This Friday, Bellator puts on one of the best fights the promotion is capable of producing, as Liam McGeary puts his light heavyweight title on the line against Phil Davis in the main event of Bellator 163.

Following in the footsteps of legendary promotion Venator FC, Bellator will be taking its show to Italy this weekend. Bellator 152 will be airing live on Spike from Torino with a five-fight main card. The main event should be a good one despite a late change, as Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire takes on Kevin Souza in…

After what was one of the most memorable (not necessarily for the best reasons) Bellator cards of all time, the promotion tries to get back to the real fights. Marcos Galvao defending his bantamweight title against Eduardo Dantas (in a rematch of their 2013 bout that Dantas won by KO) is far better than anything…

Bellator MMA lightweight John Alessio made headlines weeks ago when a post on Reddit revealed he is working for Uber.

The main event of Bellator 141 is a lightweight contest between Melvin Guillard and Brandon Girtz. Guillard was recently released by both the UFC and the World Series of Fighting. Girtz, on the other hand, is a veteran of mixed martial arts that has bounced around from various promotions.   Melvin Guillard (32-14-2 (1 NC),…

This Friday, Bellator will be the only show in town for MMA fans. Bellator 141 isn’t one of the organization’s ‘tentpole’ events, so it hasn’t gotten a lot of coverage, but it shouldn’t be lacking for action once the cage door closes. The main event features the Bellator debut of Melvin Guillard, as he takes…

Saturday will see the three biggest North American MMA promotions going head-to-head-to-head, as the UFC, Bellator, and WSOF all have cards running. From the standpoints of relevance, entertaining matchmaking, and morbid curiosity, Bellator may actually have the most intriguing card of the three. The only problem is that the company can’t seem to get out…

This Friday’s “Bellator” 129 card seems to be a new direction for the promotion. It seems they’ve taken Terry Trebilcock’s old King of the Cage formula and farmed out the Bellator name to some random Midwestern promotion running random Midwestern fights between random, once-moderately-named Midwestern fighters. Oh… this really is a Bellator card? My only…

Bellator has been extremely inconsistent with their cards since returning to their weekly schedule. Scott Coker has made the right call to move on from the weekly schedule next year, as the organization simply does not have the roster to sustain such a high volume. In the meantime they’ll put on cards like Bellator 125,…

MMA fans will have many choices for Friday night viewing, as Bellator, Titan FC, and Legacy FC all have cards overlapping to kick off the weekend. Bellator 126 is the highest profile of the three cards and it should be a good one, with a title fight and a tournament final taking place. In the…

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.

After going head-to-head with the UFC last week, Bellator should have a bit easier time keeping eyeballs this week.

His next challenger could…

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…

While this Friday marks the first Bellator event under the direction of Scott Coker, it won’t be until their September card that the promotion truly takes on the feel of Strikeforce.

Bellator’s 2014 ‘Summer Series’ kicks off this Friday from Thackerville, Oklahoma.

Bellator finally made it to pay-per-view on Saturday night, and the results seemed very appropriate for a promotion which over the years has managed to put on numerous exciting fights and memorable moments, yet has failed to gain the amount of traction one might expect from the world’s second-biggest MMA organization.

As has become one of the overriding themes of Bellator’s tenth season, Bellator 119 will not end up the same card it was originally scheduled to be.

After a two week absence, Bellator has made it’s way to Revel Atlantic City for a bantamweight title fight and a smattering of tournament bouts in the light heavyweight and welterweight divisions.

Although an injury to Bellator’s bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas forced him to drop out of his scheduled title defense with Joe Warren, the organization recovered swiftly and made what could even be considered a more interesting bout. Rafael Silva will step in on short notice to take on Warren for the interim bantamweight title. While…
