Bellator's 2nd and 3rd seasons kick off on April 8th. For those that don't know, Season 1 took place over a few months and consisted of a weekly fight show, with a tournament format which finally crowned the promotions first champions. The season was a huge success, the only problem was, it wasn't shown on US TV, it only aired live in Spanish. This time it's on Fox in America (not in the UK, but it should be easily available if you know what i mean), and i can't fucking wait for it to start. The promotion heavily features up and coming fighters, some of the hottest prospects in MMA will be on these shows, it's gonna be awesome and it's weekly!!

Yeah, really looking forward to this too...last I heard Phillipe Nover was looking at trying to get into the LW tournament after having left UFC?

Why isn't there a separate forum again?

We don't do subforums. There was an epic war a few years back about MMA threads. This reached such a height that MMA threads were close to being banned from the entire forum.

But why don't we do a sub-forum for MMA? Then that's the problem solved surely. Or am I missing something?

sorry Neil, i was thinking i might be pushing it a bit, but this is a weekly show, thought it was worth a topic.

 

plus, is anyone complaining about the MMA threads?

Can't wait to see this.Some real good fighters involved.Warren,Askren,Wallhead,Cummings,Hornbuckle and Curran are the ones I'm most familiar with.

 

I hope to see 'Judo' Jim Wallhead win the WW tourney.He was one I was sure UFC would have signed by now to be honest.Maybe the fact he's another Rough House WW went against him possibly causing another AKA situation where 3 WWs won't fight each other.

I don't want to come across as some spoil sport here, but I for one don't appreciate all of these MMA threads. I come on the UKFF to read and share my views on wrestling, not martial arts. I don't mind the odd UFC thread here and there, but I don't see why mma should get its own threads on here, yet football, boxing, darts, formula one etc gets discussed in the off-topic section. Pro wrestling is a completley different entity to mma. I'm sure there are forums out there specifically for you ground and pound lot.

 

Once again, I don't want to come across as sounding like a twat, but come on - there's fucking loads of different cage fighting threads here already.

The first sentence in my above post.

 

Which just makes a statement and doesn't explain why, which is what I'm asking.

 

It's not like there'd be requests for sub forums all over the place. MMA is pretty much unique in it's relationship to pro wrestling and it's crossover appeal to wrestling fans.
