I'm not put him down or promoting the question is if he is say #3 in his div he won't get a easy start in the UFC. Say he loses within a few fights the UFC cuts him what will Eddie recieve after that. Yes he may get more sponsership money in the UFC but he has to win. Bellator he can cruze as champion and still be able to get great side money. In his case being in the UFC may not bring him any more $$$$$, but it does offer the chance to be #1 in the world rankings.
Some times you have to watch what you wish for.
