As Bellator continues to pick up steam with their successful “Bellator 170: Ortiz vs. Sonnen” card, the rivalry between the Viacom-owned company and WME-IMG’s UFC only got more intense. While the difference in popularity is drastic between the two mixed martial arts companies, it’s getting increasingly difficult to ignore the growth of Bellator.
One of women’s mixed martial arts pioneers in Gina Carano recently voiced her opinion on how Bellator handled the show this past Saturday and gives Bellator a lot of credit:
My favorite thing about last night. SO MANY LEGENDS who built the sport treated right and appreciated in the same building @BellatorMMA ❤️TY
