    Good move by Bellator. Will it be a good fight? Not so sure on that one.

    If the fight actually makes it to fight night, I think Wanderlei takes it.

    Is Bellator under USADA? I can't imagine either of these guys being anything other than juiced to the gills for this fight. At this point I feel like it's the only way wandy makes it to the cage and the only way chael makes it competitive.

    No, Bellator just uses commissions for drug testing.

    Bellator and Sonnen have mentioned it a few times.. Sonnen has a stipulation written into his contract - if he fails a PED test and gets pulled from an event, Sonnen gets hit with a $500,000 fine by Bellator.

    I think the NY athletic commission was pretty rule oriented from those past couple UFC events. Not sure what their drug testing is like.

    Will Chael promise to try in this fight? I'd watch but shit would they need a lot more to get me to buy it. Fedor vs Beltran would not cut it. Fedor vs Crocop with both being juiced to the gills would.

    Was that under Rebney or Coker?

    Just before Coker took over.

    I would assume he can put on a better PPV event than Rebney.

    How about true Coker style...

    Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva
    Phil Davis vs Ryan Bader (LHW title fight)
    Fedor vs Kongo
    Lorenz Larkin vs Paul Daley
    Matt Hughes vs Royce Gracie 2

    And throw Dillon Danis and Justin Wren on the prelims against a couple sure wins.

    I think Fedor's getting an easier fight than Kongo, kinda thought they were even reaching with the bloody Mitrione match-up at this juncture. Curious if Coker would gamble on how shot Bigfoot is now and maybe they look to book that rematch, with the idea that Bigfoot has fallen so far and they can give Fedor an avenged loss narrative.

    Bigfoot is already lined up for an ass kicking via Minakov.

    So, what you're telling me is that he'll be even MORE chin-ier for a Fedor rematch!

    Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Mitrione to co-headline Bellator 180 in New York

    Viacom is throwing down a shitload of money for this show, especially with it being Fedor, MSG rent and whatever other big names they book for that show.

    They've gotta be booking at least one or two freakshows with past names. Royce/Hughes II and Chuck/Tito III lol.

    Daley/Kos II would be cool for hype but Daley is headlining with Rory in the UK.

    Curious how they load the rest of this card, they've spent big money on Davis/Bader but that's not a draw per se. Suppose Larkin, Lashley and MVP could get some nice showcase fights. Also guessing they're gonna top load this card with action fighters too.

    I can dig it.
