Bellator 149 is definitely an event that happened. Is that a good or bad thing? That's up for debate.
The main event and co-main event were as bad as anybody could have predicted, but in very different ways. Kimbo Slice vs. Dada 5000 turned into one of the all-time best (or worst) freakshow fights, while Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock 3 ended with an unfortunate degree of controversy.
The rest of the card, unfortunately, got somewhat forgotten in the shuffle, but actually featured some very strong performances from Bellator staples.
