Bellator MMA Has An Opportunity To Capitalize On The Donald Trump Phenomenon

Postby MRPLATANO » Mar 20. 2017, 16:15

Over the past five months, there have been several reports that the Russian government tried to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. According to Fortune.com, in early January the CIA came to a conclusion that "the Russian government was responsible for hacks of the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign." Due to these reports, Bellator has an opportunity to capitalize on America's biggest story for the foreseeable future (Donald Trump) by booking Fedor vs. Chael Sonnen. This is because Sonnen is known to be a fighter who will try to find information about the opponent or their home country in an attempt to irritate him and his fans. For instance, during the build-up to his fight with Tito Ortiz Sonnen revealed that Tito's car got repossessed due to financial struggles which angered Ortiz. As a result of this, in a potential matchup with Fedor, Sonnen will use the information about Russia trying to help Trump win the election to attack him. For example, Sonnen may say that Vladimir Putin agreed to help Trump with the election because he knew that having control over the United States would allow him to have some influence over what happens in the world. The potential remarks by Sonnen will give off the impression that Russia is beneath the United States which will anger Fedor and his fans because people have a tendency to believe that their country is on equal footing with the rest of the world. Therefore this fight indirectly becomes a between Russia vs. the United States with people from both countries tuning in to support their country and countryman which is bound to generate big ratings.

Furthermore, the company can use the potential buzz around this fight to expose some of their other talents to a big audience. For instance, the company can book Andrey Koreshkov vs. Lorenz Larkin to follow the Russia vs. the United States theme. If the public likes the action, there is an increased likelihood that they will invest in the talent and tune in the next time they fight.

Not interested in Chael vs. Fedor.

How about Wandy or Rampage?

I am not interested in Chael vs Fedor as a fight but based on the precedent Coker has set i think he would be interested in the build up because casuals will pay attention. Furthermore i think he would book Wandy vs Rampage as well

I think Chael is pro-Trump so I'm not sure why he would spout the liberal media propaganda narrative about the Russians helping Trump. He even praises Putin here.

Unless Coker doesn't know that Trump supporters don't believe the Russians helped Trump.

Yes this is true but he could reverse course to sell the fight by saying while I support Trump my belief is that the Russian government tried to help trump because they wanted more influence over the world and Russia doesn't have enough popularity and star power as a country to do that. Furthermore remember that Chael has been caught lying in the past so he can attack Russia just to promote the fight and after he can say i lied to get people to pay attention

Hmm, if he reversed course, than I'll know he's faking it.

I think there may be a way Chael still be able to incite the Russian crowd without bringing the election into it and also come across more genuine. Chael said in the past that Pride fights were fixed so he could use that to say Fedor's fights were fixed, that Fedor is fake, and that the Russian judges robbed Maldonado because they're in bed with Fedor which carries a subtle message saying that Russia is corrupted.

Even if I'm not feeling it 100%, I'm not saying that what you said won't work or won't happen, MRPLATANO. You've predicted some things in the past that I didn't believe would happen, but it ended up happening to my surprise :shock: so ... :lol:  It'll be interesting to see if it indeeds happens. I won't be counting it out, and will be staying tuned. ;)

Both of us will know he is faking but the casuals most likely won't bother to do the research to investigate whether his claims are consistent

No proof there was any collusion with Russians.
