Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh snap. This is what I’m talking about. If Dana is going to start throwing barbs, throw em right back, Bellator. A little competition hurt no one, and pleases the viewing public greatly.
I hated Chael Sonnen getting the 205 shot after a loss at 185, absolutely hated it. He hadn’t won at 205 in years, and his fight with Shogun is irrelevant. I endorse this statement from Bjorn.
“Our point of difference is that we’re real sports competition, and when it boils down to world title fights, when it boils down to crowning our champion at 170, or 55 or 45 or whatever weight class, guys are going to earn the right to fight for that championship and they’re going to have to beat the champion. It’s the toughest tournament in sports, it’s real sports competition.
We’re not sitting around waiting for some wrestler to lose two fights straight and then bark his way into a 205 world title fight. That’s just not the essence of what we do.”
