Is anyone else as pumped for Bellator on Spike as I am?
1) I really like Bellator. I enjoy the tournament format. I think the fights are spectacular. I know the competition is not as "good" as the UFC, but for the most part it is equal, which leads to good fights (for the most part). I like that there are not rankings. Win and you fight for the title.
2) Thursday nights are great for me. I live a boring life and when the Bellator was on FSMW they used to air shows on Thursday. Each week I would very much look forward to this. I used to look forward to Wednesday, b/c before kids I would go and have wings and happy hour, but now I look forward to Thursdays and Bellator. I know with the ultimate fighter you get one fight on a weekday, but this is an actual card.
3) Finally the shit is back on HD. That MTV 2 channel is horrid. HD makes a difference and I can't wait to see the production Spike rolls out. I always thought Spike did a good job with the UFC and now they can put that same production towards Bellator.
4) I am really looking forward to seeing Hawn, Chandeler, Askren (previous two are University of MU wreslters), Pat C., Pitbull, MO, Babulu, and so on. I think they are developing a good stable. With the more exposure that Spike will give, then I can't wait to see the more tournaments.
I really like to follow the Bellator Product. I think they put on great MMA fights that help satisfy my hunger while waiting for the big UFC cards. I implore you all to give them a chance on Spike. That way I will have people that want to converse about it without just saying, "Golly it is not the UFC." No it is not the UFC, but it is pretty damn entertaining in my humble opinion.
