Problem with Bellator in 2019 and the future

Bellator since Scott Coker became the promoter in 2014 they got a lot better!! Signing free agents like Ryan Bader, Ryan MacDonald, Gegard Mousasi and prospects like Aaron Pico, Ed Ruth, Juan Archuleta, Adam Borics, Patrick Mix, James Gallagher. The main card events are entertaining to watch but never get millions of views, Why?

Bad Marketing

Bellator 208 Fedor Emelianenko vs Chael Sonnen was supposed to be a huge ratings success, Millions of views but it got half a million. It was a failure, Only diehard MMA fans watched that card. Problem with Bellator is they’re terrible marketers. Lack of advertising on social media about they’re upcoming events.

Most of they’re cards are actually fun to watch but they’re a waste of a card when 100 thousand to 500 thousand people watch there top events.

Bellator should do a vlog

To be honest with you, Had no clue who Nasrat Hapqarast was until his second round KNOCKOUT against Joaquim Silva. Impressive win over a UFC veteran who dominated the entire fight. Seeing he was 23 years old at the time, Coached by Firas Zahabi and GSP, He has a lot of potential.

Nasrat and Zihabi

Nasrat being coached by Firas Zihabi doesn’t get better than that. Nasrat part of the future for Tristar Gym, Being the next champion to come out of Tristar Gym. Zihabi guiding Nasrat through his UFC career.

“Firas is a guy that doesn’t compliment a lot of guys too much; he doesn’t want to make people cocky. He tells me a lot that, ‘You’re going to be a world champion, just stick to the plan that we’re doing now,’ because he knows how I live my life. He sees the work and dedication through my lifestyle and with his knowledge from building fighters like Georges St-Pierre, I think we can repeat it.”

George St Pierre one of the greatest fighters of all time, GSP coached by Zihabi, Creating atmosphere for Tristar Gym. Leading by example for the upcoming fighters including Nasrat.

“Georges was so happy,” Haqparast said. “Georges is a really nervous guy. Before the fight I was so happy and smiling. Georges is like, ‘Nasrat you’re a psychopath, how are you smiling?’ I said, ‘Georges I love it so much, you guys are my idols, my brothers, the only thing I can do is smile.’

Wood in 2020

Brad Pickett was part of the early generations of British MMA fighters, He was a trailbrazer. Wood is now part of the new generation of British MMA Fighters, Wood will be one of them leading the way!!

Wood fights former Flyweight Title Contender John Dodson on UFC ESPN +25 Anderson vs Blachowicz 2 on February 15th. Dodson is #12 ranked Bantamweight. Tough fight for Wood but a fight he can win and impress Dana White. Exciting fight to watch against a world class fighter.

Win over Dodson will place Wood on the top Ten or replace Dodson ranking. Nathaniel Wood by the end of the year can be ranked top 5, Contender for the Bantamweight Title if he consistently fights in 2020.

pATRICK mIX RIZIN 20

AJ Mckee in 2019 had his three impressive wins, Derek Campos being the last that was for the first round in the Bellator Featherweight Tournament. Mckee masterfully wrestled, Grappled with Derek Campos. Winning the rounds, Ending the second round with a triangle armbar.

Aj McKee upcoming semi-finals fight will be against Darrion Caldwell(Former Bellator Bantamweight Champion) or Bellator Prospect Adam Borics. Both fights will be interesting, See how much McKee progressed if he fights Caldwell. Fights Borics be interesting to watch two Bellator prospects compete.

McKee Jr vs Pitbull would be the most entertaining and intriguing fight to watch for the tournament.

The confident 24 year old, Believes he’ll win the Featherweight Tournament and the next fight after the tournament wants to face Patricio Pitbull for the Bellator Lightweight Title. “Ask and maybe McKee will receive. “

“Where’s my belt?” McKee asked, a question directed at Bellator double champ Patricio Freire. “After this 145-pound tournament, I want the 155-pound (belt) right after. https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2019/12/aj-mckee-wants-bellator-lightweight-title-after-featherweight-grand-prix

Santiago Ponzinibbio vs Neal

Neal ask for a Top Ten opponent and he’ll receive. Ponzinibbio needs a fight, After pulling out because of injuries and Neal would be the perfect opponent!! Neal can start 2020 fighting Santiago with no significant injuries at the moment. Set the fight up for a UFC PPV Main Card fight or headline an event.

Fight of his life for Sidney Outlaw

Bellator 237 Main Event is Fedor Emelianenko vs Rampage Jackson but the co-main event is Michael Chandler vs Sidney Outlaw. Chandler one of the best Lightweights in the world and Outlaw #1 Lightweight Prospect before signing with Bellator. Outlaw has the oppurtunity to shock the world like Ali and defeat Chandler.

Outlaw in his last fight at Bellator 234 fought a veteran MMA fighter Roger Huerta in a unanimous decision victory. Usually for Bellator prospects they fight lesser known opponents and build the prospect up similar to Boxing but Outlaw fought a veteran fighter with lots of MMA experience.

Chandler won’t be able to look pass Sidney Outlaw, Ring of Combat Welterweight Champion, Titan FC Lightweight Champion. Outlaw living a dream as two years ago he was homeless, Struggling on a daily basis to survive but because of making the right decisions and living his dream of a MMA fighter he’s now the co main event of Bellator 237.

“Like, come on. I’m the guy who was sleeping in the park, getting shot at and getting robbed. I’m that guy in 2017 and 2018. That was me. That was me two years ago.”

Love to see One Championship keep signing free agents

One Championship is real competition to the UFC. Biggest MMA organization in Asia, No point of UFC holding events in Asia anymore because One Championship conquered it. Selling out arena’s in China, Tokyo, Thailand. Different atmosphere compared to US fans, More respect and honor, Fighters loving what One Championship values are and that’s why they’ve been signing here.

Eddie Alvarez taking advantage of Free Agency, What it has to offer and One Championship offered the best. Eddie Alvarez signing with One Championship massively impacted them, Will attract more free agents and prospects to fight here.

Love to see One Championship become the New York Yankees of MMA promotions, Signing best available fighters. Expanding their stable of talent, Competing with the UFC Long Term.

Signing future champions all across the world, Pound for Pound top prospects that will fight ten years for One Championship. Becoming stars for One Championship.

Options to make the most amount of money possible, Best oppurtunity to build their brand and compete against world class fighters. Love MMA Free Agency, Seeing the impact it has for fighters, What does the future hold?

Fighters since have followed such as Eddie Alvarez signing with One Championship, Justin Gaethje signs with UFC, Ryan Bader signs with Bellator, Ben Askren signs with One Championship, Demetrious Johnson traded to One Championship. Fighters now realizing what the impact Free Agency has for their careers, It will keep improving and creating impact!!

Future !!

NBA and MLB specifically, Free Agency is extremely popular. NBA is 365 days a year, Mostly because of Free Agency. NBA team signing a top ten free agent can really impact a team long term and that can happen for MMA promotions as well. Look at One Championship with Eddie Alvarez and Demetrious Johnson , One Championship is now exploding with a tv deal with TNT and Bleacher Report. Two MMA fighters created millions of new fans for One Championship. Imagine for example Jorge Masvidal, Henry Cejudo and Yair Rodriguez signed with Combate Americas!! Millions of new Combate Americas fans, ESPN and MMA Fighting headlines would be about Combate Americas.

Couple world class free agent fighters signing with another lesser known MMA promotion isn’t a fantasy it can happen again!!

One Championship and Bellator are competition for the UFC, Signing their best fighters available and other fighters for lesser known promotions. See more promotions take advantage of Free Agency, More competition, More options for fighters. Tier 2 promotions like Rizin take a risk and sign several world class fighters from UFC, Bellator, One Championship. Skyrocketing their brand, Sign a TV contract with Fox Sports.

Eddie Alvarez is earning millions of dollars, Fighting for One Championship. What’s the chance of that happening in the UFC? Very small. Fighters seeing Eddie’s contract and want to test the market as well. Will see a world class UFC Fighter in the next couple years with a contract in the 10 – 20 million dollar range. Consistently seeing million dollar contracts in the next couple years which is AMAZING!!

Excited to see when UFC and Bellator Fighters in their prime contracts expire and become free agents. Imagine when Darren Till, Paulo Costa, AJ McKee and Ed Ruth become free agents, It will be INSANE what their contracts will look like if they maximize their potential!!

5 ways Glory Kickboxing can get more popular

Glory Kickboxing is the premier Kickboxing Organization in the world with world class kickboxers…. Rico Verhoeven, Badr Hari, Cedric Doumbe, Marat Grigorian and many more kickboxers. Glory has great entertaining fights on every card. Crazy to me how Glory Kickboxing isn’t popular, Top ten Professional Organization with millions of views. How can Glory Kickboxing be more popular?

1. Billionaire needs to buy Glory Kickboxing

One of the MAIN problems is Glory lacks the funds to actually compete. Pierre Andurand the founder and owner of Glory has a net worth around 200 million dollars and to compete with UFC, Bellator, Premier Boxing Championship, DAZN Boxing Events. If Glory was bought by a billionaire, Glory would be a growing combat sports company.

2. Lack of Storytelling

Floyd Mayweather earned a billion dollars in PPV buys because of HBO 24/7. Telling stories before his upcoming fight with Oscar De La Hoya and Shane Mosley. Getting to know the fighter in a personal level besides his talents inside the ring. Their’s content like Embedded for UFC, Love to see content storytelling for UFC. Telling stories about Cedric Doumbe fight career, Coming up as a kickboxer, Pierre Andurand life running Glory. Produce storytelling content on a daily basis they’d be in business.

3. Lack of Marketing

Ask somebody in New York City, Los Angeles if they know what Glory Kickboxing is. Odds of people saying “Yes I know.” Is extremely low!! That’s a problem. Problem I see with Glory is they don’t market well besides showing old fights, Fight highlights on social media and YouTube. Joe Valtellini had a podcast with Joe Rogan couple years ago, Rico had a podcast with Joe Rogan but that’s about it. Rico should be on the Luke Thomas show, Ariel Helwani show, Food Truck Diaries with Brendan Schaub. Lesser known Kickboxers should go on the best podcast, Radio show possible that would accept them.

4. Unknown Promoter

Dana White, Bob Arum, Eddie Hearn, Scott Coker are all promoters, We know who they are. Promote they’re upcoming fights, Face of their organization. We have no clue who the Glory promoter is. Is Marshall Zelaznik(CEO of Glory) the promoter for Glory. If Glory had a official promoter, Glory would be more interesting, New fans would arrive quickly.

5. Bad Production Quality

The Glory TV representation is tacky, Seems cheap and the Glory event production is the same as well. Doesn’t engage you, Excite you. Agressively spend more money, Expand their production budget and you’ll progressively get more television views on ESPN, YouTube, UFC Fight Pass and DAZN. In addition to ticket sales progressing.

Raufeon Stots Bellator 236

Raufeon Stots, Top Bantamweight Prospect signed a long term deal not with UFC but Bellator. Exciting signing for both sides as Stots has potential to become a Bellator Bantamweight Champion in the prime of his career at 31 years old.

Stots will be fighting Hawaiian Bantamweight Prospect, Cheyden Leialoha at Bellator 236. Tough fight for Stots but he’ll be prepared as he trains out of top five or ten MMA Gym, Roufusport MMA Academy.

Stots was the Victory Fighting Bantamweight Champion

Fought for the top regional MMA promotion, Legacy Fighting Alliance. LFA champions and main card fighters usually go on to fight for UFC but was different for Stots. Waiting to get signed by the UFC but maybe because of his age and getting knocked out in front of Dana White by Merab Dvalishvili .

Excited for Raufeon Stots next fight and long term career at Bellator, Perfect place for him to rise and get a Bantamweight Title Shot.

Ignacio Bahamondes Combate 53

Ignacio Bahamondes, 22 Year Old Lightweight, Latin American Prospect from Chile is headlining Combate 53 against Milko Tucto on December 20th. Combate Americas one of the most underrated MMA promotions in the world. Combate Americas has their events shown on AXS TV and DAZN.

Igancio lost against Salvador Becerra at Combate 50 in his last fight, Toughest fight in his career so far.

Ignacio Bahamondes

  • 22 years old
  • 9-3 record
  • Lightweight
  • Lux Fight League Lightweight Champion

Igancio by 24, 25 years old will fight for the UFC or Bellator!! Excited for his upcoming fight.

Geoff Neal vs Santiago Ponzinibbio Next Fight?

Geoff Neal knocked out Mike Perry impressively in the first round. Best win of Neal’s career!! Showcasing his talents to new fans on the UFC 245 Prelim Headline. Fans like myself excited to see Neal’s next fight. Fight that makes the most sense is Neal fighting Santiago Ponzinibbio.

Santiago Ponzinibbio is a top ten UFC Welterweight, 27-3 record hasn’t fought since November 17th, Beating Neil Magny. Santiago supposed to fight Robbie Lawler at UFC 245 but Santiago pulled out because of a staph infection. If Neal wants a quick return in 2020, Ponzinibbio vs Neal would make a lot of sense!!

Neal vs Ponzinibbio can headline a UFC ESPN Event, Fight on UFC 247: Jones vs Reyes Main Card. Be an exciting fight to watch, Hopefully it happens.

Salahdine Parnasse Bellator Sign him!!

Salahdine Parnasse one of the best MMA prospects in the world!! Parnasse is only 22 years old with a record of 14-0, Fights for one of the most underrated MMA promotions in KSW a Polish MMA promotion. Beating the top fighters KSW has to offer him. Definitely fighting for the UFC in the future but rather the UFC, How about Bellator!

Parnasse (13-0-1) is considered a standout prospect in Europe and has proven his caliber since signing on the dotted line for KSW in 2017. The 21-year-old’s interim title capture came on the back of four consecutive wins with the Polish promotion.

https://www.mmafighting.com/2019/10/28/20936144/salahdine-parnasse-puts-interim-title-on-the-line-against-ivan-buchinger-at-ksw-52

Parnasse is the KSW Interim Featherweight Champion, Masterfully defeating Ivan Buchinger at KSW 52. Buchinger was the former M1-Featherweight Champion. Buchinger never fought for the UFC or Bellator but is a world class fighter at 33 years old. Next fight for Parnasse is defending the KSW Featherweight Title twice in 2020 against the toughest European Featherweights KSW has to offer.

After his KSW Featherweight Title Reign he can sign with UFC’s Toughest Competitor… Bellator. Bellator has came a long way since 2008, Having Scott Coker as their promoter and a stable of fighters such as Rory MacDonald, Ryan Bader, Gegard Mousasi and many more. Parnasse would be a perfect addition to the Bellator Roster becoming a star and a future Bellator Featherweight Champion.

Bellator is more aggressive lately by holding events in Europe and since Parnasse native country is France. Be a no brainer to promote European events with Parnasse being the main event!! Parnasse would be the future for Bellator MMA, One of the main attractions fighting the top Bellator Featherweights or Lightweight if he chooses to move up in weight for a superfight.

Wish this dream becomes a reality, Bellator does whatever they can to sign Parnasse, Having a future Bellator Featherweight Champion and the best Featherweight in the world when he reaches his prime.

Geoff Neal, 29 year old UFC Welterweight with a 4-0 UFC record has the toughest fight of his career fighting a gritty fighter in Mike Perry at UFC 245. Headlining the UFC 245 prelim. UFC 245 is the stacked card of the year which is perfect oppurtunity for Neal to give him exposure with casual fans!! Win over Mike Perry can potentially bring him in the top 15 rankings in one or two more fights!!

“Honestly, it is great just because of the exposure. A lot of people are going to see my fight. But, at the end of the day, I don’t care who is on the card as all I care about is my fight and my fight alone,” he explained. “I’m selfish and don’t care about who else is on the card, it’s all about exposure. I feel like more people will watch the prelims than buy the pay-per-view. This is a main card fight.”

https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/exclusive-interviews/ufc-245-geoff-neal-wants-to-be-the-first-person-to-put-mike-perry-away
