My god. If there is anything that we as fans, media and whatever else we are enjoy, it would have to be when an underdog can take a swipe at a goliath. That is precisely what happened today on Twitter as Bjorn Rebney replied to Dana White’s tweet that he sent out over the weekend about karma. I still find it hard to actively root for Rebney or Bellator, but it is pretty interesting that he is able to tout better numbers than the UFC for at least one show.
What I find fascinating is if you check the tweet and see all of the replies, fans get so territorial. Fans are already digging into Bjorn Rebney and not letting him or Bellator have their tiny victory.
@danawhite If Fight of the Year & 10 times better ratings than you did on your last televised show is Karma, bring me another plate.
