Also, if he's bulking, the larger question is can he even still make 205? I think he wins the HW crown easily if he wants, but chatter is it that he was struggling to make 205 and HW was inevitable, much like a move-up is inevitable with McGregor.

Really though. Is this sport still not evolving? How is that a legitimate fight card?

The UFC is definitely putting their money where their mouth is as far as the best fighters, but Bellator realized that they can get a shit-ton of eyeballs at a fraction of the cost by putting on weird freak-show fights and not giving much of a **** about the athletic meritocracy of it all... and the strategy is paying off. Bellator 145 beat the last UFC Fight Night, WITH Hendo and Belfort as the main.
If you want the MMA demo and can get 1.5 million eyeballs from the UFC with a huge cost with an elaborate kabuki dance of sponsorship horseshit, or you can cut Bellator a check for 1/5th that and get the same thing, who do you go with? UFC has PPVs locked up but as far as free MMA goes, Bellator is going to take away viewers who don't give a shit about watching an athletic contest, they just want to watch a good scrap.

Pretty shitty card all around. A finish or two in the prelims, but zero on the main card. Extended the DVR a half hour, and still didn't get to see the 5th round of the main event.

What a shock, split decision.
Definitely had Sexiyama losing. Surprised by DHK getting that KO
