    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.

    Pour some Monster drink on bitches titties and shutup Mo. That being said I do very much like the format Bellator uses and UFC could stand and dose of logic with scheduling their title fights.

    Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal Labels Bellator As A True Sport

    Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal Labels Bellator As A True Sport - FightLine.com

    Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal has only been in one Bellator fight and is already grasping the concept of earning a title fight by winning a tournament. Lawal noted how Bellator has direction with determining No. 1 contenders, unlike the UFC where the boss names who gets the next title shot.

    "It makes it a true sport," said Lawal to Bleacher Report. "I think the difference between Bellator and the UFC is that the UFC's more about the spectacle and more about flare. Whereas Bellator it really is a true sport. Every true sport has a title format."
