, production,...., Now this is MMA!

Yeah, in my opinion, ring and cage both have there place in the sport.  I like ring better but I like both platforms for the diversity of it.

Some great points in your posts.

Time for Sergei to become Bellator champ. I can see him easily taking the strap and getting his US credibility.
