Bellator will already be countered by Live TUF on FX (they're switching nights, too). The problem with SF as a feeder is that the average fan won't want to tune into the Lil brother show (how'd the CFL's TV coverage?), so they have to try & prop it up with talent at the top to at least give the appearance of comparability. Moving a highly recognizable, but no longer title-worthy, name like Florian would do just that. If he wins, it lends credibility to SF because they can point to how he's mixed it up with the top names. If he loses, it lends even more credibility to SF because this star from the UFC got tooled by their champ.
