  1. This is totally disrespectful to Cindy Dandois and Roberta Paim. Those two should just be outright UFC signees. Roberta Paim, another move by the Scott Coker’s Bellator regime of not giving a fighter fights in order to make money and a name for themselves (sarcasm). Jozette Cotton’s biggest fight will be the weight cuts if she advances. Hopefully, she goes the Baby Joe Taimanglo route of keeping her weight around weight to being her fight weight to ease herself the worry of cutting weight. I’m not too worried about any of these ladies getting signed because most all of them will. As usual, Bellator is a day late and a dollar short with not taking the first step with signing any of these women and giving them fights.

  2. If Cindy Dandois and Pannie Kianzad are not
    in the show it’s bullshit. And Zoila… damn that’s an veteran for sure!
