It’s not unusual for Bellator cards to go under the radar these days, but Benson Henderson was supposed to be one of the fighters who would make a bit of a splash and put them on the radar whenever he fought. Unfortunately for that plan, Henderson’s first fight is scheduled during the week where Conor…

2015 was supposed to be a new start for Bellator. Scott Coker has been in power since June of last year, he’s had time to work through the events that Bjorn Rebney already had in place, shape the roster with his vision, and the result is… the promotion’s first card of 2015, Bellator 132, looking…

With Jones, we’ve seen a man who tried to be a role model, but instead just can’t seem to…

There’s already been one Bellator card since Scott Coker took over the reins of the promotion early this year, but Bellator 123 is the first event that Coker has really been able to put his stamp on. With that in mind, this looks very much like a Strikeforce card. It’s headlined by a solid title…
