Unless they get what they want and give Alverez an immediate title shot on PPV... Which would be a bad move by Bellator in my eyes.

I definitely agree that they have a definitive format to getting to the title and becoming champion.
Yeah I agree, or those who were brand new to the org could fight another new comer to earn a slot in the next tourny.

One of the reasons I like Bellator is how quickly a star (or at least a semi-star) is born. When one guy goes through a tournament, he can go from a relative unknown to going through 3 opponents in a short time and becoming champion or at least fighting for the belt. Guys like Askren, Curran, Chandler, Friere bros quickly come to mind.
I agree. I know Dana recently took a shit on Bellator's recent decline in viewers on Spike but I think if Bellator keeps building on this Spike brand, they will gain tons of momentum over the year.
