We already know that Coker and SF dont hype or market thier fighters, so if/when all of the "named guys" jump ship he will be stuck trying to figure out how to hype a title fight with unknown fighters. At that point, SF will become a B league org to the UFC, WEC, and the up and coming Bellator
Totally agree man. On a side note I really have high hopes for Bellator, they are a true independent MMA promotion. They work with what they have and don't try and pretend to be what they're not (Strikefarce trying to make people belive they're the best org in town). They simply go out and put on a fantastic show and don't shove promo adds down your throat to make you think they're the best thing since sliced bread. They let the fights speak for the organization. Great production, decent annoucing, entertaining fights.
