    I was wanting to be a cunt but sure, why not. Just make sure I can get a shot to run it back if I lose.

    Sounds good. Two weeks. Sig bet. I got Fedor, you got Mir.

    A built in rematch, not sounding all that confident ;)

    It is funny as fuck to me that rampage always whines about not wanting to fight wrestlers, then gets matched up with wrestlers.

    Rory MacDonald thinks he’ll be used as an alternate in Bellator’s heavyweight tournament

    Jesus, he really wants to end his career with a bang apparently. Dude gets genuinely fucked up by fighters in his own division. How the hell is he going to do against legit HWs and LWs? 1st round destruction is the logical answer (I'm assuming for everyone's evaluation.) Seriously, how the fuck does he think he'd match up well against anyone in the tournament, other than maybe Chael (yes, I really do understand the hypocrisy of my statement)? Dude'd get KO'd by every one of them in under 3 minutes, tops.

    I get that he's got a boner to participate in a tournament, but set your sights more reasonably. Beat Lima and call out Michael Page. If Venom hits him with a flying knee to the forehead, and Rory's skull doesn't cave in, then ok... maybe he's ready for the LHW division.

    I would love to see the Canadian Psycho enter as a second or third round alternate and win this shit.

    Bellator should have just done it open weight... on a boat in international waters.

    I think Bader has a solid chance of winning it.
    Would love to see a motivated Fedor, but that's been a long time since he was motivated to compete.

    If they're even considering Rory, I wonder how an open-weight Bellator Supreme Badass tournament would go.

    Matt Mitrione says he kicked UFC matchmaker for ‘lying’ to him, Joe Silva responds

    Shane Carwin claims he asked to be an alternate for the tourney. Bellator declined and told him they'd offer him a deal, but he would have to fight for a year and take warm up fight to fight for a title.

    I have to admit, I'm impressed with bellator not just jumping on the wagon to sign an ex-ufc fighter.

    irconically enough, he approached the UFC too. they told him he could come back, but offered him $40,000/$40,000 and he'd have to fight on the under card. I guess his ego couldn't accept it so he declined. saying that he was getting 6 figures, and even 7 for fighting brock. guy hasn't fought in 6 years and left losing back to back fights and apparently thinks he demands top pay? Even after burning Rizin and not honoring his contract there. lol nope

    this might have been posted elsewhere, I saw him post a retirement thread on Reddit, where he's adored

    He doesn't deserve top pay but low 6 figures maybe. And at least a fight on the televised prelims. The guy is a former champ after all.

    Because if the fight goes past the first round he's got 0 gas left and looks horrendous.

    He's only had 2 fights in his entire career go passed the first, worth the risk id say

    Didn’t Carwin announce he’d retired yesterday after turning down a 40/40 contract offer from Bellator?
