Why does the UFC have rankings when they give title shots to whomever they want?

I’m really only referencing the fact that Rory will be in it.

Yeah I know. My point is that mma orgs can do whatever the fuck they want.

Helwani is saying that Bellator has come to terms with Paul Daley and he's expected to face MVP in the opening round. Also per Brett Okamoto of ESPN Rory's belt will be on the line for this tournament so the winner either way will be the Bellator WW champ and all tournament fights will be five rounds.

I'm just going to shut the fuck up, then.  That is awesome.  You'd potentially have more than one title change in the one tourney.

Kinda surprised that MVP is finally getting a real fight. He’s been getting the prospect treatment for far too long.

As far as step ups go it's not the worst fight they could have made for him as far as the tournament goes. I don't think there's a high possibility that Daley tries to take it to the ground.

Paul Daley bitches more than anyone when someone tries to wrestle in his mma fights. I think he’ll stand and trade. MVP is a more dynamic striker, but Daley could sleep him badly with the right shot. Kinda want to see that.

If MVP fights long and keeps Daley at the end of his jab I think he can UD him, people who get caught by Daley only do so by allowing it to happen. He's got a nuke of a left hand but it's not like he achieves his knockouts by using top-level boxing.

I think MVP embarrasses Daley if it stays on the feet. This guy's ground game is mad suspect though.

I totally agree. I’m not rooting for it. But it’s how I see this going down. At least in the tournament format he’s going to get tested

Gallagher just made the wrong end of the bellator highlight reel tonight. Kinda always love seeing guys put on a big display before the fight get shut down.

Glad to see that the bum on the undercard that missed weight by 15lbs got finished.

That was such a satisfying beatdown. Gallagher is young and I think he'll be back but he needed to be sat down like that.

Darrion Caldwell is such a fucking beast. I'm glad that Bellator is finding homegrown talent to showcase but the selfish fan in me wants him to sign with the UFC. Having said that, him staying at 145 to fight Patricio Pitbull is a fight that given a good undercard I would absolutely pay money to watch.

Michael Chandler has re-upped with Bellator and it seems pretty likely at 32 years old that he'll finish his career with them. I'm happy that he's getting paid but I'm more then a little bummed out that we'll likely never see him go up against the killers that the UFC has at 155.

I imagine Wandy and Rampage gas out quick and then Rampage uses some wrestling and lay and pray to win a boring decision that makes it look like both guys should've retired 7 years ago. STILL EXCITED TO SEE IT. Mousasi/Rory tonight as well.

If it's anything like it's been for the NFL in Canada, DAZN should be quite the shitshow tonight.

Damn, I thought it was on Paramount Network? Of course Bellator would choose to air this show this way.

It could be worse, you could have been one of their UK fans who stayed up until 6am to watch the main event only to have the time slot run over and a rerun of motherfuckin' Peppa Pig come on instead.

I figured that going into this fight that the size of Mousasi was going to be a problem for Rory and it was. Props to the Red King for stepping up but I think those on his team and in his inner circle need to have a frank conversation with him about his future and his health cause he got bludgeoned at the end of that fight and he's probably now left Bellator in a weird situation because I don't see him stepping back into the cage for another 6-8 months or so and he was supposed to get a bye to the second round of the WW tournament to defend his title.

Also we all LOL'd collectively when Aaron Pico got dropped and choked out in his debut fight but holy jesus has he looked unstoppable since then. I'm totally ok with him in a #1 contender fight at this point and I'm sure Bellator would love to be able to promote a homegrown talent like him.

He's been fighting pro mma for fourteen years and has taken some beatings, including two bad ones in his last two fights (even if one was a win). Like Koab said before; when you start training for and fighting pro mma at age 16, your brain doesn't get the chance to ever fully develop. That's especially true if you are taking beatdowns like the one Condit gave him.

So depending on the outcome of tonight's fight (KILL HIM FEDOR) we could see the HW Grand Prix Finals being between two former UFC dudes who are natural MW's and LHW's.

I feel like if he isn't in the Top 10 of all time Ryan Bader is at minimum in the Top 15 at 205. Ever since the Rumble loss in 2016 he's looked unreal, going 11-1 in the last five years of competition against top guys is legit.

Bader has always been a favorite of mine. No surprise at all with how that fight went. If Fedor beats Chael and Bader beats Fedor the tournament will have gone as I thought.

I think the only thing that prevented Bader from a TKO victory is how tough Mitrione is. There were moments in that fight that were really close to being stopped, as evidenced by multiple 10-8 rounds.

I didn't see the show, but I'm reading the results and the one thing that jumps out to me is SERGEI KHARITONOV FUCK YEAH. Third guy to knock out Big Country after Arlovski and Hunt. Although Big Country hasn't been lighting the world on fire the last few years. Still, I'm glad to see Sergei get a decent win.

I love the talk that this was somehow a work. Like Chael Sonnen isn't infamous for doing dumb shit and quitting in big fights.

From what I've seen on MMA reddit and whatnot most of the people crying work are Chael fanboys. It's weird he has fanboys these days since he really hasn't done shit in six years and is an old washed up fighter with corny one liners.
