So far Coker is doing good with Bellator. I liked Strikeforce back then too. People forget that a lot of top guys fought there. Fedor, Rousey, Werdum, Melendez, Jacare, Rockhold, etc. If Coker and his team have the same eye for talent and Viacom's money, they can start to compete with UFC and be a thorn in their sides in a few years.

Cowboy got destroyed by Pettis, Bendo twice, RDA and Nate Diaz. Destroyed. So I agree on Cowboy
Alvarez needs to show me something, I'll wait
I'll give Cowboy benefit of the doubt for now. He got crushed by the top guys but he said he's broke now so he's hungry. Maybe this Cowboy is motivated and ready for the top guys. He could be like MLB and NBA players that only play great and give it their all during the final year of their contracts cause they want more money the next year.
And if Alvarez wins I hope they don't give him a title shot. I'm thinking that may be a clause in his new contract guaranteeing him a title shot next if he wins his first fight. If he wins, give him Khabib when he's healthy. I know people love Alvarez but the competition in Bellator at that weight class wasn't the best. The only top fighter he faced recently was Chandler. And in my eyes I think Chandler won both fights.
