If you're an MMA fan, any MMA event is worth watching. With MMA there's always action and an exciting knockout or submission is always on the brink of happening. With that being said, Bellator 47 isn't packed with big names in MMA.
What Bellator offers to MMA fans with Bellator 47 is the history and reputation of putting on good shows. Check out a previous post, Best of Bellator MMA Fights.
They've had some great shows with exciting action coming by way of submission of the year and knockout of the year candidates. Even though there aren't big MMA names/fighters on this card, I do expect it to be an exciting night of fights.
