The tournament structure just makes that tough. Using Chandler as an example: He just defended his belt at the beginning of the season. The LW tournament started 2 weeks later. Because tournaments take 3 mos to complete and the winner will need at least 3 mos to prepare for the shot...Chandler wont likely fight again until summer.

One good thing that Bellator has done is somewhat stack the tournament winners. The last LW tournament final had to be postponed last season and will happen in 2 weeks. That means that Chandler will have potentially 2 opponents waiting for him next season.

I dont know why I thought he would lose but I did. He seemed way too cocky in his first fight and Newton was a tough out.

What a disaster for Bellator. Here are their 4 biggest high profile signings: Daley, Mo, Babalu, Rogers - Rogers, Babalu and Mo lost and Daley cant get a visa to fight in the US.

That's a good call then. I figured it would be somewhat competitive, but I never for a second considered him losing. Especially like that. I know Mo's in love with his hands now and keeps them kind of low, but I figured he'd be slick enough to get it done. I guess the Jeff Mayweather training alone doesn't make you invisible in Bellator lol. I might check out TNA whenever he's scheduled to be on there again to see how they fit the loss into his storyline.

Loved the KO. Mo was always overrated, he got outstruck by Roger Gracie FFS. Here's the GIF too.

Re: The Official Bellator Thread

This was an awesome card, topped off by 2 great KO's to end it. Even though Bellator I bet isn't happy that King Mo got KO'd like that.

Re: The Official Bellator Thread

King Mo stick with wrestling bruh lol

I'm still mad that he got such a large margin of victory against Mousasi. Ever since then I stopped liking Mo.

Glad to see Lima make it to the final too
