EXCLUSIVE - Bjorn Rebney: "We are not going to sign Jon Fitch"

 

Well that sucks.  I guess it's WSOF for him then.

Is it really necessary to come out publically and state you aren't going to hire a guy like that?


Why kick a guy while he's down?

I think part of it has to do with the fact that it seems Bellator has too much pride to sign ex-UFC fighters.

I know.


Reminds me of the time my girl dumped me and her worst enemy Sheila, posted on my Facebook that there were plenty of fish in the sea but that she "still wouldn't fuck" me. Phone Post

It's because they already have their own wrestle fuck champion in Askeren.

someone could just start a new organization with all the fighters that just got released, then the ufc would eventually buy them out and theyd be back in the big time

They said the same thing about Barnett. It is stupid that they don't want to sign guys just because it might show the UFC has better fighters Phone Post

too bad. He's a dominant fighter and would pose problems for 99% of their roster.

Thats not too far off from "we release top 10 fighters" who are 1-2-1 in his last 4 and are 6-2-1 in his last 9 and has 3 losses in his 7 year UFC career.

I heard Dana's media scrum and he raised some good points but I definitely think they jumped the gun on Fitch. I'll be interested in hearing who the next 100 fighters they cut are.

It'd be stupid for Bellator to not sign ANY of them.

Makes some sense though.

They want to establish their own fighters and their own brand to prove they have the best in the world.

Guy is out of his mind. He should realize all the support Fitch is getting and capitalize on that. Phone Post

That's exactly why they don't want to sign him. They know he could probably come in and own everybody. Phone Post
