This is a different twist on a UFC poster. Pretty cool.

I love stuff like this. There's such a wealth of design aesthetics out there that can be used, so why not use them more frequently?

That said, whilst this is more Grecian than Roman, this would really suit Bellator better, just given their name.

Despite their name, I'd rather Bellator steer away from the while Glecian/Roman theme. 

"Gladiator Man" used to be a central part of the UFC's opening video packages for PPVs. And truth be told, it was a bit naff. Bellator doesn't need to be copying them and coming across even more as a cheap imitation.

As this was already done for the UFC, I wouldn't advocate Bellator then doing it - only if it hadn't been done before.

But I should clarify: the Grecian design scheme is awesome, but I also think there's a whole host of other schemes from across the world they could use in posters, or across the entire field of art. Just looking at Olympics posters across the entirety of its history in the modern age, they could draw on so much.

Reminds me of the "Our Great Sport" image that used to float around here years back. 

Ah, someone remembers my work. This has made my day.

(Well, I say "my work" - I just googled an amateur wrestling pic and added "our great sport" on GIMP.)

Was my sig (remember those?). I only came up with it because it seemed to annoy Pitcos (back when he and I didn't get on all that well). 

I actually started up a wrestling fanblog on Tumblr with that sig as the banner, and tried to regularly post my fan reviews of various wrestling shows that I'd watched, but I just didn't have the disciprin to keep it going. Googled it, but it's not there any more.

They could definitely do with switching shit up where the posters are concerned. It’s not the most important thing obviously but they’re lazy as fuck these days with it. These two shows are only a week apart, and the posters are near enough same, from the layout to the colours.

Granted, Rodriguez vs Waterson came together last minute so they’d have had to throw that one together quick. But given the late change, I’m guessing this was the design the were going to use for the original Sandhagen vs Dillashaw fight anyway and they just edited it. If you’re gonna do basically the same poster for back-to-back cards, at least change the colours up or something.

Again, something of nothing really. Posters don’t mean much. But it’s mad when you see some of the stuff out there made by fans compared to this shite. Then again, they have more freedom to be creative whereas I’m guessing the UFC want more of a uniform look to theirs.

This is worth a watch. Din Thomas taking us inside the Chandler camp. 

Edit - It’s starting again. Hermansson vs Shahbazyan pushed back a week.
