Coker and Rebney's contrary views of co promotion


The Fight Nerd: "Co-promoting is not a problem?"

Bjorn Rebney: "No! Not only is it not a problem, but we wouldn't even have to do a typical orchestration of a co-promotional event where everybody argues and fights and scratches and claws. We would go to San Jose, I know some... I married a woman in my first marriage from San Jose, there's some spectacular restaurants and great hotels, we would make ourselves at home, we would come in and we would take three fights. It would be great. From a fan perspective, with the CEO hat off, I mean can you see Ben Askren fighting Nick Diaz? Can you see Eddie Alvarez and Gilbert Melendez? Jacare versus Hector Lombard?"

Scott Coker: “Bjorn’s saying he’s texting me 11, 12 times an hour. I’m not sure if he’s trying to be a level-five clinger or anything like that, but I haven’t received one text from the guy. “I’m not sure what the motivation is, but maybe it’s just his way of staying in the media, staying in the press.”

'For them to say, ‘Oh, Gilbert’s ducking him’ -- come on, let’s be real. Gilbert has ducked nobody, and neither has Eddie. These are two great fighters. The thing is, if Bjorn’s serious about doing this, then there has to be a business component that has to be worked out. Unfortunately that hasn’t started yet."

“It’s very obvious to me he’s using the media as a platform to try to do his business, but that’s not how we’re going to do business. If he wants to do business, call me or fly out here, come sit down with me. If there’s a deal to be made, we’ll try to make it, but I’m not going to do it in the media.”

With the recent Text messages released, it appears as if Scott Coker was lying about this. Which comes as no surprise.somebody quick ask him for a response. " He'll have a big announcement for you in just a few weeks." Creepy, Shady, Stalkerish..........all the shit I've read about Rebney on Twitter...the fact is it appears Coker is not telling the truth.
