Not bad at all, they can make some good fights. I like the sound of Mitrione-Kongo.

Mittrione is a good pickup.

Fun fighter to watch and woulda beat travis browne if his eye wasnt almost poked out of his head lol.

Very nice Smile

Agreed meathead is imo under appreciated he has fast powerful hands very explosive,and has worked alot on his groundgame.

During his initial ufc tenure he was sorta undertrained and relied on his speed never had great cardio and gameplanning was lacking....in essence he was a gatekeeper that was entertaining.

Since moving to better gyms and dedicating himself to evolving he has shown an interesting skillset and at his best has proven he can hang with the lower top ten of ufc and without an eyepoke he would probly still be in the ufc.

Exactly ...

Its the mid tier to upper echelon fighters that can get PAID in Bellator.

Dont forget aside from six figures he has sponsor freedom....chaching!!

Mittrione can hype fights well and i hear the bad blood with tito is still there he wants a tito fight haha.

That's right.  I forgot about that.  Mitrione vs. Tito is the fight to make.

Meatheads deal is pretty staggering...

Guaranteed six figures every fight he has plus sponsor money plus he was just hired as color commentator for Bellator Kickboxing.....guy is gonna be making bank.

Gaethje and macdonald have said whoever pays more will win and brooks said he wants to go to ufc....

But you never know who's serious and who is just trying to gain leverage for a good deal.

My opinion not everyone will agree but to me it should be the top guys fighting top guys regardless of what org example luke rockhold vs chris weidman in deep or liam mcgeary vs jon jones in bamma Realistically people should care more about whom fighting whom and not "oh why are in this org and not that one" ? . 

most of the people who say that stuff are mainly casual fans though  i will admit .

Agreed gaethje and moraes but i think moraes will go ufc.

Gaethje is just whoever pays more and with his fan friendly style i can see bellator throwing some cash at him.

Hope the same goes down with rory macdonald.

Just did some research i think you guys might apreciate...

Mitrione is shotokan karate black belt lol

Hes was ranked #14 in the UFC(out of 40)before his fight with #6 travis browne meaning he was a top 15 ufc hw when he signed to bellator.

Bringing the # of ranked talent bellator has poached from zuffa up to 4.
Mitrione,davis,henderson,Thomson,kongo,and rampage is returning too so 6 I guess.

Then you got midtier and prospects like Francis Carmont,Kendall Grove,John Salter,Justin Lawrence,and Sirwan Kikai.

I think a kongo vs meathead rematch may happen but not for debut give him a guy like raphael butler that'd be fun and a good test.

^Yeah, I prefer a fight against someone like Butler to see if he can cut it in the Bellator HW division. He should have to work his way up a bit since he was near the bottom of the UFC top 15, prior to getting fights with Kongo, Minakov, Lashley,... Benson Henderson was a bit different since he is a long established top contender/champ so it made sense to throw him in against some of Bellator's best right off the bat.

I know Butler from boxing, I didn't know he was fighting in Bellator now.

Unfortunately his first opponent will be a squash. Should have had him fight Lashley.
