This was completely avoidable had they made a concession and booked Alvarez/Chandler II immediately after to try and appease their star, who was possibly looking for an out.... But all this jibberjabber about a PPV is a total crock of shit and Bjorn is making himself look bad the longer this goes on.
I remember reading about the SEG/Mark Kerr lawsuit from the early days of the UFC and this feels quite similar in that, it is rooted in pettiness and is an utter waste of everyone's time and money.
