In some ways they already had a feeder league with WEC. Especially before they got rid of the higher weight divisions in WEC. They closed off the bigger weight classes and then basically just absorbed them. So I honestly do not get why you want to turn it into a feeder thing. They will just merge it before they do that. IMO they would have merged it already if they did not have the big wrench of having a partnership contract with Showtime for a couple more years. After that is up they probably will merge them, despite what they say.

As I said I like what Bellator is doing a lot. But IMO you are pumping up Bellator too much and also devaluing the Strikeforce overall roster too much.
