    Who looks like the best fit for Bellator 100’s fight vs. Luis Sergio “Junior” Melo, now that Matt Riddle has dropped out?

    • marteny

      How about Lyman Good? He’s free from his Bellator contract since July, but nobody’s come knocking for him. He didn’t rule out coming back to Bellator, and now a tournament position has opened up. Bellator needs a solid competitior badly for Melo, but is Good too stiff? Short notice fights usually seem to be given to a lesser opponent who has to do or die. But they need a competitor fast, to fight September 20th, 2013. Lyman and company is already familiar with Bellator’s contract and language. Would they give him leeway to leave anytime, if he fills the short-order fight? It IS another paycheck and continued exposure.

      • D.C. Ross

        Good is definitely a possibility, but I’m guessing Bellator will go in house with their replacement. They just finished Fight Master and have 16 fighters under contract that now need fights. Cristiano Souza, Cole Williams, or Eric Bradley could all be good replacements.
