Tim just get signed by Bellator and win the title. Then when the UFC makes you an offer, tell em to shove it. Tim has a chance to build his brand in Bellator, it's true the opposition may not be at the same level as the UFC, but those guys fight fucking hard in those tourneys. Winning a Bellator means more and more after every season of amazingly entertaining fights. Tim could enjoy being the first UFC and Bellator champion and retire with a smile on his face having turned down an offer from Dana and the UFC. That would be the smart thing to do, because going in against guys like Cain, Dos Santos, Overreem, and Cromier is just asking for a humiliating loss and a swift cut from Dana.

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
