When fighters are given their release from a major North American MMA promotion like the UFC, Bellator or WSOF – unless they’re a major star – they often fall into obscurity on the regional/overseas circuit unless they rack up a few wins and end up signing with one of the aforementioned promotions. In this regular feature for…

Lightweight Marcus Edwards gained a ton of notary this past July when he stepped in at the last minute – replacing an injured Mike Ricci – to fight Pat Healy in the main event of Titan FC 34.

Bellator MMA returns Friday night with arguably their most stacked event this year, as Bellator 136 emanates from the Bren Events Center in Irvine, California. With UFC Fight Night: Krakov offering a lackluster event, this is one of the rare weekends where Bellator could dominate the MMA headlines. Along with the lightweight championship being on…

The way things are shaping up; next month’s Bellator 136 event looks to be one of the most stacked cards for the promotion in 2015 and a fight that’s being overshadowed is a middleweight tilt between Brian “The Professional Predator” Rogers and Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran. The former UFC fighter Beltran, who previously competed at light…

Bellator 125 took place tonight at Save Mart Center in Fresno, California, and the card turned out to be a blast to watch as the two main featured bouts each ended in a bang. In total, five betting favorites won while one underdog came through and one fight closed as a pick ’em based on the…

When it comes to cagefighting, Doug Marshall doesn’t mince words. The former WEC light heavyweight champion has found a second wind for his career inside the Bellator career ever since dropping down to middleweight and he’s been a force to reckon with against some of the best the promotion has had to offer. His brutal…

Violence will be the order of the day when Bellator 125 hits the airwaves on Friday night on Spike TV. The organization’s four-fight main card is headlined by a pair of middleweight bouts which seem extremely likely to end with only one fighter conscious. Combined, those top four fighters have 68 career wins, 55 of…

Doug Marshall and Melvin Manhoef aren’t going to suddenly become world-beaters at 37 and 38 years old, respectively. We all know exactly what each man brings to the cage at this point in their careers. That’s exactly why, despite being divisionally irrelevant — yes, even in Bellator — this fight is something to watch on…

Well it seems UFC 178 simply isn’t meant to be the blockbuster event everyone had it pegged as since way back in March, when Alexander Gustafsson reclaimed his #1 contender’s slot with a victory over Jimi Manuwa. Few saw Jon Jones’ April title defense against Glover Teixeira as more than a mere detour on the…
