Rebney had responded to Dana's commentsby saying that Dana was being hypocritical as they (Zuffa) tried to match King Mo's Bellator deal after releasing him from Strikeforce.

Dana responded to that on his Twitter account saying the following when asked about the situation and their attempt to match Mo's deal:

not true, we cut king mo and his manager came back to us and asked If WE wanted to match and we said no. Reb is wrong

...

the right is in the contract but when u cut a guy u dont fuck with him when he is trying to make a living. Bad shit

...

it's dirty as u can get in the fight biz to do that to a guy

If true, Dana is certainly in the right on not being a hypocrite. He did go on later to say that he has no problems with Rebney and that he's been mostly "a quiet guy doing his thing."

Maybe it's Sam Caplan and not Bjorn dealing with the contracts. I've heard some things from some contracted fighters' management.

First of all there is no comparison...  Tyson Nam was never given a fight in Bellator so they released him and then they tried to hold him to a matching clause after he made a name for himself on his own.

Bellator could simply go out and sign every prospect out there, never give them a fight... release them and if they ever become a name on their own they come knocking with a lawsuit, matching rights, etc... This is criminal.

This Bastard Bjorn Rebney has been releasing guys and then suing them or threatening to sue them once they became names.

At some level Bellator is doing this already. They have been signing a lot of Euro talent and most of them have no fights coming up.

these idiots at bellator dont realize how many bridges they've burnt... the mainstream camps have been keeping away their real prospect from them because of this nonsense... so bellator went crawling to guam and other places like m1 (where fighters are treated even worse) to sign people... and now they are burning whatever bridges were left to them.
