    I used to really enjoy Bellator but there is no way in hell I am going to START watching a 2 hour event at 10 pm on Thursday.
    Thanks for the memories and I wish Bellator the best of luck.

      Thats rough for you east coasters. Luckily you have DVR to record it. Its on at 9 pm where I am at, which is a bit more manageable.

      Pumped to see Tiger Sarnovski again though.
