    Are Bellator the only “sport” that does the DVR + 3 ratings? They used to do the same with the UFC but DVR wasn’t as used back then.

    I would like all sports to be live, that includes certain Boxing fights on HBO & Showtime tape delayed in the west coast and even the London Olympics aired on tape delay

    Just curious?…do you guys know how the Bellator Kickboxing is doing? the shows seem to be every few months but are poorly promoted here in the states however I was told that they are very popular overseas n well promoted..if you follow kickboxing they got some fairly big names n talent.The cards are usually pretty entertaining but feel rushed only 3x3minute rounds..however from what I read,some appeal to Bellator Kickboxing will be that some of the recent UFC signed guys IE Ben Henderson,Rory Mcdonald,Matt Mitrione,Vanderlie Silva n some of the Bellator fighters will be able to compete in Kickboxing matches so that has some appeal to it but for what it is Bellator Kickboxing is pretty good
