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

BJ Penn and Randy Couture will back me up.

Randy sued Zuffa

BJ blatantly broke his contract and never got sued by Zuffa

No way the offer is equal their is so much more money to be made in ufc in the short and long run through sponsors, bonuses, and exposure

-Bellator did not match

-They are suing Eddie

-Eddie cant say much else due to lawsuit

Bjork Rebney strikes again!

I'm sure they matched financially. Normally the contract will stop that they only need to match financially. Alvarez and co are prob making the argument that being broadcast on fox is a form of compensation therefore Bellator would need to up their offer to really match UFC's. That's an interpretation issue which will come down to the courts IMO. Phone Post

Lobo8 - 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.
This is a really good point. Theyre gonna lose a lot of goodwill w the hardcore fans, which are the only ppl who give a shit about bellator Phone Post

I love Bellator's fights, but, goddamn, they pull so much litigious shit.  Dave Herman, Jonathan Brookins, Tyson Nam, Eddie Alvarez.  Ridiculous.

You're talking semantics.

Zuffa has gone to war with many fighters over the years.

Whether Zuffa sued them or they sued Zuffa in response to something shady Zuffa did to them.

I think the point is that, what you are bringing up has absolutely nothing to do with this. Nobody questioned whether Zuffa has pulled shady shit in the past, although, things obviously have been worked out between Penn/Couture/UFC.

The point is that Bellator is fucking Eddie right NOW, which is BS and people are allowed to shit on Bellator for it, just as when people shit on Zuffa when they mess up.

^ 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.


Standard for UFC too. Zuffa has in place the same sort of contract with it's champions and bigger PPV draws. Funny how quickly the UG forgets the hell Zuffa put Randy Couture through.
