  • He looked great last night. The whole card was pretty solid right across the board and the Pat Curran vs. Pit Bull fight, was an excellent / awesome fight to kick off the Bellator on SPIKE. They did a great job last night, all-the-way-round and should be proud of the show, last night. It was far better than The UFC's debut on Fox.

    • Agreed with pretty much all of that. It'll all come down to the numbers though on how successful it was.

      • My only complaint about last night…the start-time. They really need to kick that off an 9 EST. That extra hour probably hurt their market, particularly on a week night.

        But yeah, Evan I thought it was a very good show, with a couple of great fights, peppered amongst mostly decent fights.

        I was pleased and it's nice to know that The UFC has some viable competition.

  • Chandler being as young as he is has some amazing potential. If he keeps working I am sure we will see him in UFC one day.
