Often Bellator cards are 90% unknown cans with records like 0-0 and 2-1.

Even my muay thai coach here in Doha has fought on a Bellator card and is scheduled to fight on one in November.

Comparing ONE to smaller organizations isnt fair. ONE has arguably the best Flyweight division in MMA, and as Slevin has pointed out guys like Saygid and Lowen should be regarded among the top light weights in the world, arguably better than the Bellator LW champion.

MMA fans should recognize the top fighters in ONE, and the lesser known fighters are really no different than the lesser known fighters that populate Bellator cards.

What is the name of your muay thai coach? I want to look up his record. Are Bellator planning to come back to Tel Aviv in November?

To my understanding they're going back to Tel Aviv.

This is the guy

They only have his Bellator fight, but he has had several in Europe. He was living in Cyprus and was fighting in south eastern Europe.

What is his official record? I would be embarrassed as a coach if I lost a MMA competition and had to return to teach the next day. :lol: How did a Brazillian end up in Qatar?

There are a lot of Brazilians here. The gym where I train has around 30 Brazilians associated with it.

The Brazilians at the gym were brought here by Fabricio Moreira who founded the gym.

Arce has a good shot to finish this weekend though. Erosa is not bad but he is a bit chinny. This will be a nail biter
