Earlier this week, Bellator president Scott Coker sent the MMA world into a frenzy when he said he would be happy to co-promote with the UFC so Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima could face off against his counterpart in the UFC, Kamaru Usman.
However, this isn't the first time a rival promoter has attempted to co-promote with the world's largest MMA organisation. UFC president Dana White has always shot down any idea of the UFC doing any kind of promotion with another company.
It has often been reported that one of the reasons MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko did not sign with the UFC following the collapse of the Affliction MMA promotion in 2009, was because Fedor's manager Vadim Finkelchtein wanted any fights the Russian had in the UFC to be part of a co-promotion venture between the UFC and Russian organisation M-1 Global.
Still, that was more than ten years ago, and in recent years Bellator, under the stewardship of Coker, has made some astute signings to cement themselves as number two in the MMA world.
But what if White had a change of heart? What could a UFC versus Bellator supercard look like?
