Shots Fired! The first episode of the new TUF is already ripping into Bellator

Shots Fired! The first episode of the new TUF is already ripping into Bellator

Technically the new episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Penn vs. Team Edgar can claim that not even former Bellator champions can compete amongst the ranks of TUFers vying to get into the fighter house. I mean they can say that, but it would be extraordinarily aggressive on their part and a senseless action since in Bellator isn't their competitor -- at least that's what Dana White has told us the past couple years.

Nevertheless, the editors of TUF made a conscious decision to include this clip of a contestant Ian Stephens calling out Bellator after he defeated former Bellator champion in a unanimous decision. Props to @DenisMMAManiac for the find.

Dumb idiot. When uncle Dana doesn't give him a slave contract he has already burned his bridge with Bellator.

The kid made Good look like an ammy. I was actually surprised at how much he was dominated considering his experience (regardless of what promotion he fought for).

This guy is a fuckin idiot. Seriously making a comment like that. Look you beat the fighter. Good job! But to act like that and jump on the UFC nuts that way. Classy...Not so much. Fighters need to understand you are a product nothing more. When your expiration date is up. They throw you away. FIghters need a Bellator...WSOF ...ONE FC...etc. This keeps fighters not in the UFC with another way to make income. Also, keeping UFC honest and not LOW Ball fighters. I love the possibble fights in the UFC. But thier fighter development sucks. You need these smaller shows the build this mystique of fighters. Smaller shows seem to make it about the fighter. Not about the promotion. UFC so fucking arogant that they think people watch the UFC...because its the UFC. You should be watching it for the fighters. But trust me....the UFC doesnt want fighters to be bigger than the UFC. When thier are fighters that are bigger than the UFC....and by bigger i mean well off financially. You tend to hear how they really feel. We hear how fucked up the UFC is. So basically dont be like this dumb ass UFC COMPANY GUY NUT HUGGER.
