I'm getting the impression they offered to match the pay, but will only have him fight 1-2 times a year and he would rather go to ufc to fight 2-3 times a year against better opponents for a chance at the big bucks.

Could also have to do with sponsorships. Its a bummer, I feel for the guy. He seems to be trying his best and bellator is effing him over. Scummy and questionable behavior by bellator

Its points on PPV, I suspect Bellator matched the show/win...

Bellator cant match a % of X when X is an undetermined variable.

Can people finally stop acting like Bjorn is a much better guy than Dana, and one who respects his athletes?
He's a businessman, just like every other promoter. It all comes down to being profitable and controlling as much of the market as possible. Stop pretending that Bellator fights for the little guy. They don't. Phone Post

Alvarez had the chance to sign with Zuffa a long time ago..

But I hate seeing fighters being sued for shit like this.

What exactly is going on? I missed the first few minutes of the interview -

Bellator did not match UFC's offer so they're suing him? Is that correct? Thanks

^ bellator didnt match the offer so they are suing eddie to keep him on the sidelines as punishment for not resigning with them.

standard operating procedures for bellator.

So it's being said...

It just sucks for Eddie. He's going to go through this bs now. I wonder how many fights he could have had without all of this controversy!

I realize he's to blame to some extent, BUT STILL! Phone Post

Bellator is just sullying their brand with this stuff. Just let him go. Its to early in the game for you guys to think you can match zuffa. Get your spike shit straight and then see if you can enter the ppv market.

Billy Joe Rottoncrotch - Dana White would never do something like this.

BJ Penn and Randy Couture will back me up.

you obsession is showing. look, when dana fucks up, he gets called out on it. this isnt about dana. bellator is screwing Eddie over.

you sound defensive. like an ex-gf that got her ass dumped and is bitter.
