Question, and this is not a "troll", I am genuinely curious on your opinion.

Isn't that organization that Tito is fighting with, mostly made up of guys who are either too old, or not good enough to fight UFC?

I do not believe so. There are a mix. Some have never fought in any organization and this is their fight time in a cage.

The UFC has to have recruiting grounds to pull from. Bellator - and those like them - are one of those from which they pick. UFC sees themselves as being the apex of MMA and one has to earn their way to the top.

Bellator (and Invicta/Strikeforce) are the minor leagues IMO. There are some tough dudes/Dudettes that fight there, but UFC is the majors.

What fucking KO by knee by Paul Daley.

Why are Marines in Dress Blues lined up for Tito?

Edit: Eh. It seems for the Presentation of Colors and the National Anthem. That is classy of Bellator.

Tito chokes out Chael.

Chael just gave up his back and the fight so easy.
