BREAKING: Court denies Alvarez's application for an injunction that would have allowed him to fight at UFC 159. The legal fight goes on.

 

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

I'm in the courtroom for the Eddie Alvarez hearing that could determine his fighting future. I spoke to him; he's nervous but hopeful.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Early on, Judge Linares seems skeptical that Alvarez would be irreparably harmed by missing out on UFC 159 opportunity

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

FOX vs Spike is being argued now, and whether that is a fair match in the contract.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Alvarez's attorney arguing that Bellator saying they will put him on PPV's is an "illusory" match.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Judge to Alvarez's side on Bellator's PPV match issue: "you're asking me to assume they're going to breach a contract".

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Alvarez counsel citing his world ranking dipping due to public perception of Bellator as issue of non-monetary damages.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Bellator counsel saying Spike/Viacom platform has proven strong launching point for PPV.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Bellator attorney says a match is "monetary, plain & simple," and says they matched.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Bellator: "you can't suggest with a straight face that Fox is better than Spike. They're both mega-entities."

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Bellator attorney: "I'm representing to the court that yes, we have a major fight lined up" for

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Decision on will be made later today. Either judge will grant injunction allowing him to fight at UFC 159, or court process goes on

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

I spoke to Eddie at conclusion of hearing. He feels 50/50 on outcome but feels the judge was fair with his questions. Waiting game now.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Seems so yes RT : either way court process goes on, no? This is only a TRO or preliminary injunction hearing

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Eddie's family is with him here in Newark. He's gonna hang with them to pass the time while waiting.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

Still waiting to hear on a decision. Many have asked how I think it will go. Not sure. Judge probed both sides fairly IMO.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

No, projected PPV earnings (actual numbers) were not discussed. It was spoken about in broader terms.

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

On that one, judge seemed to indicate he had to take Bellator at their word they would produce PPV. If they don't Alvarez can sue

Mike Chiappetta MMA@MikeChiappetta

No. In fact they argued that while Eddie's only on a UFC ppv "undercard" (their words, not mine), in Bellator he'd be main event

I wonder if signing bonus could play into this. Let's say the UFC says oh, and here's a million dollars. What would Bellator do at that point?

I don't think Eddie cares where he fights if he's making the same amount of money in either organization. It will just be a joke if the court decides that the Bellator PPV equals the UFC PPV.

Zing!

 

Poor Eddie is going to have to now waste prime years in Bellator.  

I can't understand how Bellator's illusion they will hold a PPV can hold up in court.  That is some Enron-esque BS.  "We are totally going to make a product that will make us millions so put millions of dollars on our books."
