Is it me or is Bellator MMA actually pretty good this season? I have been a casual observer of the company but with Scott Coker taking over I have to say I finding myself enjoying the action.
The main card of Bellator 125 featured four big fights on paper and all four were over in the first round. The biggest highlight of the night was Melvin Manhoef’s destruction of Doug Marshall in the main event.
